Dr. Thanh Do
Dr. Do knew from an early age that he wanted to become a dentist. He loved science and always enjoyed working with his hands while making model airplanes and cars when he was a child. Dentistry, the combination of both art and science, was to be the ideal profession when he completed his academic studies. In working towards that goal, he went to UC Irvine where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree and then continued on with his studies in New York City at NYU’s College of Dentistry. He graduated NYU and earned his Doctorate degree in the field of Dental Surgery.
After dental school, he worked with the Karuk Tribe, an underprivileged community, in Happy Camp, California. He has since returned to Upland where he grew up to be with his fiancé and reunite with his family.
