Dr. Charlotte Church
Dr. Charlotte Church is a native Nebraskan, and now a proud resident of Vermont. She knew from a young age she wanted to pursue a degree in the healthcare field where she could study the biological sciences and fuel her passion for working with people. Through complex orthodontic treatment as a child and a fascination with teeth, she realized dentistry was the career she wanted to pursue. She attained her undergraduate degree in Biology at Nebraska Wesleyan University, where she graduated with high distinction. She then went on to dental school at the University Of Nebraska Medical Center College Of Dentistry, where she graduated with high distinction in 2014.
After graduation, Dr. Church began practicing in a small community outside of Lincoln, Nebraska. After a year of practicing, she also started teaching as a clinical instructor at the UNMC College of Dentistry. Over the next several years she thoroughly enjoyed both practicing and teaching dental and dental hygiene students, and became Course Director for the class which prepares dental students for seeing patients in the clinic. Though she loved Nebraska and both of those positions, it was time to start a new chapter. After some time in a long-distance relationship and many visits to VT, she made the move to join her partner, Dr. H. It didn’t take long for them to realize Bristol is where they want to be long term. They are so excited to start this new adventure serving Bristol and the surrounding areas with compassionate and high quality comprehensive dental care.
Dr. Church loves spending her free time with family and friends and spending time outdoors. Her favorite outdoor activities are hiking and paddleboarding. Her other hobbies include music, food, and spoiling their three dogs, Nala, Ziggy, and Razor.
