Dr. Reece was born and raised in Nebraska, grew up on a farm near Kearney, and graduated from Pleasanton High School. She completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science in 2003. Dr. Reece then completed her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry in 2007. After graduating from dental school in 2007, she moved to Anchorage, Alaska, and worked there as a general dentist for 10 years.

In 2018, Dr. Reece’s ties to Nebraska brought her back to Kearney. She opened Advanced Dentistry of Kearney in the dental office formerly owned by Dr. Douglas Holmes (retired).

In Dr. Reece’s practice, she loves building meaningful, long-lasting relationships with her patients. She immensely appreciates that she gets to see her patients regularly, watch them grow, educate them on how to improve their dental health, and make a difference in their lives. Dr. Reece is delighted to combine her knowledge of biology, her attention to detail, her artistic abilities, and her passion for helping people to create healthy and beautiful smiles.

When Dr. Reece is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Jonathan, and their four energetic and adorable children, Jack, Mae, Tilly, and Dottie. She enjoys walking, gardening, and helping on the family farm. As a family, they enjoy bike rides on the trails around Kearney, being outdoors, traveling, and exploring new places.

I have historically dreaded the discomfort, pain, and numbness associated with dental procedures. Dr. Reece recently recommended a dental laser for my procedure that required no numbing or sedation. I was initially skeptical but decided to trust her. Dr. Reece was able to complete my filling with little to no pain or discomfort. I walked out of the appointment in record time with no numbness, drooling, or slurred speech and was able to immediately return to my legal practice and complete my day. It has been my experience that Advanced Dentistry of Kearney is very accommodating in their scheduling and happy to remind me of my upcoming appointments. Dr. Reece and her staff are always kind and professional and I would highly recommend their services.

Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery FAQs

Minimally invasive surgery allows our physicians to use specific surgical techniques that limit the size and number of incisions that need to be made during a surgical procedure. As a result, they can perform surgery without cutting into a lot of skin and muscle, as is done with open gynecologic surgery. Less trauma to the muscles results in less pain, less blood loss, and quicker recovery times.

Minimally invasive surgical approaches can be faster, safer, and require less recovery time. Other potential benefits include

  • Better cosmetic results from smaller skin incisions
  • Less blood loss from surgery.
  • Reduced risk of muscle damage due to reduced trauma to the muscles and soft tissues.
  • Reduced risk of infection and postoperative pain.
  • Faster recovery from surgery and less rehabilitation required.
  • Diminished reliance on pain medications after surgery.

Depending on the baseline health of the patient, many minimally invasive gynecologic surgeries can be done on an outpatient basis.

Typically, patients who undergo minimally invasive gynecologic surgery can return to normal activities within a few weeks. Oftentimes, patients can begin their physical therapy and recovery program sooner than patients who have had open gynecologic surgery, because their pain is less severe. Patients who have conventional (open) gynecologic surgery, typically, have a 6 week recovery period.
