A lot of people are afraid of the dentist, but not Dr. Thu. She loved going to the dentist so much that she decided to become one. Her journey started in high school when she watched Extreme Makeover on TV. The incredible smile transformations caught her attention. In college, she shadowed many dentists and realized that she had the right skills and personality to help people smile healthier and prettier.
Dr. Thu is a proud alumna of the Kornberg School of Dentistry at Temple University, where she graduated summa cum laude and received the Advanced Restorative Award. She enjoyed volunteering at homeless shelters and special needs clinics to provide oral hygiene products and dental care to those who need it the most.
Despite this stellar academic record, Dr. Thu’s educational experience does not end there as she continues to stay up-to-date by taking many continuing education courses. This dedication to learning will only make her a more well-rounded dentist to educate her patients. She is also part of the ADA, Greater Houston Dental Society, and AGD.
Aside from dentistry, Dr. Thu values family and friends the most. They are an important part of her endeavors and achievements. She enjoys staying active by exercising in gym classes, jogging and hiking. She is considering adopting a dog that can keep her company during her hikes. Please help her decide.
