Meet Dr. Kavanaugh

Dr. Kirby Kavanaugh, BA/DDS, has been practicing dentistry for over 29 years in the Northland. Dr. Kavanaugh was born and raised in Gladstone, Missouri, and comes from a dental family background, as her family and brother are well respected orthodontists in the Northland. Her mother was an amazing woman who taught Dr. Kavanaugh, her softer, gentler side. The 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/Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.

Continuing Education

Dr. Kavanaugh is involved within her community through surrounding school districts, Northland BNI 1, and different philanthropic groups. She has continued training in Botox treatment for TMD, and is very dedicated to her patients, dental team, practice, and family.

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. The girls are working towards their careers currently. Dr. Kavanaugh remarried in November 2013 to a wonderful man who is also a Kansas City police officer so that only reinforces her continued support of all first responders. Don't be surprised to see many pictures of Brandon and the girls around the office.
