Registered Dental Assistant

I like watching a patient’s confidence increase as treatment progresses and love seeing those big, beautiful smiles the day we take off their braces!

I hold an A.S. degree, am a dental assistant, and have been with this practice since 2005. Working in our clinic, I assist Dr. Christensen in all aspects of patient care, along with educating and encouraging patients to keep up on their home care. We have a great camaraderie at Christensen Family Orthodontics and will make your orthodontic experience enjoyable!

Family keeps me busy outside of work hours. I have a daughter and son in their late teens, and a dog, Bandit. I love to hike, spend time at the lake, garden, and attend any activity or event that my kids are interested in.


Orthodontic Assistant

Building relationships with both patients and the CFO Team is definitely my favorite part of this job.

Having braces early on in my life really peaked my interest in the dental field. After high school, I went through a dental assisting program that I loved! After my program I struck gold and started working at CFO. CFO is my first job in the dental word so everyday I’m learning something new and exciting. I plan to continue my education and gain more skills in order to help more patients.

I am such a Disney & Marvel fanatic. My boyfriend and I have 1-year old pitbull named Bailey who we adore. I am also very family-oriented and spend as much time with them as possible because they are so important to me.


Treatment Coordinator

I have over 7 years of experience working in the orthodontic field as a financial coordinator as well as a treatment coordinator.

We all say it, but it is the patients! It is so much fun to see each and every one of you every six weeks or so. Orthodontic field is  great because you truly get the opportunity to build relationships with patients and their families.

Often you can find my family and I roadtripping. I love going to places we’ve never been before. When the kids are away, you can find my husband and I taking cooking and dance lessons. Oh and speaking of dancing, one of my life goals is participating in a flash mob, so if you're someone who can make that happen, let me know!


Orthodontic Assistant

Heather's fascination with orthodontics began in 2001 when she was in treatment herself. At your next appointment, ask her about all the hours she's spent in ortho and dental chairs. She has great perspective as a patient and can calm any nerves you may have!

Outside of patients, Heather loves making appliances, such as expanders and retainers. This part of the job incorporates her love of creating art and science.

When she's not at the office, you can find her riding dirt bikes, baking, listening to country music, and hanging out with her boyfriend.


Front Office Receptionist

The warm and friendly Receptionist at our office is Ashley! Ashley takes pride in providing patients with the best initial interaction as they enter our office, setting the tone for a positive and welcoming experience.

Ashley's responsibilities go beyond the welcoming smile as she efficiently manages & oversees our schedule, works with referring offices to ensure patient info is seamlessly transferred, and meticulously documents patient interactions, just to name a few.

Funny enough, Dr. Christensen and Ashley share various things in common including working at Cold Stone Creamery at the same time and attending Bullard High School. Beyond the office, Ashley enjoys spending quality time with her husband and two children, often outdoors. She’s also a golf enthusiast, so be sure to ask her about her golf game!

With her warm and welcoming personality, Sara instantly puts patients at ease, creating a positive and comfortable environment for their orthodontic journey.

Sara's training and experience enable her to provide exceptional care during various procedures. From assisting with brace adjustments to taking X-rays , Sara's attention to detail ensures that each patient receives personalized and precise care. Oh and did we mention she's a second-generation orthodontic assistant. Her mom worked in the field for several years prior to retiring.

When Sara isn’t in the office, she is more than likely spending time with her daughters, Addilyn & Ellie, and husband, Chase. Sara enjoys reading, relaxing, and all things outdoors... when the weather permits it of course. 


Lab Assistant

Having recently graduated high school, Alisa's journey with Christensen Family Orthodontics began as a patient of Dr. Christensen.

Intrigued by the field of orthodontics, she took the initiative to shadow Dr. C for over 150 hours, showcasing her dedication and passion for the craft. Now, Alisa contributes to our team both in the lab and helping with patients. She plays a vital role in fabricating appliances like retainers, bringing precision and care to every detail. Her involvement extends to assisting with x-rays, photos, and DentalMonitoring, among other tasks

We're proud to share that Alisa is the recipient of the prestigious Smittcamp Scholarship at Fresno State, which Dr. C is an alumni of. Alisa's enthusiasm, coupled with a background as a former patient, brings a unique perspective to our practice.


Office Manager

So, I'm actually Dr. Christensen's husband and one of my favorite parts of working here is helping my wife achieve her dreams of having her own practice. She's wanted to be an orthodontist since she was 8 years old and I get so much enjoyment helping her thrive in her career. I also love helping patients and working with our incredible team!

You'll find me doing several things behind the scenes at the office, including marketing, IT, building maintenance, payroll, and whatever else the office needs. My background's actually in the corporate world where I worked at Red Bull and various advertising agencies; however, I love my new line of work.

When I'm not at the practice, you'll find me hanging out with my wife and toddler. Our toddler definitely keeps us busy with art projects, riding bikes, visiting the park, and whatever else her curious mind wants to do. Whenever I have time to myself, I enjoy reading and surfing.
