Dr. Katy Correa has been practicing dentistry for nearly 20 years, and she loves helping patients get out of pain and achieve new smiles that boost their confidence. She comes from a family of doctors, and she’s proud to carry on the tradition here at Grand Dental.
“My two older sisters are doctors (a cardiologist and dermatologist), and when it was time for me to decide what to study, I remember them being so passionate about their careers. So, I started to look for an option that would give me the same kind of satisfaction in the healthcare area. As a dentist, providing care to my patients in need of my services gives me the satisfaction I was looking for every single day.” - Dr. Katy Correa
Dr. Katy earned her Master in Comprehensive Dentistry at Benemerita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla and practiced dentistry for 7 years in Mexico. After moving to the United States with her husband, Luis, she competed the Advanced Standing Program for Foreign Trained Doctors at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Finishing at the top of her class, she was inducted into the prestigious National Dental Honor Society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon. She stays on top of the latest techniques and technology in dentistry thanks to her memberships in the American Dental Association, Illinois State Dental Society, and Academy of General Dentistry.
At home, Dr. Katy mostly likes to relax with her husband and their two cats. An animal lover, she supports both local and international animal rescue organizations. She plays volleyball in an adult league, and you’ll often find her reading a good book on the weekends.
