In Memoriam: Dr. Marvin Christianson

First class of 1968, with then Dean. S. Wah Leung. Dr. Christianson: second from the right.

The Faculty of Dentistry is saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. Marvin (Chris) Christianson in October 2020.

Dr. Christianson was the first graduate to walk across the stage as part of the Faculty of Dentistry’s first ever class of graduates in 1968. After graduation he owned his own dental practice in Coquitlam. He also created the Dental Profession Advisory Program for staff and families of dentists in BC.

The class of 1968 included only 6 graduates, but has left a lasting impact on our Faculty, and alumni community.

We extend our deepest sympathies to Dr. Christianson’s family.
