Dr. Shauna D. Hayes, DMD, CPH, RDH -

Dr. Hayes started her dental career as a dental assistant while attending high school in Chico, California. After completing her Registered Dental Assisting program (RDA), she went on to attain her Registered Dental Hygiene degree (RDH). After 10 years of practicing as a Dental Hygienist, Dr. Hayes decided to go back to school and was accepted to the Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health, in Mesa, Arizona. In 2007, she graduated as a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD), with multiple awards and honors for her clinical work. She also received a Certificate in Public Health from the University of North Carolina. She completed 3 years of working in the public health sector and moved on to the private sector in May, 2010. You may not be able to tell by looking at her, but Dr. Hayes has been working in dentistry for over 30 years!

Dr. Shauna Hayes, her husband Kyle and their son (pictured left) moved to the area specifically to purchase a dental practice and to make Arroyo Grande their permanent home. Being California natives (both born and raised in Chico, California) it was an easy decision to make the Central Coast the place to settle down and raise their family

Dr. Hayes graduated from a private Dental School that had all the "bells and whistles." State of the art facilities, digital X-Rays, and all the newest technology available. Although Dr. Hayes has mastered many of the newer dental technologies, she has never forgot her "dental roots" (no pun intended) and that technology will never replace a gentle, compassionate and caring provider.

Dr. Hayes is licensed by the Dental Board of California and is a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, California Dental Association and the Central Coast Dental Society.
