A California native, Chrissy moved to San Diego from Huntington Beach at six years of age. She first became interested in a dental hygiene career after taking a work experience course in high school. After graduating from Poway High School and Palomar Junior College, she completed the Dental Hygiene Program at West Los Angeles College at the top of her class. Quickly, she returned home to San Diego to find the perfect dental home and continued enjoying the southern Californian lifestyle she can't imagine living without. She has enjoyed a hygiene position at Dr. Barry's Del Mar practice since 2000. In doing so, she has been very lucky to have developed incredible relationships, both professional and personal, with all of her patients. She loves educating both new and existing patients on the importance of preventive oral health ... and then seeing the difference it makes! Chrissy and her husband are raising two happy, healthy daughters in beautiful Carlsbad.
