Kay Henry, DDSKay Henry, DDS, PC

I grew up in Evanston and have two daughters, Jessica and Amanda. Jessica is a graphic designer and studying psychology. Amanda is a dentist. We are excited that Amanda works part time with us in Crystal Lake (she also works in Old Town), and Jessica helps us with our graphic design and website.

The desire for dentistry began as an assistant in my father’s dental office at the age of 16 and continued by going into dental hygiene. I graduated from the University of Texas Dental School in Houston.

We were happy to move back to Illinois shortly after dental school and have been practicing dentistry here ever since. The best part of dentistry is the relationships we build with our patients and the camaraderie we have among our team. Our team is kind and truly dedicated, but we do know how to have fun every day! We enjoy attending continuing education seminars throughout the year to learn new techniques so we can provide the best dentistry possible.

We strive to create a calming atmosphere where patients can feel both comfortable and confident. We all find creating beautiful smiles exciting.

I completed my undergraduate studies at Indiana University, where I studied biology, chemistry and psychology. I attended dental school at the University of Illinois-Chicago, from which I graduated in 2012. During my time in school I received the “Golden Scaler” award for clinical excellence in periodontics, and had the opportunity to travel to China to practice dentistry. My career in dentistry began as a dental assistant, and after completing my dental degree I began practicing as a dentist.

I complete over 100 hours of continuing education each year, and have received advanced training in implant dentistry and clear aligner treatment. I am affiliated with the Spear Education and Pankey Institute groups, as well as with the American Dental Association®.

As a dentist, I am dedicated to helping my patients of all ages achieve their healthiest, most beautiful smiles. I feel incredibly grateful to have my mother as my mentor and business partner, and I am so proud of what we have built and of our patients who have become like family.

I am married to Jordan, and I have a close relationship with my sister. My hobbies include yoga, learning Spanish, reading and traveling.
