Kyla Hollen, DMD, MPH

Pediatric Dentist

Dr. Kyla Hollen 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 with 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. Dr. Hollen believes in using current technology to deliver excellent care and is passionate about the medical management model of dental caries whenever possible. 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 if there is snow around, and spending time with her rescue dogs, Missle and Taffy.
