Mary Kathryn van Didden:

Mary Kathryn has been with Tri-State Orthodontics since 2016 and she has been in the orthodontic field since 1983.  She also obtained her CMA in 2013.  Mary Kathryn enjoys orthodontics as she can witness first-hand the dramatic life-changing smiles that affect so many, both adults and children alike.  In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, being very involved with her three grandchildren Scarlett, Anthony and Lucas.  Mary Kathryn also enjoys crafting and reading and “lots of chocolate!”
