In her own words, Dr. Kylea was “motivated to pursue a career in dentistry by a desire to serve people. The patient is the most important person in my dental practice. The patient deserves to be treated as an individual and with respect. I feel you, the patient, should play an integral role in your dental care. My job as a dentist is to diagnose any treatment needs, educate you about these needs, and explain all treatment options. I use my skills and knowledge as a professional to educate you about your mouth and help you to make decisions regarding this important aspect of your health.”
Dr. Kylea is a member of the Illinois State Dental Society (ISDS), the American Dental Association (ADA), and the GV Black Dental Society.
Dr. Kylea enjoys spending most of her time outside of the dental office with her husband and sons.
