Kyla Macdonald graduated in 1993 from Torrens Valley Institute, Adelaide as a Dental Hygienist. Born on the Gold Coast and schooled in Maitland, NSW before living in Townsville, she considers herself a Queenslander ‘mostly’.
Hygienists first worked in Queensland from 1989, and at that time Adelaide was the only training centre in Australia. Kyla returned to work in Townsville newly qualified and has worked in Cairns, then Gympie from 1998. Kyla’s interest is in preventative dentistry and helping patients keep their teeth ‘for life’.
She moved with her partner to the Sunshine Coast in 2017 and is enjoying the outdoors riding mountain bikes and walking her two dogs.
