Dr. Tristan W. Hamilton, D.D.S.
Tristan didn't always envision himself as a dentist, which is probably why it took him a little longer to get there than most dentists. As a child he had a knack for redesigning his parents house, sometimes much to their chagrin. In time it was apparent that design was in his future. Tristan followed that intuition to Andrew’s University where he studied Architecture, receiving his Bachelors and Masters degree in Architecture. After practicing for a few years in Washington, D.C. for a high level design firm working on notable projects such as the Las Vegas City Master Plan, Vanderbilt University Master Plan and numerous United States Embassy renovations, Tristan decided to follow his heart to the mission field, building his first church in Costa Rica, then on to Zambia as a medical missionary where he would treat close to a hundred women and children with vaccinations and prenatal care. Following Africa, Tristan’s heart for serving people won out over designing buildings and he ventured to many more countries serving the under-served in Mexico, Belize, and South Korea to name a few. Tristan graduated from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in California in 2009, which shared his commitment for mission service and compassion in the dental field. He has been published for his dental office design work and won the Best Dental Office Design in America by Incisal EDGE magazine in 2012 for his design of his Wilmington, NC office. He and his wife April have a son, Tennyson and daughter, August, and two tabby cats, named Hemingway and Havana.
