CR was founded in 1976 by Drs. Gordon and Rella Christensen who believed practitioners could confirm the efficacy and clinical usefulness of new products. With this purpose in mind, CR was organized as a unique volunteer purpose of testing all types of dental products and disseminating results to colleagues throughout the world. Dr. Gordon J. Christensen is Senior Consultant & Previous CEO of Clinicians Report Foundation, and a Practicing Prosthodontist in Provo, Utah. Dr. Christensen serves on the Board of Directors for the non-profit organizations, Dental Lifeline Network (Emeritus), and the National Children’s Oral Health Foundation.
