Board Certified Orthodontist

According to The American Board of Orthodontics, a board certified orthodontist is an orthodontist who has voluntarily gone through hundreds of additional hours of preparation to demonstrate their judgment, skills, and knowledge required for providing the highest level of patient care. Only 1 out of 3 orthodontists are board certified. This preparation is completed following a 2 year orthodontic residency and dental school.

The Time Will Be Right

Different people are ready for braces at different times. Sometimes the best thing is to wait for the most effective results. With 8,000+ cases under his belt, Dr. C knows!

"I love how Dr Christenson is careful about pulling the trigger on recommending orthodontia. He consults with his patients to make sure that the patient's objectives are met. His staff is friendly and we have enjoyed the experience."
- Kathryn M in Chesapeake, VA

We Invest in Education

Dr. Christenson, Dr. Oakley, and their team participate in annual continuing education. The team travels to national and regional orthodontic meetings every year where they learn about new technology and treatment options. Dr. C's & Dr. Oakley's commitment to education goes beyond these meetings, they participate in several monthly orthodontic study groups with neighboring dentists and orthodontists.

In their words...


Hear what our patients have to say about us!

  • As a teenager, my son saw Dr. Christenson for orthodontics. As his mother, I have been seen by Dr. Christenson for braces for the past 5 years. I cannot say enough about Dr. Christenson and his amazing staff. Dr. Christenson is simply the best and his entire staff is caring and interested in each patient. I am always treated like a rock star in their office. I cannot recommend Dr. Christenson and his staff highly enough!!
