Justin Tripp, DDS

Meet Dr. Tripp

Born and raised as a third generation Nevadan, Dr. Justin C. Tripp received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Nevada, Reno before attending dental school in Baltimore, Maryland. Dr. Tripp began practicing dentistry in Seattle, and after establishing industry experience in larger markets, Dr. Tripp brought his high level of care and expertise home to northern Nevada. 

Although Dr. Tripp is adept in all areas of dentistry, he’s become an expert in aesthetic, reconstructive, and implant dentistry, and is a member of the Seattle Study Club, an international study group that focuses on complex aesthetic and reconstructive dentistry. After being published in multiple peer reviewed journals and publications, Dr. Tripp continues to further his education in the industry and is an esteemed member of several other organizations including:

  • American Dental Association
  • Nevada Dental Association
  • Northern Nevada Dental Society
  • Academy of General Dentistry
  • International Congress of Oral Implantology
  • Spear Faculty Study Club Mentor

Now in his 19th year of professional dentistry, Dr. Tripp continues to bring the communities of northern Nevada the highest quality dental care available while keeping the comfort of his patients in mind. Dr. Tripp is a proponent of using the most advanced technologies in an effort to create the best patient experience possible. This includes advanced technologies like digital x-rays to reduce the radiation patients are exposed to and CEREC, the same-day dental restoration system that creates aesthetic ceramics chairside.

Being the true Nevadan he is, when Dr. Tripp isn’t in the office, he’s probably not inside at all! You can find him with his wife, Kelly, and their twin daughters enjoying skiing, hiking, water sports, golf, and whatever else the outdoors has to offer.
