Meet Dr. Kelsey Cottingim

As a dentist, I find fulfillment in the opportunity to help my patients every day, working hard to improve each person’s quality of life. My goal is for every patient to have a positive experience, advance their understanding of the importance of oral health, and give them confidence through the smile they deserve!

It is a pleasure to work with a talented and dedicated team, in a practice that makes patient comfort, health, and wellbeing a top priority. We work seamlessly to provide efficient, optimal dental care in a welcoming and friendly environment. We treat our patients like family and work to earn their trust through high-quality, individualized dentistry and healthy, beautiful results.

Education and Continuing Education

I grew up in Camden, Ohio, and knew I wanted to be a dentist after many dental-related accidents while growing up. Experiencing, first-hand, the transformations that a dentist can make in a person’s confidence and smile inspired me to help others as I had been helped!

I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry with a minor in Molecular Biology at Miami University in 2017. My Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) was awarded by Indiana University School of Dentistry in 2021.

Dental school gave me a solid foundational understanding of oral health, diagnostics, treatment planning, and different methodologies. Dentistry, though, is a constantly advancing field, and it is critical I stay current on the newest options, emerging trends, and research.

I actively participate in continuing education (CE), which allows me to broaden my knowledge and skillset, and stay up-to-date on the latest procedures and technologies. Through CE I am able to provide my patients with the highest level of comprehensive dental care.

I am a member of the:

  • Keely Dental Society
  • Ohio Dental Association
  • American Dental Association

Through these organizations I have access to numerous lectures, seminars, online courses, meetings, and journals and other publications. I take advantage of every opportunity to increase my knowledge and abilities in order to best serve my patients: they deserve nothing less!

Outside the Office

I live in Liberty Township with my fiancé — we will be married in June 2021 — and our fur baby, Watson, a young Cockapoo. We love traveling and spending time outside.

When not working, I can often be found training for a marathon, spoiling Watson, or enjoying time with my family, especially my niece!
