Tristin is one of our amazing dental hygienists and has also recently started giving Traci a hand up front! She is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet and has enjoyed learning the ropes of the front desk. She works hard to provide the best dental care and enjoys educating her patients on their oral health. Above all, she cherishes the relationships she has formed with her patients over the years.
