If you’ve visited us recently you’ve probably met Kiah, who joined Hellertown Dental Group in 2019 as a dental assistant-in-training. Kiah typically works the front desk, so her smile is the first thing you’ll see when you walk in our door. 😄
Born in Arkansas, Kiah moved frequently as a child because of her father’s service in the military. Her family eventually settled in Phillipsburg, N.J., where she graduated from high school and enrolled in Warren County Community College. Along the way she worked in a bank and at a daycare.
With an interest in a health care, Kiah eventually took the advice of a friend and decided to consider a career in the dental field. She applied to work here at HDG without any first-hand experience and was hired to fill a position that gives her the opportunity to learn on the job. It’s a good fit for her, she says, because she’s a hands-on type of person. She enjoys working in our busy practice where there is always something to do. She is working on getting her X-ray certification, which will allow her to work more closely with patients during exams.
Outside of work Kiah and her boyfriend are the parents of a 2-year-old daughter, Nylah, and live in Bethlehem. Since she and her boyfriend work opposite shifts she doesn’t have a lot of spare time to fill, but when she does she enjoys a little “retail therapy.” Kiah loves shopping for clothes but confesses her true weakness is phone cases. She has TONS! And she probably has a few in sky blue, because that’s her favorite color. We’ll have to work on getting a HDG one made… 🤔
When asked what she enjoys about working at Hellertown Dental Group, Kiah said it really comes down to the people
“I do enjoy Dr. Ann’s personality. She makes sure her employees are well taken care of,” she said. “I really find myself comfortable here.”
We’re delighted to hear that and hope you’ll enjoy getting to know Kiah as much as we have!
