Dentistry has been Dr. Do’s passion since her college days at UCSD. She was inspired by a homeless woman who expressed her desire to take care of her teeth. From that point onward, Dr. Do knew that she had a calling to perform dentistry for the underprivileged in her community and for citizens of other countries with little or no access to modern dental care. Since 2000, she has served in various countries such as Mexico, Peru, Bolivia, Guatemala, Honduras, Papua New Guinea, and Haiti.
Dr. Do has been featured in the California Dental Association newsletter for her animated children’s educational DVD. Her Toothtales DVD has received numerous accolades, including first place for ‘People’s Choice’. The dental series now has three episodes. Dr. Do has been featured several times on the Emmy Award-winning show The Doctors, performing various dental procedures. Currently, she has three dental commercials on air and hopes to continue to reach out to the community through various media. She has also published many journal articles and been featured in multiple dental magazines. Currently, she serves as president-elect for the Orange County Dental Association. Dr. Do is an active member of the ADA, CDA, OCDS, WCLI, and AAPD.
Dr. Do practices in Costa Mesa and has been at her current practice for the past 15 years. She is a general dentist who treats patients of all ages. Her focus is laser dentistry, the technology that has helped transform many high-anxiety patients.
In her spare time, Dr. Do enjoys spending time with family and friends, biking, traveling, and arts and crafts.
