Meet Dr. Dunn
Dr. Kaila Dunn’s Bio
Dr. Kaila Dunn was born and raised here in Millersburg Ohio, and recalls the desire to become a dentist as young as 11 years old, a unique combination of her two passions: of art and science. She is a West Holmes Highschool alumna and continued her education at Ashland University. During her time at Ashland, she was involved in the Alpha Delta Pi sorority, met her husband, Kevin and graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree in Biology with honors. Between her undergraduate studies she also spent time volunteering alongside Dr. Debbie Aten and her team at the North Carolina- Missions of Mercy free dental clinic, where her passion for community service deepened. In 2016 Dr. Dunn graduated with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery, from THE Ohio State University College of Dentistry. While studying dentistry was the main focus of her time at Ohio State, she was also involved in a number of organizations such as; American Student Dental Association, American Association of Women Dentists, Give Kids a Smile, and the Phi Kappa Psi dental fraternity. Upon graduation from Dental School, Dr. Dunn and her husband returned to her hometown to begin her career at Millersburg Dental, purchasing the practice in October of 2020. Dr. Dunn prioritizes staying current with the latest trends in dentistry, and advancing her abilities to serve her patients better. She is a graduate of the Midwest Implant Institute, and has received training from the American Academy of Facial Esthetics in Botox and dermal fillers.
Outside of the office, Dr. Dunn enjoys spending time with her husband and two dogs, Ed and Becky. They reside on her family’s farm, surrounded by aunts and cousins! Together they enjoy being outside, going on side-by-side rides, walks around the “neighborhood”, hosting friends and family for football games or special occasions! On her own time, she enjoys reading, podcasts, exercise and hunting/trap shooting.
Dr. Dunn’s intention is to create an environment at Millersburg Dental that challenges the negative perception of going to the dentist. She believes oral health can be maintained in a comfortable, relaxing, and even enjoyable environment. She pledges to devote her professional career to all aspects of general and cosmetic dentistry, and enjoys treating patients of all ages and dental conditions.
