Kaya

EFDA

Hello! My name is Kaya McDaniel and I am so grateful to have found such a fun and welcoming office to continue my career as an EFDA.

I was born and raised here in the Rogue Valley, and my journey as a Dental Assistant began in 2015 after graduating from SODAE. Since then I have gained an incredible amount of knowledge throughout my career and continue to learn as modern dentistry is constantly improving. The most rewarding aspect of my job is not only helping improve smiles and overall oral health, but I get to connect and build relationships with all of my patients.

As far as my personal life goes, I am married to my high school sweet heart and have been blessed with two beautiful children. We try to lead a simple life, teaching our children the importance of faith, prayer and good ethics. Our hobbies include archery, hunting, fishing and riding, and we spend our time outdoors as much as possible.

I studied at RCC in their Dental Assistant Program and obtained my EFDA certification, Radiology, and Associates Degree. I chose the dental field because I believe helping people feel confident and comfortable with their smiles is so rewarding. I love to be around people and help them, so I could not think of a better field to join.

I Love Summit because it feels more like working with family than clocking in and clocking out. I have learned so much from all the people here and cannot wait to continue to learn more each day!

When I'm not working, I love to hike the table rocks, go rock climbing, and be at the Oregon Coast. I adore dogs and most cats and have one dog and one cat. I have a 2-year-old son who takes up most of my current free time and am the youngest of 3 sisters!
