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.
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!

I thought I had good work done to my teeth, until I met Dr.Hapney. She had a vision of what my smile would be and I couldn't be happier with the results. We've all heard about those things in life we shouldn't skimp on, and your smile is near the top of that list. Thank you, Kristina.
I called hoping for a last minute appointment and Savannah got me worked with no problem. The entire visit better then I expected. The whole staff was helpful and offered solutions to dental needs I’d been living with for many years. I will definitely be back for future needs. Thank you Savannah!
Thanks to Dr. Hapney and her professional staff, I had all the confidence in my smile when I said 'I do.' She gave great advice – recommending braces and teeth whitening to obtain the perfect smile. The results were amazing. Dr. Hapney's excellent dental care and knowledge made our wedding day as perfect as our smile.
Awesome awesome service . These ladies sincerely treats you like family. I would definitely recommend this dental office to anyone in the Greenville area. Cherly really took good care of me. She explained everything to a T. Huge shout-out to her and also Kristina the DMD for referring me to her office.
