Kyle, Practice Administrator
Kyle was raised in Portland, OR. After high school, Kyle played football at Carroll College where he was a part of the 04', 05', 07', and 2010 national championship teams. After the 2007 season, Kyle became a coach for the Saints and coached for three seasons. It was at Carroll where he met Dr. Moore and the two of them dated until they moved down to Omaha, NE so Dr. Moore could attend dental school. While in Omaha, Kyle became a manager at Costco and worked there for 10 years. However, once Dr. Moore and Kyle decided to open up Homegrown Dental, Kyle knew that he wanted to quit Costco and put all of his time and effort into the family business. Not only did he know that his time at Costco would prepare him for this new endeavor, he knew that this opportunity would allow him to spend more time with family. And with this extra time, Kyle loves to spend it outdoors with his two kiddos and Dr. Moore. They love to explore new camping locations, fishing the lakes and endless river systems, and hiking in the backcountry.
Makaliah, Dental Hygienist
Makaliah was born and raised in Polson. She graduated in 2012 from Polson High School, where she was active in golf and softball. She moved to Great Falls in 2017 when she was accepted into the dental hygiene program at Great Falls College-MSU. During her time in Great Falls, she met her now fiancé Connor and shortly after graduating in 2019 with her Associates in Dental Hygiene they moved to San Antonio, TX due to Connor’s job in the Air Force. While in San Antonio, Makaliah worked in private practice for 2 years and continued educating herself in the latest dental advancements. In 2021, they moved back to Great Falls and couldn’t be happier to be back in the state they love and be closer to family! Makaliah can’t wait to share her oral health knowledge with the patients at Homegrown Dental. Her biggest priority is to make everyone feel comfortable and confident with their smiles. When not at work, Makaliah enjoys her time golfing, hiking, fishing, floating the rivers, reading, and spending quality time with family and friends.
Mackenzie, Dental Assistant
Mackenzie was born and raised in Massachusetts. She attended a trade school where she learned dental assisting. She has been a dental assistant since 2016. Mackenzie met my fiancé, Kyle, in 2020 and they made the move to Great Falls in fall of 2020 for Kyle’s job in the Air Force. In her free time, she likes to go kayaking when the weather is nice and explore different scenic views in the area. She and Kyle have two cats: Sunday and Casper.
Tracy, Dental Assistant
Tracy was raised in a military family so she developed a gypsy heart pretty early on in life. Growing up, her family was always on the move... traveling and exploring. Before she had even entered high school, she had been to every state except Hawaii. When it was time for her to be on her own, she kept that lifestyle alive. There was even a year that she just traveled the country in her camper, working at campgrounds/state parks. Tracy always had Montana in my heart though, so one day she just packed up all of her belongings in her truck and here she is! She bought a house and is finally planting some roots in this beautiful state. Tracy and her dogs love to explore and camp in all the hidden treasure spots this state has, but don’t ask because she won’t give away her secret spots! When she is not on an adventure, she is at home gardening, reading, or cuddling with her pups.
