Why Did You Decide
to Become a Dentist?

Dr. Tran grew up in a family that did not have access to quality dental care. She was forced to watch from a young age as her parents endured horrible toothaches that made it too hard to eat or sleep. The pain became so bad at one point that her father had to extract his own tooth at home! This gave her a very deep understanding of how essential oral healthcare was, and it became her lifelong goal to help patients maximize their well-being and avoid these kinds of problems.

Where Did You Study
Dentistry?

Dr. Tran completed her dental doctorate at the UTHealth School of Dentistry at Houston, where she received comprehensive, diverse dental training with the newest technologies, such as digital scanning and custom restoration design. She is also certified in Invisalign, nitrous oxide, and BLS/CPR. Today, she is a member of the following organizations:

  • American Dental Association
  • Texas Dental Association
  • Academy of General Dentistry
  • SPEAR Education

Office, What Do You
Like to Do?

She also has a background in dance, loves cooking and trying new restaurants, and travels whenever possible.
