Getting To Better Know Our Amazing Hygienist, Kristina


WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE FUN for our patients to get to know our team a bit better, so we asked them to answer some fun questions.

Here is what Kristina, one of our fantastic White Center dental hygienists, had to say.

Where are you originally from?

“ I was born in Renton, Washington, grew up in the Kent East Hill area, and currently live in Covington.”

What made you decide that you wanted to become a dental hygienist?

“For as long as I can remember, I have always loved going to the dentist. I always had great experiences. I started out as a dental assistant and later pursued Dental Hygiene. I enjoy meeting new people, establishing relationships, and improving the health of our patients.”

What are you favorite activities outside of work?

“I’m typically an Energizer bunny who can’t stay still. I love the outdoors and any outdoors-y activities. I enjoy gardening, playing with my two dogs, and fishing.”

Do you have some exciting news that you would like to share?

“Yes. We are expecting our first child!!! No names set in stone yet. Any suggestions?”

Do you have a favorite restaurant?

“My favorite restaurant is Azteca. I love Mexican food!!! One of my favorite dishes is arroz con pollo. I order it frequently.”

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would that be?

“I wouldn’t have it any other way but to continue living in Washington. Born and raised, my family is here; it’s home. I can handle the inconsistent and unpredictable seasons.”

Thank you for taking the time to get to know Kristina. Next month, we will feature Sandy, one of our White Center dental assistants.
