Kristen Forster, DDS

 

Dr. Kristen was born and raised in Mott, ND. She attended and graduated St. Vincent’s Catholic Grade School followed by Mott Lincoln High School with a 4.0 GPA. Dr. Kristen graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Mary with a Bachelor of Science Degree with a major in biology and minor in chemistry.  Through her years of education and training at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry she achieved the degree of Doctorate of Dental Surgery. She has taken additional training in the 2 year Mercer Mastery Program.

She is active in her profession by serving as the President of the West Slope District Dental Society, and member of the American Dental Association, North Dakota Dental Association, and Academy of General Dentistry. She donates her services to the organization of Donated Dental Services of North Dakota to provide quality care for the underserved and disadvantaged. She partners with the Head Start Program to provide education and dental care to families in the program.  She is continually continuing her education to provide the best service to all her patients.  She goes to local, state, and national dental meetings.  She has attended National American Dental Association meeting in Las Vegas and the Chicago Dental Society Mid-Winter Meeting.  She also attends the West Slope Annual Convention.  She takes Ethics, CPR, and Infection Control courses. 

Dr. Kristen chose to pursue her career in Dentistry because her mother is a registered nurse.  She wanted to be like her mother and help people within the health care field.  She knew she would be able to best serve the small town and rural areas in Western North Dakota by going into dentistry.

Dr. Kristen returned to Mott employed with Dr. Gjerstad’s Dental Clinic. She started her practice, Apollonia Dental, in January 2007 after she purchased the offices of Dr. Gjerstad and Dr. Stromsborg. Dr. Kristen continues to care for clients at both office locations in Mott and Dickinson. 

Dr. Kristen has served in the past as a volunteer Catholic Youth Organization instructor for St. Vincent's Catholic Parish and dance coach for the local girls dance team. Currently she is a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Parish and is the 7th grade youth ministry instructor.  Her personal interests include running, golfing, dancing, traveling, and cheering for her favorite sports teams the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Tigers.

Her biggest love is her family.  Her husband, Seth, grew up just outside of Richardton on a ranch where the family raised registered red Angus cattle.  After graduating from Richardton-Taylor High School, he attended Dickinson State University on a football scholarship and played 4 years for the Blue Hawks.  He works in the oil Industry.

Jack is in the 6th grade.  He enjoys playing percussion in the school band and being on the football and basketball teams.  His biggest passion is hunting and fishing.  This year, he shot his first deer!  He has also enjoyed many pheasant hunting trips with family and friends.

My babies, Carter and Anastasia are only 14 months apart.  Carter was born November of 2104 and Anastasia January 2016.  They keep me busy when I’m not at work.  Carter loves animals, especially the cattle and horses at Grandpa Forster’s ranch.  He enjoys being outdoors and it’s a struggle to get him back inside.  Anastasia is busy trying to keep up with her big brother, Carter.  She crawls after him and will soon be walking too!

As a family, we enjoy attending sporting events to cheer on the Mott-Regent Wildfire, Richardton-Taylor Raiders and the Dickinson State University Blue Hawks.  They enjoy time at Lake Tschida, going swimming at the local pool, attending community events such as Frist on First, county fairs and parades, church festivals, visiting family and going to brandings.
