She continued her dental education in the D.M.D. Program at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, where she graduated at the top of her class.  After finishing dental school, Dr. Penn continued directly into the Advanced Education in Endodontics program at Tufts where she received a Certificate in Endodontics.

She was selected as a member of the Patient Care and Quality Assurance Committee, the Culture of Care Committee, and the Post Graduate Ethics and Professionalism Committee.

Dr. Penn looks forward to continuing to provide dental health care and education both locally and abroad.  

 

While in dental school at Tufts, Dr. Penn met her husband Christopher, who is an orthodontist. They are currently expecting their first child, and their expanding family played a huge role in their decision to move West. Chris and Christina look forward to being closer to her parents and brother while growing their immediate family. Additionally, the couple loves the sunny weather and spending time outdoors. When Dr. Penn is not treating her patients or spending time with family, she enjoys hiking, traveling, cooking, and practicing yoga. She also is a dog lover, and plans to adopt a pet once the family is settled.

Patient Testimonials

I went into see dr. Penn in regards to my tooth hurting badly. She let me knowni needed to get a root canal, so i proceeded to get it done, and honestly her staff as well as herself were so amazing, made me feel comfortable, and i actually almost fell asleep during my rootcanal, did not hurt what so ever. She even made sure the tooth was fully covered before sending me out back to my original dentsit so i can get my crown on. I have to say this has been the best experience i have had in the densitry world. Such amazing group of people and i would definitely refer them to any1 that has dental issues.

Ashley Trapozzano

I had the usual annoyance and trepidation that comes along with your first root canal, not to mention the discomfort beforehand, but Dr. Penn and her staff treated me with the utmost courtesy and professionalism at every stage including scheduling calls with Jenn and Donna, handling me at the office, answering questions, the procedure itself, discharge instructions, and follow-up. I figure they also did a great job technically but can’t speak to that since I’m not the dentist. I do know I didn’t feel any pain during the procedure and and they did everything they could to minimize my discomfort during my time in the chair. As a professional, one thing that meant a lot to me was how Dr. Penn treated her staff with courtesy and respect, and how her staff (particularly assistants Taylor and Jenn) were friendly and down to earth. I will unhesitatingly recommend them to friends and family and they will be my first resource should I need this experience again (which I hope I don’t).

Christopher

I broke my tooth and it required a root canal. Dr. Penn and Jen were both amazing! I have a terrible fear of the dentist and Dr. Penn and Jen relieved all of my fears. I was completely relaxed for the entire procedure and had NO pain was it was done. I wish I could get all of my dental work done by Dr. Penn. Thank you!

Lana Archibald

Absolutely amazing service from everyone at the office. The staff were friendly and helpful and Dr. Dobin was magnificent. He took his time to explain the process and was reassuring throughout the procedure. I would definitely recommend this office to anyone in need of a root canal.

Mayari Castro

I was referred to this office because of a complicated tooth with infection involved. Dr. Penn explained everything to me and the possibility of not being able to finish the root canal if there was an issue beyond repair with the tooth. There was and she stopped the procedure, explained everything to me, packed the tooth with a temporary filling and referred me to an oral surgeon. I cannot say enough good things about this office. Dr. Penn was kind, considerate, gentle, walked me through everything before and after she did it, and made absolutely sure that I was Completely numb before she started any of the procedure. IF I have to have any major work done I will be going back to have them do it. This is a Wonderful office with caring physicians and a Terrific office staff!
