Dr. Chris Morgan grew up in Lakewood, Ohio and received his Bachelor of Science in Biology from Allegheny College. He went on to earn his Doctorate of Medical Dentistry from The University of Pittsburgh, School of Dental Medicine in 2001. Committed to excellence in his field, he was awarded the prestigious American Dental Association's Golden Apple Award for Leadership, an award given to only three dentists each year nationwide.
He is an active member of the American Dental Association, the New Mexico Dental Association (NMDA), the Santa Fe District Dental Society, the NMDA House of Delegates, and served as President for the New Mexico Dental Association 2016-2017. In 2016, Dr. Morgan co-chaired the Santa Fe Mission of Mercy, providing 1,200 patients with free services totaling $1.2 million.
Dr. Morgan said “I love living in Santa Fe and show my gratitude by giving back. I am proud to be the co-chair of the NM Mission of Mercy Free Dental Clinic in Santa Fe in 2024 where we hope to treat over 1,500 people in two days.” Dr. Morgan and his family volunteer at St. Therese Catholic Church and are large supporters of St Michael's High School scholarship fund. Dr. Morgan is also a member of the Santa Fe Rotary Club, volunteering at the annual Pancakes on the Plaza, an event that helped raise over $150,000.00 in funds for children in Santa Fe.
When not treating patients, Dr. Morgan spends time with his family. His daughter, Isabelle is a cheerleader at St. Mike's high school and his son, Jackson, is a freshman at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, in Florida. Along with his wife Kristy and his children, they love much of what Santa Fe offers, but they especially enjoy skiing in the winter and golfing in the summer. They also do a fair amount of camping, swimming and just spending time with family and friends.
