There are lots of reasons that Sehnert Precision Dentistry is the highest-rated dental practice in Lewisville, Texas, and just one of them is our outstanding team members. Our entire team takes pride in making patients feel like one of the family, and our dental hygienist Kristen is no exception.
Kristen joined the Sehnert team in 2014. She entered the field of dentistry because she wanted to help people. “I wanted to be someone who was there to help others learn and improve their health,” she said. Her favorite part of being a hygienist is getting to know her patients. “I’ve gotten the opportunity to meet and talk to some very cool and interesting people through this job,” Kristen said. “People open up to you and want you to share their days and what’s going on in their lives. After a while, it’s just like having an extended family. It’s a special perk that you don’t get with most other jobs.”
While her interests are varied, one thing Kristen truly loves doing when she’s not at work is exploring, including local sites and new restaurants. In fact, if Kristen weren’t a hygienist, she would enjoy writing and taking photographs for a Texas travel magazine, such as Texas Highways magazine. “I love adventuring and finding the hidden jewels of our state,” she said. “It would at least give me justification for all of my random trips.” If she could go anywhere in the world, she would pick Big Bend and Rome. “I have always wanted to go to Big Bend and see the rock formations and the beautiful colors in that area. There would be views you could never get tired of,” Kristen said. “If I visited Rome, I don’t think I would ever come home. There is so much history and so many things to see there; I don’t think that I’d ever be able to see it all.”
Because she is always thinking of her patients, she leaves the following advice: “Place importance on yourself and your smile. There is only one you in the world; be proud of that and take the actions to take care of yourself,” she said. “A smile is one of the best things to brighten a day and you should never feel ashamed to show yours off.”
Kristen is just one of many team members who genuinely love providing patients with gentle care and personalized service. If you’d like to experience that caliber of dentistry and live in or near Lewisville, Texas, contact our office today to schedule an appointment. We can’t wait to see your smile.
