Dr. Kathryn (Katie) Egan, a Cleveland, TN native, graduated with a degree in Dentistry from the University of Tennessee, Memphis, in 2009. From there, she went on to complete a 1-year general practice residency at Denver Health Hospital in Denver, Colorado. Dr. Egan has always been drawn to serve others; this desire took her to the Arctic Circle in Barrow, Alaska working for Indian Health Services and treating Alaskan natives across Northern Alaska. After her Alaska adventure, she returned to her home state of Tennessee to once again work with the under served. She assisted in starting the Rutherford County office of the Interfaith Dental Clinic-a clinic created to serve low income, and uninsured working class of Middle Tennessee. Her heart has always been in Chattanooga and in June of 2013 she was offered a position to return home and work with the Chattanooga VA dental clinic. After five years of dedicated service to others, Dr. Egan has decided to enter private practice and take her talents to Hixson, TN, where she is very excited to become a valued addition to the community.
Dr. Egan is a member of the American Dental Society, Academy of General Dentistry, Tennessee Dental Association, Chattanooga Area Dental Society, DOCS education program for dental oral sedation and Spear Study Club. She is also a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry; an honor that less than 6% of practicing dentists have achieved. In her spare time, Dr. Egan enjoys golfing, reading and spending time with her husband-Matt and dog-Sadie.
