ABOUT DR. HAYS
Dr. Hays grew up in rural Northern California. She developed a love of nature and animals at a young age and spent much of her young life riding horses, hiking and skiing. Her family owned one of the local dental practices and she had the opportunity to work in the office as a dental assistant. Having this experience ignited her desire to become a dentist.
Dr. Hays attended the University of California Santa Cruz and earned her B.S. in Health Sciences graduating with honors. After graduation, she attended Oregon Health and Science University School of Dentistry. After dental school Dr. Hays entered a group practice and began refining her dental skills.
In her dental practice she takes pride in making patients feel comfortable and relaxed during their treatment. She enjoys helping people be confident in their oral health by utilizing evidence based and preventive dentistry. She always looks forward to seeing her patient's beautiful and bright smiles.
In her free time, Megan enjoys spending time with her husband, young son Henry and their dog Oslo. They like camping, fishing, going to concerts and exploring the Pacific Northwest.

I’m a native Oregonian and grew up in the Portland metro area! I have worked in a dental administrative roll for over 10 years! I feel so incredibly lucky that I get to spend my day with an amazing team and wonderful patients. I love the individual care, compassion, and knowledge that Dr. Crocker and Dr. Hays provides to each of our patients. I look forward to welcoming you into our 360 Dentistry family and answering any questions you may have.
In my free time I love cheering on my Portland Trail Blazers, Dragon Boating, Curling and spending time with my fur babe Cupcake and her Kitty Brother!
My career experience spans over 20 years graduating from the Dental Hygiene Program at Mt. Hood Community College in 1995. I joined 360 Dentistry in 2005 and have been fortunate to grow in my profession working for dentists who practice a high standard of care.
Our dental team focuses on the long term health of our patients. This allows me, as a hygienist, to build a personal and professional relationship with patients while guiding them to optimal dental health.
I became a dental hygienist in 2001, graduating from the Oregon Institute of Technology with a Bachelor’s of Science. Prior to completing my hygiene degree I worked as a dental assistant. I love every aspect of dentistry and really enjoy getting to know each and every patient. I am fortunate to be a part of the 360 team; where we all have the same love and passion for dentistry and providing personalized care to our patients.
In my free time I love exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my husband, two daughters and our wonderful dog Otis!
I grew up an East Coast girl in my home state Maryland. I worked as a dental assistant for about a year and then moved to Oregon in June 2014. I feel so fortunate and blessed to be a part of this extraordinary team at 360 Dentistry! I truly love working in the dental field, and I enjoy getting to personally know our patients. All of us strive together to ensure each one of our patients are welcomed and receive the most excellent care.
In the other hours of the week, I cherish spending time with my husband, my dog Wookie, discovering new places in Portland, and exploring the great Pacific Northwest.
