Christine Kline - Hygienist - Young & Tanner General Dentistry in Marietta

Christine K.
Registered Dental Hygienist

Christine is a graduate of the Medical College of Georgia and has been working in dentistry since 1999. She’s been working off and on at Young and Tanner for over 15 years as a fill-in hygienist and was eventually offered a more permanent position. Christine says she loves all of the various aspects of being a dental hygienist because she enjoys developing relationships with patients, getting to know someone on a more personal level. Christine finds it rewarding when a patient incorporates what you instruct them to do into their daily routine, and she notices improvements when they come to the office for a recall visit. She says that improving someone’s oral health is ultimately linked to improving their health in general. After having excelled in science when she was younger, Christine says she was drawn to dental hygiene because she didn’t want to be a doctor but she still wanted to work in health sciences. Christine says she’s never worked at a more friendly and honest dental office. The doctors and staff at Young and Tanner really care about their patients and coworkers. When she’s not working, Christine is usually parenting and being a mom is her favorite title, by far. She enjoys CrossFit and T-Barre exercise classes, gardening, walking, and paddle boarding. Christine is genuine, hard working, empathetic, and strong.
