Dr. Kurt Kacer


My philosophy is to provide the highest quality orthodontic care in a friendly, caring and fun environment. Being an orthodontist is the best job in the world! The office provides a valuable service in an upbeat setting that makes people feel better about themselves and allows them to enjoy better dental health. Providing the positive change a great smile creates is very satisfying.

Education

The hands-on training that I received in my years of school has enabled me to provide effective and accurate treatment to my patients. At the completion of my orthodontic training, I was awarded the Clinical Excellence Award. In addition, I furthered my knowledge by attending continuing education courses to keep up on the latest advancements in my field.

DR. CAROLINE KACER


Education

I was raised in Tucson, Arizona most of my life. I attended the University of Arizona and received my Bachelors in Science in the area of Physiology with a minor in chemistry. My pursuit to follow in my father’s footsteps as an oral surgeon lead me to continue my career by attending dental school at Case Western Reserve University where I met my husband and bought my first real winter coat and boots.  I had a passion of helping people and being part of a community that helps people smile.  After finishing my DMD I attended Montefiore Medical Center in Bronx, NY to complete my residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.  It was here that I gained my knowledge in facial trauma and specialty in wisdom teeth extraction and implants. During all the long hours in school I was still able to squeeze in some yoga classes and some amazing Broadway shows.

Outside the office

Now that I am back in Tucson I continue to develop my practice as a yogi. I play in the garden with my daughter, Grace and my husband Kurt. I love to cook and enjoy an occasional volleyball game.  I enjoy my work and love the interactions and new relationships I make with my patients daily.  If I am not on the ice taking care of one of our Tucson Roadrunners Hockey players I am at the University taking in a football game.

I am a member of the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology, participate in the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons(AAOMS), and the Western Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.  I participate in TuNidito and I am creating a nonprofit program “DEED4DEED” that focus on a pay it forward concept to help people receive dental needs by giving back to others.

It can affect our sense of well-being and our overall health. It can also affect our confidence and how we interact with others. In my career as a dentist, I have advanced my skill set through continued education to allow myself to provide my patients with the best in comprehensive care. It is my goal to provide each patient with an enjoyable and comfortable experience to help them in any way. I strive to understand what my patients’ goals are and to work with them to find the best solution.

I take pride in giving back to others especially in underserved areas. As a past member of the International Student Volunteer and Global Brigade groups, I have helped provide free dental care to many underserved areas such as the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Honduras, and Samoa. I have also helped with the communities here in Arizona through events such as Give Kids a Smile, Super Sealant Saturday, and Hopefest. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors whether it’s hiking or golfing with my friends and family.

 

DR. ATTY SMITH


Education

Helping others feel and look their best has always been a passion of mine. Schooling took me to attain a Bachelors of Arts from the University of St Thomas in St Paul. My love of the sciences and art drew me to dentistry where I saw how these two seemingly different aspects of my life could be melded into one. To reach this goal I received a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. The importance and love for continual learning has brought me through many post-grad trainings to be able to provide the latest techniques for helping people have healthy and beautiful smiles. Every day I strive to practice with compassion as I educate my patients of their treatments while providing the best care, I look forward to helping each patient achieve their oral health goals.
