Meet Dr. Kristin Newsom
Dr. Kristin Newsom is a 2005 graduate of University of the Pacific Dental School in San Francisco, CA. The doctor and her family have lived in San Luis Obispo County since 2007. After achieving her Bachelors degree in Biochemistry from UC San Diego, the doctor went on to pursue her dental degree at UOP. Knowing her love of children, she decided to specialize and did a residency in Pediatric Dentistry and received a Masters in Oral Health at the University of Illinois in Chicago where they lived for 2 years. Having grown up in Visalia and visiting the area every summer, she and her husband decided to move to the beautiful Central Coast where her in-laws have lived for the past 21 years, to be closer to family. Dr. Newsom is married to Sean Newsom and they have 4 beautiful children, Wyatt, Scarlett and Violette, and baby Sawyer. She enjoys spending time with her children and if there’s any extra time, traveling and playing tennis. She has practiced locally, in San Luis Obispo, for the past 8 years.
Precision and patient comfort is a prerequisite to Dr. Newsom's work quality. Being a Mom herself, she understands the needs of kids and their parents. She believes in conservative dentistry, tailored to each child’s individual case. She is always seeking new knowledge and ways to improve her practice of pediatric dentistry
