About Us

Meet dr. Wayne christian

Welcome!

I was born and raised right here in Sunny St. George.

I graduated from Dixie College and then from BYU with my BS degree. I went to the University of Kentucky for four more years and received my DMD. From there I went on to St. Louis University for two more years of schooling for my MSD. That’s the Orthodontist degree that allows me to be a Smile Maker!

I attend multiple trainings and seminars to bring you the greatest and latest in orthodontic treatment! We are “The Fun, Affordable Place to Brace!”

(You’ll find all you need to know about orthodontics on this website…But don’t worry there won’t be a test, just straight teeth and a beautiful smile!)

Being an orthodontist allows me to provide a service to people that improves their self-esteem and quality of life – I love it and I love to have fun at work.

Meetthe team

Kristi – Office Manager

Kristi started working in the orthodontic field in 1998. “I love working with each new patient and getting to know the families that come to our office.” Helping people afford the benefits of orthodontics is one of her top priorities. She is always available to answer any questions at any time and her main concern is making sure that each patient that comes through the door has a wonderful orthodontic experience and the best orthodontic care in Utah.

Nancy – Scheduling Coordinator

Nancy Johnson joined Dr. Christian’s Orthodontic team in March of 1997 as an assistant and has since served in many positions within the office. Nancy currently can be found most often helping new patients feel comforable and at home in our office. “I love sharing in the excitement when a patient gets started with treatment and following them through to the end result. The change is so fun to be a part of”. Nancy and her husband, Layne, together have 10 children and 17 grandchildren and love spending time with family. She also loves the family she finds here at Dr. Christian’s office each day at work: “It so great to work with amazing people, working here is like coming home.

Brenda – Clinical Coordinator

Brenda has worked in the orthodontic field since 1996 and loves being a part of a team that creates beautiful smiles. She is responsible for making sure all of our patients are seen as soon as possible and for keeping the wait time in our office to a minimum. We think she is one of the best Orthodontic Coordinators in Utah.

Debbie – Lab Technician

Debbie started with Dr. Christian almost in the beginning – assisting in 1994. She wanted more flexibility with her four children so now she works in the lab making retainers.

Kenna – Clinical Assistant

Kenna has worked in orthodontics since 2004. She has worked in different positions helping patients on their orthodontic journey but most enjoys being involved in the mouth where the action happens. She loves watching our patients gain confidence through their smile! You’re never fully dressed without a Smile!

Chrissy - Clinical Assistant

Chrissy grew up in St. George. She is a student at Dixie State University majoring in vocal performance. She loves anything to do with music and enjoys doing anything outside with her family and friends. Chrissy has worked here at the office of Dr. Wayne Christian for the past two and a half years and loves creating beautiful smiles.

Office information

Getting Started

Before braces are placed, patients must visit a dentist for an exam and have any necessary fillings. Patients should visit the dentist every 6 months for a thorough examination and cleaning. Before each orthodontic appointment, patients are encouraged to brush their teeth. Toothbrushes and toothpaste are provided in the office.

Click here for a copy of the patient information form to be signed by your dentist or dental hygienist at your routine cleaning. (This certificate is in PDF format. If you’re unable to read PDF files, the Acrobat Reader PDF viewer can be downloaded for free from Adobe.) When this certificate is signed by your dentist and you bring it in, you will receive 5 Orthobucks that you can redeem for prizes. To view prizes go to our Orthobucks for Prizes page under the Patient Zone section on the site.

Convenient Appointments

We try our best at Dr. Christian’s to have appointments scheduled to fit your busy lifestyle. Our staff makes every effort to accommodate each patient’s schedule. The appointment to place your braces usually takes 90 minutes. You will then see us at regular intervals 4 to 8 weeks apart for adjustments (which usually take 30 minutes). We schedule longer appointments in the morning and shorter appointments in the afternoon. By doing this, we do not reserve an entire afternoon for one or two patients. Our office gets very busy after school. If you prefer to come during a quieter time, please schedule an appointment during school hours.

We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.

Treatment Time

Treatment may last from 12 to 30 months, though this will vary depending on your individual case. Appointments are typically scheduled from 4 to 12 weeks apart. Your cooperation in keeping scheduled orthodontic appointments, maintaining proper hygiene and taking care of your braces may allow you to finish your orthodontic treatment early.

Payment Options

  • In-House Orthodontic Financing
  • Affordable Payment Plans
  • No Down Payment (OAC)

The cost of the treatment is based on the severity of the patients’ problems. The quality of care patients will receive in our office is the highest available. This will be discussed at the initial consultation appointment. To be sure all of your questions are answered, we set aside one hour for this consultation at no cost. Please call our office at least 24 hours in advance if you need to reschedule so that we can continue offering this as a courtesy visit.

Please call our office to discuss these affordable financial arrangements so you can start smiling!

In-House Financing

At the initial exam you will receive an estimate that explains our program for in-house financing and how you can make a low initial payment and extend the remaining balance in equal payments as long as the treatment lasts with NO INTEREST. Dr. Christian does not want affordability to get in the way of a healthy and beautiful smile. We will do everything we can to make this work for you!

Automatic Drafts

Set up your monthly payment to be automatically drawn on an agreed upon date each month from your checking or savings account, or using your debit or credit card. Please provide us with a voided check or deposit slip or card information at your first appointment.

Cash Discount Option

A full payment on the day of the initial banding appointment may result in a significant discount.

Care Credit Financing

For a more flexible payment plan and your convenience we offer Care Credit. This enables you to make smaller payments over a longer period of time with minimal interest.

Insurance

We accept and file most insurance. We also accept CHIP and Medicaid. Please provide us with your insurance information at your first appointment.

Your First Visit

We are very excited to meet new patients. From the moment you arrive at Dr. Christian’s office for this hour long appointment, you will realize that you have “Come Home To Our Office” and our first concern is your CARE. At our office we educate our patients every step of the way and you will leave our office with a full understanding of the amazing possibilities that are available with orthodontics. You will be greeted by our treatment coordinator who will take you on a tour of our office. Next, x-rays and photos will be taken to assist Dr. Christian with his diagnosis during your consultation.

Last but not least is the relationship we establish with our patients. We consider you a member of our family the first day you come into our office! We strive to get to know each and every one of our patients on a personal level because we truly care about YOU. We hope that you will share and laugh with us throughout your treatment in our office.
