Christine Chavez, DMD
Arizona School of Dentistry
I moved to Arizona from Northridge, California 10 years ago in order to pursue my dental education. I was looking for a fun and creative way to help people through my work and dentistry felt like a great way to do that. From the start of my career, I’ve always operated with the professional philosophy that all of my patients deserve to be treated like family.
As a mother, I know that it can be scary for young kids to visit the dentist and I love taking the time to help them feel at ease in my dental chair. From allowing them to look at my own teeth to teaching them how to turn on my light, I like making them feel as though they’re a part of the process because that’s the kind of comfort, reassurance, and fun that we all need in those moments.
When I’m not at work, my husband Eric, son Caleb and I make a point of sitting down to technology-free dinners as a family. I’m also a bit of a pastry chef and I dabble in wedding planning, as well.
