Dr. Christine Koval was born and raised in Hazleton, Pennsylvania. By the age of 14, she knew she wanted to be a dentist. Her father, oral surgeon Dr. Eugene Koval, inspired her with his love and enthusiasm for the profession. She would work in his practice any time she was able. She attended Cedar Crest College in Allentown, Pennsylvania, where she received a double degree in Chemistry and Biology. She continued on to graduate from Georgetown University School of Dentistry in 1983. Dr. Koval started her practice with her father in Sarasota that same year, and the practice has been at the same location ever since.
