Kyla Hollen DMD, MPH
“As a pediatric dentist, I help grow healthy families. Establishing healthy habits at a young age can lead to a lifetime of wellness. This is why I love what I do!”
Dr. Kyla Hollen is a west coast native. She is a graduate from Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health. During her time in dental school, she focused her outreach activities towards working with at-risk youth residing in a boot camp in Queen Creek, Arizona.
After graduation, Dr. Hollen moved to rural Missouri where she obtained a Master’s in Public Health degree that provided her with the resources to develop community programs geared towards improving the oral health of school children and preparing expectant teenage mothers to care for the oral health of their babies. Dr. Hollen completed her pediatric dentistry specialty training through Lutheran Medical Center which partnered with Tucson area training sites. She and her husband fell in love with the area and decided to call Tucson home for good. Dr. Hollen enjoys working with the community and welcomes invitations to participate in volunteer opportunities as well as professional speaking on pediatric dental topics.
Dr. Hollen is a board certified pediatric dentist. She is also certified in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS). Her areas of focus include: prevention, treatment, and assisting those with special needs, and believes in using current technology to deliver excellent care. She volunteers with the Arizona Dental Foundation to organize the Tucson Gives Kids A Smile event which provides free dental care to underserved children as well as internationally with Flying Samaritans. Outside of the office, you’ll find her running, hiking, skiing, and spending time with her rescue dogs, Missle and Taffy.
