    Philip Pham, DDS

    General Dentist

    I became a dentist to not only provide health care to others, but to provide smiles and happiness to people. A great smile is the best first impression and should be the first step in overall health. My favorite thing about being a dentist is interacting with different people and doing my best to help better their oral health. On my free time, I like to spend time with my wife and kids, going golfing, enjoying outdoor activities, and playing video games.
