Dr. Christina Ramirez
Owner and Board Certified Pediatric Dentist
Christina Ramirez, DDS, was born and raised in the border town of Del Rio, Texas. The oldest of five children—with four younger brothers—she has always had a love of caring for others.
Dr. Christina practiced pediatric dentistry in the San Antonio area for eight years before making the move to the south Austin area. She truly loves all her interactions with patients and the patients' families! She lives just minutes from Tiny Texans and loves being part of the neighborhood.
During her childhood, Dr. Christina experienced both the good and the bad where dental care was concerned. This reinforced her passion for creating a positive experience for all her young patients. Dr. Christina had known she wanted to be a pediatric dentist since the eighth grade when she realized it would be a great way to merge her love of science, education, and children.
Her favorite thing about her job is gaining the trust of a nervous child and having him or her leave the office with a smile.
Dr. Christina’s list of credentials includes:
- 2003—Texas A&M University, degree in Biomedical Science, Magna Cum Laude
- 2007—University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio Dental School, Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree
- 2009—University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio Dental School, Certificate in Pediatric Dentistry
- 2010—The American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, Diplomate certification
She is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the Hispanic Dental Association, the Texas Dental Association, the American Dental Association, and the Capital Area Dental Society, as well as a diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
One of the ways she gives back to her community is by sharing the joy of a dental career with youth who might be interested in following a similar path.
She and her husband have a white German shepherd named Shiloh. In her free time, Dr. Christina enjoys walking her dog, country dancing, and spending time with her family.
