Dr. Cartwright

Toothbrush in hand, Dr. Kate Cartwright is chasing cavities away from patients of all ages, and she wants to be your family dentist.

Dr. Cartwright is a native of the Cleveland Suburbs and a completely Ohio-trained General Dentist. As an undergraduate student at The Ohio State University, she studied Early Childhood Development and spent years working with young children in preschools and in day-care settings. Dr. Cartwright then earned her dental degree (Doctor of Dental Medicine) from Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine. She rounded-out her training in a General Practice Residency at the Louis Stokes VA Medical Center in downtown Cleveland. Dr. Cartwright is especially grateful for her hospital experience at the Medical Center, which she feels solidified her ability to treat patients of all ages. “My VA Residency taught me about treating complex cases in adults over 65 or with compromised health,” states Dr. Cartwright, “Plus, the patients were so much fun!”  

The unique services Dr. Cartwright offers as a General Dentist reflect her versatility, including:

  • adult orthodontics using the Six Month Smiles™ and Invisalign™ systems,   
  • mini dental implants for the retention of dentures and partials, and
  • sedation dentistry in partnership with a local anesthesiologist and surgical center.

When she’s not spending quality time with your teeth, Dr. Cartwright is having fun with her husband and young children. Whether it’s riding bikes, hiking in the Metroparks, or playing on the golf course, you can expect to find the Cartwright family outside somewhere.
