Kristen is a Co-Owner and Digital Specialist for K and B Orthodontics LLC. After completing her Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry from Susquehanna University, Kristen knew she wanted to work in a lab, just did not realize it would be her mother’s. Growing up, Kristen would constantly get in trouble for messing around with acrylics while her mother worked, so it only made sense that one day she would be working with it. With a fascination of teeth, Kristen always wanted to be able to improve everyone’s smiles. After her mother decided it would be best to purchase a 3D printer, she thought there would be no better person to take on the responsibility than Kristen. In March 2018, Jane and Kristen set out to purchase their first 3D printer and the rest is history.
