MEET THE DOCTORS

DR. KEVIN LILLY

Education: Dr. Lilly graduated from Sioux City North High School in 1985. He attended the University of Iowa for his undergraduate education. In 1988, he entered the University of Iowa College of Dentistry and graduated in 1992. Following graduation, he was accepted into an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency program at the University of Texas at San Antonio, where he gained advanced training in a wide range of treatments.

Professional Memberships and Awards: Dr. Lilly is a member of the American Dental Association, Iowa Dental Association, Sioux City Dental Society and Academy of General Dentistry. He formerly served as the president of the Northwest District of the Iowa Dental Association and on several councils for the Iowa Dental Association.

Dr. Kevin Lilly earned his Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry in 2000, only eight years after graduating from dental school. To apply for this award, a dentist must complete over 500 hours of certified continuing education. The second half of the process involved a rigorous examination with questions covering all aspects of dentistry, including the specialty areas. Less than one percent of all dentists earn this award, and most who do have been in practice for well over 15 years.

Community Service: Alongside the team at Lilly Family Dentistry, Dr. Lilly participates in the many community outreach programs that the practice takes part in. He has partnered with the Gospel Mission of Sioux City, the American Dental Association, the Iowa Mission of Mercy, as well as hosting the Dentistry from the Heart event, all to provide local residents and families with free dental care and education.

Dr. Lilly and his staff have become very involved in the community. They love to volunteer at the local Foodbank, work with Support Siouxland Soldiers, they have created teams to run/walk in local races, participate in local health fairs, and they have adopted the road that runs in front of the practice, and make sure it is cleaned up throughout the year. Dr. Lilly is also a great supporter of many local teams, and other community fundraising events. He truly enjoys giving back to the community in any way that he can!

Continuing Education: Dr. Lilly keeps up with the latest developments in dentistry through his commitment to continuing education. The state of Iowa requires dentists to attend 30 hours of continuing education every two years. Dr. Lilly regularly exceeds this requirement. 

Family: Dr. Kevin Lilly and Dr. Jane Lilly have been happily married since 1992. They have two sons, Carter born in 1995 and Jake born in 1996.

During the course of her undergraduate education, she received her certification as an EMT and served as a member of the Illinois Emergency Medical Services on campus. Dr. Lilly attended the University of Iowa College of Dentistry, where she earned her DDS degree in 1992. Following graduation, she was accepted into the Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency program at the University of Missouri, Kansas City. The purpose of the AEGD program is to achieve advanced training in more complex aspects of dental treatment in order to provide patients with excellent care.

During her dental training at the University of Iowa, she earned the Dean’s Award for Excellence four years in a row.

Community Service: In the past, Lilly Family Dentistry has provided the residents and workers of the Gospel Mission with needed dental care at no cost. The dental office participates in the annual Iowa Mission of Mercy, and started hosting a Dentistry from the Heart event, these are all events that provide free dental care for many people in our community.

Dr. Jane Lilly has volunteered for the National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM). She gave dental health presentations and donated toothbrushes, floss, and toothpaste to many children in the Sioux City public and private schools.

In 2003, the American Dental Association held its 1st annual “Give Kids a Smile!” Day. Lilly Family Dentistry participated in this event for several years, providing free dental treatment to children whose families are not able to afford or do not have access to dental care.
