Oxnard, CA (PRWEB) May 14, 2014
The Anacapa Dental Art institute is pleased to announce the addition of a new dentist, Dr. Christine Tapp.
Anacapa founder Dr. Saj Jivraj said, “Dr. Tapp is a great addition to our team. She will be at the Oxnard location to start and hopefully will also move into the Woodland Hills location.”
Dr. Tapp has been a Ventura dentist for the past decade. Dr. Tapp is a member of the Santa Barbara Ventura County Dental Society, California Dental Association and American Dental Association. She has been invited to participate on the society's peer review board.
Jivraj could not say enough good things about Dr. Tapp.
“She volunteers at free dental clinics to address the needs of the homeless,” he said. “As a student, she donated her time and skills treating children of migrant farm workers.”
Tapp stays up on the latest dental techniques by taking courses on topics including implants, oral pathology and dental ethics.
She earned her Doctorate from the University of Southern California School of Dentistry in 2004.
Dr. Tapp was born and raised in northeastern Pennsylvania. She attended DeSales University and earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry.
