Kiersten is the newest member of the Ivy Dental Team and we are so thrilled to have found her! With lots of experience in customer service but no previous experience in dental or medical Kiersten has been thrown in the deep end and we are all blown away with her ability to navigate through this new field!

Sam joined our team in February of 2020 and stuck it out with us through all of the craziness of 2020 – we are so lucky that she did! Not only did Sam pick up all dental terminology and procedures incredibly fast and became a key piece of our team, but her easy going attitude is a joy to work with during our busy days. Sam enjoys traveling to the beach or campsite on the weekends with her family.
Hello! my name is JaKayla, and have been with Ivy Dental since finishing my associates degree in dental assisting in 2022. My job is to help the office run smoothly for both patients and doctors. I chose dental assisting because it’s a field that that is always evolving and allows me to grow with each change in materials, new procedures or new technology. I like dental assisting because all cases vary and the more complex cases can be challenging but once completed it feels so rewarding for everyone! I’m working toward getting into dental hygiene school in the next year or two so I can continue my growth in the field. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and cat. I enjoy traveling, playing games, roller skating, and trying new foods.
I look forward to meeting you in the office soon!
