Lydia Dennis, DO
About the provider
Dr. Lydia was born and raised in the great state of Mississippi. I attended Mississippi State University and graduated Cum Laude with a B.S. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in 1997. I went on to do a year of DNA research at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. In 1998, I moved to Kansas City, MO to attend The University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine (now KCUMB). I met my husband there as a 2nd year medical student. We were married my 4th year of medical school while doing clinical rotations in Oklahoma City through St. Anthony Hospital. Greg and I did our residency training at Via Christi Family Medicine in Wichita, KS. After graduating, I did a brief stent working full-time ER with Emergency Services of Kansas in Newton. Our son was born during Greg’s last year of residency and I decided to stay home and work part time. Our initial employer was SSM in Mustang. Two years later, we moved to Mercy Yukon Clinic. My entire career I’ve worked as a full-time mother and part-time physician. It’s a family-work balance that works great for my very full life of community service and hands-on parenting.
I have volunteered as a physician, medical director and board member at The Eden Clinic in Norman (2008-2012). Most recently, I serve as a women’s Sunday School teacher at Snow Hill Baptist Church (2017-present), a Big Brothers Big Sister’s mentor (2017-present), and a 4-H parent volunteer leading a STEM club for Tuttle 4-H Club (2017-present). Most recently, I helped start Mustang’s Keto Support Group.
