Dr. Christine

I'm Dr. Christine

I’m a nurturer, encourager, and an admirer of the awe-inspiring majesty of Creation. I was born to create love and beauty all around me. Nothing brings me more joy than uplifting others and I pour my heart into creating a charming, cozy dental home where you are lovingly cared for.

It is my passion to empower you and your family with the tools for a healthy, beautiful smile for life, free of a lifetime of easily preventable dental problems. And I’m here to show you how.

A creative (through and through; lover of golden retrievers, flowers, pickleball, & giving hugs.

Remember, YOU are a PRECIOUS human being, my friend. You deserve to show up in this world as your best, authentic self. And this world needs your light to shine in it.

Nurture with nature

I believe in the power of connecting with nature to promote wellness and peace. I love adorning our dental home with lots of flowers and plants to bring life and joy into our space. Oftentimes, people walk in asking, "Is this a flower shop?" To me, this means a job well done 🙂

Create a sacred space

I want your spirit to be lifted as you enter this safe space and enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy every time you visit us. We also give you a warm lavender-infused towel at the end of your visit.


I understand that most people don't enjoy coming to the dentist so I created for you a comfy and cozy dental home to comfort your dental fears.

Family friendly

I want the whole family to feel right at home. We have a Kid's Movie & Playroom with Play Stations and toys so that your kids learn that the dentist is a fun place, not a scary one.

Spark joy

I want you to feel joy when you’re in this space made just for you. I choose and place every piece of art and decor with you in mind.

"My parents say I came into this world wearing a huge smile on my face..."

I grew up in a small town in northern Canada, where it snowed for eight months out of the year. But it was amazing to grow up in such a close community of genuine, good people.

Before every basketball game, my dad would tell me, “Work hard and have fun.” I’ve carried this philosophy with me ever since. I believe in working extremely hard to accomplish your dreams, but to have fun doing it. 

I wake up every day excited to come to work because I absolutely love what I do. I get to make people smile and laugh every day, while transforming their smiles.

My wife calls me Happy Feet because I love to dance. You can find me boogieing down the halls of Thrive to my favorite tunes.

I also enjoy creating entertaining Youtube and Tik Tok videos to answer your dental questions and giving you a behind-the-scenes look into our world.

Dreamer, go-getter; lover of chocolate chip cookies, enthusiast of having great conversion over a good meal with family & friends.

Our Thrive patients are seekers of what is good, and honest, and lovely, and pure, with a desire for deep connection.

 We are pursuers of what is good, and honest, and lovely, and pure. And we’re here to serve you with our whole heart. We understand the importance of finding a dentist that you can trust with your family and your life.

Does this sound like you?
