Dr. Melisa Christian
I live in Dallas, Texas. There is wonderful opportunity here, and diversity. There is also a really great running community.
I practice in a general dentistry office with the most supportive and energetic staff. I became interested in dentistry after meeting a dentist who inspired me by the way he made his patients feel so comfortable.
I recharge by running. It’s an avenue to find your inner strength and do things you never thought possible. I compete in marathons and triathlons, and I also volunteer coach. In 2008, I competed in the Olympic Marathon Trials in Boston.
I love teaching. I’ve taught second year students at Baylor College of Dentistry how to design and fabricate removable prosthodontics. It was an amazing experience! I’d love to teach again when I have more time.
I hope to make a difference in my patients’ lives. Dentistry is more than restorations, it’s caring for people. Making patients comfortable and helping them trust me is as important as making their smile beautiful.
