Jamie – Hygienist
Jamie came to know Dr Christian in 2010 while she was working as a temp-dental hygienist. She continued to work as a temp/fill-in hygienist for Dr Christian and other Madison area offices through 2017, as she was enjoying the flexibility of hours while raising her two sons. In early 2018 Jamie found that she was now looking up at her older son—6’ tall at age 14—and decided that it was time she could go back to working more regularly. Luck would have it that Dr Christian had the need for such a position and Jamie has been a happy member of his team since February 2018.
Jamie discovered her interest for dentistry while still in high school. During her senior year she was given the opportunity to work part-time in a dental office while receiving school credit. Directly following high school Jamie moved to Madison and began to pursue he interest in dental hygiene at Madison College. She graduated from the dental hygiene program with honors from Madison College in 2001. Shortly after graduation she spent six months working with a temp-dental hygiene company where she was given the experience of working in several different offices around the Madison and Milwaukee area. Jamie ended up spending eight years with an office in Middleton where she began to focus her practice in the area of periodontics, and has maintained her focus in the area of periodontics ever since.
Jamie lives on the west side of Madison with her husband, two sons, two dogs and one fat cat. She enjoys long walks with her dogs, loves sunny days, and enjoys being a home-body spending time with her family and cuddling up with her animals.
