At Wahlers Family Dentistry, we are proud of our fantastic team. We make a point of building strong relationships with our patients, which is easy to do when you can see the same friendly faces each time you visit us! Plus, each member of our team lives close by, so we are in tune with the values of our community.
A trusting relationship between you and your dental care team is one of the keys to achieving long-term oral health. We are here for you when you need us, and we look forward to building a close relationship centered on trust and quality care.
We’d like to take a moment to introduce the members of our team.
Dr. Christopher Wahlers
Dr. Wahlers was born and raised in central New Jersey. He attended Gettysburg College for his undergraduate studies, where he majored in biology, graduating summa cum laude. During his undergraduate volunteer experiences in different medical settings, Christopher decided to pursue a career in dentistry.
During his time at New Jersey Dental School (Rutgers University), Christopher served as president of his class and graduated in 2003 as a member of the OKU National Dental Honor Society. He continued his education with an Advanced Dental Education residency program at Temple University.
Prior to Wahlers Family Dentistry, Christopher spent many years in Pottstown, PA as the primary dentist at Pottstown Family Dental Spa. In the past, he has also practiced in Northeast Philadelphia and has taught part time as an adjunct professor for Temple University School of Dentistry. When he is away from the office, Christopher enjoys spending time with his wife and three children. Hiking is his favorite hobby, and he has hiked the trails of many national and state parks throughout the US and Canada.
