Meet Dr. Cristina Waterman

Meet Dr. Cristina Waterman

Dr. Waterman is originally from Northern California, but she moved to Oregon in 2000 to attend OHSU, where she began her dental career as a hygienist. After practicing dental hygiene for four years, she returned to OHSU to continue her dental degree, graduating in 2010.

Helping people achieve their dream smile is the heart and soul behind Dr. Waterman’s dental work. While she enjoys all types of dentistry, she also has additional training in cosmetics, Invisalign, and sleep apnea.

Cloud Nine Dental allows her to use her training, skill, and love of dentistry to improve lives through transforming smiles. She’s excited to give people the smile and confidence they’ve always wanted!

Outside of the office, Dr. Waterman loves spending time with her husband, three children, and a cute Pomeranian named Cooper. She spends her free time enjoying the dunes, camping, traveling, and relaxing with her friends and family.

The dentist was, like everyone else, friendly, but more importantly, she paid attention to details. I needed a cleaning and in the initial exam, they found a tooth with a broken crown. She used state-of-the-art imaging equipment and explained what was needed in appropriate detail. Their referral for a root canal was excellent too (30 min. from start to finish). I returned for my crown yesterday and it fits perfectly (and looks like the rest of the tooth). I feel comfortable recommending this office without reservation.


I am happy to share my positive experience with cloud nine dental. From the first greeting with the front desk staff to the first class dental care I received. Every procedure was explained so I understood the need. I was impressed with the great use of a very skilled staff. Melissa's chair side assistant graciously check in with me after procedures to make sure my needs were met. "WOW," I am so happy I received this referral from another happy Cloud Nine patient. Thank you, Dr. Mike and fabulous staff.


Dr. Waterman is absolutely incredible! She cares about her patients and is obviously passionate about her work. She looks at the big picture when it comes to dentistry, and doesn’t try to use a bandaid to fix a problem that can continue to cause issues long-term. I had a wonderful experience with her and her staff!


This is the best dental office I have ever visited. All the staff including the front desk staff, the assistants, hygienist, and Dr. Adams are friendly, welcoming, and a delight to be around. I thoroughly enjoy the experience every time I go in for an appointment which in my experience is rare. Would absolutely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a new dentist!


Cloud Nine Dental for me has always been like a family business. I am always excited and looking forward to having my dental work done there. Everyone in that facility deeply cares for my health. I am happy and grateful for their care and the loving attention I always get whenever l have a dental appointment at Cloud Nine Dental. The dental care there has always been superb and has never been disappointing. I am glad to be a client.
