Dr. Kirby Goodwine


Dr. Kirby was born in Denver, Colorado and grew up in Louisvile, Kentucky. He graduated with honors from The University of Kentucky with a B.S. in Biology. While earning his degree, Dr. Kirby worked full time in a pediatric dental office where he first developed his passion for dentistry and working with children. After finishing his undergraduate studies Dr. Kirby continued his education at The University of Louisville School of Dentistry, where he earned his Doctorate of Dental Medicine (DMD). Following his 4 years of dental school, Dr. Kirby matched in his hometown and stayed at The University of Louisville/Norton Children’s Hospital. There he completed an additional two-year post-graduate residency specializing in pediatric dentistry and received a Certificate in Pediatric Dentistry as well as a Master’s Degree in Oral Science.

Dr. Kirby is committed to providing specialized and comprehensive oral care for infants, children, and adolescents in a friendly, safe, and state-of-the-art environment with a focus on prevention and education for the children and families. He is happy to provide a positive experience and dental home to the children of Naperville and surrounding areas.

Outside of dentistry, Dr. Kirby enjoys spending time on the lake and stays very busy with outdoor activities. On any given afternoon you will likely find Dr. Kirby and his large, very friendly chocolate lab named Jaxon at the dog beach!

A few words from Dr. Kirby:

“The care I received as a child from my pediatric dentist helped shape my future; giving me the tools to apply healthy oral hygiene habits at an early age and contributed to the self-confidence that comes with a healthy smile. Receiving the treatment that I did as a kid had a transformative effect on my life and afforded me opportunities I wouldn’t have had otherwise. My goal as a pediatric dentist is to pass that gift onward to others. I stand committed to seeing the positive change in children’s view of going to the dentist and my favorite part of the job is seeing an anxious patient become more confident, relaxed, and excited for the next visit.”
