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 as a teenager. 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 her own patients to help them reveal their beautiful smiles. Knowing that orthodontics was her calling, Dr. Tran chose 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. Dr. Tran went on to complete and pass a rigorous set of written and clinical examinations to become a board certified orthodontist. Board certification is the highest level an Orthodontist can aspire and is one step above a licensed orthodontist.

In her free time, When not giving patients happy, healthy smiles Dr. Tran enjoys spending time with her family and friends, exercising and traveling.

Our Ongoing Commitment to Excellence

Redwood Smiles is a leading pediatric dental and orthodontic practice located in Redwood, CA and we are all about kids! Our practice was designed with children in mind. From the toys and video games in our colorful waiting room to our children themed treatment rooms, we provide our patients with a fun, comfortable and enjoyable dental experience.

Although modern day dentistry centers around prevention, many treatments or interventions are still needed.The majority of dental treatments are carried out to prevent or treat the two most common oral diseases which are tooth decay and gum disease. Catching risks early can make all the difference.

Dental health is important, and it’s important to us that your child feels comfortable receiving the necessary attention to ensure the health of their smile. We understand the dentist’s office can be scary, which is why we take special care to help your little ones feel comfortable on their first trip in.

We do our best to explain to your child what to expect so there are no surprises. During their visit, it is our goal to examine the development of their mouth, including: crowding, appearance of calcium deposits, abnormalities in number of teeth, baby bottle tooth decay, gum disease, TMJ, and signs of prolonged problems such as thumb-sucking and teething. We also like to educate them on proper brushing methods and dental care, and letting them be a part of the process concerning their dental health so that they can develop life-long habits.

Remain deeply committed to developing new and better ways to protect your child’s developing teeth and gums
