Christie was born and raised in Cambridge, MD and received her degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of Maryland School of Dentistry in 2000. Christie has been the hygienist at Krause Smiles since 2004! She resides in Salisbury with her tech-savvy husband and her pampered cat, Scarlett (who may be getting a life jacket). Our patients may be surprised to know she LOVES all things Elvis and is an avid lover of boating, hence Scarlett's life jacket. She can make amazing cakes and prides herself on her love of early prevention and positive oral hygiene in even the youngest of her patients.
Krysten is our newest Dental Assistant and comes to us with a love of children (she even still babysits!) & years of experience. She has a strange addiction to Moe's and loves that they yell at her upon her arrival. She enjoys travelling and spending time with her husband. She resides in the Salisbury-area now and is an Eastern Shore native. Please beware...she's been known to consume large quantities of tacos!
Lauren is a Dental Assistant and has been with us for years. She came to us on a whim with an interest in dentistry and will soon be radiology certified. She was also born and raised on the Shore and is a recent graduate of Salisbury University! Luna and Samson are her two pitty mix fur babies, each rescued, and she believes strongly in pet adoption. At any moment she will be able to whip out a picture of them so certainly feel free to ask. She has mastered social media filters and is picture perfect in almost all photos!
Autumn is a recent graduate of Salisbury University in Communication Arts and is most likely the one that greets you on the phone or when checking out or talking you through the Patient Portal. She certainly keeps this office running. Patients may find it funny that Autumn is an 80 year old in a 23 year old body! She enjoys reading, visiting thrift stores, and can tell you the name of a font just by looking at it. Did you know she used to be a patient here??? She lives just outside of Salisbury and you can often find her car parked at an angle as she was probably late arriving to work.
