Christine - Registered Dental Assistant


Christine decided to study dental assisting in 2003. She chose this profession because her son had a very difficult time with dental appointments.

"I had positive and negative experiences during his appointments, dependent on the staff," Christine says. "I decided that I wanted to be one of those people who had a positive impact on my son’s outlook on going to the dentist." Christine graduated from UEI, San Diego, in April of 2004.

Over the last 12 years of learning and exploring the world of dentistry, Christine still finds that her favorite part is working with our patients. "It has been a pleasure to assist with patients’ care while trying to understand their needs and concerns," Christine says. "It is especially rewarding knowing that our patients place such a high amount of trust in me."

Everyday, Christine drives out to Encinitas from Fallbrook to be a part of the Delicate Dental Team. "Work is pleasure when I get to go to an office that is on the top of all the new technologies," she says.

When Christine is away from work, she enjoys spending time with her husband, her three children, and her two dogs. She also helps seniors in my area.

On some weekends, Christine gets to work with the military reservists to be sure they are dentally prepared if deployment calls. In her spare time, Christine is an avid quilter. She and her husband also enjoy hiking, camping, and cooking.
