About Your Dentist
Christine Kerrigan, DMD
"Teeth are always in style" - Dr. Seuss
"To provide comprehensive dental care of exceptional quality to patients in a calm, comfortable environment. I am committed to caring for my patients with the same empathy, good humor, and attention to detail that I would want for a member of my own family. I look forward to building rich and rewarding relationships with my patients so I can be an effective, lifelong steward of their oral health. By fostering mutual trust, stressing careful preventative care and providing hygienic education, I believe I can create the conditions most conducive to my patients' long-term success at maintaining a dazzling, healthy smile. I want each of my patients to enjoy the best oral health of his or her life."

"I spent the summer before dental school on a dental mission trip to Panama. This mission not only reinforced my career choice, but it also opened my eyes to learn first-hand how many people in other parts of the world do not have the same opportunities for maintaining oral health. I look forward to incorporating volunteerism into my dental practice both here in the United States and overseas. I have seen firsthand how dental professionals can positively impact a community when they combine their efforts to improve the quality of life for people who would otherwise have no recourse to proper dental care – and I want this office to join in that truly noble pursuit."
