The Professional Side
Dr. Nikki Christian is the leading doctor at our Independence office. Dr. Christian attended Kansas State University for her Bachelor of Science degree with an emphasis in pre-dentistry and continued on to the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry for her Doctorate of Dental Surgery. In the four years following her graduation, Dr. Christian worked for St. Luke’s Hospital at the Cabot Clinic, primarily with the underserved children and Hispanic patient population. She loves using her Spanish language skills in dentistry for mission work—whether it is in her local community or during dental mission trips to Guatemala, an experience that gave her such an appreciation for saving teeth and good oral health.
The dental field is so exciting, with ever-evolving innovations in technology, dental materials, techniques, and procedures. Dr. Christian keeps ahead of the curve through her involvement with the University Study Club, Spear Dental Education seminars and workshops, Invisalign® Continuing Education as a Diamond Plus Provider, the Arrowhead Dental Series, Clinical Mastery Series, and more. She is also a mastermind member of a group of dental change-makers—looking out for our profession. As an office, Dr. Christian and her team strive to be the best at what they do by working nationwide with some of the greatest in the industry.
The Personal Side
“Being successful involves being authentic, where time is spent equal to your values. One of my core values in life is to give back more than I take by creating smiles—through dentistry or other activities—and there is nothing I enjoy doing more! My time is mainly filled with the investment I put into my two growing boys and our practices. So, the activities that I am involved in outside of that mean a great deal to me. I am active with the PEO Chapter JI in Kansas City, 2nd Presbyterian Church in Brookside, and the Blue Springs Rotary.” – Dr. Christian
Dr. Christian has a strong sense of community from growing up in the small Southeast Kansas town of Fort Scott and has really enjoyed her involvement in the Blue Springs and Independence communities. She met her husband, Wes, in 2008 after graduation. He has been an inspiration to her career ever since. They have two boys, Henry and William, who have changed their lives and filled their hearts.
Dr. Christian keeps a balanced life with her boys and family, close friends, volunteer activities, and just by soaking up the present. Her family loves any type of physical activity outdoors.
