Kristen Nicole Presswood, D.M.D., M.S.

Born and raised in Northern California, Dr. Kristen Presswood came to Florida to further her higher education. Upon completing her Master’s Degree in Biomedical Sciences and her Doctorate Degree in Dental Medicine, she has fallen in love with South West Florida and is excited to make it her forever home. 

Dr. Kristen is passionate about educating patients on the importance of oral health. She provides an exceptional patient experience through communication and quality service.

While dentistry is her main focus, Dr. Kristen has a passion for facial esthetics that has included advanced training in Neuromodulators (Botox), Dermal Fillers, Lip Rejuvenation and Microneedling.
