Dr. Andrea Radabaugh, DDS
Dr. Christensen is pleased to announce that Dr. Andrea Radabaugh has joined our Team, on a part-time basis, to help us treat patients with airway issues from babies who are tongue tied to adults with obstructive sleep apnea. Patients love her calm demeanor and sweet personality. She has already proven her skills with our infant tongue tie patients. Dr. Radabaugh still has her dental practice in Craigmont, Idaho so is only in our practice part-time. We appreciate her willingness to help us in our very busy and growing airway practice.
I was born and raised in southern Idaho. I graduated in 2005 from Boise State University, magna cum laude, with a bachelor's degree in Biology. I went on to attend Creighton University School of Dentistry, graduating magna cum laude with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2010. During one year of an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency at Idaho State University, I was able to expand my knowledge in all aspects of dentistry.
My husband of 11 years, Fred, and I make our home in Craigmont, along with our seven year old daughter, Hadley. I have owned my practice in Craigmont for almost 12 years. In my free time, I enjoy reading, sewing, crafting and crocheting. I also volunteer in my community as a 4- H leader and as a member of the Friends of the Library.
My daughter was born with a significant tongue and lip ties and struggled with breastfeeding, speech, dental crowding and sleep issues. Unfortunately it wasn’t until she was 5 years old, that we realized why. Her treatment at Christensen Orthodontics has us on our way to resolving these issues. I also lost my 40 year old brother this year as a direct result of untreated sleep apnea, so I fully believe in and support the mission of Christensen Orthodontics in treating sleep and airway issues and not just straightening teeth. I joined Christensen Orthodontics in October of 2022. As a dentist, I am realizing how underdeveloped jaws, airway issues and tongue ties are affecting my patients. I am excited to now be a part of this amazing team helping patients and families in the LC Valley and surrounding areas.
Front Office Coordinator / Scheduling Coordinator
I started working at Christensen Orthodontics in 2019 and have enjoyed meeting all our patients. I have the privilege to work with patients and their families as they go through treatment. I help as a Scheduling Coordinators as well as help in different areas of the office working on different mini residencies that the Dr. Christensen puts on throughout the year. I really enjoy the interactions I have with our patients and knowing that what we do here is helping improve their health. Our team is so patient focused, and we take the time to get to know each individual and improve their overall health from start to finish. It is a blessing to work with such a great team. We enjoy spending time together having fun and helping our patients! I have been married to my amazing husband Jason since June of 2004. We have five, amazing and talented children: Abigail, Chloee, Isabelle, Brooklynn and Roman. Our big family enjoys spending time doing things outdoors and we spend most of our time camping, hunting, fishing, and boating throughout the year. We also love watching our kids play sports and compete in academic competitions throughout the school year.
I started working for Christensen Orthodontics in May of 2023. I began working as a Scheduling Coordinator learning the ropes and meeting and schduling all of our wonderful patients. Recently, I was offered the opportunity to train as an Orthodontic Assistant for Dr. Christensen. Since then, I have enjoyed every day being able to interact with patients and being a part of improving their health and watching their confidence grow! Being a part of this team and doing what we do here has been an amazing experience. When I am not at the office, I spend my weekends with my family boating, hiking, buying more house plants, soaking up the Summer sun and skiing in the Winter.
Orthodontic Treatment Coordinator
I started working for Dr. Christensen in June 2010, but started working in the dental field in 2006. I am one of our treatment coordinators, so I see new patients for consultations.

I started working at Christensen Orthodontics in November 2021. I have enjoyed working with a remarkable team of people that work hard to ensure that the patients not only have a great smile but have the best health possible. Dr. Christensen wants the best for every patient that walks through the door. He shares that passion with the rest of the team, and they all work diligently to give the patient the best experience and outcome possible. As the Financial Coordinator, I work closely with insurance companies. I submit claims to them, so you don’t have to. Although I don’t see patients when they come in, I have an open-door policy. I welcome everyone with financial questions to stop by so we can review their account. I have been married for 33 years. My husband and I have 3 adult children, all of which are married. We currently have 4 grandchildren, and one on the way. My passion is my family and my grandchildren. I love spending time with them. I love seeing the grandchildren explore, learn, and grow. I’m so thankful I get to be a part of that. When I’m not working, I love camping, fishing, boating, reading, and of course, spending time with family.
I began my work as an orthodontic assistant at Christensen Orthodontics in 2017. The first thing I noticed after working here is the amazing team. I love getting to work with all of these fabulous people who make work so fun. Everyone has their special part to play, and everyone works together to make sure our patients’ experience is the best they can get.
I really enjoy the opportunity to meet so many new people, and seeing their confidence build when they get their new smile. It’s amazing to change lives and help people breathe better!
I have a wonderful boyfriend. We spend a lot of our time traveling and adventuring as much as we can. We also enjoy summertime activities like camping, paddle boarding and road trips. In my free time, you can catch me enjoying the sunshine or reading a good murder mystery.
I started working at Christensen Orthodontics in May 2022. I always knew I wanted to work in the dental field but had no idea what to expect when I was hired.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy fishing, hiking, and playing video games with my boyfriend. I really enjoy hanging out with friends and family. I also have a wiener dog who keeps me on my toes. We love playing fetch in the backyard and taking naps together when we’re done.

Watching patients leave with better sleep and a happy smile is a consistent experience that I will always enjoy. I was born and raised here in the valley and love getting to know new people! As a child, I played softball, then through Junior High and High school I was passionate about Cheerleading. I have a son, named Enzo and an amazing boyfriend.
