Dr. Kirby Kavanaugh, BA/DDS, has been practicing dentistry for over 24 years in the Northland, where she lives, and relocated her practice to Zona Rosa in November 2005. Dr. Kavanaugh was born and raised in Gladstone, Missouri and comes from a dental family background, as her father and brother are well-respected orthodontists in the Northland. Her mother was an amazing woman who taught Dr. Kavanaugh her softer, gentler side. A song that she likes to listen to because it reminds her of her mom is “Wind Beneath My Wings” by Better Midler.
Dr. Kavanaugh graduated with honors from Oak Park High School and attended the University of Missouri’s six year accredited dental program. She graduated from dental school in 1994 with a Bachelor of Arts/Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree.
Dr. Kavanaugh has two beautiful daughters, Madison and McKenzie. Both girls help at the dental office many times with their mom, which gives the office that genuine family environment. Dr. Kavanaugh recently remarried in November 2013 to a wonderful man. Don’t be surprised to see many pictures of Brandon, and the girls around the office.
Dr. Kavanaugh is a member of many professional organizations, including the Park Hill School District Parent Teacher Association, Northland BNI 1, and the Harvest Ball Society which raise monies for charities in the Northland. She is very involved in her girl’s activities as they are both in high school, and very busy, successful, teenage girls.
