Dr. Teresa Tran
Dr. Tran has been practicing dentistry for over 10+ years and was inspired to pursue orthodontics after her own treatment in braces. Having experienced first hand how orthodontics can transform a person’s smile and boost one’s confidence, she is excited to provide that service to our patients.
Dr. Tran attended the University of the Pacific’s (UOP) accelerated Pre-Dental program. While at UOP, she received her Bachelors in Science graduating summa cum laude in 3 years majoring in Biology and minoring in Chemistry. She also studied abroad in Alicante, Spain where she learned Spanish and studied Spanish cuisine. Dr. Tran completed her dental education at the UCLA School of Dentistry. During her time at UCLA, she was President of the Vietnamese Dental Student Association and was able to provide dental treatment to the locals in Da Nang, Vietnam.
Dr. Tran was chosen to represent UCLA in a Dental Exchange program where she spent time at the Universities of Asahi and Meikai Dental schools in Japan. Immediately following dental school, Dr. Tran completed her Masters in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics at Loma Linda University.
Prior to coming to Austin, Dr. Tran owned her own office in the Bay Area where she was committed to providing the highest level of patient care that she plans to continue here in Texas. In her free time, Dr. Tran enjoys spending time with her family, fiance, and friends. Her hobbies include exercising, running with her two dogs (Charlie & Cooper) and traveling.
