Meet Dr. Kristine Aadland
Hi! I’m Dr. Kris, your Vancouver family dentist and founder of Aadland Dental. I feel incredibly grateful to serve my hometown and walk alongside others to bring their best smiles to life. I’m passionate about connecting with patients on a personal level, and can empathize with anyone who fears going to the dentist. Believe it or not, that used to be me! By establishing a practice where dental appointments feel like a relaxing and rewarding spa day for your smile, I’m here to change that.
Growing up in Vancouver, Washington, my parents owned a bridge building company and I used to run heavy equipment (the big CAT machines!). This ignited my love for business, building, and working with my hands, which later translated into a surprising passion for crafting strong, brilliant smiles. I graduated from Oregon Health and Science University in 2006 as a Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry with Clinical Honors, and naturally made my way back to Vancouver to perfect my craft as an associate dentist. In 2009, my dream of starting my own small business finally came to fruition and Aadland Dental was born. Today, there’s nothing I enjoy more than turning dental visits into something truly comfortable, approachable, and memorable for my local community. Seeing patients fall in love with their new teeth and find the freedom to share their smiles again is what my work thrives on. In addition to my formal education, I’m passionate about embracing a life of continued education, sharing my knowledge as a Mentor for CEREC doctors, and staying on the forefront of the newest advancements in dental technology.
As a native of the Pacific Northwest, I enjoy soaking up Vancouvers’s rich outdoor beauty whenever I can. Whether that’s skiing down the sky high mountains of my home state, being on the water, running, or biking, I love to live life to the fullest!
Aadland Dental is made up of go-getters, educators, and encouragers who are dedicated to your smile every day. Whether it’s keeping families in the loop with nifty dental knowledge, teaming up to reach your smile goals, or sharing a laugh together, our approach to care is guided by one simple philosophy: treat others the way we would want to be treated.
