Dr. Christopher Zachary was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley. He was immediately drawn to a career in orthodontics through a positive experience with his own orthodontist, Dr. Bill Beazley. His interest was further cemented when he met Dr. Harry White at a career day presentation at Chaminade College Preparatory High School. The two made an instant connection, and maintained a friendship which became a partnership many years later. Dr. Zachary met his wife Trish at UC Irvine, married during his dental school years at USC, and started a family during his general practice training at UC San Francisco, and orthodontic residency at NYU. Dr. Zachary partnered with Dr. White in 1998, and maintained and promoted the practice’s reputation for excellence through and beyond Dr. White’s transition to retirement. Dr. Zachary’s family lives in Laguna Niguel with their three boys, Brody, Riley, and Adler. All three boys have enjoyed playing water polo, where Dr. Zachary is an avid enthusiast! When he is not in the office, on the pool deck, or at the beach, Dr. Zachary enjoys reading, swimming, gardening, and traveling.
