Katie Divine, DDS, MS

Diplomate, American Board of Endodontics

Dr. Katherine “Katie” Divine completed her dental school education at the University of Minnesota in 2013. She continued on to an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency in Meridian, Idaho, and then to general dental practice in the suburbs of Minneapolis for two years. She returned to the University of Minnesota for her Endodontics residency and Master’s degree. While in residency, Dr. Divine served as Chief Resident and as a member of the Foundation for Endodontics Resident Expert Advisory Council (REACH) committee. As a REACH member, she traveled to Jamaica for the International Outreach Program to save teeth otherwise doomed for extraction in the underserved community of Treasure Beach.

Following completion of her endodontics specialty program in 2018, Dr. Divine moved back to Idaho to work full-time in private practice for four years and taught one day a month at her former AEGD residency. She is a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics and her research has been published in the Journal of Endodontics. In 2019, Dr. Divine was selected for participation in the AAE Leadership Development Program. Since then, she has been a part of the AAE Membership Services committee, served on the 2021 District VI Caucus Nominating Committee, and was appointed to the Special Committee on the Board Transformation Initiative.  Dr. Divine is currently serving as the New Practitioner Trustee for the Foundation for Endodontics and a contributing chapter author for an upcoming revision of an endodontics textbook.

Dr. Divine is excited to return to Minnesota yet again to join Zumbro Valley Endodontics and her friends, Dr. Majerus & Regan Anderson. She spends time outside of endodontics with her husband, a general dentist, her young daughter, and her rescued greyhound dog.
