Meet Dr. Kavanaugh

Dr. Kirby Kavanaugh, BA/DDS,  has been practicing dentistry for over 26 years in the Northland.  Her practice has been in Zona Rosa since 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 Bette 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.

Continuing Education

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 one daughter is attending Baker University, and her other daughter is a senior in high school. Both girls are very busy, successful young ladies.


Outside the Office

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 remarried in November 2013 to a wonderful man. Don’t be surprised to see many pictures of Brandon, and the girls around the office.
