Dr. Struby met her husband, Brian, at Creighton University’s dental school, where they shared an experience of a lifetime on a volunteer dental mission trip. They were granted the opportunity to provide dentistry to underserved people living in remote villages of the Dominican Republic. She left the DR with a little bit of Spanish and an abundance of Dominican smiles.

Family is wildly important to Dr. Struby. When she is not practicing orthodontics, you can find her spending time with her incredible husband and their five amazing children. Some of her favorite, but simple, pleasures in life are enjoying a cup of coffee, sharing meals outdoors, and going for long walks.
