Dr. Shaun Christensen


I am a native of Idaho, having been born and raised in Idaho Falls. I graduated from Ricks College (now BYU Idaho) in Rexburg and then attended Weber State University in Ogden, UT and Idaho State University in Pocatello before attending dental school in Portland, OR. I graduated from Oregon Health Sciences University in 1998 with a DMD degree. I then attended a one-year postgraduate training program called Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) with the U.S. Army at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. I spent an additional three years as a dentist in the U.S. Army in Germany. I moved to Nampa in 2002. My wife and I have four children.

Philosophy

I believe that with proper care and motivation, people can have healthy smiles with teeth that will function for a lifetime. I love children and I make sure that kids have a great dental experience in our office. I can empathize with patients that are fearful about dental visits, so we provide music, videos, nitrous oxide, and sedation to anxious patients. I also have hospital privileges at St. Alphonsus Medical Center in Nampa and Southern Idaho Surgery Center in Meridian. Some patients prefer that their dental treatment be performed in the hospital operating room under general anesthesia.

I recognize the necessity of staying current with technology. I have attended over 700 hours of continuing education since graduation from dental school. It is exciting to see how new technologies have provided a higher level of care and comfort for patients. My expertise covers a full scope of dentistry, including: cosmetic procedures, orthodontics, simple tooth removal & wisdom tooth removal, root canals, placement of implants, and fabrication of dentures and partial dentures. I can also treat minor facial injures, and TMJ (jaw-joint) disorders, and provide appliances to treat snoring and sleep apnea.
