Be Comfortable

Warm & Cozy

For your comfort, we offer fuzzy blankets to stay cozy and dark sunglasses to help make your experience more enjoyable.

Wash Away Your Fears

For those who have dental anxiety, there are several levels of care to create a relaxing experience. We offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral sedation medications. If that isn’t enough, some patients enjoy their experience best when an anesthesiologist provides complete anesthesia so you can sleep for your dental visit.


Christopher Chin, MPH, DMD

Dr. Christopher Chin was born and raised in Southern California. After graduating from the Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health in Mesa, Arizona, he spent his first several years of practice obtaining a Master’s in Public Health degree while serving in the National Health Service Corps in rural Missouri. He then went on to focus on advanced dental education in surgical and cosmetic techniques.

Dr. Chin and his wife fell in love with the desert and outdoor activities of Southern Arizona and decided to call Tucson “home” for good. They enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and camping, especially when their dogs Taffy and Missile can join them. Dr. Chin enjoys meeting new people, including getting to know all of his patients.

What I enjoy most about working in dentistry is my patients. They become like family and its amazing to be part of their dental journey. I have been in dentistry and this practice for over 25 years. In my spare time I enjoy swimming, morning walks with my husband and playing with my grandkids.


Practice Administrator

After graduating from The University of Connecticut in 2006, I could not wait to start working in dentistry; we get the ability to do whole mouth smile makeovers which can drastically change someone’s life. I love the moment our patients see themselves for the first time with a new smile. When I’m not at work I’m usually found on the golf course, ski slopes, or reading by my pool with my dog Lucy.



I love working in dentistry and I like to create a great experience from start to finish and see my patients happy and healthy. I like to get to know each patient like they are my family and answer any questions they have regarding their treatment. When I am not in the office I enjoy drag racing and spend my time with my family.



I have been working in the dental field since 2017, the thing I like most about dentistry is that I get to not only focus on oral health but I get to treat my patients overall health and show them how good hygiene is linked to the rest of their body. When I am not at work, I spend my time with my daughter, I like to use Pinterest as inspiration for recreating crafts and baking recipes.



I have been in dentistry since 2015, I love it because it is incredibly rewarding to give patients a beautiful smile. I love spending time with my wife and son, my favorite hobby is playing soccer. I also enjoy working with my parents at their restaurant in Wilcox.



I have been in dentistry since 2017 and it is my passion. The best thing about working in dentistry for me is that I get to make a difference in my patient’s oral health. While not at work I enjoy working out, skating and recently started making homemade soaps. I spend my free time with my husband and our two kids.



After graduating from The University of Arizona in 1999, I went back to school and started working in hygiene. Working in dentistry gives me the ability to connect oral health to whole body health and educate my patients on the importance of our field for whole body care. When I’m not at work, I am part of the Southern Arizona Rescue Association, enjoy trail and mud runs and hiking.


Front Office

I started my career in the dental field in 2017. My education in Social Services and career in retail and salon management gave me many of the skills needed to relate to patients, be a helpful team member, and be of service to others whenever possible. I love getting to know patients and helping them understand their treatment and feel as comfortable as possible whenever they are in our office. I am a native Tucsonan and a born Arizona Wildcat! I’m happily married to my high school sweetheart, and we are proud parents to our wonderful little boy. I also stay busy as a freelance makeup artist on the weekends; a hobby I’ve enjoyed for over 10 years.
