Dr. Katherine McKitrick


Dr. Katherine McKitrick grew up in Oregon. She began her healthcare journey at Oregon State University where she graduated cum laude with a Bachelor Degree in Nutrition & Food Management. She then attended Illinois State University where she earned a Master of Science degree with a focus on Nutrition. After working as a Registered Dietitian for a short time, Dr. McKitrick decided she wanted a more hands on approach to health care. She spent time shadowing dentists and physicians and quickly determined that dentistry was the path for her. Dr. McKitrick and her husband relocated to sunny Charleston, South Carolina and worked for a pediatric dentist before attending dental school at the Medical University of South Carolina.

While in dental school, Dr. McKitrick spent additional hours beyond her requirements in the specialty clinics. She found endodontics to be particularly interesting and liked the opportunity the endodontists had to have an immediate impact on patient’s quality of life by relieving pain. As a senior, Dr. McKitrick earned the South Carolina Association of Endodontists Scholarship Award. After graduation, she stayed at the Medical University of South Carolina to complete her post-graduate specialty certificate in Endodontics and Master of Science Degree in Dentistry and served as chief resident.

Dr. McKitrick and her husband, Andy, are extremely busy with their three small children. In their free time they enjoy playing at the parks, trying new restaurants, and cheering for the Green Bay Packers. When she has a moment to herself, Dr. McKitrick daydreams of visiting warm and exotic locations around the world.
