Day to day, you'll find Christine tending to the daily office operations and assisting where needed. While she doesn't spend all day in the office, she enjoys contributing behind the scenes and making sure that the practice and staff are staying connected with our patients. Although being in a dental office is new for Christine, healthcare and the business world are not. Prior to becoming a full-time mom, Christine attended nursing school and worked as a phlebotomist for several years. Christine also works part-time as the church secretary for St. Francis Church in Brookhaven. Christine is blessed to have six children (including our own Dr. Stephanie Ricks!!), a loving husband of nearly 25 years, and four grandchildren. While not in the office Christine enjoys exercise, traveling, and her favorite football teams. She values faith, family, and friends.
