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."

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!!
Dr. Christenson and his office staff are amazing! They know me by name when I walk in and they are always smiling and laughing!
I highly recommend Dr. Christenson and staff! Great place! I’m glad to finally have my braces off but I’m sure I will be back in a few years with my kids! Thank you for my smile!!
Dr Christenson and the entire staff are wonderful! The entire process has been easy as we were guided every step of the way. Dr Christianson is funny and kind and never to busy to answer a question for mom or the kid :). I would highly recommend Christianson Orthodontics!
Great atmosphere, cool staff, they have given me the smile that I wanted!
