Denturist Matt Tripp Will Make You Smile

When Matt Tripp, owner of SmileMakers Denture and Dental (850 NW 6th Street, #12), talks about his career as a denturist, all he can do is smile.

“I was born and raised in Grants Pass and served in the Marine Corps,” Matt said. “Upon my return, I worked as a deputy sheriff for six years and a city police officer for three. After having children (sons Brody and Kellen), I decided I wanted a different lifestyle that would allow me to spend as much time as possible with my boys than law enforcement would afford, so I took a huge leap of faith and entered the dental field, becoming a dental hygienist in 2009.”
