She practiced in the Metro Detroit area origionally as a trauma and general surgeon from 2013-2015. She was recruited to Cape Cod and practiced at Cape Cod Hosptial from 2015 until 2020. There she was the medical director of the High Risk Breast program and Women's Health at Cape Cod Hospital. She was first introduced to the world of aesthetics when her patients with breast cancer kept asking her if she provided "nips and tucks, and lifts and such". She had to keep saying no, but since they were so entrusting of her with their lives and seeking-out her aesthetic opinion. They inspired Dr. Kate to pursue extra training in minimally invasive or non-invasive aesthetic services.  Not soon after realizing the demand, she opened a small-scale medical spa in Hyannis in April 2019, and then relocated to Falmouth to make a full-service medical spa in October of 2019. That was the beginning of Cape Cod Aesthetics and MediSpa, now named Cape Cod Surgical Arts and MediSpa!

She was trained by the best cosmetic and plastic surgeons in the country. Her interest is body contouring, breast surgery and minimally-invasive face and neck procedures.


After facing illness herself, Dr. Dalton decided it was time for a lifestyle change to allow herself to have a healthy work-life balance and dove right into her aesthetics practice. She dedicates all of her time with the MediSpa.  After Covid, she also found that there was a change in the current medical landscape resulting limited access to care and lack of health-advocacy. She has since has also added Dalton Medical Group within the MediSpa to fill the gaps and provide top-notch general surgery service, access and advocacy with a personal touch.
