“My favorite part of being a hygienist is getting to meet new patients everyday :)”.  

I attended The Dental Hygiene Program at Baker College in Port Huron and Graduated in 2010. I’ve worked at this office for 6 years prior to its transition to Serenity Family Dentistry. I enjoy treating patients and giving everyone an individualized experience to their personal oral care needs.  

I live in St. Clair Shores with my husband, daughter, and 3 dogs. What can I say, we have a soft spot for furry creatures. In my free time, which I no longer have since welcoming our beautiful daughter into the world in September 2017; I love spending time with my family and friends, cuddling with my dogs, listening to music, and camping. 



Kayla grew up in St. Clair Shores and has called many places home since. She attended Ferris State University where she graduated with her degree in Dental Hygiene in May 2014.   

She is certified in local anesthesia and nitrous oxide to help bring comfort to her patients. Kayla continually loves to learn so she can grow into the best hygienist her patients deserve. While being a patient in her chair, she strives to create a comfortable, relaxed and judgment-free atmosphere. 

It was in college where she met and fell in love with her now husband. They have now been married since September of 2014 and welcomed their first child in September of 2018. 

Kayla has many interests outside of work, which include: crafting, cooking, baking, reading, and volunteering.
