Dr. Christensen grew up in a small farm town. From a young age he knew he would be a dentist. His mother gave him the idea during one of his several trips to the dentist as a child. He never felt fearful of his childhood dentist and wanted to replicate those same experiences for others.
While attending BYU in Provo, Utah Dr. Christensen married his lovely and amazing wife Denise. They have three adorable little girls: Jada, Sadie, and Shay. As a family, they love spending time together and making each other laugh. These four ladies are his pride & joy. Part of his concern for younger patients is due to his concern for his own children. He never wants a child to experience dental pain (or anyone, for that matter). He is always happy to see a child in the office and answer any questions a concerned parent may have.
He attended Marquette University School of Dentistry in Milwaukee, WI until May 2014. Since that time he worked in private practice in the same small, rural area of Washington state he grew up in until March 2017. He and his wife Denise decided to move to the Grand Junction area to be closer to her family.
Dr. Christensen is excited to practice in Fruita. He loves small towns for the slower pace of life they afford. He continues to enroll in Continuing Ed courses to provide small town patients the same quality of care that can be found in big cities. Dr. Christensen’s passion is, you guessed it, teeth, bone, gums and the entire oral cavity! Learning more about dentistry is what thrills and motivates him. It’s an exciting field and he hopes that you too can be excited about it!
