Dulce Dudley, MD             

Dr Dudley has been in practice in Naples since 1988, when she completed her residency at Miami Children’s Hospital and moved here to start her practice of pediatrics. She enjoys taking care of children of all ages and would love to minister to more than the children’s physical needs.  She would love to share her love for Jesus with them and show them how to give back to others both locally and abroad. Dr Dudley believes that God gave her the talent to be a pediatrician and strives to honor Him as she works.

She has a heart for missions and travels with Orphans Heart to the Malnutrition Center in Guatemala to minister to the children and the staff at the center. She attends First Baptist Church of Naples where she is table leader in the women’s ministry, “Refresher” and facilitates women’s Bible studies during Enricher.

She is married to Ted Dudley who supports her in all that she does and has three stepsons-Drew, John and Charles, 2 grandsons-Gavin and Griffin, and one granddaughter, Alex.

Dr Dudley was raised a Catholic but left the church as a young girl. She started attending FBCN in the late nineties after her first husband passed away from leukemia. She accepted Christ as her LORD and Savior on January 22, 2000 at a Christian Women’s conference in Orlando and believes that God has called her to step out in faith at this time to share the Gospel with everyone that she comes in contact with.


 

 

 

 


Debbie Shepard, MD

Dr. Shepard has been in practice in Naples since 1998, when she moved from Birmingham, Alabama to join Dr. Dudley at Anchor Health Centers.  She completed her pediatric residency at the University of Alabama at Birmingham where she also graduated from medical school.  She enjoys taking care of children of all ages, and marvels at God’s handiwork when she sees children in the hospital and office.  Dr. Shepard strives to be accessible to her patients in the office, via phone, and technology.  

Dr. Shepard is currently Vice-Chair of the Department of Pediatrics at NCH and has admitting privileges for newborn and pediatric patients there.   In her spare time, Dr. Shepard is active in the small group ministry at Center Point Community Church, and also volunteers in the Youth Group and music ministry.  She has a very supportive husband, John, and 2 children:   Allie who attends First Baptist Academy and Cason, who attend Naples Christian Academy.  After hours, you will often find her on the sidelines of a soccer field or basketball court cheering on her children. 

Dr. Shepard’s journey of faith began when she accepted Jesus as her savior as an elementary school child.  She grew up in a nondenominational military church, and she believes that spiritual growth is based on developing and nurturing a personal relationship with Christ through bible study, prayer and involvement in a Christian community.
