Dr. Carla Kucirek
Dr. Kucirek joined Southwest Iowa Dental Associates after graduating from Creighton University School of Dentistry in 2014. Originally from Idaho, she graduated from Augustana College in Sioux Falls, South Dakota in 2005 with a Spanish Education degree. She then spent two years teaching English with the Peace Corps. She was awarded a loan repayment grant through the Fulfilling Iowa's Need for Dentists (FIND) project, which recruits dentists to practice in under-served areas of Iowa. She chose dentistry to help fulfill her passion for serving for others. She and her husband Adam love outdoor activities and supporting local artists and musicians. They can often be found pulling their two daughters in a trailer behind their bicycles on the Wabash Trace.
