Meet the Doctors
Many members of Dr. John Tripp’s family are business owners, so it’s no wonder he followed their entrepreneurial example and opened his own dental practice. The Macon, GA native chose to do it in New Orleans, LA, a city he fell in love with while attending Xavier University on a tennis scholarship.
After graduating from Xavier, he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from Meharry Medical College School of Dentistry in Nashville, TN. He then completed a general practice residency (GPR) program in Brooklyn, NY. The GPR gives participants the advanced training and experience they’ll need to provide a broad spectrum of dental services. Dr. Tripp spent several years working as an associate before following his entrepreneurial dream of opening his own practice. He now enjoys helping those kinds of dreams come true for dental students from his alma mater by welcoming them to do externships at his office.
Dr. Tripp remains involved with continuing education in all areas of dentistry because he feels it’s important to stay informed of the latest techniques to give his patients the best treatment possible. He also believes in using state-of-the-art digital technology in his New Orleans office. He truly loves helping his patients build their confidence, one tooth at a time.
In his spare time, Dr. Tripp enjoys working out, running, and watching football. He’s always ready to chant “Who Dat” at New Orleans Saints games. It might not be a coincidence that his dental office is located just a short drive from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
