Hello, my name is Doctor Christine Mikhail. I graduated from the University of Southern California in 2001 and have been practicing for almost ten years. I moved to Cincinnati in 2003 and began practicing in West Chester, Ohio in 2006. I am happily married to a physician and have three beautiful children. One main question I have gotten over the years is why I chose to become a dentist. After all, for most people, going to the dentist is like having a lobotomy performed. To me it was simple.
When I lived in California, I had the opportunity to serve a very poor community of migrant farm workers. My team and I traveled as a mobile dental clinic and had the blessing of working with these wonderful people. They never had dental insurance, let alone been seen by a dentist. They were sickly and penniless. In turn they were grateful for the care we provided. Most of the time, when they knew they were going to be seen, they would come dressed in their best church clothing which sometimes had holes.
This experience taught me a lesson about being content. It also taught me that no matter what situation is presented to me whether it’d be financial difficulty, fear, or self esteem issues, answers can be provided to be sure everyone is cared for. Even though West Chester, Ohio is demographically different than that of these migrant workers, my team and I are pleased to offer the best care we can and the best service available. I feel I have been blessed to be here and look forward to working with you.
