Our Team


Katherine Bentley, RDHKatherine "Kat" Bentley, RDH
Practice Administrator

"I love helping my patients understand oral health. We have cameras that allow us to show our patients what we see and use educational videos to explain dental procedures. We have great conversations and it is really rewarding to see an improvement the next time they come to see me!"

Originally from Millerville, Kat received her Dental Hygiene degree from Columbus Technical College in 2007. She also holds a B.S. in Computer Science from Jacksonville State University, so she is very tech-savvy, which is a wonderful skill set in dentistry today!

As Practice Administrator, Kat is instrumental in managing our practice to meet our patients' needs with uncompromising excellence. Patients enjoy her warm, compassionate approach. A Mom herself, Kat loves helping children learn about their teeth and helping parents understand how to manage their child's dental health. Away from the office, Kat enjoys spending time with her husband and two children, as well as reading and baking.
