Hi! I am Katherine, known around here as Kat. I was born and raised in the area and look forward to seeing so many familiar faces! I have been with Dr Trisler and his team since May 2022 and can say I have found my home away from home. In my spare time, I am a busy mother of 3 where you can catch us in the basketball gym, on the softball field, or assisting with our towing business, Game Over Towing, here in Oak Ridge! I cannot wait to watch each of you transform your smile into the shining and confident smile you all deserve. I have full faith you all will feel at home here as well! As always, thank you for entrusting us to care for you! Welcome to the ETO family!

Hi! My name is Chloe and I'm from Oliver Springs. I have been with ETO since August 2022 and love that I'm beginning my career here! I absolutely love getting to know our patients and enjoy hearing all the stories shared. It's been so rewarding! In my spare time, I enjoy shopping, hanging out with my friends, family and boyfriend with a little extra time loving my cat Oliver!

Hey everyone! I’m Makayla and I grew up locally in Clinton! I started here at ETO in December2022 and have had a blast since the start! I love the atmosphere and family feel at this office. Before I started here, I was a work from home Mom that wears many hats! When I'm not in the office, I stay busy at the ball field with my 4 beautiful children that all play sports with my loving husband.

Hello!! My name is Jean and I recently joined ETO in 2023. Originally from Philadelphia, PA I began working in dentistry in 2005 as a Dental Assistant. I was able to expand my knowledge in dentistry working at the University of Pennsylvania Dental school and then did travel dentistry that landed me in Texas where I met my husband who is originally from East Tennessee! I moved here in 2019 and have loved it ever since! My focus is working directly in the community and enjoy educating patients on Oral Health. You can catch me in my free time on Norris Lake with family, fishing and kayaking or watching my son play Baseball.

Hi, I'm Kelly, Dr. Trisler's wife. Both Dr. T and I are originally from the Atlanta area, but Oak Ridge is truly our home now! We have 3 great kiddos (plus some doodles and rabbits!) who keep us busy with all kinds of activities including soccer and dance! I enjoy being a part of the smile transformations here and enjoy all the friendships we have the privilege of establishing through those smiling faces! The passions in life that God has given me are dancing, running, and just hanging out with my family! When I’m not in the office, you most likely will see me over at the Dance Centre of Oak Ridge where I help teach!

Hey Everyone! My name is Cailey! I am from Wartburg TN and have lived there my whole life! I graduated from dental School in September of ‘23!

I am looking forward to helping each of you achieve your goal with your smile! If I am not at work, you can catch me spending time with my husband and kids riding Royal Blue!

Hi! I am Kaylin, and I was born and raised in Alcoa! I began my dental career in general dentistry and quickly figured out I wanted to be in ortho as my passion sparked from being able to sit in on a few ortho procedures. From the time I started in ortho, I knew this is where I wanted to be! I love that I don't just have patients here, and I get to form a bond and make lifelong friends! If I am not here I am spending time with my family and friends!

Hola! My name is Cindy Silva. I was born in Los Angeles, California but have lived in Oak Ridge since I was 7 years old. I received my General Associates degree from Pellissippi State Community College in April and will be graduating from Dental Staff School in August.  If I’m not at work I’m either spending time with my family and friends, or shopping. I look forward to watching how a beautiful smile can change our patients' lives!

Hi! My name is Briana, and I was born and raised in Lenoir City! I knew dentistry was what I wanted my future to be, and soon after RDA school I found my passion in ortho! I love that every patient is different! I love watching peoples' smiles change and learning something new everyday!
