The most rewarding aspect of dentistry is taking the patient that’s afraid and turning them into somebody that just loves going. We have, we see that all the time, they come in and because I feel like we take the time to nurture them and make them understand that, yes, I’m afraid of going to the dentist as well. We can make this a comfortable and pleasant experience for you, and they’re transformed. That’s part of the rewarding process, the other is taking somebody that never wanted to smile, and then all of a sudden they’re out there and they can’t stop smiling. One other reward that I think that we all have, are those patients that come in and we’re able to take them and make them understand you have more something more than just a dental problem, we need to send you to your physician. We’ve done that on, on several occasion that, and they come back and say, you saved my life because nobody ever bothered to check this, and you’re the ones that, that took the time to take our blood pressure, took the time to maybe screen for sleep apnea, things like that, and that’s rewarding as well.

After attending West Virginia University, Dr. Takacs graduated with high honors from the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry in 1983. After graduation, she worked as an associate in a Lexington practice until opening her own practice in 1984. Since then, she has also taught at the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry and coached dentists through a dental management company.

First of all, I grew up in Indiana, and then we moved to West Virginia. I went to WVU in 1976. Got accepted to dental school at UK, University of Kentucky, in ’79 during my junior year, so I skipped my senior year of undergrad to go to dental school. That started the whole process of me always having to be a little bit ahead of the game because they thought I was too young to start dental school being just three years out of college. I was always pushed to do the best I could, and that’s always been kind of the background that I’ve had with my parents. They’ve always expected my brothers and I to exceed beyond what we know we can do.

I graduated from UK in 1983. I set up as an associate with a doctor in town and then decided I did not want to work that way, so I went out on my own in 1984. From that point on, it’s been continuing education is very important to me. We started out with one operatory. In 1984, I had two employees, so I kind of did everything. I didn’t get a hygienist for about four years. I think because of that I developed a good relationship with my patients and took a lot of continuing education on how to manage a practice because we don’t learn that in dental school. I valued continuing education for my associates and for my employees, so we would go take various continuing education courses around the country just learning how to treat a patient the right way.

Dr. Takacs is a member of the Academy of GP Orthodontics, the Academy of Laser Dentistry, the Academy of Computerized Dentistry, the Bluegrass Dental Society, the Kentucky Dental Association, the American Dental Association, and the Dental Organization of Conscious Sedation.

She is also the accomplished co-author of two Amazon best-selling books, Principles for Success Vol. 2 and A Cup of Coffee With My Dentist.

Dr. Takacs and her husband, Norm, have two wonderful children, Ryan and Kyle. As a family they enjoy outdoor activities and traveling. Dr. Takacs is an avid reader and lover of dogs.
