staff member, Kristina


Kristina’s career started in high school in 1982 as a dental assistant. She graduated with a degree in dental science from Fairleigh Dickinson Dental School in 1989. One of her most memorable and a time that gave her some of the best training in her career is when she was a contracted civilian hygienist at MCRD (Marine Corp. Recruiting Depot) in San Diego, California.

She has found this profession extremely rewarding and has developed many long standing relationships over the years. Keeping up with the latest practices and taking continuing education is very important to Kristina in order to provide her patients the utmost care possible. Over the years she has transitioned from full time to part time practice.

Recently her and her fiancé moved to The Poconos in Pennsylvania, but loves to still come in to practice a few times a month. Since moving to Pennsylvania she is pursuing real estate in her area in Lords Valley/Pike-Wayne and has partnered with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.

In her leisure time she enjoys spending time with her family, traveling with her fiancé, loving up her fur babies Beau (dog), Gronk & Konan (cats). She’s an active member in her community and is the secretary of her pickleball club, enjoys reading for her book club & has picked up her golf game again.
