Meet Dr. Kaitlyn
Dr. Kaitlyn Purcell, DDS is the heart and soul of Sarasota Pediatric Dentistry. Her desire to bring pain-free, healthy smiles to every boy and girl she meets motivated her to start her own office here in Sarasota. Dr. Kaitlyn has been a practicing dentist for over 10 years. She has previously practiced as a general dentist and now she is a pediatric specialist and board certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
Dr. Kaitlyn immigrated from Vietnam and went to high school in Garden Grove, California. She attended California State University at Fullerton, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry. She later was accepted to her first choice dental school at the University of Southern California, where she obtained her doctorate in Dental Surgery. After deciding to focus all her effort on children's health, she applied and was selected for a position in the pediatric dental clinical residency program at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami. Now, Dr. Kaitlyn strives to bring the highest quality dental care to all children, from a baby’s first tooth eruption through their late teens, for a lifelong beautiful smile.
In her free time, Dr. Kaitlyn enjoys cooking and gardening. As a wife and mother of three, she enjoys exploring the outdoors with her family. Dr. Kaitlyn loves the tropical landscape and amazing ocean waters of Florida that remind her of her childhood. Say "Hi" if you see her out shopping or at the beach.
