Dr. Shahrukh Syed
Dr. Shahrukh Syed first discovered his passion for dentistry through his grandmother as he accompanied her to her dental office visits and witnessed first-hand how dental implants and dentures elevated her life, giving her the ability to enjoy the foods she loved, take her medications, and regain confidence.
Kristan began working for Morrison Dental Group in November of 2018. She was born and raised in Portsmouth and has spent her entire career in the dental field.
Her interest was sparked at the age of 13 after she underwent jaw surgery. Kristan joined MDG as an office coordinator after spending many years as a treatment coordinator at an orthodontic office. She most enjoys interacting with our patients and getting to know them personally as they go through treatment. In her spare time, you can find Kristan by the softball field with her daughter or on the beach.
Kayla joined the Morrison Dental Group team as an admin assistant in our Hampton office after previously working in the retail and hospitality industries. Her positive attitude and hard work quickly earned her the title of Office Coordinator for our Norge office. Her favorite part of dentistry is being able to change the way patients feel about coming to the dental office.
Kayla enjoys providing a safe and comforting experience so that nervous patients leave our office feeling confident that they have found their dental home. She is motivated each day by our awesome patients and the great providers we have in our office. When she’s not working, you can find Kayla spending her time with her son, niece, and nephew. They are her greatest motivations.
