Christine has an A.S. in Dental Hygiene and has been at Bateman Orthodontics since 2013. She meets with new patients and families, introducing them to our office and team.

When she’s not introducing people to the wonders of orthodontics, Christine is busy with her husband, two teenage sons, and the family puppy. The school year is filled with cross country and track meets, as well as music performances, and the family enjoys hiking and exploring together, too.
