About Dr. Alexandra Cristescu
A wonderful experience with a kind dentist as a teenager served as the catalyst for Dr. Alexandra Cristescu to pursue a career in the field of dentistry. After finishing high school, she became a hygienist and, after five years, received her DDS to change the lives of others in a major way.
Along with the rest of the office team, Dr. Cristescu shares her passion for helping others by making herself available to her patients and sharing her passion for gentle care and long-lasting oral health.

Meet The Team
I was born in Indonesia and moved to Yakima, WA at the age of 9. I am tri-lingual in Chinese/Vietnamese.I have a business degree from Yakima Valley Community College.
My husband Mark and I have three beautiful children, 7 year old Amyah, 6 year old Markus, and 8 months old Maddox. They keep us very busy and bring joy to our lives. We love to travel and spend time outdoors. My hobbies are cooking, going to the movies and spending time with family and friends. I started my dental career in pediatric dentistry and loved working with children. I now enjoy my new dental family at Eastside Family Dentistry an look forward to building relationships with our patients and their families.
I look forward to meeting you!
I’m a Boise, Idaho native and attended Boise State University pursing a profession in the health field. I moved from Boise up here to Washington in 2009 to be closer to family and start my career.
I have an extensive background working for a third-party administrator handling different Taft Hartley trusts (insurance) which encompassed coding, claim inquiry, and processing. So insurance has always come easy to me. I felt like something had been missing in my career, so I sought advice and have chosen this path with Dr. Cristescu. I enjoy working with this team because they all stride to provide everyone with the tools to perform at their best. I feel fortunate to work along-side Dr. Cristescu because they truly seek out the best care for the patient. They are also extremely dynamic in supporting our front office staff when needed which is rare to find. To have an office so close-knit has provided comfort for my success to call this place my second home.
I currently reside in Kirkland, WA. I have a husband and a 3 year old son named Paxton. We enjoy playing and watching all sports (especially the SEAHAWKS), taking walks, driving, and spending time together near the water.
Kristi began assisting us at the office while she was still attending college in 1990. The experience here inspired her, and Kristi completed a college program to become a dental hygienist in 1995. She has worked at Eastside Family Dentistry ever since! As the doctor’s senior hygienist, Kristi performs expanded restorative responsibilities and has accumulated 15 years of continuing education experience in all aspects of dentistry.
Kristi appreciates the standard of quality work provided by Dr. Cristescu and our staff and is highly committed to great dentistry and the empathy that makes each patient feel truly cared for. She values our staff members who treat each other with respect and pass the benefits of that ethic on to our patients. She considers Dr. Cristescu’s practice a rewarding and fun place to work!
In her free time, Kristi likes camping, boating and spending quality time with family and friends.
I graduated from a 6 year School of Dentistry in Bucharest, Romania and moved to Washington in 2014.
I enjoy being able to improve someone’s appearance and make them feel more confident when they smile, being able to take pain away and make patients feel better and relieved after they visit our office. While I enjoy being a dental assistant I am planning to apply to UW School of Dentistry in the future.
In my spare time I enjoy camping, hiking and traveling with my husband.
I started working at Eastside Family Dentistry in 2014 and it has been a blessing to be part of a compassionate , highly talented and fun team. I was a nurse assistant for many years before discovering my passion for dentistry. I love getting to know our patients and helping them achieve optimal oral health and overall wellness.
When I am not at work I enjoy cooking, baking, camping and going fishing with my husband Mario all over Pacific Northwest.
