Tristan Hall, CDT
President - Certified Dental Technician
Professionally, he is very passionate about doctor and patient satisfaction, striving daily to make sure the work that leaves Bayou State lab exceeds both their expectations. What most excites him about his work is the direction our industry is going in the digital era. As we utilize more technology in our industry and our business Tristan's goal is to create increasingly predictable and consistent outcomes.
Tristan's understanding of traditional dental technology combined with his ability to adapt to change and new technology has expedited Bayou State's transition over the last 4 years to convert from an analog lab to 90% digital lab.
His goal is to ensure dentists will always have a dental technician to consult with. Tristan enjoys sharing his knowledge and experience with Bayou's clients for overall case direction, material choices, prep design and shade determination. Our clients would say that he has a high standard for both himself and clinicians and will go above and beyond to make sure their work is done correct and in time.
Tristan is actively involved in the American Cancer Society through participation in a local relay. He is passionate about this charity because, like millions, his life has been directly affected by cancer and wants to do all he can to help cancer research.
Personally, Tristan is very passionate about his family, friends, golf and music. He really enjoys spending time with his wife and children, playing golf and playing guitar.
