Dr. Kimberly Pitts is an alumnus of Dawson Academy and a member of the Spear Faculty Club. She attended Middle Tennessee State University graduating with a B.S. before enrolling in The University of Tennessee, College of Dentistry. In 1997, she received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree and began her private practice with her father. That same year she married Joseph Kennon Pitts, the Business Administrator in the office. In 2002, Dr. Kimberly Pitts purchased the practice and continued to work with her father for a combined 17 years until until his retirement in 2014. Her father placed a high attention on having the latest technology to provide the best level of care to patients. Our practice continues to follow his lead. She has received her Masters in the Academy of General Dentistry, which less than 2% of dentists receive!
Her church family is very important to her and without the constant intercession of her Lord Jesus Christ, she could not accomplish anything. She and Joe are members of Believer’s Chapel Church, which she has attended since 1978. She and Joe also participate in outdoor activities like golf, water skiing, boating, fishing, snow skiing, or anything else that can be done outdoors. No children but the sweetest dog (shih tzu) in the world. She loves to learn all she can about being a better dentist. Her practice has been recognized in the Nashville’s top 10 dentist list!
After graduating in 2009 with an Associates Degree in Dental Hygiene, Kyla began to practice in Long Island, NY. She relocated to Nashville, Tennessee in January 2012. Since then, Kyla has enjoyed being partners with Dr. Pitts in establishing a Dental Fitness Program, which coaches patients to gain control over their dental health. Kyla takes pride in helping patients who have not had the opportunity to obtain routine dental visits and loves to help heal and improve their health. Kyla loves teaching patients skills and techniques to maintain their dental health at home with their daily routine.
Kyla grew up on a small horse farm in Pennsylvania where she spent many years western riding in horse show competitions. She still has the pony she first learned to ride with, Fantasy.
