Dr. Kirsten Trandem

A native of Minnesota, Dr. Trandem completed her orthodontic training at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Stony Brook under the guidance of Dr. Richard Faber.

Dr. Trandem worked at Pall Corporation prior to entering dental school where she applied her materials science expertise to develop filters that were used in medical, defense, environmental, and manufacturing applications. Her work there resulted in several patent considerations. She also worked for 3M as a chemist and has published research during her time at the University of California and Brookhaven National Laboratory.

A former intercollegiate runner for St. Olaf College, Dr. Trandem still enjoys running today in addition to biking, and hiking together with her husband and daughter. She is happy to be living in one of her favorite cities, Austin, working for Carus and looks forward to seeing her patients’ look of satisfaction when their braces are removed.
