Kristie

Board-Certified Registered Dental Hygienist

Kristie grew up in rural Minnesota and after spending some time on the east coast after high school, moved to the Duvall area in early 2013. Kristie grew up with horses and has been very involved in horse sports since middle school; in addition to family members involved with dentistry, she credits her time spent with an orthodontist and two dental hygienists at horse shows every weekend for sparking her interest in the dental field. Kristie has also spent extensive time assisting and learning from an equine veterinary dentist about equine dentistry. Moving to Washington serendipitously put Kristie in the path of several more dental professionals; at the time she was supporting her horse habit by bartending, but in 2016 she decided to pursue a bachelor's degree in dental hygiene, graduating with honors from Lake Washington Institute of Technology in 2021.

“I have a wide range of interests and in addition to horses and dentistry, I am fascinated with aviation; I have been a flight attendant since 2017 and I am currently pursuing a private pilot license. My other hobbies include hiking, yoga, travel, reading, and video games. I currently have two horses, Isis and Kate, and share my home with my fiancée Dan and our four birds Kevin, Blue, Pepe, and Buffles. I am excited to be a part of Duvall Family Dental and can't wait to get to know all of the wonderful patients here!”
