TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A Missouri dentist has been named director of the Bureau of Oral Health in the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.

Agency Secretary Robert Moser announced the appointment of Dr. Cathy Taylor-Osborne this week. Taylor-Osborne is dental director of Cabot Westside Medical and Dental Center in Kansas City, Mo.

She succeeds Dr. Kathy Weno, who left the Kansas position last fall to become director of the Division of Oral Health for the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Taylor-Osborne holds a doctorate in dental surgery from the University of Missouri-Kansas City and a master's degree in bioethics and health policy from Loyola University. She practiced dental hygiene for 15 years before pursuing her dentistry degree.
