Meet Dr. Chris McTavish

Chris McTavish DMD, MS

I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to help improve my patients’ self-confidence by creating beautiful and healthy smiles. I enjoy getting to know each patient during treatment, taking full advantage of their diverse personalities to learn about different cultures and ways of life. As my own dentist and orthodontist helped me to realize the importance of a healthy mouth and smile, I want to be a positive influence on the lives of all the people I have the pleasure to meet.

The field of orthodontics is constantly improving because of new advances in science, technology, and materials. For this reason, I regularly attend courses in order to ensure that I am providing the best care possible based on the current research. These innovations often mean more efficient and more comfortable orthodontic experiences for my patients.

Outside the Office

A native of Rockville, MD, I currently reside in Urbana with my wife, our two children, and our dog. I enjoy spending time with my family; we love to be outside when the weather allows, especially when we’re hiking, canoeing, and camping.
