Dr. Kristen stated, “Working with children is the most rewarding and fun experience I could have asked for in my profession. I’m passionate about what I do, because I have the opportunity to give my patients the best dental experience, while providing education for a lifetime of great oral health.”
Dr. Kristen is married to Brian, and they will be adding a Great Dane to their family very soon. In their free time they enjoy traveling, being outside, and spending time with their family and friends. Dr. Kristen has been skydiving (twice!), has swam with dolphins and beluga whales, and loves doing anything at the beach, like snorkeling and scuba diving. She’s always willing to try anything new and adventurous!
