While in college, Dr. Tran decided to take a job as a dental assistant for one summer because she wanted to fund a special trip to Europe. While she expected this opportunity to be temporary, she received excellent mentoring during that time and fell in love with dentistry! All these years later, she’s never regretted her decision to become a dentist, even for a second.
Dr. Tran grew up in San Diego and is also fluent in Vietnamese. While she attended college at the University of California in San Diego, she landed a dental assistant job during the summer before her junior year in order to fund a trip to Europe. Unexpectedly, she received excellent mentoring and fell in love with dentistry. Later, she graduated from Tufts School of Dental Medicine, and then she came to our dental office here in Kaufman with her husband, Dr. Lam.
When she’s not busy at the dental office, Dr. Tran enjoys spending time with her husband (Dr. Lam), their two daughters, and their dog Sherlock. Her other hobbies include painting and doing yoga.
