DR. KRISTIN ROBERTSON
Dr. Kristin Robertson received her Bachelor of Science from James Madison University and her Doctor of Dental Surgery from Virginia Commonwealth University. She discovered and fostered her interest in dentistry by working throughout high school and college as a dental assistant for her childhood family dentist. She loved the idea of a “dental home” that allowed the dentist to get to know a patient and family throughout the years.
During her time at VCU, Dr. Robertson volunteered her time with multiple philanthropic organizations, including Mission of Mercy, Give Kids A Smile, and Project Homeless Connect. After dental school, Dr. Robertson worked as a general practitioner in a public health setting with a focus on treating pediatric patients. She realized her true passion for dentistry lied with treating children. After 5 years of living in South Carolina, Dr. Robertson was very excited about her family’s return to Richmond, Virginia, and her joining the team at Sparkle Pediatric Dentistry. She looks forward every day to create lasting relationships with the patients and their families while making a difference through oral health education and comfortable dental treatment.
When she is not in the office, Dr. Robertson enjoys cooking, reading, and spending time with her husband, two children Laurel and Trey, and her dog Toby.

She then went on to receive her Doctor of Dental Surgery from VCU School of Dentistry. After dental school, she attended a two-year General Practice Residency at a local hospital and received extensive training treating patients of all ages and patients with special needs in an operating room setting. When Dr. Steadman is not practicing dentistry, she loves reading, running, and spending time with her husband and dog Peanut.
