Following dental school, Dr. Kristina completed a two year General Practice Residency at the Medical College of Georgia (recently renamed “Georgia Reagents University”).

A general dentist who is a “Fellow” in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD) has been recognized by other general dentists as a leader and example to other dentists of the importance of quality continuing education to patient care. Other organizations of which Dr. Kristina is an active member include the American Dental Association (ADA), the Illinois State Dental Society (ISDS), and The Chicago Dental Society (CDS).
