Meet Dr. Christopher Gillette
Dr. Christopher Gillette has a true love of dentistry. He views it as the perfect blend of science, technical skill, and establishing relationships with patients. The balance of science and art appeals to his nature.
This board certified general dentist brought that love and a wealth of expertise to Ward Road Dental in 2017 when he purchased the practice from Dr. David Eaton. Prior to that, Dr. Gillette served six years in the U.S. Air Force as a dentist.
He offers preventive and minimally invasive care to families, as well as dental implants and sedation dentistry. His philosophy is to intervene only in the presence of disease, and to keep small problems from becoming larger, more expensive ones.
Dr. Gillette earned his bachelor’s degree in music from Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri in 2007, graduating Summa Cum Laude with Honors. He earned his dental degree in 2011 from the Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine with the distinction of Magna Cum Laude.
Dr. Gillette joined the Air Force that same year in order to serve his country and the men and women who serve it as well. While in the military, he pursued more specialized dental training. He completed a two-year advanced education in general dentistry and received a master’s degree in oral biology from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in 2015. He attained board certification with the American Board of General Dentistry a year later, something fewer than 1 percent of dentists achieve.
Dr. Gillette says he learned a great deal during his time in the military, but the Air Force’s core values in particular made a marked impression on him: integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do. Dr. Gillette took those values to heart and uses them in his approach to dentistry.
This lifelong learner who grew up in a small Missouri town is committed to continuing education and expanding the range of services available to Ward Road Dental patients.
