I am impressed with the depth of his knowledge and understanding about the critically important relationship of oral to overall health and his effort to educate his patients. He utilizes his knowledge and training when designing dental treatment plans for his patients.
I know Dr. Christian and his ongoing training in holistic and cosmetic dentistry (at the renowned LVI) and his concern for the safe removal of amalgam fillings makes him ideally suited to remove and replace them. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a caring health focused and mercury free dentist.
