Kaila has been a Registered Dental Hygienist for well over 30 years starting off her career in Pedodontics, then moving into General Practice. After so many years, she is still very passionate about her job and gets the most gratification connecting with patients and seeing the results of making a positive effect on the overall health of her patients. Kaila has taken many additional courses with a focus on periodontics, and feels her forte is helping people feel comfortable and at ease, as well as helping them have an understanding of what their specific needs may be. Kaila grew up in Louisiana, where her family is from, and still resides. Her education was completed at TJC in Tyler, TX which carried the high prestige of being 3rd in the nation at that time for Dental Hygiene.
