Kathi, RDH

Kathi is such an amazing and indispensable asset to our office. With over 13 years with us, she is very close with our patients. She definitely treats them all like family and we think the feeling is mutual. Originally from Arkansas, she first taught math to Junior High and High School students. She then obtained her degree in Dental Hygiene from Salt Lake Community College in 2000. We are so grateful she changed paths and became part of our team.

You can find Kathi cheering on her Utah Football, or before the game in the tailgate lot with her husband, Bob, and her 3 kids, Brad, Amanda, and Bailey. “Go Utes!”
