Meet Our Dentist
and Staff Members
We would love to have you meet Dr. Robin Khan and our skilled staff. They have many years of experience and offer unique cosmetic dental services to meet all your dental needs.
DDSDr. Robin Khan
A background in nursing prior to her dental education has evolved into a unique and passionate approach to cosmetic dentistry. She has a desire to enhance her patients’ smiles, general health, as well as their dental concerns. Having spent her professional career learning from the top mentors in the country in the discipline of cosmetic dentistry (including Invisalign, veneers, conservative smile enhancement and more), she feels she is at the peak of her career in general and cosmetic dentistry. From her years of experience and pursuit of excellence, a belief and understanding of collaborative care has emerged. She feels that a firm understanding, and appreciation of dental specialists is paramount in providing the highest standard of care.
Dr. Khan is one of the pioneers in the understanding and treatment of airway dentistry, sleep-apnea, and chronic cranial-facial pain. She has dedicated her educational pursuits, and her collaborative efforts with medical and dental professionals both locally and nationally, to the discipline of craniofacial pain, TMJ disorders, sleep apnea treatment and facial development. These areas of focus are deeply intertwined with an individual’s general health and quality of life. Dr. Khan can often be heard explaining to the patient that tooth problems are often secondary to something else.
Dr. Khan is an Associate Professor at Creighton University School of Dentistry. She is a Fellow of the American Academy of Cranio-facial Pain and a Fellow of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine. Outside of raising some children that she is deeply proud of, she considers the success she has had in building relationships with her patients and successfully addressing their dental concerns to be her life’s reward. Dr. Khan believes that all people desire and deserve the best health and dental care available. Her passion for cosmetic dentistry comes from her love of people and her desire to be of service.
DDSDr. Kathleen Higgins
Dr. Higgins was raised in Lincoln, NE.
She attended UNL where she majored in Biology.
It was during college that she discovered the profession of dentistry and all the exciting opportunities it offered. She attended the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry and graduated with her DDS. She then went on to attend the Oklahoma College of Dentistry’s AEGD program. She has since been practicing in the Omaha area for several years.
Dr. Higgins loves to spend time outdoors with family and friends when she’s not in the clinic. She will never pass up an opportunity for good meal at a new restaurant, and enjoys spending time with her French bulldog, Russell.
Dr. Higgins is a member of the American Dental Association, a Spear Study Club, and Implant Study Club.
Alisia is the newest member to our team. She has over 16 years of dental experience. More recently working as a dental hygienist for the past 5 years. Alisia graduated from the Dental Hygiene program at IWCC in 2014. Outside of loving the work that she does at Dentistry for Health, she loves and cherishes the time that she spends with her husband, children, and friends.
Alisia loves teeth so much that she owns and operates a business called 2TH LADI JEWELZ AND GEMZ LLC specializing in placing swarovski crystals and gold tooth gems. She is currently taking appointments Thursday-Sunday at our beloved Dentistry for Health.

Ann is one of our immensely talented dental hygienists with 30+ years of experience. Ann was born and grew up in the town of Kinsman, Ohio as the youngest of many siblings. Ann grew up as a small-town girl who loved her sweet, white poodle named Taffy. Wanting to get out of her small town, Ann went to school at Ohio State University, where she received a bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene.
During college, she met her husband Mark in a small Pennsylvania mining town where both of their families had immigrated to from similar areas in eastern Europe. After marriage, Ann and Mark moved around the country, keeping up with Mark’s naval career. Now they have two wonderful daughters, Rebecca, a teacher in San Francisco and Rachel, a nurse in Omaha. Ann spends her leisure time with her close friends, engaging in a book club, riding bikes across states, (she has done 100-mile days more than once!) doing as much yoga as she can as well as tending to her garden.
What to say about Laura? The rock and cement of our cosmetic dental practice. Laura has been assisting and multi-tasking with Dr. Khan since 2003. She has lived most of her life in Omaha and has been married to her husband, John, for 15 years. She has 2 beautiful boys to keep her busy and enjoys biking, cooking, and caring for her family. Laura is super smart and is of the age where she navigates technology with ease. Her work ethic is unparalleled. Honestly, without her, life would be more difficult for us all!
Jacque is our beloved and amazing dental assistant. She is Dr. Khan’s left hand, and her value is immeasurable. A native of Council Bluffs, she attended IWCC for dental assisting after graduation from Lewis Central. She has been with Dr. Khan for over 20 years and is always kind and pleasant with our patients. In 2013, she met the love of her life and was married in the fall of 2019. In her off time, she volunteers with her church and spends time in nature with her dog, Trina. She and her husband enjoy watching birds and fishing. We all love ourselves some Jacque!
Office Manager Kyria
Kyria has been managing Dentistry for Health for a couple of years now but has worked in the dental field for nearly a decade. She was previously a Traveling Trainer for an international dental software company based out of Lincoln, NE. She has helped dental offices across the country and beyond: from New Jersey to California to Canada to Haiti; she is now happy to stay in Omaha for a change and bring that experience to our office.
When she’s not here answering billing questions and handling insurance claims, Kyria loves to enjoy the great outdoors with her family, as well as the great indoors (their board game collection is impressive). Her other hobbies include curling up with a good book and obsessively learning new languages!
Originally from small town Iowa, Tyrel moved to the Omaha area after high school to attend college at IWCC. There, he met his wife Amanda, and they later had a son and a daughter. They love to travel and spend time with them in the great outdoors.
Tyrel is a people person, which you will note during a visit to our clinic and a conversation at our front desk. During his free time, you can find Tyrel playing with his band in one of many Omaha music venues or riding his motorcycle around the city. Bottom line on Tyrel is you will love him as much as we do.
