Her goal is to make every patient feel as comfortable as her own pediatric dentist made her feel.

Dr. Katie graduated from the Kornberg School of Dentistry at Temple University in 2015, where she graduated summa cum laude and was accepted into the dental honors society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon. Prior to dental school, Dr. Katie graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2011 (Go Panthers!).
