Kriston J. Kent, M.D., MPH is a preventative medicine physician & facial plastic surgeon in private practice in Naples, Florida. He is the owner and medical director of The Kent Center for LIFE and Naples Facial Plastic Surgery.

Dr. Kent was born to parents who were both college professors. In addition to their primary occupation, the family also lived on a large cattle farm and grew most of their fruit and vegetables. In 1990, Dr. Kent began private practice in facial plastic surgery in Naples, Florida. Over the next 20 years, Dr. Kent owned and operated Naples Facial Plastic Surgery while helping his wife Charlotte raise their three children.

For all of his adult life, Dr. Kent has been deeply interested in fitness, nutrition, health behaviors, and preventative medicine. However, when his last child left home for college, he decided to embark on a new educational journey with the intent of dramatically altering his medical practice. In 2010, he decided to obtain a Masters in Public Health in Lifestyle Medicine from the prestigious Loma Linda University. This required a six month sabbatical during 2012 where he completed his MPH on campus in Southern California. In 2012, he also completed a rotation at the Institute of Lifestyle Medicine at Harvard and at the Center for Lifestyle Medicine in St. Helena, California. In August, 2012, Dr. Kent returned to Naples to assemble an elite team of professionals who would provide a new model of preventative medicine which is patient centered. This team of professionals includes: a nutritionist, physical fitness/exercise specialists, behavior specialists, and certified health and wellness coaches (in addition to the specialized lifestyle medicine physician). The Kent Center for LIFE (KCL) is the culmination of his vision and KCL began seeing patients in Naples in November 2012.

The Kent Center is already seeing remarkable changes in the health, and the life, of its patients.

In addition to helping each patient individually, The Kent Center is also committed to bringing state of the art, and cutting edge health, wellness, and preventative medicine educational events to Naples. Events have included Beth Frates MD, Lifestyle Medicine physician from the Harvard Institute of Lifestyle Medicine, and a health & wellness coach, who presented a morning workshop entitled “Paving the Path to Optimal Wellness: 6 Habits of Highly Healthy People”. Dr. Frates is a well-known motivational health and wellness educator. She is a graduate of Harvard College and Stanford University School of medicine.

The Kent Center has also coordinated an educational endeavor featuring Todd Whitthorne from the Cooper Clinic in Dallas Texas. Mr. Whitthorne is President and Chief Executive Officer of Cooper Concepts, Inc., he oversees Cooper Wellness™, an in-residence behavior modification program at the world-renowned Cooper Aerobics Center in Dallas.
