NEW HAVEN — A ceremonial ribbon cutting marked the official opening of the New Haven dental practice of Dr. Kayanna Sayre this week.
Dr. Sayre opened the office Monday on Fifth Street, in the building that once housed Dr. James Lockhart, who retired in July.
On Tuesday, city, county and state officials joined Dr. Sayre in a ribbon cutting ceremony. Among those attending were New Haven Mayor Charles Yonker and town council members, Mason County Chamber of Commerce representatives, Farmers Bank officials, and WV House of Delegates member Jim Butler.
Dr. Sayre, who said her motto is “Perfecting tomorrow’s smile today,” is accepting new patients of all ages. Office hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Friday, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Born and raised in Mason County, Dr. Sayre is the daughter of Mike and Rhonda Sayre of New Haven. She graduated from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry. Dr. Sayre also earned dual bachelor’s degrees in chemistry and biology from the University of Charleston.
Dr. Sayre offers regular dental screenings and exams, fillings, extractions and root canals, as well as other services. Beth Foreman and Lori Crane serve as dental assistants, while her mother, Rhonda, serves as office manager. Dr. Sayre has maintained all patient records from Dr. Lockhart’s former practice.
