Meet Dr. Kristina Hapney, DMD
Dr. Hapney realized early on how important a smile is for confidence and how it impacts the way others see you after having braces as a teen. Upon graduating high school, she left Ohio where she grew up, and moved to Greenville, PA to attend Thiel College. She earned a B.A. in Chemistry and completed the pre-dental program in only three years while working as a dental assistant. She was blessed to be selected as an international Rotary Ambassador and was able to study Dental Technology and learn to do dental lab work while spending a year abroad in Cardiff, Wales. She attended the University of Louisville School of Dentistry where she earned her DMD degree. She was fortunate to receive many awards for her research in cleft palate development in which she won 3rd place in the nation. She and her husband moved to Simpsonville, SC in 2005 and she founded Five Forks Dental Care, Inc.
Dr. Hapney continues to devote her career to helping individuals achieve the smile of their dreams and maintain excellent oral health. She provides unparallelled patient care in the areas of cosmetic, restorative and implant dentistry but patients know her for her ability to listen and translate their desires and concerns into smiles that are as functional as they are attractive. Her professional goal is to offer her patients dentistry of the highest expertise and integrity through personal dedication, continuous education and use of the very best materials and advanced techniques. Dr. Hapney volunteers at Greenville Free Medical Clinic which provides free care to local people in need and is a participating dentist in the Give Back A Smile program with the AACD Foundation through which she helps to provide cosmetic dentistry to survivors of domestic abuse.
Dr. Hapney attends New Spring Church in Greenville, SC. She is blessed to have a daughter, Eleni Sue. In Dr. Hapney's spare time, she enjoys traveling, photography, swimming, learning about other cultures, playing with her Yorkie and spending time with her family and friends.
This place is AH-MAZING! For the moment you walk in, they provide a soothing, freindly atmosphere...and all of the staff is welcoming! Who knew you could get a paraffin treatment while getting your teeth cleaned- loved it!! What a great extra perk!
Would definitely recommend this business. Hands down 5 stars easily! :)
Best place for our family!!! Kind and patient staff. My children feel so at home and not a bit nervous about visiting the dentist. Dr. Hapney is awesome!
By far the best dentist experience I've ever had. The staff is friendly, helpful, and polite. Dr. Hapney and her assistants are always willing to take the time to explain the procedures and put you at ease. I was actually shocked because my previous dentist rushed in and out of rooms, yet she puts a lot of effort into making her patients feel important and like their time matters. Not only that, but having a fear of dentists myself, I can't say how appreciative I am of their understanding and stress-free, pain-free management.
I originally found Five Forks Dental due to them being open on a Saturday when my uncle needed an emergency appointment. After some internet searching, I found the office here on Google. They fit him in and were able to fix his problem the same day. I made an appointment to visit the following week due to severe pain in my own tooth which had been progressively getting worse. I needed to have the root-canal and permanent crown placing on a time-constraint due to living abroad and only being in-town for the holidays. Understanding my situation and the pain I was in, she acted fast and was able to get my root canal scheduled with the endodontist (and I have to say, the endodontist they refer to is very good as well!) as well as my crown with incredible speed.
The office itself is beautiful, clean, and relaxing. I haven't taken advantage of their esthetician services yet, but I plan to when I have the time. I will definitely continue to be a patient at Five Forks Dental for any future dental work I may need. This is definitely worth the five-star rating.
Quick, efficient, and at the top of their game.
I got my teeth cleaned on Monday and they took amazing care of me! Shout out to Laura, my fave dental hygienist! All the ladies were spectacular and so sweet. Dr Hapney is so thorough and makes sure you’re fully involved in your dental treatment. LOVE LOVE LOVE, highly recommend. Whoever thought to combine the calming atmosphere of a spa with a dental office is genius.
