Kristen Renaud, RDH Dental Hygienist
Kristen Renaud started out her journey in dentistry, while watching her mother’s joy of the profession as a dental hygienist herself. After a few changes to her college majors, the decision to follow her mother’s footsteps and pursue dental hygiene has left her with no regrets. Kristen completed her degree in dental hygiene from Quinsigamond Community College. Upon graduating she decided to return as a clinical instructor, part time, in addition to working in a clinical setting. She has taught students at both Quinsigamond Community College; as well as MCPHS, Forsyth in Boston. Although, as her family was growing, she decided to focus on her clinical career and put teaching on hold. Kristen has the advantage of bringing her background in education to her patients. She brings joy and compassion, while she educates and supports her patients to achieve their wellness. She is passionate about the oral-systemic connection and you may often catch her talking about cardiac health and nutrition with her patients.
Kristen is a true Massachusetts local, being born and raised in Worcester and now lives in Oxford with her family. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and children. Kristen’s two young daughters keep both of them busy on days off. During cooler months, she enjoys a good book by the fire or a good binge on Netflix. Though when the weather is more seasonable, you may catch her out for a run, that is if you can keep up with her!
