Kate is one of our family dentists
Dr Katherine Aitken began her career in the Royal Australian Air Force as a Dental Officer.
She has always been passionate about using her skills and knowledge to help others, with her dedication even taking her to remote areas of Australia to provide care to Indigenous communities and overseas to volunteer on a number of humanitarian aid projects.
Kate graduated Dentistry at the University of Sydney in 2008 with Honours. She has an additional Science degree and has special interests in early childhood development and oral surgery, having completed extensive further studies in these areas. Kate is also a Member of the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh.
Since 2009, Kate has worked in private practices in both Sydney and Newcastle. She strives to deliver quality preventative dentistry in a compassionate and gentle way and prides herself on being able to make even the most anxious patients feel at ease.
When she’s not creating confident smiles at Dental House Gladesville, you can find Kate spending time with her family and friends. She loves her sport too and is often on the golf course. She has played competitive hockey and softball too – the reason behind her appreciation for a good quality mouthguard!
