Dr. Christine Ottersberg
Dr. Ottersberg is a baby-boomer originally from Flushing, New York. After a brief time in Indiana as a child, she and her family moved to Fairfax, Virginia. She received her BS in Biology from George Mason University in three years.
After pursuing a brief career as a Medical Technologist, Dr. Ottersberg followed her true calling and went on to the Medical College of Virginia for her dental degree. After working as an associate in Petersburg, Virginia, Dr. Ottersberg opened a family dental practice in southern Chesterfield. Over 25 years of dental practice brought Dr. Ottersberg to a defining point in her career.
After selling her large family practice, she decided to focus on the pursuit of excellence by attending courses at the world renowned Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, a post-graduate advanced education center for cosmetic and neuromuscular dentistry. The culmination of the dream was the opening of Fresh Smiles in 2006 where she has made continuing education an ongoing commitment for herself and her team.
Dr. Ottersberg is a certified provider for InvisalignÂ and conscious sedation. She is also certified in the use of lasers in dentistry. Dr. Ottersberg holds credentials in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS).
