Dr. Lydia Winters was born in Mississippi, but has now lived the majority of her life in Kentucky. She graduated from Oldham County High School in 2000, attended Kentucky Wesleyan College on a basketball scholarship where she graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, and earned her Doctorate of Dental Medicine (DMD) from University of Louisville School of Dentistry in 2008. Following dental school Dr. Winters joined the United States Public Health Service as a Commissioned Officer (0-3) and worked as a dentist for the Indian Health Service for 2 years on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona and 2 years with the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma. Dr. Winters greatly values her experience with IHS because it allowed her to serve many people of various ages and cultures. While working for IHS you see a lot of children so it opened her eyes to the importance of helping the pediatric population. Dr. Winters believes that treating children is the most important area of dentistry because if you can start early then it can not only make children more comfortable with seeing the dentist, but can also influence a lifetime of healthy smiles. Dr. Winters is an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, Kentucky Dental Association, Families for Effective Autism Treatment, and the Louisville Mothers of Twins Club.
Dr. Lydia and her husband, Kurtis, have 3 children. They love spending time with their little boy and twin girls and are so happy to be back in the area close to family. They enjoy the outdoors, hiking, playing on the farm, basketball, and enjoy attending their church.
