Meet Helen Trinh, D.D.S. FAGD

Helen Trinh, D.D.S. FAGD

Dr. Trinh became a dentist because helping others is one of her life passions. And that is what she gets to do every day.  She helps her patients achieve the best dental and overall health, so they can have a happy and healthy life. Dr. Trinh feels that it is a privilege and an honor to be able to serve her patients.  Each patient has enriched her with stories from their lives. Some have shared private moments of joy and tears with her.  She hopes that she has touched their lives as much as they have touched hers.  Her patients are what inspire her to be the dentist she can be each and every day. She enjoys working with children of all ages.  She hopes every child she has seen remembers her as the dentist who gives them hugs and makes them laugh.

Dr. Trinh began her higher education journey at the University of California, Berkeley, where she received her bachelor’s of science in software systems.  After she realizing she wanted to pursue dentistry, she attended the prestigious University of Maryland, School of Dentistry.  After that, she was subsequently one of the few doctors accepted into the University of the Pacific Advanced Education in General Dentistry.

Dr. Trinh feels very passionate about keeping abreast of the latest knowledge in dental science; this is so she can best care for her patients who have trusted her for the best dental care.  She has earned thousands of hours of continuing education.  She has passed the rigorous Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry Exam; very few dentists have taken and passed the hours-long qualifying examination. She has served as a volunteer faculty member at University of California San Francisco School of Dentistry and Lutheran Medical Center. Before entering private practice, she spent almost a decade working as a public health dentist in community health centers.
