What Our Clients Say About Us

    Excellent work, professional, friendly! Dr. Christian and staff are excellent! They are always friendly and make you feel comfortable - even during the not-so-fun procedures! I appreciate Dr. Christian's conservative point of view - if something is not broken, but slightly amiss - she treats with care and watches the issue diligently. She doesn't rush in to do all the most complicated (& expensive) procedures right away. She applies her knowledge and experience with wisdom. I trust her judgement. She has provided fantastic care to me and my family for many years now. I highly recommend Dr. Christian and her staff!"

    Overall experience: Outstanding Dr. Christian is gentle, caring, top notch. . . and to top it off- genuinely explained steps of the procedures as she was going- this had not been my experience of recent years (explain some things- yes- but, not in the same way). I have had regular, preventative dental care my whole life. I was sad to have left my then-current dentist, but needed to find a new practice who was open on a particular weekday. So, I called around and found Dr. Christian's office. Wow! What had I been missing! Seriously. My old dental practice was great. To have found this GEM of a practice is truly wonderful. DON'T EVER RETIRE Ha Ha :-) No matter where you live- This office is WORTH THE DRIVE! Already made an appointment for another family member! :-)"

    I was referred by a colleague. It is difficult to find a good dentist who can work around my schedule. My schedule is not flexible since I work I healthcare. The staff seems to understand people's hectic schedules. Other places were giving me a 3-5 month wait time. First of all, when you call, you speak to a person and do not wait. The staff is knowledgeable. I have to have a procedure done and the front desk staff already had an estimate based on my insurance plan. I will not hesitate to refer others to this practice and certainly look forward to receiving my care here in the years to come."
