Say “Hi” to Dr. Calley Christie
Our caring oral surgeon is excited to help your family restore their oral health. Here is a little introduction from our dentist:
I was raised by a single working mother who was an art teacher until my loving stepfather entered my life around the age of 7. We were a low to middle-income family growing up in the Everett area. My home served as a halfway home for much at-risk youth growing up, from my foster brother who entered my life when I was 12 after being abandoned by his parents, to extended family members and friends who suffered from similar problems. I was able to see the tremendous difference it can make when you give people support.
As I grew up, I chose to pursue dentistry and later oral surgery as a career. I trained at major metropolitan hospitals that catered primarily to the impoverished at Mary Immaculate Hospital in New York, University Hospital in New Orleans, and Cook County Hospital in Chicago. I treated countless oral infections, broken jaws, and trauma at these hospitals where I saw the worst outcomes that can result from lack of access to care. I also saw people turn their lives around after getting proper care.
