Meet Kristen Grisham, D.M.D.
Dr. Kristen Grisham is a native of Atlanta, having grown up just south of the city, and she is very excited to join our team! She enjoys all aspects of restorative and family dentistry and has a passion for providing genuine, gentle dental care while getting to know her patients.
Dr. Grisham attended Kennesaw State University, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in biology, graduating as a Phi Eta Sigma, Golden Key, and Who’s Who Honor Society member. She was also inducted into the Order of Omega Honor Society. While there, Dr. Grisham was a cheerleader and earned the Owl Athletics Academic Achievement Award and Coach’s Choice Leadership Award.
She continued her studies at the Dental College of Georgia in Augusta, earning the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society Junior and Senior Certificates of Academic Achievement for being in the top 12% of her dental class. She also received her advanced dental training and education from Pankey Institute.
After dental school, she completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) Residency at the Charlie Norwood VA Hospital in Augusta, during which she received additional training in comprehensive care, dental implant placement, third molar extractions, as well as various oral and periodontal surgeries with Dr. Carlisle as one of her co-residents.
Today, Dr. Grisham is a member of the American Dental Association, Georgia Dental Association, American Dental Political Action Committee, and the American Association for Women Dentists.
Dr. Grisham met her husband, Sean, in high school. They have a beautiful two-year old daughter, Madilyn Kate, and recently celebrated the birth of their new baby girl, Macy. They frequently spend their weekends walking their two dogs, cheering on Atlanta United, and enjoying time with family.
Dr. Grisham and her husband have served together on several mission trips to Haiti. This experience culminated in the opportunity for Dr. Grisham to co-lead the trip as a senior dental student with Dr. Carlisle, and she hopes to return as an attending provider as soon as time allows!
