Dr. Trockel is proud to call Oklahoma home. After completing his undergraduate education at Brigham Young University – Hawaii, majoring in biochemistry and art (related, right?), he then moved to San Francisco for dental school. He graduated among the top of his class, receiving awards and honors for his excellence in clinical dentistry. He then completed a residency program in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, at Nova Southeastern University (Do we see a theme on locations? Always by the ocean!). He prides himself on providing the best care for his patients with the most advanced technology and research available.
Dr. Trockel is first and foremost a family man. He is happily married to his beautiful wife, Allisa (going on 10 years!). They currently have three lovely (and awesome) children, and most evenings and weekends are spent running to and from soccer games, recitals, gymnastics, and other events. Dr. Trockel is an avid outdoorsman, enjoying most all outdoor activities—archery, mountain biking, skiing, surfing (hence living by the ocean for the last 13 years), soccer, and more. Dr. Trockel is so excited to call Bixby home and can’t wait to discover all the fun things it offers!
