Meet The Doctors

Robert M. Christ, DMD, FAGD, FICOI

Dr. Robert ChristDr. Christ has provided professional and value-based dentistry for over 30 years. While he prides himself on performing the treatments necessary to give you a healthy and beautiful smile, he equally strives to cultivate long-lasting relationships based on trust that his patients have come to appreciate.

Dr. Christ believes that there is not a day in the practice of dentistry where he fails to see the real positive effects of a patient’s quality of life being improved just by virtue of having a healthy radiant smile.

Today’s technology has equally given us the means and methods needed to create gorgeous smiles and altered the very idea of cosmetic dentistry: having a healthy smile is no longer a sign of vanity, but a reflection of the patient’s inner health that reveals their true self. One need no longer have to settle for a smile that they’re unhappy with, but can instead be given more confidence and improved self-esteem with a healthy grin.

Every patient is unique, and so we labor tirelessly to listen to and meet your particular needs while providing you the finest in optimal dental care. This includes educating our patients, and Dr. Christ and his staff will make sure that their patients fully understand every aspect of the procedures we conduct. Further, education is given to ensure patients have the necessary knowledge to keep their mouths healthy and looking fantastic for years to come. It’s your smile, and so we take extra care and consideration with your needs as well as informing you of all aspects and options so that you can make informed decisions about your oral health. Our goal is your satisfaction, and we work hard so that every patient leaves our office excited and overjoyed about the improvements in their smile.
