Vanessa Kristensen, DMD
Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist
Dr. Vanessa was born and raised in sunny California. She completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Oregon. During her time in Eugene, she fell in love with the Pacific Northwest and of course the Oregon Ducks!
She then moved to Arizona to complete her dental school training at A.T. Still University – Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health (ASDOH). There she earned her doctorate in dental medicine and certificate in dental public health. Seeking a new adventure, she moved to Charleston, South Carolina to complete her pediatric dental residency.
In her free time, Dr. Vanessa (aka Dr. V) enjoys training her dog Pepper, tackling home improvement projects, and cheering on her favorite sports teams. Go Ducks! She mostly just enjoys making lasting memories with friends and family.
