Meet Dr. Kristina Hapney
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 office is by far superior than any other in the upstate. Dr. King and my dental hygienist, Cheryl Brown, were exceptionally skilled and took their time with me. Spa like atmosphere. I will keep driving from Anderson to Simpsonville to get such wonderful dental care.
Being a denture wearer for quite a few years, this is the first set that truly is custom fit. I have been wearing this new set over a month and the look and feel is amazing! The time taken for setting and adjusting the teeth was very involved. The result of the custom set Dr. Hapney created, the time taken and the comfort is unbelievable. This is the closest to my own teeth I have ever experienced. Now I put them in in the morning and they are not removed until bed time. Thank you to all who made this happen. I am one very happy patient.
Finally... a dentist I love! I am incredibly thankful for Dr. Hapney and Five Forks Dental Care! I appreciate all their attention to detail and personal care. I feel like family! I recently received veneers and couldn't be more pleased, after spending 30 years frustrated with my stained, spaced, spotted teeth! I can't stop smiling!
