Meet Dr. Kristen Darville

Dr. Darville grew up in Nassau, Bahamas and attended Queen’s College from elementary to high school. As a child, she only visited the dentist for emergencies, which was very typical and still is to this day for many children. After having a rocky start with her first dentist, she eventually ended up with a dental visit that left a lasting positive impression on her. This experience was her motivation to pursue pediatric dentistry.

Dr. Darville’s goal is to provide quality care in a kid friendly environment to allay your child’s dental fears. She aims to create positive dental habits that will go with your child into adulthood. Like most pediatric dentists, she encourages parents to be preventive and not reactive in your child’s dental health.

After completing her dental degree, Dr. Darville went on to pediatric dentistry residency in a hospital-based program at Metrohealth Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio.
