Andrew Kutina, DDS

Dr. Kutina was born and raised in Great Bend, Kansas, where he graduated from Great Bend High School. He is a proud Kansas State University alumni. While attending K-State, he earned his bachelor's and master’s degrees in Kinesiology/Exercise Physiology and was a member of Delta Upsilon fraternity. He spent his summers working in his father’s dental practice in Great Bend where he found his passion for dentistry. It was during these summers working alongside his father that Dr. Kutina learned the importance of establishing long-term patient relationships based on trust, respect, and communication which would become a critical part of his practice philosophy today. He attended the University of Missouri Kansas City (UMKC) School of Dentistry where he earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree in May of 2018 with honors. Dr. Kutina, a fourth-generation dentist, enjoys multiple areas of dentistry and makes patient comfort, along with establishing long-term patient/provider relationships his main priority.

Outside the office, Dr. Kutina and his wife, Kara, enjoy spending as much time as possible with family and friends, lake weekends, attending K-State athletic events (especially football Saturdays! Go Cats!), and chasing around their hyper, yet loveable, German Shorthaired Pointer, Deuce. Dr. Kutina is a lover of all sports, especially golf and basketball. He is looking forward to many future years of serving the Manhattan community.
