Dr. Vina Lu
Dr. Lu received her bachelor’s degree in Molecular Cell Biology at the University of California at Berkeley. She then moved to Boston to attend the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and graduated in 2011. During her senior year, she completed an externship at the Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. Upon graduation from Tufts University, she worked in Boston as an associate dentist for several years before moving to Houston.
Dr. Lu treats each of her patients as if they were members of her very own family. By focusing on open and honest dialogue, she makes sure her patients thoroughly understand all of their options while helping them make important decisions about their oral health. Dr Lu also believes in the importance in keeping up with the latest techniques, research, and technology in dental care. She strives to bring the best to her patients and community. Dr. Lu is a mother of two—a son named Ethan and dog named Bam Bam. When she's not practicing dentistry, Dr Lu enjoys trying out local cuisines and spending time with her family and friends.
Dr. Minh Luu
Dr. Minh Luu graduated from the University of California, Riverside with a degree in Biochemistry. She then moved to Boston to attend Tufts University, School of Dental Medicine where she completed her dental education and was an active member of various community service organizations.
Dr. Luu has since achieved numerous awards for exceptional patient care as an associate dentist in her previous practices. She has also appeared on FOX CT News twice to educate the public about the importance of dental health and prevention, how dental health affects overall systemic health, and to promote free dental care days for the under-served population and for Veterans.
Being born and raised in California, Dr. Luu has had the privilege of experiencing the culture of the east coast, having lived in Boston and Connecticut for a combined 8 years before transitioning to Houston. She loves spending time with family, cooking, traveling, beaches, and being active outdoors (except for the hot Houston summer days).
Dr. Luu understands the struggles of visiting the dentist, such as fear, financial roadblocks, and time. These hurdles can prevent anyone from achieving optimal oral health and esthetics. This is precisely why she believes in making great dentistry a reality by building a trusting relationship with patients through empathy and individualized treatment plans.
