“I went into dentistry because I am passionate about helping people and it is my mission to make coming to the dentist a positive experience. With today’s technology such as the Solea laser, dentistry can now be pain-free and pleasant. I know that dental anxiety affects many people young and old, and it is my goal to alleviate their fears through a relaxed environment and a gentle touch. I want all dental visits to end with a smile!”
Originally from Michigan, Dr. Kate also believes in giving back to the community and regularly volunteers at Christ Lutheran Church dental clinic in downtown Harrisburg. She is also a volunteer soccer coach and girl scout co-leader for her children. Outside of dentistry, Dr. Kate stays busy with her husband Alan, a native of Elizabethtown, PA and their three young children, Addison, Andrew, and Brynn. She enjoys running, baking, biking, and traveling. She looks forward to meeting you and helping you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile!
