Christina P. Mason, DDS
Caring and compassionate general dentist Christina Mason, DDS, is committed to her patients’ oral health. At her relaxing practice Christina P. Mason, DDS, Inc., in Clayton, California, Dr. Mason’s mission is to change lives for the better and to bring love, kindness, goodness, gentleness, and even fun to the lives of her patients and team.
Dr. Mason’s journey into dentistry began at a young age. She fell off her bike in third grade and subsequently susanknocked out her two front teeth. Her pediatric dentist placed two gray, stainless steel crowns on her teeth, and although her dentist didn’t mean to hurt her, the process was unpleasant, to say the least. As a result, Dr. Mason was left with unattractive front teeth and a new fear of the dentist. Flash forward to seventh grade, when Dr. Mason started going to an adult dentist who wasn’t kind and couldn’t get her name right. She thought, “I could do this better than he is! And I’d be nice, too!”
It was then that Dr. Mason started seriously considering dentistry as a future profession. Following high school, Dr. Mason graduated from the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), one of the top dental schools in the country, more than 30 years ago.
She has extensive training in every aspect of dentistry, including pain control, crowns and bridges, Invisalign®, full mouth restorations, and implant dentistry. She makes it a top priority to treat patients with dental anxiety and convert them to dental enthusiasts, with the help of a calm, gentle approach, and sedation dentistry when needed. Thanks to her patient-focused philosophy, her patients voted her the best in the East Bay five years in a row.
Dr. Mason makes it a point to continue her education and stay up-to-date on the latest advancements in her field. She has taken many courses in creating computer-assisted porcelain restorations, and she holds a certification through Great Lakes Education in dentistry for the CEREC machine. She is also a Gold Plus Provider for Invisalign®.
Dr. Mason is a Fellow of Doctors of Conscious Sedation (DOCS) and the Center for Neural Occlusion (CNO), making her the only CNO-certified dentist in California. In addition, she is extremely knowledgeable in TMJ disorders and is the first dentist in California to be certified in the Disclusion Time Reduction (DTR) technique with T-Scan, along with joint vibration analysis diagnoses.
Dr. Mason lives and works in Clayton, and is an avid hiker of the trails in the East Bay Area.
