Dr. Kristine Trontz is so excited to be returning to New England and joining Haas Dental Associates. Dr. Trontz grew up in Nashua, New Hampshire and attended Bishop Guertin High School in Nashua. She graduated from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, Massachusetts with high distinction, where she received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Biotechnology with minors in Chemistry and Spanish. Dr. Trontz matriculated at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry and received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. During her time at the University of Maryland, she was awarded membership into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society, Gorgas Odonatological Honor Society, and Gamma Pi Delta Prosthodontic Honor Society. Following graduation, Dr. Trontz completed her specialty pediatric dentistry training at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. There she managed dental trauma and infections, treated patients with a variety of special health care needs, and worked with various specialists in the dental field. Dr. Trontz is trained in conscious and complete sedation dentistry, and along with Dr. Jim is one of only a few pediatric dentists in New Hampshire that provides this service to children. Dr. Trontz is board certified in pediatric dentistry and is a member of the American Dental Association, American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, New Hampshire Dental Society, and the New Hampshire Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
Dr. Trontz believes that the lifelong relationships forged with patients is one of the greatest aspects of pediatric dentistry and sees the importance of being involved in the community. Dr. Trontz has traveled to Honduras as part of the CURE International program. She provided dental care to adolescents and adults, as well as oral hygiene instruction to local school children. She also provided dental services to the community in Baltimore through programs such as Smiles for Success and Mission of Mercy as well as local health fairs in Cincinnati. She is looking forward to volunteering and forming those community ties in New Hampshire.
Outside the office, Dr. Trontz enjoys running and participating in marathons around the US. She also enjoys international travel, particularly to Brazil, which she has visited frequently since she was a child.
