Dr. Kristen Morris was born and raised in Boise, Idaho. She attended the University of Idaho for her Bachelor of Arts degree in biology with a minor zoology. Her graduate education was achieved at the University of Washington School of Dentistry where she received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2007. After graduation, Dr. Morris completed an advanced education in general dentistry residency in Honolulu, Hawaii at the Kokua Kalihi Valley Medical Center. This is a great community clinic where she was able to increase her skills and knowledge in all facets of dentistry while enjoying the island life on her off time.
Dr. Morris couldn’t stay away long from the Emerald City and returned to the greater Seattle area in 2008. She enjoys all aspects of general dentistry, especially root canal therapy, extractions and treating children. She is grateful to have the opportunity to work in an amazing environment like Mukilteo Dental Center that allows her to expand her knowledge and offer more inclusive treatment to her patients. An important philosophy in Dr. Morris’ dental practice is the importance of building meaningful relationships with the entire family by providing exceptional and quality service. Dr. Morris’ travels include time in the Philippines where she volunteered in a Dental Mission. Dr. Morris likes to stay active and has continued to play volleyball throughout the years on club teams in college and co-ed recreational leagues with friends. She also enjoys Crossfit, being outside or mountain biking.
Dr. Morris is a huge fan of Husky sports, as well as the Mariners and the Seahawks. She resides in the Richmond Beach area of Shoreline with her husband, Roy, her daughter, Piper, and her West Highland terrier, Conan McRumple.
