Dr. Travis was born in Seattle, Washington and was raised in the Shelton/Olympia area. He joined his father’s dental practice in 2005 and is excited to be a part of the Shelton community. Dr. Hackney received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Willamette University in Salem, Oregon. Travis was then fortunate enough to attend one of the best dental schools in the nation, the University of Washington. He received excellent training from a world class institution and has gained invaluable training from his mentor, Dr. Bob Hackney. Experience is an asset in any profession; Travis is very fortunate to have the 42 clinical years his father has under his belt as a resource.
Travis desires to treat all of his patients as if he was caring for his own family. He hopes that all patients understand their treatment and feel comfortable at Hackney Family Dentistry. Dr. Hackney is up-to-date on the latest dental therapies and can provide patients with cutting edge treatment options. Travis continues to improve his skills by attending some of the best continuing education courses and study clubs around the country. He has focused some of this training on more advanced procedure such as implant therapy and root canals. Dr. Hackney works with a team of specialists who help guide treatment planning and ensure great results.
Travis and his wife Katie have three sons, Owen, Cole, and Blake. These boys are very active and keep mom and dad on their toes. Family life is very busy with the boys playing football and soccer. When time allows Travis enjoys skiing and golfing.
Dr. Kyle grew up in the South Sound area as the youngest son of Dr. Bob and Alice Hackney. Following in the footsteps of his older brother Travis, Kyle earned his Bachelor of Arts in Biology at Willamette University, and was accepted into the University of Washington School of Dentistry. Kyle was thrilled to attend UW as it offers one of the best dental programs in the United States, and Seattle is also the hometown of one of his best friends, his 94 year-old grandma Helen.
Dr. Kyle joined Hackney Family Dentistry in 2008. Dr. Kyle sees most of our young patients and takes pride in making dental appointments easy and fun for the many children that we see in our practice. Dr. Kyle is a member of multiple local study clubs and served in 2015 as President of the Thurston-Mason Counties Dental Society. As President he helped form a policy which ensures charitable money raised within the dental society will be donated back to Mason County. In 2016 this action resulted in $1,000 being donated to Turning Point Domestic Violence Shelter. Dr. Kyle is passionate about being involved in the local Shelton community as a member of the Shelton Rotary Club where he is currently serving as President-Elect in 2016 and will become President of the Club in 2017.
In 2009 Dr. Kyle married his longtime girlfriend Kelly. They met while studying at Willamette and continued to date as she completed her doctorate degree in Pharmacy at the University of Washington. Kelly is currently a Clinical Pharmacist in Oncology at Tacoma General Hospital. Kelly and Kyle now have two energetic boys Cason (3) and Grady (1) and a Golden Retriever Jackson (8). When not at work Dr. Kyle enjoys golfing, hiking, and fishing, and is an avid Seahawk and Husky fan.
