Known as "Dr. T" to his patients, Andrew J. Tringas, DMD, MS, is an Orthodontist, creating outstanding smiles for his patients every day. As a 2nd generation Floridian, he was born and raised in the small town of Gulf Breeze where his value of true quality of care for his patients, combined with the latest advancements and techniques, was instilled. Dr. Tringas graduated from the University of Florida College of Dentistry in 1994 with High Honors, a designation reserved for the top 5% of the class. Dr. Tringas completed his Orthodontic residency at the University of Illinois at Chicago in 1998 where he received his specialty certificate and an MS in Oral Sciences. Dr. Tringas and his wife, Niki, returned to their beloved Florida the following year where he has continued to practice Orthodontics. Dr. Tringas is committed to bringing the latest innovations to his patients through strong involvement in Orthodontic conferences, seminars and study clubs. He is involved with the Dental Society of Orlando, as well as other organizations and charities in the Orlando area. He is highly regarded in the dental community, but most importantly by the family of patients that has grown so big over the past decade and a half.
Dr. T has often said his favorite part of the day is watching his patients see their new smile for the first time as their braces are removed; a proud moment for everyone in his office. In his spare time, Dr. T enjoys spending time with his wife and three children. The Tringas family is very involved with their church, where Dr. Tringas is a past Parish Council President and his wife, Niki, serves as a Sunday school teacher. When he and his family have a chance, they love to visit the beach, play golf and tennis, visit local theme parks, and cheer for the Gators.
