Board of Directors, Virginia Dental Association Foundation

Recognizing the critical connection that access to quality dental care has to quality of life, Dr. Christina Byerson approaches her mission daily with a smile. Dr. Christina Byerson was born in Japan and after living in Oklahoma and Germany settled in Hampton, Virginia. While on a Mission of Mercy Project in Wise County, Virginia, she received confirmation that dentistry was her calling. She completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry at Virginia Commonwealth University and then matriculated on to VCU School of Dentistry where she earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS). She also earned an MBA in Health Care Administration from Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi.

Dr. Byerson is currently an Assistant Professor at VCU School of Dentistry. She has also provided comprehensive patient care in various settings, including Private Practice, Federally Qualified Health Centers, Military Readiness for service members of the armed forces, and inmates within the Corrections Sector. In addition, Dr. Byerson is the Vice President of Peter B. Ramsey Dental Society.

Dr. Byerson is kind, friendly, approachable, and loves interacting with all people. She prefers approaching dentistry using a cheerful attitude, evidence-based research, and genuine concern for the best interest of her patients. She is an active member of The Academy of General Dentistry and attends conferences and other events to stay up to date on topics and trends in dentistry.

Dr. Byerson is supported by family, which includes her husband, Braxton - a life coach, professional speaker, and author - and four very active young boys. When she isn't caring for patients, her top priority is spending quality time with her family.

Vdaf Success Stories

Joan-Johnson-with-Dr.-Swanson November-2014


Fredericksburg, Virginia

J.J. needed assistance with getting the dental services she needed to improve her oral and overall health. In July of 2014 she turned to DDS for help. We were able to match her with a volunteer dentist to complete a treatment plan and a few days before Thanksgiving, J.J.’s dentures were delivered! Truly a wonderful gift for J.J. and the volunteer dentist!
