R. Christopher Watson, DDS
As a boy growing up in Fayetteville, North Carolina, Dr. Chris Watson had a very close relationship with his grandfather, a dentist himself, who introduced him to the profession. When it came time for college, he decided to become a dentist. Coupled with his strong compassion for people, he knew it would be a career where he could make a difference and utilize his artistic talents.
Dr. Watson completed his undergraduate studies at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and Florida State University. He returned to UNC and completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree. While at the UNC, Dr. Watson participated in a hospital internship at the University of Virginia. He joined Charlotte Dentistry® in 2000.
Energetic and friendly, Dr. Watson is known for his colorful bow ties and passion for golf. He possesses great zeal for comforting patients. “I love when they come in apprehensive, but leave relaxed and smiling. We work hard to make good dental health a positive experience.” At his church, he has served on the Marriage Ministry Board. He is currently active with the Pregnancy Resource Center, Bless Back Worldwide Missionary Group and a Home Group leader. He also serves on the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Metro Board as chairman.
Dr. Watson is a standing member of the Charlotte Dental Society, North Carolina Dental Society, American Dental Society, Academy of General Dentistry, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, American Orthodontic Society, International Association of Orthodontics, American Academy of Clear Aligners, and is a Certified top 1% Invisalign® practitioner for all North America.
Dr. Watson and his wife have four energetic young daughters, ages six to twelve, and both parents have taken on the responsibility of homeschooling. Each day includes prayer, smiles, laughter and a sense of accomplishment for them all. Dr. Watson is a very “hands on” father and devoted husband making time for long family walks and other group activities is a priority. He’s an avid golfer and tennis player and likes to vacation in Pinehurst and Hilton Head Island. This gives him the chance to enjoy his favorite games plus get in more quality family time.
