Kristina Svensson, DDS
Board Certified Pediatric Dentist
Dr. Kristina Svensson grew up in San Francisco. She is thrilled to be providing care for kids in the same neighborhood where she grew up. She became a dentist because it combines science, taking care of tiny people, neat instruments, and teeny precision handicrafts all in one!
Dr. Svensson's experience as a pediatric dentist and a mom have solidified her practice philosophy around prevention, minimally invasive dentistry, and treating all kids as if they are her own. She has extensive experience working with children with early childhood caries and also special health care needs. She is comfortable speaking Russian, Swedish, and Spanish with her patients.
Dr. Svensson received a B.S. in Chemistry from UC Berkeley and her Doctorate of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) from the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, where she was in the top 2% of her class, was inducted in the Tau Kappa Omega, Phi Kappa Phi, and Omicron Kappa Upsilon Academic Honors Societies, and also received the American Dental Association Foundation Scholarship for Academic Excellence. Dr. Svensson completed her pediatric dental specialty training at the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee.
Dr. Svensson is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and an alumnus of the National Health Service Corps for her years of service at a Federally Qualified Health Center in San Francisco. She was an associate professor at the Dugoni School of Dentistry for 5 years where she helped implement the Virtual Dental Home and consults for statewide oral health initiatives. She is an inaugural CalHealthCares Award Recipient and continues to work with underserved children in the Bay Area every week, in addition to having her own office.
Dr. Svensson spends her free time playing with her children, hand lettering, and weaving. She believes that practice makes progress.
Teya grew up in SF. She graduated with an AS in Health Education and also completed the dental assisting program at CCSF. She has been in the dental field for over two years, and she loves it!
