Dr. Christina Linn
"Dentistry allows me to improve and maintain the oral health of my patients. Research shows how our oral health can positively or negatively affect our overall systemic health. It's important to me to educate and work with my patients as a team. I also enjoy the art of dentistry as well. Improving a person's emotional health and self-esteem by improving their smile, whether it's with a chair side single tooth bonding or a full mouth reconstruction, is deeply satisfying."
Dr. Christina Linn attended the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she was awarded a Bachelor of Arts in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. After graduating from the University of Colorado, Dr. Linn enlisted as a dental technician in the US Navy, where her desire to do more for her patients led her to further her education in dentistry. She subsequently attended Arizona School of Dentistry, where she received her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) Degree.
After dental school, Dr. Linn was commissioned as a Naval Dental Officer and completed a one-year general practice residency at Balboa Naval Medical Center in San Diego. Here she worked closely with other highly trained dentists and specialists, which enabled her to become skilled in the entire scope of general dentistry, from cosmetic to trauma management.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Linn enjoys traveling to the mountains with her husband and two children to hike, fish, and camp.
