Meet Katie

Lead Dental Hygienist

Katie is from Richmond, Utah, the same town Napoleon Dynamite was filmed. She moved to Arizona in 2008 to attended college at the University of Arizona and earned her bachelor’s degree in physiology. She then attended Fortis College, a dental hygiene school in Phoenix. Katie believes in giving back to others, as one of the founders of a dental mission group, she travels twice a year to Puerto Peñasco, Mexico. In Mexico she provides continuing dental care for the community. She has also worked as a hygienist at an HIV clinic in downtown Phoenix and she volunteers at St. Joseph’s Hospital. Additionally, she has worked as a CAN at a university medical center. Katie loves her job as our lead hygienist. She is a microbiology nerd with a focus on preventive dentistry. When asked if she could improve dentistry, she plans to use her pre med and dental hygiene knowledge to further study the connection between poor oral health and the possible cause of systemic diseases. Katie believes that knowledge is power. Her desire is to educate her patients to decrease oral disease. When Katie is away from the office, she enjoys weight lifting, yoga, reading and playing with her border collie.
