Dr. Christine K. Fernandez began her dental career in high school as a dental assistant in her hometown. She obtained a B.S. in Neuroscience and Behavior from Columbia University. After college graduation, Dr. Fernandez remained at Columbia for her dental education and received her doctorate of dental surgery (DDS).
She was accepted into a one year general residency program, followed by a three year specialty program in prosthodontics at the Manhattan Veterans (VA) Hospital. During her prosthodontic residency, she also took classes at the NYU Advanced Education in Prosthodontics program. In her final year at the VA hospital, Dr. Fernandez was asked to serve as the Chief Resident. Her residency focused on the esthetic restoration and replacement of missing teeth, and she was fortunate enough to treat some of the most well-deserving people – our nation’s veterans.
Dr. Fernandez looks forward to building long-lasting relationships with her patients. She is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), New York State Dental Association (NYSDA), and the New York County Dental Society (NYCDS).
When she is not doing dentistry, Dr. Fernandez enjoys everything New York has to offer! She even runs the city streets, having completed three NYC full marathons and 2 half marathons. She also continues to support her Columbia University Lions—she played and captained the varsity women’s field hockey team in her college glory days. Dr. Fernandez currently lives in the Upper West Side with her husband and wheaten terrier dog, Sadie.
