Dr. Tran is originally from northern California, but he fell in love with the finest city when he moved to San Diego to work as a dental assistant in his uncle’s office. Dr. Tran has been interested in dentistry from a young age when he would observe at his uncle’s practice. After graduating from University of California, Berkeley, Dr. Tran went on to the University of California at San Francisco to earn his DDS and MBA.
Dr. Tran has owned a successful dental practice in Sorrento Valley since 2016, and attributes that success to his ability to develop meaningful relationships with his patients. When you’re at Origin Dental, you’ll feel like family. Appointments are smooth and comfortable because our team genuinely cares about your dental health. We do everything we can to make sure your experience with us is positive.
Dr. Tran is an active member of several dental associations, including the San Diego County Dental Society, the California Dental Association, the American Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry. His passion for knowledge is evident in his continuing education from the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and Spear Education, an innovative resource for research in dental care.
When Dr. Tran isn’t in the office, he’s spending time with his wife and newborn son. He loves sports and taking his family on culinary adventures in San Diego. If you’re looking for a friendly dentist in San Diego, visit Dr. Tran and the Origin Dental team. We can’t wait to get to know you!

Fun Facts: Sandra starts her days by going to the gym before work, and stays active throughout the day by walking as frequently as she can. Her typical weekends include visiting her parents and siblings, spending quality time at home with her cousin, and getting together with old friends, but most of all, she loves catching up on sleep! At home, she likes learning and cooking new recipes and playing with the house cat, Kiki (although she’s more of a dog person). Her current favorite music genre is R&B.
