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.

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.

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!
