Dr. Christopher Carlson grew up in southern Arizona among the large saguaro cacti. He traveled to the state of Nebraska to complete his undergraduate education at Creighton University where he met his wife, Rachel. The pair then moved to Colorado where Christopher earned his doctorate degree at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine. Because providing optimal care to his patients was a top priority for Dr. Carlson, he completed a year of general hospital residency at the University of Washington where he expanded his skill set working on advanced dental and surgical cases. Having experience working in a challenging hospital setting has allowed Dr. Carlson to work quickly and efficiently to help patients achieve their dental goals.
Outside of dentistry Dr. Carlson and Rachel enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking in the summer and skiing in the winter. They love to try new restaurants and are always open to new suggestions. Although Dr. Carlson comes from the sunny dessert heat, he thoroughly enjoys the Pacific Northwest and all the varying climates
