I’m Kristie, the surgical coordinator here at Kids First Pediatric Dentistry! I graduated from Northern Illinois University with a BS in Elementary Education. I taught elementary school for a while and then was a stay at home mom to my 4 children before I joined the team at Kids First. Here I found a fun way to bring my skills of teaching and love for children together with communicating and working with the many families of our practice! I am the one who will work with families who need to coordinate their dental treatment under general anesthesia. I will also be up front to greet you, welcome you, ease your worries, answer your questions, explain your visit, make your appointments, and make sure your overall experience is exceptional!
