Kirk Christianson, DMD
Dr. Kirk Christianson attended Boise State University from 1995 to 1999 where he majored in molecular biology and graduated in 1999. From there, he went straight to dental school at Nova Southeastern University, receiving his Doctorate in Dental Medicine (DMD) in 2003. After graduation, he moved to Montana and served in the National Health Service Corps treating high-risk and low-income patients from 2003 to 2005. He has been in private practice in the Portland Metro area since 2005.
Dr. Christianson has a special interest in implant surgery and oral surgery and has received his Fellowship Award, Mastership Award and Diplomate Award from the International Dental Implant Association, the highest achievement and education possible in the field of implant dentistry and pre-prosthetic surgery. Less than 0.5 percent of general dentists have achieved this level of education and proficiency in implant surgery. He has been recognized for his work in implant dentistry in Seattle, Los Angeles, Hawaii, Florida and the Dominican Republic.
Dr. Christianson is certified and licensed in nitrous oxide sedation and conscious sedation. He is a preferred provider of Invisalign® clear braces, CEREC 3D same-day crowns, and modern endodontics (root canals). His philosophy is to provide modern dentistry in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere where the focus is prevention; however, when treatment is required, he believes in providing quality, aesthetically pleasing care that will stand the test of time. It is critical to not only recognize the disease process but to also know when to intervene with the longest lasting treatment available.
Dr. Christianson is from the Los Angeles area (San Fernando Valley), and his wife Chelle is from Battleground, Washington. Chelle handles the financial management of the office. They have a little girl named Claire, and he has two sons, Joe and Matthew, who are currently in college. His family enjoys skiing, scuba diving, sailing and motocross, and they are avid Blazer fans.
Dr. Christianson is a member of the American Dental Association®, the Multnomah County Dental Society, the Academy of General Dentistry, the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and the International Dental Implant Association, and he has licenses in both Oregon and Washington.
