We are so very excited that this is our first week working with Dr. Kristina Durickas! Dr. Durickas is a Pediatric Dentist, just like the other providers at our office! Being a pediatric dentist means that Dr. Durickas completed two years of education beyond dental school just to specialize in kiddos!
Here are some fun facts about her: Dr. Durickas grew up outside of Boston, Massachusetts, but has always had a passion for the outdoors and is very excited to be living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest! She graduated magna cum laude from Georgetown University with a BS in Human Science. Additionally, she finished in the top quintile of her class at the University of Maryland Dental School in Baltimore (we think that’s pretty amazing!). After graduating from dental school, she pursued her love for working with children by completing her pediatric dental residency at University of Connecticut. She maintains memberships with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Dental Association.
In her spare time, Dr. Durickas enjoys being involved in the community and taking on volunteer roles in tutoring and after school programs. When she is not busy enjoying her workday at Kitsap Kids, she can often be found touring on her bike or camping in the mountains, and spending time with her family and friends!
Welcome, Dr. Durickas to the Kitsap Kid’s Family. We are so excited to work with you and can’t wait for you to meet all of the amazing kiddos and their families who come to our office!
