Dr. Kate Gilson

Hi! I’m Dr. Kate Gilson. I graduated from Marquette School of Dentistry in 1999. After graduation, I completed a General Practice Residency at Mountainside Hosptial in Montclair, NJ. Since the completion of my residency, I have been in private practice in Waukesha, Wisconsin since 2003. I feel it's extremely important to stay current with the changes in the world of dentisty, which is why I attend several continuing education courses each year focusing on both general and cosmetic dentistry. I have also completed two mini-residencies in the area of dental implants. I am a member of the Wisconsin Dental Association and the Waukesha County Dental Society, and was resently chosen as one of the "Top Milwaukee-area Dentists for 2015". The part of family dentstry that I enjoy most is having the opportunity to see patients of all ages, from toddler to adult. I enjoy getting to know each and every one of my patients, and consider myself very fortunate that they chose me to be their dentist.

I am originally from Wisconsin and currently reside in Waukesha with my husband, Andy, my daughter, Molly, and twin boys, Mick and Finn. When I am not working or chauffeuring my kids to their various lessons, I enjoy reading, yoga, painting, and hanging out with my family.

I have taken numerous continuing education courses, including dental implant mini-residencies as well as courses in cosmetic and general dentistry.

I believe in service to my profession and community. I currently treat patients throught the Wisconsin Dental Association (WDA) Foundation's Mission of Mercy (MOM) program. Since 2009, the MOM program has provided over $7.1 million in charitable dental care to over 13,000 children and adults residents in Wisconsin. At present I am chair of the American Dental Association's MOM organizational team. I am a past president of the Waukesha County Dental Society and the Wisconsin Dental Association. I have served on several committees and councils of the American Dental Association and have been recognized for my service to dentistry through the ADA’s Golden Apple Award and three Pyramid of Pride awards from the Wisconsin Dental Association. I am a board member for the Waukesha Kiwanis Club and the Waukesha Education Foundation.

I reside in Waukesha with my wife and two daughters. My interests outside of dentistry include spending time with my family, traveling, and model railroading. Our patients tell us they appreciate our professionalism. They especially appreciate the time we spend discussing their dental health.
