Dr. Oakley Orthodontist

Dr. Oakley is excited to join her father’s orthodontic practice.

Designing and creating smiles is the perfect application of her engineering background that enables her to have a positive impact on her patients and the community.

Tracy Lab Technician

I have been in orthodontics since May 1988. This is the only job I’ve ever had! I love working in the lab and seeing the beautiful smiles we create from start to finish. I have been married to Chris for almost 25 years. I enjoy spending time with my three kids and dog. We love to travel, watch sports, art, gardening, and coffee.

Sherrie Financial Coordinator

I have been a part of Christenson Family Orthodontics, on and off, since 2008. As a military spouse, I have had the opportunity to live in several different places, but I consider Chesapeake to be my “home.” My husband and I have three wonderful children. I love watching my son play baseball, camping, and finding a good deal at the thrift store. My favorite part of orthodontics is seeing how a beautiful smile can change the way someone feels about themself.

Taylor Scheduling Coordinator

Ok, so you already know I’m amazing! But what you may not know about me is that aside from being a dental assistant, I own The Cleaning Fairy LLC, a residential cleaning company servicing all of Hampton Roads. I have three amazing children (not as amazing as me yet, but close)! My favorite thing to do is spend time with my babies whenever I can. I also enjoy spending time with my grandmother, who gives me so much wisdom and guidance throughout life. My favorite color is and always has been pink, and I am a fanatic for anything Paris themed. I love to eat anything with pasta, and I am a seafood fanatic as well!

Toni Lead Orthodontic Assistant

I love having movie marathons with my hubby and furbaby. Re-watching Friends and going to themed trivia nights make me happy. I cannot function without my coffee and sushi is my favorite meal, right next to my Mom’s Italian home cooking. I love creating artwork such as jewelry, doing floral arrangements for my up and coming business, and interior design. I love talking with people, and having every patient leave with a smile is my daily goal!

Jenny Orthodontic Assistant

Hello all, my name is Jenny, and I am one of your orthodontic assistants at Christenson Family Orthodontics! I grew an interest in the dental field years back, after my first year of college and am now passionate and dedicated to what I do. Currently, I am a student at ODU, in hopes to further my career in this field, as I am personally committed to better oral health care and improve the confidence of others through their smiles.

In my free time, I enjoy being in the kitchen and cooking for my family and friends. I also enjoy traveling with my husband, and exploring different places to see what the world has to offer! Working hard and playing even harder is the motto I live by each day!

Sarah Orthodontic Assistant

I love spending time with my little boy and my husband. We have a black poodle named Coal and a crazy cat named JackJack. We enjoy trips to the lake for a day of fishing. Sushi and steak are the way to my heart, and I never say “no” to cheesecake. I recently started my own custom T-shirt business; Purposely Made Creations. Originally from Texas, I moved here on naval orders with my family, and we currently live in Suffolk. I have been an orthodontic assistant for 3 years, and I enjoy what I do with a passion.

Raven Orthodontic Assistant

Hi! I’m Raven. Food is life. I sometimes tell people I was put on this Earth only to eat Alfredo. I need coffee to function as an adult. Actually, I need creamer with a shot of coffee… I love going to concerts, even if I have to go alone. Hanging out with friends and binge watching anything on Netflix is what I do on a regular basis. This is my first position in the orthodontic field and helping patients love their smile and feel good about themselves is so fulfilling.
