Meet Your St. Peters Dentist
Krista Cayo, DMD
Dr. Cayo is originally from Mascoutah, IL, and she’s been improving patients’ smiles for six years now. She attended Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and continued in the School of Dental Medicine in Alton, Illinois to earn her doctoral degree. When she first went to college, she originally wanted to become a journalist or crime scene investigator. However, after not-so-pleasantly receiving a root canal, she thought to herself that she could do much better than that, and she changed her career path. Today, she loves helping patients be confident about their smiles and oral health!
Dr. Cayo has a certificate in Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD), and she’s also a member of the following organizations:
- American Dental Association
- Missouri Dental Association
- Greater St. Louis Dental Society
Additionally, she works with the charity Give Kids a Smile and the Jamaica Dental Mission Trip that’s associated with her dental school. In the future, she would love to participate in and/or organize more international dental mission trips.
Dr. Cayo and her husband Luis have two children. In her free time, she enjoys doing crafts, cooking, traveling, and playing tennis.
