Meet Our Clinical Team
Kat is a Florida native who earned her hygiene degree here at Harrisburg Area Community College. Kat’s mission as a hygienist is to help patients improve their oral health and have positive experiences in the dental office. Her favorite part is seeing her pediatric patients and parents become motivated in perfecting oral hygiene care at home and keeping away tooth decay, or as she likes to call them, sugar-bugs! In her free time, she enjoys painting, baking, and spending time outdoors with her husband, horse, and doodle.
Jesse began his career in the dental field in 2004. Growing up, Jesse wore braces for eight years which he feels gave him the empathy and understanding to create a positive and fun experience for our visiting pediatric patients. Outside of work, Jesse enjoys spending time with his family and other outdoor activities.
