She received the Colgate STAR Award, top 50 VCU Alumni Award, and has written several oral health articles, published in Your Health magazine. She also won the award for Richmond’s Top Hygienist in the Richmond Magazine for 2021 & most recently, 2022!
Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist
She has 13 years of practice experience as a hygienist and absolutely loves her profession. Her favorite aspects of helping her patients are nutrition counseling and thinking outside of the box to work to improve not only their oral health, but also their overall health. In addition to her career, she has a passion for fitness and nature.
In her free time, Christine travels the world on standby, thanks to her flight attendant sister. If you have Christine as your hygienist, be sure to ask why she chose dental hygiene as her profession, which happened by chance, when she was in the 8th grade!
Jerry, Dental AssistantJerry began her love of dentistry when she started attending J. Sargent Reynolds Community College and started her dental assisting program. She furthered her knowledge in dentistry with an internship at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry in the Oral Surgery Department.
Jerry has worked in many modalities of dentistry including family dentistry, periodontics, oral surgery and pediatric dentistry. She has spent six years of her assisting career in pediatric dentistry, where she enjoyed working with the children and their families.
Her love for the family atmosphere led her to Richmond Family Dentistry where she has found her dental home. She adores all the wonderful patients and the close interactions with the team.
She is married to the love of her life and they have two amazing boys together. When she is not treating her marvelous patients with Dr. Hart, she spends her time outside running; which is a huge passion of hers. She is always soaking up every moment outside with her husband and boys exploring Richmond.
Reina, Executive AssistantReina studied nursing in college and has worked in the dental field for over five years. She has a passion for helping others, especially those with dental anxiety. Initially she had a fear of all things dentist related, until she met a dentist who helped her conquer that fear. She ended up working at the practice and has experience working as a practice manager and treatment coordinator. Reina is bilingual, and speaks English and Spanish. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her family, especially her daughter!
