Dr. Kate Putney, DDS

Associate Dentist

Dr. Kate Putney grew up in Wilson, NC and received her Bachelor of Science in Biology with a Chemistry minor from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  Following her undergraduate education, she continued at UNC-Chapel Hill receiving her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.  Dentistry has always been a part of Kate's life.  Her father, Dr. Miller Gibbons, has been practicing orthodontics in Wilson for over 33 years and Kate considers him her greatest mentor.  

Dr. Kate enjoys working with children of all ages and those adults who are big kids at heart!  While in dental school, Dr. Kate was certified in the Baby Oral Health Program (bOHP) acquiring further training to see children starting at age 1.  For her adult patients, she particularly enjoys cosmetic procedures, also prioritizes her patient's oral health above all.  She is a member of the American Dental Association, the North Carolina Dental Society, and the North Carolina 5th District Dental Society.  Dr. Kate understands dentistry is an evolving field and, therefore, stays up to date through study clubs and continuing education each year. 

When not in the office, Dr. Kate spends time with her husband, Witt, and their two rescue dogs, Oliver and Penny. During the sports season, she loves cheering on the Tar Heels with her family and friends! Traveling, especially to the NC coast, and running are a few of her favorite activities during her down time. Dr. Kate feels beyond blessed to practice dentistry and hopes to make a positive impact on her patients and community. We love Dr. Putney, and if you haven’t met her, we know you will love her too!
