Christa graduated from Mount Ida College in Newton, MA with her dental hygiene degree in 2009. After practicing for a year, she returned part-time to complete her Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene and graduated in May 2015. 

After successfully incorporating a caries risk assessment into her practice, Christa was ready for a bigger challenge. When she heard of the opportunity at Northeast Delta Dental for the Oral Health and Wellness Solutions Specialist position three years ago, she was thrilled that a dental benefits company wanted to incorporate risk assessments into dental practices. 
Christa’s goal at Northeast Delta Dental is to make the PreViser® risk assessment the standard tool to be used on all patients before, during, and after dental treatment.
