“Dr. Chris” brings a unique talent to the offices as he holds two separate degrees – one in Pediatric Dentistry and one in Orthodontics. After completing his dental education at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, he attended a two-year residency program in Pediatric Dentistry at the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. In 1997, he joined his father and brother, and then returned to Children’s National Medical Center in 1998 to receive his certificate in Orthodontics. He is a member of the American Association of Orthodontics and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.

Dr. Chris and Dr. Rachelle are busy not only in their office, but also at home with their three daughters. He does work in a game of racquetball whenever possible!

“I cannot say enough good things about Dermody Pediatric! The environment is kid-friendly and fun which is SO helpful for setting the mood for a non-stressful experience. The staff are so caring and do an incredible job at making your child feel at ease. My son had a chipped tooth that needed to be fixed and the experience was a breeze thanks to Dr. Rachelle and her wonderful team.” - Genevieve
“I took my son who has autism there today thinking they would not be able to do anything on him, but everyone was wonderful and Dr. Rachelle was exceptional. They knew just what to do to calm him down and everyone was so nice! Thank you ladies for helping my little boy! You’re awesome.” - Kerry
“My now teenager has been going to Dermody Dental since she was three years old. Dr. Rachelle, the hygienists, and the office staff have been phenomenal from our very first visit! Everyone is kind, knowledgeable, and seem to really care about my daughter & her dental hygiene. Thank you Dr. Rachelle & staff!” - Alicia
