Dr. Kristy Hayes is thrilled to join Dr. Adams and his team in America’s finest city! Dr. Hayes is committed to providing the highest quality dental care to your child in a fun and positive environment. Originally from Toledo, Ohio, Dr. Hayes realized her passion for working with children as a dance teacher and summer camp counselor teaching dramatic arts and sailing. Dr. Hayes proudly served service members and military families first as a General Dentist and then as a Pediatric Dentist in the United States Army for nine years before joining our practice. Dr. Hayes’ favorite thing about being a Pediatric Dentist is helping kids overcome their anxiety and learn that the going to the dentist can be fun!
