Dr. Stacey Kutsch was born and raised in a small community in South Dakota. Dr. Stacey graduated first in her class from the University of Washington (UW) School of Dentistry in 2001. She completed a General Practice Residency at the UW Medical Center and practiced as a general dentist in Phoenix, Arizona before pursuing post-doctoral training at The Ohio State University/Columbus Children’s Hospital, where she was Chief Pediatric Dental Resident. In 2006, Dr. Stacey received her Master’s degree and a national award for her research on the molecular make-up of the bacteria that causes cavities in infants and toddlers.
Dr. Stacey is a strong advocate for early dental prevention in young children and believes that all children deserve quality treatment in a nurturing environment. After being part of a large group practice in the Tri-Cities, Washington (Richland, Pasco, Kennewick area) for 8 years, Dr. and her husband decided to return to a smaller community with a less hectic lifestyle, happily choosing Walla Walla to be their new home. Walla Walla Pediatric Dentistry is the culmination of her efforts to achieve the highest standard of care in the profession by providing an office based on prevention and parental participation in obtaining healthy smiles. Dr. Stacey is committed to giving each patient unique and personalized care. Her passion is prevention, and when treatment is necessary that it be the most esthetically pleasing and conservative as possible.
In addition to creating beautiful prince and princess smiles, Dr.’s all-time favorite activity is spending time with her wonderful family, husband Duane and daughter Caroline. Dr. Stacey and her family are excited to be a part of the Walla Walla community and look forward to meeting you and your family!
