My name is Chayla Pedersen and I grew up in Florence, MT. I have wanted to be a dental hygienist ever since I can remember. I attended dental hygiene school in Twin Falls, ID. After graduating, I moved back to Missoula and have been with Missoula Pediatric Dentistry since May of 2016. I love being around kids and because of that, I am thankful to have a job working with children and teens. Helping educate youth about the importance of good oral hygiene is one of my passions! I am proud to serve patients at Missoula Pediatric Dentistry. Outside of work I love to camp, fish, and spend time at the lake with family and friends.

Things that make me smile:
Goofy people
My friends
The kids at Missoula Pediatric Dentistry
Fishing/camping at Noxon
