Kristen, Registered Dental Hygienist
Kristen graduated from UMASS Dartmouth with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology in the year 2001. After several years serving her community as an Environmental Scientist she pursued a different career that would satisfy her love for medical science and provide a better work life balance for her family. In 2017 Kristen graduated from Cape Cod Community College with an Associate in Dental Hygiene and shortly thereafter transferred her License to the state of NH during her family move to Londonderry. Dr. Lyford’s office welcomed her over the summer of 2019 and hired her on permanently in the Fall of 2019. Kristen enjoys providing oral health education to her patients with the most up to date information. It is most rewarding for Kristen to know that she is helping to improve a patient’s oral health which will then continue to improve the patients overall health.
Kristen’s husband is her high school sweetheart and has known him for 23 years and married for 12 years. They are blessed with a boy who is their little hockey star for the Manchester Flames. They are also very lucky to have a beautiful Labrador/Catahoula puppy who continues to keep life interesting. Kristen also enjoys cooking, reading, walking, hiking, rollerblading, swimming, ice skating, planning camping vacations, and spending time with family and friends.
“I have worked as a RDH for 2 years, mostly per diem work involving travel to many different offices within MA & NH. Dr. Lyford has impressed me the most with his education, professional rapport with the patients and eagerness to share his knowledge with his employees. His overall excitement for knowledge energizes me and pushes me to be the best Hygienist I can be.”
