Keela Sutton is a dental hygienist and community outreach clinical lead at La Clinica’s East Medford Dental Clinic.
She holds a bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene from the Oregon Institute of Technology in Klamath Falls and has worked with La Clinica since 2008.
Keela is a native of Roseburg who lives in Medford with her husband and two children. In addition to spending time with her family, she enjoys working out, photography, reading, traveling, and wakeboarding.
As community outreach clinical lead, Keela helps ensure La Clinica is able to serve dental needs at a number of community sites.
“I love providing care to the diverse population that we see here,” she said. “It is so gratifying to give back to people who may not have been able to be seen for health care without us.”
“I remember how much I did not care for my hygienist growing up and because of that, I have always vowed to be the best hygienist possible,” she added. “I try to be personable and fun with each patient and give them a very thorough and efficient visit where they leave happy and looking forward to their next visit with me.”
