Dr. Luis & Dr. Tori mariusso

Dr. Luis and Dr. Tori met at the University of South Florida in a cell biology class where they were both pursuing their separate dreams of becoming dentists. This common career goal nourished a relationship - they studied together, took dental school entrance exams together, and they were both accepted into the University of Kentucky. 

Dr. Luis and Dr. Tori got married one month before they began dental school. After they graduated, they developed even more skills through continuing education as well as their respective associateships. Now that they have a practice of their own together, they are excited to bring advanced, comfortable care to patients in Farragut.

As your local Farragut dentists, Dr. Luis and Dr. Tori feel honored to use the gifts they have been blessed with to serve our patients and provide support for our community.
