Meet Our Doctor

Dr. Michelle Kucera ("Dr. K")

Dr. Michelle Kucera (known to all as Dr. K) has always loved children. She became intrigued with dentistry while working for a local dentist and orthodontist in high school and loved interacting with the variety of people she met each day. She became a DDS at Case Western Reserve University, discovering that one of the most important components of successful dentistry is building patient relationships and trust. She places high value on listening to and honoring each individual patient’s story, developing bonds that she hopes will last many years.

In 2012, Dr. K purchased the practice from Dr. Terry Horlick (who retired in 2015), and branded it as Caring Tree Children's Dentistry. Caring Tree is now expanding to include a second office in Lincoln later in 2018. Dr. K nurtures a supportive, joyful, and cohesive team in her practice, knowing this ensures the most positive dental experiences for our young patients and their families.

"Building patient relationships and trust are very important at Caring Tree. It is important to listen to and honor every family's story."
- Dr. Michelle Kucera
