Chris Worth, DDS
Chris Worth was born in Fargo, ND and raised across the Red River in neighboring Moorhead, MN. In 2005, he graduated with a degree in biology from Creighton University in Omaha, NE, and in 2009 he earned his D.D.S. from the same institution. After graduation, he sought to develop his clinical skills in a big city setting, and took an associate position in Chicago, IL. Looking to advance professionally, in 2013 he and a former classmate opened their first dental office in downtown Chicago, followed by a second Chicago office in 2020. That same year, he decided to join his sister’s Elkhorn practice as a part-time associate dentist to maintain a more consistent involvement in his Omaha-based family’s life, to broaden his clinical experience from his mentor and older sister, and to fulfill a long-discussed vision of bringing together the “sibling dental dream team”!
From an early age, Dr. Worth demonstrated a propensity for helping others and artistic expression. By the time he reached college, he realized dentistry provided the perfect marriage of health care and creativity. He takes a passionate and holistic approach to his profession, striving to satisfy his patients’ dental needs in a practical and esthetic manner. His dedication to dentistry and meticulous attention to detail help him produce healthy and beautiful smiles.
In his free time, Dr. Worth enjoys traveling, tennis, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and spending time with his family. He is thrilled that his sister and Legacy Dental have provided him the opportunity to practice the profession he loves while bringing him closer to the people he loves. He looks forward to continuing to grow personally and professionally while serving the Chicago AND Omaha communities’ dental needs for years to come!
