Have you met Dr. Amy Newkirk yet?
Dr. Amy joined the Young Dental Care Team in early 2016. She would love to meet you at your next appointment. Feel free to drop in and say hello!
A native of Lindenhurst, Illinois, Dr. Newkirk comes to us with over 12 years of dental experience. She received her Bachelors of Art in Biology in 1999 from Truman State University in Kirksville, MO. She then completed her Doctorate in Dental Medicine, graduating from the School of Dental Medicine at Southern Illinois University in 2004. After graduation, Dr. Newkirk spent a year completing advanced training in the management of medically complex patients and patients with special needs as a resident at Illinois Masonic Medical Center in Chicago. Dr. Newkirk then began working in a private practice in Evanston, IL. She has spent the past eight years serving the nearby community of Sycamore, IL.
Dr. Newkirk enjoys working together with her patients to achieve and maintain their healthy smiles. As a mom of two small children, she emphasizes the importance of good oral care starting from an early age. She looks forward to getting to know the families of our community and watching these families grow.
Outside of the office, Dr. Newkirk enjoys spending time with her husband, Randy, and their two children, Reilly (age 5) and Garrett (age 4). As a family, the Newkirk’s enjoy exploring the outdoors while camping, kayaking, and hiking.
Dr. Newkirk is an excellent and attentive dentist, and her addition to Young Dental Care will help us continue our mission of providing our patients with the best possible dental experience in a caring and knowledgeable environment and in making every dental visit as friendly and comfortable as possible.
I am truly delighted to have Dr. Newkirk join Dr. Whitney, me , and the rest of the Young Dental Care team.
Dr. Kimberley M. Young
