Annie has plenty to be proud of: from being a first generation student graduating with a Biology degree from College of the Holy Cross, to working in cancer research at prestigious Massachusetts hospitals, to learning the ropes of dentistry and becoming a Registered Dental Assistant. Her love of learning has also motivated her to apply for dental school, which she hopes to start next year.
Having immigrated from Vietnam in 2004, Annie and her family settled in Worcester, MA, where she fell in love with the dental field. She owes it all to her childhood dentist who took the time to ease her anxieties and explain what each instrument does and how they function.
In June 2021, Annie joined the Welcome Smiles family. Her favorite part of the job is getting to know her patients on a personal level and getting to know their unique stories. She hopes to make them feel as relaxed and cared for as she did in the chair, and that they too are a part of the Welcome Smiles family.
Outside the office, Annie loves to spend time with her family and her friend. Her favorite activity is going out to try new foods and breweries. She also speaks Vietnamese fluently.
