Dr. Teresa Tran Orthodontist

As an orthodontist, I have the opportunity to create meaningful relationships with my patients while I have the honor of transforming their smiles.

Orthodontic treatment takes time and involves many visits. I feel it is a blessing to see my patients regularly and get to know each through the course of their treatment. Whether I am changing the smile of a child, teen, or adult, the individual grows during their time in my care. I love seeing my patients’ personalities blossom as their confidence builds!

I remember being so shy when I was little, always hiding my teeth when I smiled and feeling uncomfortable with my appearance. Receiving orthodontic treatment as a teen completely changed my self-esteem and outlook on life: having a great smile gave me the confidence to come out of my shell. Now, I strive to provide that same experience to each person I have the honor to treat.

Dr. Tran attended the University of the Pacific, where she obtained a Bachelor of Science in biological sciences with a minor in chemistry. She also studied abroad in Alicante, Spain, where she learned Spanish.

After her residency, Dr. Tran practiced orthodontics for several years before owning her own private practice. In practice, she designs treatment to the unique concerns of each patient. Considering the individual’s oral health, bite, function, and aesthetics, she crafts a treatment approach that is efficient, comfortable, and delivers ideal results. Each of her patients finishes care with a good bite, improved oral health, and a radiant smile they are confident to share. At the start of 2022, Dr. Tran moved to Austin with her husband and their two dogs. She is excited to continue to provide the same excellent care for her patients here at Kids Dental Smiles.
