About Our Doctors

Dr. Christine Chen, DMD

Dr Chen

Dr. Chen is originally from Flemington, New Jersey. She was the lead orthodontist at a busy practice in the Princeton area before she and her family became Marylanders. She is experienced in treating malocclusions in children, teens, and adults with traditional braces, the Damon system® and Invisalign®. She believes that positive change can start with a smile, whether it's a transformational comprehensive orthodontic treatment, or a touch up.

She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor in Applied Science (BAS) from the School of Engineering and a Minor in Fine Arts. She returned to her alma mater for a Doctorate in Dental Medicine (DMD), where she graduated with Honors and received the Quintessence Award for Clinical Achievement in Restorative Dentistry. She applies her studies in Engineering and Fine Arts every day to her orthodontic practice.

After dental school, she moved to New York City for an intensive post-graduate specialty program in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics at New York University to become an orthodontist.

While working as an orthodontist, she elected to take an examination with the American Board of Orthodontics and achieved Board Certification status. Board Certification is an achievement that demonstrates a dedication to practicing Orthodontics at a high level.  

Dr. Chen's fun fact is that she used to be a cosmetic chemist for L'Oreal USA, where she was awarded a US Patent for her research. Feel free to ask her about skincare and dental care tips!

Dr. Chen is a member of the American Dental Association, Middle Atlantic Society of Orthodontists, American Association of Orthodontics, and is Board Certified by the American Board of Orthodontics.
