Christina Vosburgh

Treatment Coordinator

My name is Christina and have been in the dental field since 2015. What I enjoy the most about my job is seeing all of our patients! I wouldn’t be able to do what I love, without them. It’s easy to wear a smile to work every day when you really genuinely love what you do!

When I’m not at work, my husband and I love to go to the desert or go to dog beach with our fur baby, who always keeps us busy.
