DOCTOR OF MEDICINE IN DENTISTRY
UNIVERSITY OF NEW ENGLAND, 2020
Dr. Christopher (CJ) Widdifield is a compassionate healthcare professional who joined the South County Smiles team in 2020. His first true experience with dentistry was in a dental chair having 2 extractions done at a young 5 years old; attracted to the chrome and shine of the office and instruments, his interest was piqued from this day forward. A graduate of Moravain College, he moved to Maine and obtained his Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry from the University of New England.
He returned to Rhode Island after graduating as he is a Westerly native as well as a beach and tennis aficionado. South County Smiles offered Dr. CJ the opportunity to work alongside seasoned practitioners and welcoming educators and in return he brings the team a fresh outlook and tireless enthusiasm. Dr. CJ has always been a leader and has demonstrated an entrepreneurial spirit, so he is a wonderful addition to the team and thoughtfully engaged in the development of the office.
An eagerness to learn persists to this day as he continues to pursue education in all aspects of the field; learning from courses and colleagues alike. He has particular interest in surgical procedures, aesthetics, and anything to do with pediatric dentistry. His chairside manner is calm and friendly and his patients rave about his meticulous work and caring ways.
