Tricia Feist, DMD
Dr. Tricia Feist was born and raised in Southern California. Her enthusiasm for teeth began early when, after the removal of her braces, she declared that she was “going to be a dentist, because I can’t imagine a better job than helping people keep their smiles.” This interest in dentistry only flourished as she learned just how vital a healthy mouth is to a person’s overall mental and physical wellbeing.
Dr. Feist’s favorite part about practicing dentistry is having the opportunity to provide a caring and comfortable experience for all of her patients. From her perspective, a trip to the dentist should feel more like a catch-up visit with friends who just happen to be experts in dentistry at the same time!
Dr. Feist remains actively committed to enhancing her clinical and diagnostic skills through continuing education courses as well as through her membership in the Seattle Study Group of Santa Monica. This group is a prestigious interdisciplinary group of practitioners focused on comprehensive treatment planning to achieve optimal results for patients. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Latin from UCLA and a Doctor of Medical Dentistry (D.M.D.) degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. Dr. Feist is also a member of the American Dental Association and the California Dental Association. She completed her general practice residency at the Denver Health Medical Center where she received advanced training in all aspects of general dentistry, emergency dentistry and management of medically-compromised patients.
Dr. Feist lives in Redondo Beach with her husband James and son Robert. In her not-so-often free time, this avid baseball, hockey and Disneyland fan enjoys watching movies, reading and of course, spending time with her family and friends.
