Kristyn was born and raised in Holland, Michigan, and graduated from West Ottawa High School. Her initial plans were to attend the University of Michigan with the intention to pursue becoming a dentist. However, Kristyn interned as a dental assistant her senior year and realized that dental hygiene was her calling.
Kristyn attended Grand Rapids Community College’s accredited dental hygiene program and graduated in 2014 with honors. She is certified to administer local anesthesia, as well as nitrous oxide, and is also hospital credentialed at Spectrum to assist the doctors with patients receiving treatment under general anesthesia.
Kristyn has worked in pediatric dentistry since 2015 and loves making kids’ visits to the dentist a fun time! She also enjoys educating and assisting parents to provide the best care for their child.
In her free time, Kristyn enjoys spending time with family and friends. She and her husband, Adam, have 2 dogs—Rookie and Gunner. Kristyn also has a niece, Breslin, and a nephew, Callen, that she loves to spoil!
