Dr. Sadie Hlavenka is a proud graduate and valedictorian of Ardmore High School. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Southwestern College in Winfield, Kansas graduating summa cum laude. She also received the Order of the Mound award for graduating in the top 10% of her class. While earning her degree, she was a 4-year varsity member of the tennis team and was able to compete in doubles matches with her twin sister Dr. Savannah Caro in multiple conference tournaments. Sadie is the daughter of Doug and Paula Pfau, who along with her grandparents, Herb and Pat Upchurch and Bob and Joy Pfau, are ecstatic to welcome her back to Ardmore.
Dentistry jumped to the top of Dr. Hlavenka’s list of future careers after an accident damaged two of her permanent teeth in 2nd grade. She chose to attend the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry because of their focus in digital dentistry and graduated with her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. During her time in Lexington, she was able to gain invaluable experience in cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Hlavenka is a current member of the American Association of Women Dentists, American Dental Association, and future member of Oklahoma Dental Association.
Dr. Hlavenka met her husband Devin at Southwestern, and they share two dogs, Biscuit and Sophie that, like their humans, love to travel and spend time outside. In her spare time, she and Devin love competing in tennis, golf, and training for half marathons. Most of all, she enjoys spending quality time with her family and her friends, and she is excited to be able to serve her hometown community.
