Kristen LaBianca Langworthy, DDS
I was born and raised in Fuquay Varina and am excited to be back in my hometown practicing dentistry. After graduating from Fuquay Varina High School in 2006, I attended college at East Carolina University. I graduated summa cum laude from ECU in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science in health education and promotion and received an Honorary Bachelor of Fine Arts in musical theatre. I went on to attend the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry where I graduated with honors in 2014. My senior year, I was awarded the Monte G. Miska award for excellence in prosthodontics, the aesthetic restoration and replacement of teeth. I was also inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honorary Dental Society for demonstrating scholarship, clinical ability, exemplary traits of character and potential qualities for future professional growth and attainment. After graduating from dental school, I practiced in Goldsboro, NC, for 3.5 years before returning to Fuquay. I love interacting with and building personal relationships with patients, while working with my hands to create and improve the beauty, health and confidence of others. I love to see the transformation that a new smile can bring to someone. I have come to realize that many people have dental anxiety or fears. I work hard to help my patients overcome previous negative experiences by listening to their concerns, thoroughly explaining procedures, answering questions and providing high quality and gentle care in a safe and relaxed environment.Dentistry is always changing with updated technology and treatments. I pursue continuing education courses that allow me to stay current and proficient with state-of- the-art technology and continuously provide high-quality dental care in a professional and caring manner. I have completed additional training in Implant dentistry, Invisalign® clear aligners and CEREC same-day crowns.I met my husband, Brandon, in 2008, and we got married in 2014. We recently became parents of a beautiful baby girl, Braelyn, in September 2017. We are also parents to 2 rescue dogs, Jax and Maggie, and 2 rescue cats, Fiyero and Asher. They have a lot of energy and work together to keep our lives fun and exciting. Spending time with family and friends is my priority outside of work; however, I also try to find outlets for my passion for music and singing.Professional Memberships:
