Dr. Kay Henry, DDS, PC
I grew up in Evanston and married my high school sweetheart, Mark. Mark is involved with event and meeting planning. We have 2 daughters Jessica and Amanda. Jessica is a graphic artist and Amanda is a dentist. We are excited that Amanda works part time here with us in Crystal Lake.
I started working as an assistant in my father’s dental office at the age of 16 and went to dental hygiene school at SIU. I graduated from the University of Texas Dental School in Houston.
We were happy to move back to Illinois shortly after and I have been practicing dentistry ever since. The thing I love most about dentistry is the relationships I build with my patients. I enjoy attending continuing education seminars throughout the year to learn new techniques so I can provide the best dentistry possible. I strive to create a calming atmosphere where patients can feel both comfortable and confident. We all find creating beautiful smiles exciting.
I am proud to be at the helm of a fabulous team of professionals who are primarily focused on patients and enjoy working together.

Dr. Amanda Henry, DDS
I have been in the dental field for 10 years, starting as a dental assistant. I became interested in dentistry at a young age observing my mother teaching dentistry at Northwestern Dental School’s weekend volunteer program. Now I’m excited to be a Dentist myself and joining this practice creating healthy beautiful smiles.
I live in Chicago. I completed my undergraduate degree at Indiana University where I majored in biology, with minors in chemistry and psychology. I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry. During my time in school I received the “Golden Scaler” award for clinical excellence in periodontics. I also had the opportunity to travel to China to practice Dentistry where I experienced a new and interesting culture and dental treatments.
I love providing care to patients of all ages, especially children! In my spare time I enjoy yoga, volunteering, traveling and taking Spanish classes.
