Dr. Kate was born in Long Island and later moved to California with her family. However, she has a special place in her heart for the Capital Region as this is where her parents met in college! She is a Board-Certified pediatric dentist and a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree was completed at Tufts University in Boston. Following dental school, she completed an extensive two-year pediatric dental residency program at Schneider Children's Hospital/Long Island Medical Center in New Hyde Park, NY. With her additional training, she gained valuable knowledge and experience with in-office conscious sedation, general anesthesia, behavioral management techniques and trauma on-call cases.
Dr. Kate enjoys staying active by kayaking, hiking, and traveling. She also enjoys spending time with her husband and sons, John & Paul. Her boys keep her very busy especially coaching basketball!
Dr. Kate is an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and is current with Pediatric Advanced Life Support.
I love working with children. I grew up in a big family and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else! I love working together with families to help them have healthy smiles. I always want kids and their parents to feel comfortable, safe and have fun!
