Dr. Koch lives in Bethlehem with her husband and three sons.

“I enjoy having the opportunity to spend time with my patients and explain their different treatment options. I love being a general dentist since it allows me to take part in all of the different specialties that dentistry has to offer. I love nothing more than to treat patients who used to be afraid of going to the dentist but aren’t anymore because they feel comfortable seeing me.”
