Meet Kristen Gibilisco DMD, FICIOI
Dr. Kristen Gibilisco (former Bonkowski) is passionate in restoring a patient's confidence in their smile. Her approach is with compassion and understanding. She graduated from Westfield High School and completed her undergraduate training at Northeastern University, Boston in 2009. Dr. Kristen received her Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) degree from the Dental College of Georgia at Augusta University (formerly known as Medical College of Georgia) in May 2014. Upon graduation, she earned the Quintessence award for clinical excellence and patient centered care. She completed a one-year residency program at Augusta University in July 2015 with advanced training in general dentistry, including IV sedation, implant placement, sinus lifts, surgical extractions including wisdom teeth and bone grafting techniques. She is dedicated to learning new technology to make dental visits easier on her patients, such as the TRIOS scanning (instead of taking molds) and 3D CBCT imaging. Her new interest is in Botox as a therapeutic treatment in TMJ and orofacial pain, as well as wrinkle prevention and esthetics.
She stays active in organized dentistry through her memberships in American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), and Vermont Dental Society (VDS). She earned the fellowship award in International College of Implantologists (ICOI) in February 2016 and will be receiving her fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) this upcoming June in Orlando, FL. Her future goals include offering spa dentistry to her patients which includes warm neck wraps and calming meditation music.
