With its snow capped peaks and magical Northern Lights, Dr. Kjersti hails from a land far, far away from the sandy beaches of the Palmetto State. Dr. Kjersti – pronounced Dr. Kirstie – grew-up in a small town in Norway with a backyard ski slope, horse in the barn and always a dog nearby. During her student years, she volunteered at a local nursing home providing companionship to the residents. Following graduation, she practiced general dentistry in Norway and England for several years before coming to the US. Since Coastal Kids Dental treats through young adulthood, Dr. Kjersti’s diverse experience and extensive knowledge of general dentistry is especially helpful to the “big kids” of the practice. When she’s not busy answering every “but, why momma?” for her two young boys at home, she and her husband make time to indulge their love of fine food, travel and the great outdoors.
