About Us

Meet Dr. Chad Christiansen

Growing up in in the little town of Elizabeth, CO, Dr. Chad has fond memories of watching his dad practice dentistry, build his own office, and create a legacy of caring for a community. With the rest of his family hailing from the Cody, WY area, Dr. Chad has always been a true Wyomingite at heart.  He loves the Cheyenne area and the amazing people that live here. Dr. Chad feels honored to follow in his father’s footsteps and start his own adventure keeping patients smiling in Cheyenne.

Dr. Chad comes to Sunlight Dental with years of experience under his belt. After completing his undergraduate studies at Brigham Young University-Idaho, he went on to obtain a master’s degree in Biomedical Sciences from Midwestern University in Glendale, AZ. Dr. Chad then attended dental school at Creighton University School of Dentistry in Omaha, NE and received his degree in 2017. He practiced family dentistry in Sidney, NE and Loveland, CO before settling in Wyoming. If you’re looking for a new Dentist in Cheyenne WY, Dr. Chad would love to meet you and help you achieve your dental health goals.

Dr. Chad’s pride and joy are his wife and six children. Laine, Amy, Emma, Reed, Cody and Kate keep him and his beautiful wife Autumn busy! The family loves camping, hiking, fishing, hunting and playing sports like basketball, baseball, soccer and football. The Christiansens do their best to go watch the Cowboys and local high school teams play. There’s a good chance you’ll see them around participating in rec sports and school activities all while volunteering at their local church.  

Dr. Chad loves that every day at Sunlight Dental brings new patients and new challenges, and his favorite thing about the practice is that he gets to interact with people on a personal level. He is humbled and grateful to be able to provide a highly technical service that can make such a big difference in people’s lives. Dr. Chad wants nothing more than for you to feel like you are comfortable and in good hands when you come visit the office.  If you ever have any questions, concerns or apprehensions please feel free to let Dr. Chad know and he will do his absolutely best to help you and will always treat you like family.
