Personal Life​

​”Thank you for reading about my educational experience. Here at Meier & Benitez Orthodontics, we want you to be a part of our big family. Family is very important to me. My family and I are all very close and love throwing our weekly barbecues. My wife and I really enjoy spending time outdoors enjoying all the that our beautiful area has to offer. I like to spend time at the beach, especially when we take our golden retriever “Mia” with us. I hope to meet you soon and welcome you to our family!” -Dr. Christian
