She graduated from the prestigious New York University College of Dentistry in 2005, where she received first-rate training in all aspects of general dentistry.

Today, a significant part of her practice involves facial aesthetics procedures such as BOTOX®, JUVÉDERM®, and VOLUMA™. Dr. Kathein believes that the same skills that define an excellent dentist -- attention to detail, knowledge of anatomy and function, and a gentle hand along with an aesthetic eye, are paramount for a good injector. She feels that becoming an effective provider of facial aesthetic treatments has also been beneficial towards developing as a dentist. Using precise and analytic methods and utilizing her knowledge of facial anatomy, symmetry and proportion, she has helped her patients look younger and more rejuvenated without surgery. She follows a conservative approach that has been widely appreciated by her patients. She strongly believes that facial aesthetic procedures should look as natural as possible.

"My team and I combine advanced dentistry with a gentle, friendly style that will make you and your family more comfortable than you ever thought possible. Early in my career I decided to focus on treating my patients like family and friends.I take time to listen to all my patient's concerns and expectations and set aside a full hour for the initial visit. When I meet you I want to make sure I understand what your needs and desires are and answer any and all questions you have about your Dental Health and wellness. We do a very comprehensive exam including an oral cancer screening as well as a intraoral video look at all of your teeth using a state of the art intraoral camera. I personally go over your digital xrays with you to make sure you understand the condition of each tooth. Most importantly we get a chance to talk and get to know one another." -- Dr. Jack Behn
