Dr. Kim Oberlander DMD, MPH, is the new Dental Director with Primary Health Solutions, where she will oversee clinical operations in the dental centers as well as providing care to patients.  With over 10 years of public health and dental director experience, she believes that everyone has the right to access dental care.  Dr. Oberlander has played an integral role in opening dental centers, including several school-based centers, to provide dental services to children who otherwise would be unable to access dental services.

 

Dr. Oberlander holds undergraduate degrees in dental hygiene from the University of Cincinnati and The Ohio State University.  Dr. Oberlander’s passion for public health dentistry grew, after working as a dental hygienist in a downtown Cincinnati clinic that served the homeless population.  She completed dental school at the Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health, where she also earned a Master’s in Public Health.  Since graduating from dental school, she has worked to advance access to dental care for those that need it most. 

 

Dr. Oberlander served eight years in the United States Army, providing dental exams and treatment to soldiers who were preparing for deployment overseas. 

 

When Dr. Oberlander isn’t at work, she loves spending time with her family, cooking and being outdoors.  She is married, and her two children keep her busy with all their activities.
