Our Pediatric Dental Office & Team
Christy is our office manager and mom to three: Brady, Chase, and Alli. She has been married for over 20 years to her high-school sweetheart whom she met growing up in Sheridan.
With over 20 years experience in the dental field, Christy still enjoys taking care of people, especially kids. She chose dentistry because she loves lending a helping hand and caring for others.
Christy started her career as a dental assistant. She has since moved into the office manager role and is now actively involved with AADOM. Christy has been in pediatrics for years, and she can’t imagine not working with kids every day. She loves the interaction and seeing them grow into young adults.
What do you do outside of the office? Spending time with my family at the barn and at livestock shows. Our family raises Southdown sheep for the 4-H fair. I love to scrapbook when my schedule allows. I became involved with Crossfit over a year ago and you can find me at the gym 4 days a week.
Who is your hero? Why? My mom is my hero. She came into my life when I was young and has always been there for me. I know no matter what the situation, she will be there to support me and lift me up when needed. She stepped into a role that she didn’t have to and has always taken that role seriously.
What “lesson from mom” do you still live by? Unconditional love and support for others.
What flavor ice cream would you be? Vanilla. It is dependable, consistent, tried and true.

Our Kid-Friendly Office
Hamilton County Pediatric Dentistry has the equipment and facilities to care for children of all ages. We have monthly contests, reward, and games for kids to play. We are also very active on social media. The open plan of the office helps generate interaction in both young and older patients, which creates a family-feel and friendly buzz. Dr. Juntgen and our team hope you enjoy your unique visit to our practice.
Everything in our office revolves around kids. We offer before and after school appointments, lots of parking, modern technology, and specialty services in an accessible location. We do all we can to make your child’s visit easy. We also try to lessen the stress on busy moms and dads by offering family appointments where all siblings can be treated at the same time.
Ready for a dental visit custom-designed for your child’s needs? We take the extra step of setting up an initial call where we get to know a little about you and your family. This information allows us to create a unique experience for each child. From welcome signs to movies and games, we are prepared to distract and entertain kids in a comfortable environment.
When your child visits our practice, he or she gets an instant and exclusive pass to the Kid’s Corner. This area of our lobby is packed with books and games, as well as a movie screen. Our team loves to be silly, so we may play special games or start a Nerf war while your child is visiting! We also paint nails, apply temporary tattoos, and run in-office contests. We do whatever it takes to make kiddos feel at ease and happy during their stay.
