A believer that communication plays a key role in great dental care, Dr. Nina Tran takes the time to ensure her patients make informed, educated choices for their oral health. “If a patient doesn’t understand why a certain procedure needs to be done, I sit down with them, show them photos and videos, and explain,” she says. “I find that a lot of patients really appreciate that I take the time to talk them through it.” She uses a conservative approach for treatment and always opts for the most affordable, least traumatic option first.
Dr. Tran attended the University of Portland and Oregon Health and Sciences University School of Dentistry, where she graduated with honors. With training in modern, state-of-the-art equipment, she is able to offer: CEREC (same-day crowns); iTero scans, which eliminates the need for dental impressions; cone beam scans; and even same-day partials and dentures for patients. She says the best part of her job is seeing the joy and regained confidence in patients after treatment: “When my patients are happy, it means I was able to impact them in a positive way.” As a first-generation Vietnamese American and fluent Vietnamese speaker, she looks forward to serving more patients in the local Vietnamese community.
