Krystal Erekson - RDA
I have been working in the dental field since 2011. I have had the pleasure of working with adults & children in my career. In that time, I’ve come to realize that I enjoy working with kids and love making them feel at home while visiting our office. Originally I grew up in Wimberley, Texas. Currently reside here in the lovely San Antonio, Texas with my Husband Brandon with our two kiddos Alexis and Shaidon. In my free time I enjoy working out, crafting, and I love to paint! My favorite color is green, pizza would have to be my favorite food. Maybe I’m a Ninja Turtle?!? I look forward to meeting you and your little ones!
