Meet the Doctor
The Greatest Showman
Kristen Crabtree, DDS
Dr. Kristen grew up in Texarkana, TX. She received her undergraduate degree in biology from the University of Arkansas- Woo Pig Sooie! During her time in college, she was active in the Pi Beta Phi sorority. After college, she completed her dental training at Texas A&M Health Science Center, Baylor College of Dentistry. She was on the Dean’s list during this time and also received the Dr. P. Earle Williams Award. It was during her time in dental school that she realized her passion in dentistry was working with children. She continued her education at Baylor to complete two additional years to specialize in Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. Kristen became a diplomate for the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry in 2018. Dr. Kristen worked in Texas for 5 years after graduating from residency until her heart couldn’t keep her from returning to Arkansas any longer.
Dr. Kristen married her amazing husband Brian (also a fellow Razorback) in 2015. They welcomed their daughter, Ainsley, in September of 2022. Fun fact, Ainsley is Dr. Kristen’s maiden name! They are so blessed to have the sweetest baby. Dr. Kristen has a Great Dane, Hodge, that you are bound to hear about when visiting our office. You may even notice his picture in our waiting room! Dr. Kristen LOVES to dance and sing (her dancing is just slightly better than her singing, but we still love her!) In her free time, she enjoys traveling, taking Hodge on long walks, being outside, spending time with her family and friends, and of course cheering on the hogs! Dr. Kristen has been skydiving (twice), has swum with dolphins and beluga whales, and loves doing anything at the beach, like snorkeling and scuba diving. She’s always willing to try anything new and adventurous!
“I am so excited to return to Northwest Arkansas and serve this amazing community! It was a long time coming to open the practice of my dreams, and my dreams finally became a reality! Working with children is the most rewarding and fun experience I could have asked for in my profession. I’m passionate about what I do, and I have the opportunity to give my patients the best dental experience, while providing education for a lifetime of great oral health. I can’t wait to welcome you into our practice here at Crabtree Pediatric Dentistry and I promise to take care of each child as if they were my own!”
