Meet Our Doctor

Dr. Kristen Millender
General Dentist

Dr. Kristen “Kris” Millender grew up as one of seven children. She grew up partly on Long Island and later in Virginia, where she graduated from Courtland High School in Fredericksburg. After having her first child, she attended and studied Chemistry at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) and moved to Miami to complete her master’s in biomedical sciences. Her graduate studies provided Dr. Millender with a deep understanding of physiology and how all the systems of the body are connected. This experience helped frame her holistic approach to dental care. After finishing graduate school, she was accepted by her top choice dental school, and her family left Miami for Maryland. She completed her Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of Maryland, School of Dentistry, in 2019. 

Dr. Millender’s personal core values are wisdom, spirituality, honesty, trust, love, gratitude, and continued education, and she naturally infuses all of these elements in her interactions with others. She provides the best treatment to patients by taking a holistic approach to comprehensive care and prevention, while utilizing the most up-to-date technology to help with diagnosing and treatment planning. Most patients appreciate her thorough and gentle approach to their dental care, especially those who may deal with dental anxiety.

Like most “mompreneurs,” Dr. Millender stays active in many personal and professional endeavors, including leadership, coaching, and leading teams on community-based projects. She currently serves as the Chair of the Leadership Committee of the Maryland State Dental Association and was recently awarded the New Dentist Leadership Award and the President’s Honors Award at the 2022 Chesapeake Dental Conference. 

Outside the dental office, she spends lots of time centering herself spiritually, studying, running after her three kids, and spending quality time with her husband who helps make all her wildest dreams come true.
