Dr. Chris Rosenvall has lived in lots of different places – even Mexico and Brazil – but he loves the Valley the best! He and his wife Brittany have four very spirited children. There is never a quiet moment at the Rosenvall house!
Dr. Chris finished his specialty training in pediatric dentistry at The Ohio State University in 2013. After that, they moved to Alaska for a “short” two-year adventure… but then they fell in love with the Valley and ended up staying! They are happy to raise their kids in such a wonderful place.
Here is Dr. Chris Rosenvall explaining why he became a pediatric dentist:
“My youngest brother, Alex, was born with Down Sydrome. He’s an amazing person that has touched so many lives, especially my own. Alex needed a lot of therapy and support when he was young, and I’m really grateful for all the organizations that helped him as he grew up.
When I was in college, I was trying to decide what to do for a career. One day, I happened to take Alex to a dental appointment with his pediatric dentist. I had never been to a pediatric dentist before. My childhood dentist was kind of mean and I remember he would make me cry…I didn’t like the dentist at all! But my brother’s dentist was completely different. I could tell that kids actually liked being there, and the entire office was designed for them. My brother went back to see his dentist with a big smile, and came out laughing and waving goodbye to everyone. After that, I knew that I wanted to be a pediatric dentist, where I could interact with awesome people like my brother Alex and help kids enjoy going to the dentist.”
