Kimberlee Harjula Peterson was born and raised in St George. She attended Georges Valley High School and then attended the University of Southern Maine obtaining an Associate of Science in Business Administration. After moving home, she began working in a local dental office. She loved the field of dentistry and decided to further her education by returning to school earning her degree in Dental Hygiene. She started with Dr. Medina after first getting her license and has recently returned.
“I am excited to be back in the office and am looking forward to seeing new and “old” faces. I like my colleagues–every one is helpful and caring. I think we have a great team. We recently went to a dental conference in Boston and are feeling energized with the classes we took. I am looking forward to taking more classes to expand my depth of knowledge and perhaps provide dental services in an under served population in the near future.”
Kim, her husband, Kyle, and girls Kennedy and Kerrigan live in Rockport. She also has a stepson, Beau, his wife Amy and granddaughter, Ellie who currently live in New Hampshire. She enjoys spending free time with her family and friends. She loves summertime and being close to the ocean.
Kim loves working with people and truly values developing relationships with her patients. She believes in treating not just a mouth but the person behind it. She finds it very rewarding to make people feel comfortable by providing an easy and gentle approach to care. She has been practicing dental hygiene for 16 years. She loves working with children of all ages and seeing them grow from toddlers to adults.
