Dr. Kristen Morris was born and raised in Boise, Idaho. She attended the University of Idaho for her Bachelor of Arts degree in biology with a minor zoology. Her graduate education was achieved at the University of Washington School of Dentistry where she received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2007. After graduation, Dr. Morris completed an advanced education in general dentistry residency in Honolulu, Hawaii at the Kokua Kalihi Valley Medical Center. This is a great community clinic where she was able to increase her skills and knowledge in all facets of dentistry while enjoying the island life on her off time.

Dr. Morris couldn’t stay away long from the Emerald City and returned to the greater Seattle area in 2008. She enjoys all aspects of general dentistry, especially root canal therapy, extractions and treating children. She is grateful to have the opportunity to work in an amazing environment like Mukilteo Dental Center that allows her to expand her knowledge and offer more inclusive treatment to her patients. An important philosophy in Dr. Morris’ dental practice is the importance of building meaningful relationships with the entire family by providing exceptional and quality service. Dr. Morris’ travels include time in the Philippines where she volunteered in a Dental Mission. Dr. Morris likes to stay active and has continued to play volleyball throughout the years on club teams in college and co-ed recreational leagues with friends. She also enjoys Crossfit, being outside or mountain biking.

Dr. Morris is a huge fan of Husky sports, as well as the Mariners and the Seahawks. She resides in the Richmond Beach area of Shoreline with her husband, Roy, her daughter, Piper, and her West Highland terrier, Conan McRumple.

Fun fact, Dr. Tiffany began as a patient at Mukilteo Dental Center and is extremely grateful for the opportunity to have her journey come full circle and serve alongside the entire team at MDC.

As a firm believer in community service and mentorship, Dr. Tiffany has mentored many pre-dental students through their journey to dental school as a G.U.I.D.E.

Dr. Tracy Scott, Periodontist, is a respected periodontist both locally and nationally. He brings more than 30 years of dental expertise to Mukilteo Dental Center.

Dr. Scott was raised in Charleston South Carolina and earned a Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the Medical University of South Carolina. Upon dental school graduation he decided upon a career with the US Navy Dental Corp. This decision offered him a chance to serve our country, as well as gaining diverse clinical experience and professional growth. His assignments carried him to many locations throughout the world. A career highlight was his assignment at Bethesda Naval Hospital called the “President’s Hospital” located outside D.C. Dr. Scott served as Chairman and Program Director of the Periodontics Department at the Naval Postgraduate Dental School. At this teaching hospital, his department was involved in the specialty training of new military dentists. His staff was also dedicated to the treatment and rehabilitation of our many wounded warriors. Dr. Scott’s absolute focus was on helping this most deserving group of patients, but in retrospect, he was the one who benefitted the most by expanding his scope of advanced surgical skills. It was this assignment that shaped his treatment philosophy. Patients first with no second priority.

After many years of military service and too many family moves, his final assignment was at the Bangor base. Having travelled to many places in the Navy, the Northwest immediately captured him with its abundant natural beauty. But It was the wonderful people that sold him on making the Northwest his final home. Dr. Scott is ready to share his many years of clinical experience to the people of this magnificent area at Mukilteo Dental Center.

On weekends, you can find Dr. Scott hiking with his black lab, kayaking in the Sound, and fishing for salmon. During his time off, he volunteers with local charity groups to provided dental care to families in need. He and wife, Michelee, continue to explore this part of our country at every opportunity and to work to become part of the local community.
