Christina McDermott - Hygienist

Christina McDermott

One of our most valuable assets is a wonderful, gentle and caring Hygienist. Christina McDermott has practiced with our office for over twenty years and is both very thorough and very gentle. She doesn't just have a knack for putting people at ease-she works with people who have dental phobias and helps them overcome their fears. She's a wiz at picking up on little details, so that she can clean better and pick up on any problems earlier. She has a terrific track record for treating periodontal disease. Even people with very sensitive gums or a delicate mouth trust her with their routine cleaning. Christina was born in Indiana and graduated with honors from Indiana University. She has practiced as a hygienist in Indiana, Illinois and California in addition to Virginia. She is a highly valued team member in our office.
