Welcome to Area Dental and Area Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery! My name is Kate and I am proud to have joined our leadership team in 2018, after 15+ years working as a pediatric nurse. I am passionate about patient care and each of our incredible team members. We are in the business of providing reasons to smile- literally in the dental sense and also in the way we serve our patients and each other. We work together to provide a calm, honest, friendly environment for each patient at each visit. We also work together to provide a positive, fun, and engaging work environment for all Area team members. When away from our three locations, you will find me somewhere with my husband and oh-so-fun kiddos. We dance while we cook. We play while we learn. We love the outdoors. I look forward to providing you reasons to smile!
