From your first visit to our office, you will notice the friendliness of our team, as well as the excellent level
of care they provide. We were very careful in selecting each team member, and their skilled dental work is
complemented by their pleasant personalities.
A graduate of the University of Nebraska at Lincoln with a bachelor of science degree and a graduate of Creighton
University in Omaha with a degree in occupational therapy, I have worked in the office for over 20 years processing
accounts payable, marketing the practice, and working with the staff and doctor. Most of my free time is spent with
our three daughters, Kelcy, Alyssa, and Sydney, and caring for our home and many pets in the country. My community
service over the years has been focused on companion animal rescue and rehabilitation.
I have been a dental assistant and administrative in the Sioux City area for the past 14 years. I love the dental
community and helping patients. I am married with two children at home, a son and daughter, with a new baby on the
way. I enjoy spending time with my two children, who keep me busy with dance, softball, and swimming.
I am new to dental assisting but come from a family where dental terminology is a part of my day, with my mom practicing and teaching dental hygiene. I have always had a strong interest in dental assisting and joined Dr. Kava’s
team this fall, where I have had the opportunity to learn a variety of dental procedures. I am from Elk Point, South Dakota and reside with my fur babies. I’m a huge animal lover and have a special love for the elderly. I have been a CNA and CMA for the last 5 years and still do temp work for a local staffing agency in my free time.
Katie is a native of Sioux City, Iowa. She graduated from Heelan High School and the Western Iowa Community College dental assisting program. She enjoys assisting, meeting new people and helping them with their treatment as well as comforting them when they are nervous. She loves being busy! In her free time she is happiest spending time with her husband and three young daughters.
Our talented team members bring years of combined dental experience to our ultra-modern office.
