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.

Patient Testimonials

This was my fourth visit to Diablo View Endodontics. On each occasion, I found Dr. Penn and her entire staff to be not only extremely professional, but very considerate. From the moment you enter the office, you are treated with the utmost courtesy and respect. Your comfort is their top priority. The procedure was virtually painless, and there was no discomfort at all in the days that followed. If you need any endodontic work, this is the place to go. Bravo Zulu.

My experience with Dr. Penn and her assistant during the root canal procedure was comfortable and pain free. She and her staff are professional, caring, and compassionate and I felt at ease and in very good hands with Dr. Penn. The front office staff are very nice and helpful. I'm happy with the dental treatment received from Diablo View Endodontics.

This is the second time I've been referred to your office from my regular dentist and again you exceeded all of my expectations. Let's face it, it's never fun to get your teeth worked on, but your staff made me feel welcomed, comfortable and truly cared for from the moment I opened up the front door. Thank you for everything you did to make my visit less scary and painful. I will DEFINITELY recommend your services. Take care and be safe!
