Chrissy RDH

Chrissy is a registered Dental Hygienist and graduate of Ferris State University. She has always had a passion for dentistry and enjoys working with people and building relationships. Because she has been caring for her patients for more than 20 years, they feel more like family to her. She loves meeting new patients too, especially those who are very nervous or have a fear of the dentist. This challenges her and makes it her goal to make them comfortable and give them a great dental experience.

Her favorite part of dentistry is to see a patient have a smile makeover. She feels it’s truly incredible to see someone who once was embarrassed to smile, smile so big. She has seen how giving someone a smile can change their life. She says that she feels so lucky to be a part of Falcon Dental group. She loves what she does and who she works with. When she’s not working she enjoys spending time with her family, her husband Jimmy of 18 years and their two boys Jack and Nick. Their time together is usually spent on a basketball court or a baseball field, but she says that she wouldn’t change it for anything in the world.
