Triny Gutierrez, Orthodontics Class of 2022, grew up in Bradenton, Florida, where he spent his childhood at the beach and under the sun.
Finishing high school, he was geared toward a passion in orthodontics — to do for others what his orthodontist did for him and raise confidence through care. His education led him to leave the shorelines of Florida and move to Atlanta, Georgia where he earned his Bachelor of Science in biology from Emory University.
He then traveled further up the east coast to attain his Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry degree from the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine. Gutierrez feels blessed to have been provided the opportunity to complete his formal training in the renowned orthodontics residency program at the UNC Adams School of Dentistry.
In his free time, he enjoys giving back through mentorship and volunteering, spending time with friends and family and exploring the outdoors.
