Dr. Carolyn Kittell was born and raised in Laguna Beach, California. As a youth, she achieved great success as a volleyball player and was recruited by the University of Oklahoma. As a student athlete in the Big 12 Conference, she was successful both on and off the court and received her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. However, she wanted to follow in her father’s footsteps and pursue a career in dentistry.
Dr. Kittell received her Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene and after working as a dental hygienist for four years, she decided to continue her education and become a dentist. She received her dental degree from the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry. Her awards included the prestigious Southwest Restorative Dental Academy Award and the American Academy of Endodontics Achievement Award. Upon graduation she was invited by the University to become an adjunct faculty member in the OU Department of Endodontics.
Dr. Kittell believes continuing education is critical for her practice in order to provide her patients with the best possible care. She is an active Faculty Club Member at the Spear Academy in Scottsdale, AZ where she devotes her time to learning the advanced dental techniques and treatments. Dr. Kittell has completed a mini residency at the University of California Los Angeles on treatments for sleep apnea and snoring. In addition, she has extensive experience and training in restoring dental implants and is a certified Invisalign provider.
On the personal side, Dr. Kittell enjoys spending time with her two rescue dogs Birdie and Louie, family and friends, as well as most outdoor activities.
