Introducing Dr. Christy Savage, the heart and soul behind our practice. Hailing from Birmingham, Alabama, Dr. Savage is excited to help you achieve the radiant, lifelong smile every patient deserves.
A Scholar with a Passion for Orthodontics
Dr. Savage’s journey into orthodontics started at the University of Alabama School of Dentistry, where she not only excelled but graduated with honors. Her relentless thirst for knowledge propelled her into a challenging three-year orthodontics residency program, culminating in a post-doctoral Master of Science degree.
Breaking Barriers and Forging the Future
But Dr. Savage isn’t just about diplomas and degrees. She’s a trailblazer in her field, making history as the first woman to lead both the Alabama Association of Orthodontists and the Alabama Orthodontic Alumni Association. Her commitment to pushing the boundaries of orthodontic care is clear in her active involvement in various state and national committees. Currently, she serves as a delegate to the American Association of Orthodontics, where she continues to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of orthodontics.
Community at the Core
Beyond her orthodontic achievements, Dr. Savage’s heart is deeply woven into the fabric of the Birmingham community. For her, providing exceptional care to patients in Trussville and nearby areas isn’t just a job; it’s a privilege. Her profound connection to her hometown fuels her commitment to serving its residents and ensuring they walk out with not just beautiful smiles but also hearts filled with joy.
Joy Beyond the Clinic
When she’s not crafting smiles, Dr. Savage finds her own joy in her family. She’s married to Dr. Lauren Savage, an orthopedic and spine surgeon, and together, they share their lives with three amazing children who light up their world.
