Christine's picture



Christine has been in dentistry for 26 years. She began her career in a practice in Redding and also worked at an orthodontic office there, as well.

“My husband (Preston) and I moved to Chico in 1988. It was then that I went to work at Chico Creek Dental. I have two boys (Wyatt and Hayden). There are many height marks on Dr. Ryan’s office door (through the years he has measured our kids growth on his office door).”

“I feel very fortunate to have had Dr. Ryan for a boss, teacher and friend. He has taught me everything that I know about dentistry. I enjoy helping Dr. Ryan and other dentists in the Chico area while they perform treatment on patients in the hospital operating room.”

“I keep very busy trying to balance a husband, two boys, a small business (Lipsense), working at Chico Creek Dental and hospital dentistry.”

I enjoy spending time with my family at our cabin at Mill Creek-fishing, hiking and exploring. I enjoy doing many things in life but have a strong passion for cooking.”
