The Dentists

Dr. Kristine Aadland, D.M.D.

Dr. Kristine Aadland, D.M.D.

Dr. Kristine Aadland has an energy and excitement for life that is seen by all who have met her. Born and raised in Vancouver, Washington, Dr. Aadland completed her undergraduate work at Oregon State University, and subsequently went to Oregon Health Sciences University for dental school. In 2006 she graduated with Clinical Honors and returned to her hometown to start practicing as an employee. Her dream was always to have her own practice and in 2009, when many practices were struggling, she built out her dream practice. She chose to differentiate herself in a competitive marketplace by creating a beautiful, spa-like dental office that utilized technology to make her better and more efficient. The cornerstone of this technology was Sirona’s CEREC and Gaileos products. In 2011, the Vancouver Community awarded her the distinction of “Accomplished and Under 40 Class”. Dr. Aadland has been nominated by the Vancouver Business Journal as fastest growing businesses in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2015.

Dr. Aadland’s success is not by accident. She is constantly pushing the limits of CEREC technology with bridges, implants, orthodontics and her same day smile makeovers. This has all been made possible by the extensive continuing education that she does each year. As a Mentor for CEREC doctors, the forum and Scottsdale facility have also created a place for her to grow and refine her skills. Dr. Aadland travels extensively now for CEREC trainings and ACCEPT courses. Her passion and energy for CEREC is contagious.

Dr. Aadland has been named by Portland Monthly magazine as a “Top Dentist” multiple times by her peers. Her professional affiliations include the ADA, WSDA, AGD, and serves as a Delegate for WSDA.


Dr. Aadland started her career path in high school, downtown Portland, at St. Mary's Academy where they fostered her love for science and giving back to the community. Although her path during college had her traveling from Colorado, to Tacoma, and even around the world on a ship, eventually she chose orange and black as her alum colors from Oregon State University. Dental school brought her back closer to home at Oregon Health Science University where she graduated in 2006 with clincial honors. Today she is a member of many local organizations including: Vancouver Chamber of Commerce, Hazel Dell Business Association, Rotary, American Dental Association, Clark County Dental Society, Spear Study Club, Seattle Study Club, and is striving toward her fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry.
