Meet Dr. Christine Julian-Hoernke
Dr. Christine Julian-Hoernke is one of three partners and seven general dentists at Madison Family Dental Associates, working out of our Madison office.
Dr. Julian-Hoernke grew up in the Twin Cities and moved to the Madison area during adolescence. She attended Arizona State University, where she focused on psychology and fulfilling pre-med requirements. While taking a gap year to apply to medical school, Dr. Julian-Hoernke was offered a job as a dental assistant in Madison. That opportunity sparked her love for dentistry and lead her to the University of Iowa College of Dentistry.
Upon graduating, Dr. Julian-Hoernke knew she wanted to be in a group setting rather than being a solo practitioner. She found Madison Family Dental Associates and felt that because it was owned and operated by practicing dentists, who could help grow and guide her, it was the ideal practice for her. Now that she is an owner, she extends that same level of collaboration to all of MFDA’s dentists.
There is so much about dentistry that drew Dr. Julian-Hoernke in. She loves the science, artistry, fine detail work, patient and coworker interaction, as well as the work-life balance the dental field provides. She had a great dentist growing up and wanted to provide that same level of care and personal experience to others. As a general dentist, Dr. Julian-Hoernke loves the wide variety of procedures she gets to perform. Her goal is to educate her patient’s regarding their oral health and how it affects their overall wellbeing. More recently, Dr. Julian-Hoernke has expanded to airway centric and non-surgical orthodontics, which allows her the ability to help both kids and adults function better for a lifetime.
Outside of the clinic, Dr. Julian-Hoernke stays very busy with her husband, three children, and two dogs. She enjoys gardening, swimming, biking, cross word puzzles, and attending concerts and Overture Center productions (pre-COVID). Her kids participate in many extra-curricular activities including swim team, water ballet, baseball, dance team, gymnastics, soccer, winter sports and more! One of her biggest passions is being an active supporter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, as one of her children has Type 1 diabetes; an ever-changing challenge that keeps her on her toes!
