Dear Sala Family Dentistry Team Members,

I would like to introduce myself to you and your practice. My name is K.C. Gilbert, and I completed my third and final year of my orthodontics residency at the University of Florida in Gainesville. I am incredibly excited and read to join the Sala Family Dentistry team in my hometown and become intimately involved in a community that my wife and I can call home. Having grown up in Reno I have a tremendous appreciation for what a jewel of a city it really is, and my wife and I are beyond happy to return to my home state to practice near family and friends.

As a brief introduction, below are a few highlights of my educational background:

  • Bishop Manogue, Reno NV (2005)
  • University of  Nevada, Reno, B.S. in Biochemistry—GO  PACK! (2010)
  • Oregon Health and Science College of  Dentistry, Student Body President (2015)
  • University of Florida, Orthodontics Residency, Chief Resident

This year has marked several new beginnings for my wife, Erika and me. We recently were married in the beauty of Lake Tahoe in March before completing our respective programs at the University of Florida. Erika graduated from the College of Veterinary Medicine with her doctorate (DVM) as I completed my orthodontic training. We are both thrilled to be entering into careers that can become meaningful platforms for community involvement and allow us to have a positive impact on the people and animals that enrich our everyday lives.

My wife and I are outdoor enthusiast and on the weekends you will often find us spending time outdoors hiking, running, rock climbing, or enjoying time next to a body of water. As goes with the territory of being married to a veterinarian we love and spoil our three dogs and cat, all of which regularly join us in our outdoor adventures (yes, even the cat!).

I’m excited to meet every member of the Sala Family Dentistry team and I thank you ahead of time for welcoming me into the practice. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or would just like to say hi and get to know me!


K.C.  Gilbert,  D.M.D.,  M.S.
