Dr. Christina A. Penn, DMD

 

Dr. Christina Penn was born in the Bay Area and grew up in Cupertino, CA. She majored in Biology at San Jose State University and completed a second degree in Dental Hygiene from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. 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. Throughout her academic career, Dr. Penn was very involved in multiple leadership positions. 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. She was also inducted into the Honos Civicus Society for her commitment to both domestic and global dental outreach. Her most recent dental mission trip included traveling to Baoji, China; where she treated endodontic conditions in an underserved pediatric population and also lectured to local dentists. 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.  Their first child, Ava was born in August 2019, 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.

After suffering through Christmas with a very sore tooth, Dr. Penn, and her staff fit me in on New Years eve! I was grateful to be starting the new year pain free! I was amazed at how comfortable they made me feel, and at ease on top of that! Am truly a grateful patient!

Dr. Penn and ALL of the staff at Diablo View Endodontics are so amazing! They quickly put my fears at ease and when I’ve gone back to my dentist to get the crown, my dentist comments on the top notch quality of Dr. Penny’s work. I wish that I could go to Dr. Penn for all of my dental needs. The team is so caring and professional and I simply can’t say enough about them! I highly recommend them!

Lana Archibald

I had to get a root canal for a molar that was keeping me up at night. Dr Penn and her assistant Taylor were amazing. I'm a little long in the tooth so this was not my first root canal. However, it was my BEST root canal. I liked Dr Penn and Taylor so much I even called to see if I could have them for all my dental care. Which sadly was no as they specialize in Endodontics only.

First class all the way! This office was wonderful..very friendly and professional. If you need this type of work done, look no further-Dr. Penn and her staff made me feel comfortable from the start.

Teri Price

I loved the atmosphere. The staff made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Penn and her staff are very friendly and professional. It was a great experience for me. I am so afraid of the dentist and it seemed they understood. I would highly recommend Dr. Penn to someone.
