Kayla Adams

Welcome! My name is Kayla and I am a dental assistant at Summit Family Dentistry. I graduated from CVCC with an Associate of Arts and attended NCDATS in Charlotte to obtain my Dental Assisting credentials. I have been assisting for two years and am currently attending CVCC to finish prerequisites for admissions into hygiene school. In my spare time, I have competed and held several titles in pageantry. I am also a director of the Miss Dallas Scholarship Pageant.

I like dentistry because it allows me to work with the public and help others achieve the smile they want!

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my dog, Mazzy, boyfriend, Curtis, and watching New England Patriots football.


Darlene Morris

Welcome to our office! My name is Darlene and I am the Front Office Administrator for Summit Family Dentistry. I started working in dentistry in 2008 as a dental assistant and expanded my career to administrative. I studied Health Care Management with specialization in Human Resources at Waldorf University. I am the friendly face at the front desk and happy to help answer your questions, plan for appointments, help resolve concerns and make your visits positive.

What I love most about dentistry is interacting with our patients and making their dental experience great and positive.

I grew up in a small town just outside of Roanoke, VA and moved to Mooresville, NC in 2016. I moved here with my boyfriend, Ryan, and our two dogs, Chloe and Abby. When I am not at the office you can find me at Club Pilates, traveling with Ryan for soccer, or crafting with my Cricut.


Gayle Cillo

Hi I’m Gayle, the Front Office Assistant at Summit Family Dentistry. I look forward to welcoming you to our office! Dentistry has been a part of life since I was an assistant as a teenager. I loved it immediately and went to college to become a Dental Hygienist. After a 34-year hygiene career, I made the switch to the front of the office two years ago when my husband and I moved with our cat Felix to Mooresville.

My favorite part of my job is being able to interact with our patients every day.

When I’m not at the office I love to work out in my garden, kayak on Lake Norman and travel around exploring our new home state.
