Dr. Kathleen McCafferty
Dr. Katie, a board certified Diplomat to the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, completed her undergraduate education at Harvard University and was awarded her D.M.D. from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Her post-doctoral training was completed at Boston Children’s Hospital and the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, where she received her Certificate in Pediatric Dentistry in 2015. During residency, Dr. Katie did research to determine if antibiotic therapy caused an increase in molar-incisor hypomineralization in patients with Sickle Cell Disease. She is a big believer in preventative dentistry and loves to help coach families on best oral health practices.
Dr. Katie was born and raised in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. During her free time, she enjoys being active, playing sports such as soccer, ice hockey, golf, tennis and swimming. In high school, she was a member of the Canadian Jr. National Soccer Team and the Team Ontario Hockey Team. Her love of sports then allowed her the opportunity to play both Division I Soccer and Ice Hockey while attending Harvard University. Unfortunately, she was unable to come away with a national hockey title, having lost in the finals in back to back years. Although she spent many hours involved with athletics, she also focused on her studies, obtaining her BA in Human Evolutionary Biology and ensuring she had all her dental school prerequisites.
When she can’t get outside to enjoy the sun, she loves reading, cooking and, of course, spending time with her husband (who was a former patient of Dr. Mike Coppe) and her children Adeline, Laurel, Emmett and Colleen.
