Cristopher Oviedo, R.D.H.

Registered Dental Hygienist
As a foreign-educated dentist from the Dominican Republic, Cristopher Oviedo has been practicing in the dental field for nearly a decade. After moving to America, Mr. Oviedo graduated with honors from CUNY Eugenio Maria De Hostos Community College Dental Hygiene Program and worked as a dental hygienist in NYC. With years of experience in general dentistry, he had learned that preventative techniques are cheaper than treatment procedures. In order to achieve that objective, he focuses on teaching every patient proper oral hygiene and home care instructions. He strives to help his patients understand that while having a dental cleaning is important, the most important is what you do at home to keep your oral cavity healthy. He provides personalized treatment to each patient with thorough, gentle procedures. Although he is not from NYC, he has been living and working here since 2017. Mr. Oviedo has found a way to bond with patients with his good communication, strong dental skills, manners, and amiable personality. He always treats his patients like they are his family and makes sure every patient feels comfortable throughout their appointment — before, during, and after treatment. Outside of dentistry, he loves to travel, spend time with friends, work out at the gym, and eat healthily. He has a very busy schedule working six days a week but in his leisure time, he enjoys several activities. He loves visiting quality restaurants in the city and exploring unique views of the city — especially from rooftops. Moreover, he enjoys listening to music, taking photographs, and watching films. However, most of all, Mr. Oviedo enjoys the presence of his friends and creating memorable moments with them. He is a Libra, fluent in the Spanish language, and his all-time favorite season in NYC is summer.
