Registered Dental Hygienist
Kierstin is a graduate of Utah Valley University, where she lived for 23 years before moving back to Georgia. Although she’s been working in the dental industry for about 8 years, she’s only been working in our office since 2021. It feels like she’s been part of the team for many years, as she takes care of patients’ oral hygiene and educates them on the best way to achieve a healthy smile. Even though our office is full of experts, she wants YOU to be an expert on your own oral health. She loves working with patients of all ages and being a part of their care journey. She’s admittedly a nerd about dentistry (and health in general), so she’s continually learning and keeping up with the latest advancements in dental technology and science. Kierstin loved exploring canyons and National Parks on the west coast with her five kids, and is now ready to explore Georgia’s hidden gems and the east coast as well. She was also able to explore Guatemala doing humanitarian dental work. Besides traveling, she loves paddleboarding, gardening, listening to podcasts or books, and spending time with her family.

Jennifer is a graduate of Ferris State University, Big Bay de Noc College, and Northland College where she’s successfully completed her coursework to become both a registered dental hygienist and a certified dental assistant. Jennifer has been working in dentistry for nearly three decades. She’s been with our Buckhead dental office since May 2006, where she serves as one of our dental hygienists. Some of Jennifer’s responsibilities include collecting your medical and dental history, charting your dental conditions, and helping with emergency cases. Jennifer says one of the best things about her work is that patients ask questions, and she provides them with the knowledge and education they’re looking for. After becoming a registered dental hygienist, Jennifer pledged to continually improve her professional knowledge and skills to provide a greater degree of service to each patient in her care. Jennifer says she likes working with patients one on one and reminding them that one method of treatment doesn’t work for all patients. She loves to inspire her patients and make them the center of attention. When she’s not in the office, Jennifer is usually cycling, traveling, attending social events around the city, skiing, and spending time with family and friends.
