Christine A. Fortmann, DDS, FACP

dr christine a fortmann

Dr. Fortmann is committed to practicing dentistry in a way that’s tailored to each patient’s individual dental health and strongly believes in a multi-specialty team approach to patients with complex needs. 

Dr. Fortmann received a Bachelors degree at UCLA in Biology, finished her Doctorate of Dental Surgery with honors at the University of the Pacific in San Francisco, and completed a three-year prosthodontic residency at the University of Texas where she was asked to be chief resident.  While she was there, she also completed a year-long preceptorship in dental implantology. To bring her education full circle, she was thrilled to return to California to join UCLA’s Maxillofacial Prosthetics program. Working with patients in need of facial prosthetics has been the most rewarding phase of her dental career.  

Dr. Fortmann now calls Southern California home permanently. She followed the swallows home to San Juan Capistrano to set up a solo private practice and also works with three three very talented Maxillofacial Prosthodontists at Oral Construx in Beverly Hills, CA.

Dr. Fortmann became one of a handful of prosthodontists in Orange County to obtain Board Certification in Prosthodontics and is honored to be a Fellow of the American College of Prosthodontists (FACP) and an Associate Fellow of the American Academy of Maxillofacial Prosthetics.

In 2016, she became Faculty at the UCLA School of Dentistry where she continues to enjoy teaching dental students and residents at the university. 

When she’s not working with students or busy in practice, you can find Dr. Fortmann gardening, biking, watercolor painting or exploring the natural beauty of Southern California in flip flops.
