Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Dr. Kathleen Garry, owner of New Prague Dental Center, has practiced dentistry in New Prague since 1999.Â Being from the once small town of Victoria, she enjoys treating the families from the New Prague and surrounding areas.Â Â Volunteering on a dental mission trip to Honduras as a dental assistant sparked her desire to go on to become a dentist.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Graduating from the University Of Minnesota School Of Dentistry, Dr. Garry received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1993.Â She then completed a one year general practice residency program at Hennepin County Medical Center.Â Dr. Garry says â€œGetting my education along with helping raise my two sons helped me gain organizational skills so needed for running a busy dental office.â€
Â Â Â Â Â Â Dr. Garry continues to improve her skills and her practice by continuing education courses and with incorporating new technologies.Â Her professional memberships include the American Dental Association, the Minnesota Dental Association and the Midwest Dental Study Club.Â She volunteers for Give Kids A Smile and one of her goals is to go on more frequent mission trips.Â She is grateful for and enjoys working with her talented staff at New Prague Dental Center.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Dr. Garry resides with her husband, John Hilla, and an energetic Jack Russel terrier in Credit River Township near Carlâ€™s Lake.Â She has two grown sons and John has three grown daughters and one grand-daughter.Â Along with family activities, Dr. Garry loves to garden and design and landscape her yard, which has gotten in the way of roller blading and biking.Â She gave up competitive running a number of years ago, but stillÂ Â ventures into the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming to backpack.Â And, at the end of the day, she loves to read a good book.
