It is with the greatest pleasure that I write to introduce myself and express my gratitude
and excitement at having the opportunity to provide dental services for you and your family.
I am Dr. Christine Highum and I look forward to addressing all of your dental needs. I am
passionate about helping patients improve their oral health and achieve a beautiful smile. When
people ask me why I enjoy being a dentist, I explain that I love to build personal relationships
with my patients and treat the person, not just the tooth.
My husband, Rob, and I knew we wanted to put roots in a community I have always been
a part of. I grew up 5 minutes from where the office is located, and attended La Sierra Academy.
We have three wonderful sons: five-year-old Julian, three-year-old Jonah, and six month old
Jack. They definitely make my life full and busy!
I have been involved in dentistry most of my life. My mother was a longtime dentist in
Riverside and I always knew I would follow in her footsteps. After attending college at UC San
Diego, I attended Loma Linda University School of Dentistry, graduating in 2014. I have
practiced locally for the last seven years.
I, along with Karen, Sheri, and the rest of our long-term staff look forward to continuing
to provide you and your family with the same excellent care provided by Dr. Johnson. We are
accepting the same insurance plans, offering the same services, and cannot wait to meet everyone
I hope that you will give me the opportunity to connect with you and discuss your dental
concerns. We are all committed to providing you and your family with excellent dental health
care in a professional and friendly manner.
In order to provide an additional opportunity to talk and ask questions, feel free to reach
out to me personally on my cell phone: (909) 238-8372.
To the extent you have any questions or concerns, I would welcome any texts/calls.
Very truly yours,
Dr. Christine Highum
