She is certified by the American Academy of Facial Esthetics as a Botox provider for TMJD, gummy smile and esthetic needs. She has been a dentist at Kingdom Family Dentistry for over 20 years. Her favorite part about Kingdom Family Dentistry is starting the morning praying with staff and for patients.

Dr. Yoxthimer’s passion for community service led her to start a volunteer group named Strong Women Helping Others. Her organization of over 100 volunteers sponsors charity events, such as The Studious Studs Fashion Show raising money for a homeless shelter for women and children. She also created Kicking Out Poverty, a kickball tournament that benefits providing meals for the homeless living underneath bridges in Cincinnati.

Her desire to give back led her to be a part of the “No Vet Left Behind Program” where she provides free dental work to veterans. Dr. Yoxthimer also participates in Dental Community Day, providing free dental care to those in need. This summer she and her fourteen-year-old went on a dental missions trip to Nigeria. The dental team was just her and her son. They provided extractions and cleanings to the children at three different orphanages. Dr. Yoxthimer believes that being a dentist is great, but the most fulfilling part is being able to help those in need with dentistry.
