Orthodontist Dr. Steven Kristo

In 1988, I joined my father, Dr. Andrew Kristo, at Kristo Orthodontics, our family-owned practice since 1959. Since then, I have continued to grow and expand my special kind of orthodontic practice into several surrounding communities, including Amery, Baldwin, Black River Falls, Bloomer, Chippewa Falls, Menomonie, New Richmond, Rice Lake, Mondovi, and Stanley. I’m really passionate about making Kristo the best at everything we do from a clinical standpoint, as well as from a personal one. We focus on helping kids from all social dynamics improve their lives by creating a nicer, healthier smiles: life changing smiles. We truly love seeing the remarkable changes in their smiles that impact them profoundly throughout their entire lives. Taking care of our patients is the main reason we’re here, and we keep their needs and goals in the highest regard. That’s the key to our success, and why so many of our patients leave our office smiling.


I graduated from the Minnesota School of Dentistry with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery, followed by a Master of Science degree and a specialty Certificate in Orthodontics in 1988. Utilizing the most advanced orthodontic techniques is important to me because of the benefits it offers to our patients. I strive to offer the best and operate a progressive office because I’m passionate about staying on top of the latest trends in the industry. It’s all about making sure the patients get the best orthodontic care available.
