The Hoskins Family

Tracy Roberts Barton - Front Office Coordinator

Tracy Tracy developed a passion for dentistry at a very early age and chose this career path in the 5th grade.

She began her official career in dentistry in 1985 after attending AB Tech and is experienced in both Dental Assisting and Front Office Management. At the front desk, she will greet you with a smile and answer any questions you may have regarding scheduling, insurance and dental procedures. She enjoys going home at the end of day with both satisfaction and appreciation of being blessed to work with a caring, wonderful doctor and staff committed to the very best in patient care in an office where staff and patients are like family.

Tracy developed a passion for photography at an early age as well, and was gifted a 35mm camera for her 9th birthday, which allowed her to develop her skills . Her work earned multiple awards throughout her school years. Her hobby became “more” after high school when people began asking her to photograph weddings and family portraits for them and just naturally evolved into a business after a few years. Throughout this time, she has remained true to her love of dentistry and feels very lucky to be able to enjoy two careers simultaneously and remain equally passionate about both!

After living in South Carolina for 17 years, Tracy is very happy to have returned to her hometown of Asheville and loves spending time outdoors hiking, cycling and simply enjoying the mountains with her husband, their two children and their chocolate lab puppy.
