Meet Our Staff

Our physicians, staff, and partners are focused on the well-being of our patients.

OUR BEGINNING

Our practice has a wonderful history in this community. It was started by Dr. Larry Trivette, Dr. Ann Trivette’s father, in 1963. The Trivette practice was  originally located off of Broadway Drive on Powers Avenue.

Following a change in location, our present building has been located across from the historic Duck Pond in the heart of Fountain City since 1976. In 2007, the building underwent extensive renovations to provide the utmost experience and comforting environment for our patients. This practice is rather unique in that it has provided a patient family for several dentists throughout its existence.

CONTINUING THE LEGACY

Dr. Ann Trivette joined her father in 1988, followed by Dr. Derek Osborne joining in 1998 just prior to Dr. Larry Trivette’s retirement following his long, successful practice. Most recently, in 2013, Dr. Michelle Schmidt joined us as our newest dentist. We pride ourselves in considering our patients our family.

By having multiple doctors on board, we feel our patients have the added benefit of being served by not one, but three practitioners. We want all of our patients to know that, as a team of clinicians, we strive to work together and believe in learning from one another along with continuing our education.
