About Us

About Us

Thank you for choosing Felines Tipton, DDS, Family Dentistry with Love. Our number one goal is to provide you with the best possible dental care in a warm and friendly atmosphere. We feel it is very important for us to develop a personal dental relationship that you can trust. For this reason, we encourage you to become as educated as possible about your own dental needs.

To help you toward this goal, you will find that our team is highly qualified and eager to share their knowledge with you. We also have many resources for you to take advantage of in the way of patient education. As a brief orientation to our office we’ve included some background information below.


Dr. Felines H. Tipton finished her undergraduate studies at University of California Irvine and attended the University of California San Francisco School of Dentistry. After graduating from UCSF in 1996, she practiced in Huntington Beach, CA and at the Susanville Indian Rancheria Dental Center.

Dr. Tipton came to Humboldt County in 1999 and started her own practice. She ‘gives back’ with community outreach and periodic dental missions to the Philippines (see photos). Our patients tell us Dr. Tipton has a soft touch – it really is Dentistry with Love.


As you come in for your visit you will be greeted by our friendly front office team members. They can answer any questions you may have regarding your dental, financial, insurance, billing and scheduling needs. You may also see them at times assisting Dr. Tipton to keep the office running smoothly.

You’ll meet Dr. Tipton with our Registered Dental Assistants working alongside her on a regular basis. Our Assistants play a vital role in your care. They are by your side during all dental treatments, helping you feel safe and comfortable. Dr. Tipton relies on their excellent skills to assist her in offering you the best care possible.


For your periodontal needs, our Registered Dental Hygienist has more than 25 years of experience – and it shows in her gentle touch and thorough cleaning. She offers up-to-date knowledge on the latest dental hygiene technology and education. Her insightful way of educating you on your dental hygiene needs will make you feel good about the part you play in your dental care and encouraged to do the best you can.

If you are a new patient, we are looking forward to meeting you. And for returning patients…welcome, again!
