Dentist South Orange, NJ - Dr. Christian

Welcome to Dr. Christian

L. Dawn Christian, D.D.S. and staff would like to welcome you to our website. As you navigate through the site you will find a wealth of information about dentistry, procedures available and our practice. We invite you to call our office with questions and to schedule an appointment.

We believe our patients deserve to have the information needed to make good choices about their oral health. We take the time with our patients to explain their treatment options. We feel this will lead to a more trusting doctor/patient relationship and, for many people, relieve the stress they feel about seeing a dentist.

 We have a nice clean, modern office in downtown South orange. Our building is located on the corner of Valley and 2nd. Streets: a brick building with a red awning.
