Meet Dr. Dively

Please Welcome Dr. Katherine L. Dively to our practice.
Dr. Kate is very excited to team up with Dr. Kiessling and join Kiessling Family Dental. She has been working with Dr. Kiessling for over 3 years at Crosstown Dental and volunteering at Christ Lutheran Dental Clinic in downtown Harrisburg. A native of Michigan, she attended the University of Maryland Dental School, graduating in the top of her class. Upon graduation, she completed a rigorous residency at York Hospital in York, PA. For the past 12 years, Dr. Kate has been in private practice in South Central Pennsylvania, serving patients of all ages. She is committed to staying on the cutting edge of dentistry and takes numerous hours of continuing education in areas such as digital dentistry, esthetics, nitrous oxide sedation, laser dentistry, pediatrics, and orthodontics. She is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA) and the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), and the American Association of Women Dentists (AAWD).
“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. 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!”
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. They reside in nearby Hummelstown. She enjoys running, baking, biking, and
family day trips to new destinations. She looks forward to meeting you and helping you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile.
