Note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Virginia Dental Association has recommended that all dental offices close until April 1st, 2020. Blackstone Family Dentistry will follow those recommendations, and thus we will be closed for everything except emergency care during that time. We can still see patients for emergencies. Email or call the office if you are having pain or swelling, and we will make an appointment for you.
Meet Dr. Kristina Staples
Dr. Kristina Staples, a native of Southside Virginia, spent seven years as Director of Dental Services for a Community Health Center Organization in Virginia, supervising 11 dental offices and their staffs. In 2018 she returned to her home of Blackstone to take over the practice of a retiring dentist and rebrand it as Blackstone Family Dentistry. Watch the video to hear Kristina describe in her own words why she became a dentist and what motivated her to return to Blackstone and become a private practitioner.

Blackstone Family Dentistry has been serving the Blackstone community for over 40 years. The practice was originally founded by Dr. Mark Reitz in 1978. When Dr. Reitz retired in 2018, the practice was purchased by Dr. Staples, who had been serving as the Director of Dental Services for a community health center in Virginia. Dr. Staples retained all of the staff members in the practice and began a modernization process to provide even better service to new and existing patients. That process includes electronic patient records, online bill payment options, easy appointment scheduling, and a new referral program.
