Dr. Karen Tritinger-Young grew up on the East Coast as an Air Force Brat. She received her Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Maryland College Park and her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. T has had the privilege of working in many different aspects of dentistry including general dentistry and hospital dentistry. During her career she has been blessed to work with the underserved, pediatric, and developmentally disabled patient populations. Dr. Tritinger makes every effort to continue to grow her dental knowledge and hone her skills by consulting with colleagues and attending several continuing education classes each year.
She and her family moved to Yakima from the Washington, D.C. area in 2009 to escape the hustle and bustle of the ever-growing city and its suburbs. Dr. T and her husband, Robert, have twin girls (who are now in college)! They love all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer and are happy to call Yakima their home. Dr. Tritinger and her family love to cook and bake together, travel, hike, bike, camp and spend time playing with their dog, Lilyblue.
