Dr. Christina Streff

.

Dr. Streff is a Marquette University alumna, graduating Summa Cum Laude in both her undergraduate and dental school studies.  She grew up just outside of Madison and developed an interest in dentistry at a young age growing up next door to her grandparents. Her grandfather was a dentist and inspired many of her family members to enter the dental field. After graduating from Marquette in 2013, she practiced in Minnesota for several years while her husband worked at Mayo Clinic in Oral Surgery.

Dr. Streff loved the relationships she made there but is happy to be back helping smiles in her home state of Wisconsin. She started practicing in Madison in 2018 a few weeks after having their first son.  She enjoys making relationships with her patients and treating all generations of families from grandchildren to grandparents.

She loves learning and advancing her knowledge through continuing education courses and seminars. She has been a member of several study groups over her career including the Spear Study Club and the Seattle Study Club of Madison.

Outside the office, she loves to be active — watching and participating in sports. She has always been involved with running, both competitively and to keep healthy. During dental school she qualified for the Boston Marathon. She has been learning to golf and is loving it!  Outside of the office she loves spending time with her husband and their 2 young boys, as well as with their large extended family.

Fun fact about Dr. Streff is that she can solve a Rubik’s Cube and has always been able to find four leaf clovers — a skill she learned from her grandma!
