About Your Dentist
Christian Becker, DMD
The best and cheapest dentistry is when the right thing is done extremely well the first time and it lasts for a long time.
Dr. Christian Becker was born in Apopka, Florida and moved to Sarasota when he was 4 years old. A graduate of Riverview High School, Dr. Becker was a bagpiper and subsequently Pipe Major in the Kiltie Band. Dr. Becker actively competed when he was a high school and college student in highland games across America, winning numerous awards in individual and pipe band competitions. His studies led him to Florida State University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology. While awaiting admission to dental school, Dr. Becker returned to Sarasota and spent the next twelve months volunteering his time at the Senior Friendship Center of Sarasota Dental Clinic as a dental assistant. The next year was a busy year, as Dr. Becker got married to his high school sweetheart Nicole, moved to Arizona, and began dental school at Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine in Glendale, Arizona. Upon graduation, Dr. Becker moved to North Port, FL and began practicing dentistry in the community he grew up in.
