Dr. Pham was born and raised in Orange County and is the second-youngest daughter in a family of seven children. The love, support, and discipline that her parents ingrained in her are the building blocks of her core values. Her parents placed a lot of emphasis on living a life of gratitude and using your gifts to help others. They encouraged Dr. Pham to live a meaningful life by finding a career that truly sparked joy in her heart while also being able to leave an everlasting impact on someone’s life. With a desire to shadow her childhood dentist, Dr. Pham became a part-time dental assistant while going to college full-time. She fell in love with the field and wanted to make a real difference, helping patients of all ages learn how to enjoy going to the dentist. Dr. Pham, herself, had a traumatizing experience as a child and felt motivated to make going to the dentist a stress-free, enjoyable experience.
Dr. Pham attended college at the California State University of Long Beach, where she majored in biology and minored in chemistry. She then accepted the Dean’s scholarship and continued her education at the prestigious University of California San Francisco School of Dentistry. Moving out of Orange County for the first time and leaving her family behind was emotionally challenging, but proved to be one of the most valuable growth stages in her life. San Francisco will always have a very special place in her heart but Orange County was home to Dr. Pham and “home is where the heart is.”
She continues to advance her skills and knowledge and stays up to date with the latest dental techniques and technologies by dedicating hundreds of hours into continuing education courses. Dr. Pham has also been a Spear Faculty Member at the elite Spear Campus in Scottsdale, AZ since 2015. With the addition of her new focus in airway and sleep, she is hoping to help patients sleep all night, and smile all day.
Dr. Pham feels grateful that through dentistry, she is able to transform smiles every day and help patients of all ages overcome their fears of going to the dentist. Dr. Pham and her amazing team have been creating an All Day Smile since August 10th, 2010. She is proud to have established a humble, tight-knit community in Fullerton that feels more like a family than a workplace.
Outside of the office, Dr. Pham loves to explore new food recipes in her kitchen and finds a lot of joy cooking for her family and her friends. Hosting events at her home is a trait she picked up from her parents. The endless amount of love, laughter, and friendship that is created in her home is what she believes will set the foundation for raising healthy, loving and confident children. She has been married to her best friend since 2011, and together they have two beautiful daughters, McKenzie and Aubrey. Now that her children are older, Dr. Pham is focused on creating a balance between her work-life and her family-life so she can spend quality time with them and her family and friends.
