Kyla Derouen

Treatment Coordinator

I’m from Lafayette, but I grew up in Cecilia and graduated from Cecilia High School in 2002. Then I attended Acadiana Area Career College to become a dental assistant in 2010. I work with Dr. Balhoff on all New Patients and Observation patients to ensure that they have the best experience possible! I also meet with patients and parents about the various treatment options that will best suit themselves or their children based on their unique needs and goals. I coordinate the financial terms of the treatment to ensure that they fit within the patient’s budget as best as possible. The best part of my job is definitely the people- both our patients and my co-workers! I love them all, and they’ve become like family to me!

I married my husband Drew in 2014. We have three girls named Eugenee, Graci, and Sabyn, four dogs, and a cat. I enjoy hunting, fishing, going to the camp for the weekend, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
