Our Chagrin Falls Dentist Started as a Hygienist
Dr. Kim Fury has been involved in dentistry since 1969. After 17 years as a practicing hygienist, Dr. Fury returned to school and earned her Bachelor of Science and Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Case Western Reserve University and the university’s School of Dental Medicine, respectively.
At her graduation from dental school – achieved through commuting from home and continuing in the roles of wife, mother, and aerobics instructor – Dr. Fury received the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Academic Honorary recognition for her high achievements in academics and character.
Continuing education is an enduring focus in Dr. Fury’s professional life. Her studies include aesthetic and restorative anterior/posterior dentistry, TMJ dysfunction, endodontics, periodontal/chemo therapeutics, nutrition, exercise, and non-amalgam restorations.
Dr. Fury is proud of her graduation from studies at the Dawson Academy in St. Petersburg, Florida in anterior esthetics, occlusion, problem solving, and restorative applications; the Pride Institute of practice management in Chicago; and her leadership in studies at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies in esthetics, occlusal, reconstructive, and neuromuscular dentistry.
She is a founding member of North East Ohio Neuromuscular Study Consortium (NEONs), a member and participant in the Academy of Computerized Dentistry of North America (ACDNA); has a certificate of clinical proficiency in diode laser usage through the Academy of Laser Dentistry; and is associated with APEX – a neuromuscular and esthetic dental teaching institute.
Dr. Fury has taken both basic and advanced courses for facial injections and dermal fillers, a requisite for becoming a member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics.
Dr. Fury believes that her patients like her because she listens intently to their needs and is happy to answer any questions they have about their dental care.
