Dr. Kristen Douglas is a native of Mississippi’s sister state, Alabama, but she has spent the last 16 years calling Mississippi her home. After receiving her Bachelor of Science degree from Mississippi College, she graduated from the University of Mississippi Medical Center, School of Dentistry.
Before and during dental school, Dr. Kristen worked for a pediatric dentist and quickly realized how fun it was to work with children and their parents. In 2016, she completed a two-year pediatric dental residency at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, TN. While in residency she had the unique opportunity to rotate through St. Jude and LeBonheur Children’s hospitals as part of her training.
She is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and is currently a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the Mississippi Dental Association, and the American Dental Association.
She and her husband, Mathew, have a daughter, Eliza. Dr. Kristen would say that being a mother has greatly impacted how she practices. With so much information to process and so many decisions to make, she understands the challenges that parents face when it comes to making healthcare choices for their children. Dr. Kristen considers it a privilege to be trusted with the care of your child.
Dr. Kristen and her family love to spend their free time exploring the outdoors on foot or bicycle. They also love to spend time with their church community and traveling.< Back to Team
