I have been going to Dr. Tram Lyna Vu, ever since she took over the dental practice from my previous dentist, in the same office location. My experience has been nothing but, positive with her. She always makes me feel like I am her only patient, and takes her time to ask questions of me. Dr. Vu is very detailed, and I say this only because she takes her time to fully check me until she feels it’s okay to let me leave. This has happened every time I come in for my cleaning, which is every six months. Sheila, who takes care of my dental cleaning needs is very thorough as well personable. The office staff, both Katie, and Sara, are very personable as well as taking care of the office in a professional manner. I have been very pleased with the professionalism of their whole dental staff. I will be returning in six months for my usual visit. The funny thing about life, is that as you get older the professionals that take care of you seem to get younger. Maybe it’s just me!.

I have been getting my dental care here for several years. The experience has always been top notch, from arrival to departure. The care is thorough, from the cleanings to the exams, and they do not upsell unnecessary things. My hygienist Sheila does a great job and educates me on things I need to improve. Dr Vu examines me and follows up on any previous issues I had without fail. The cost is reasonable (a year of care has cost me less than a year of dental of insurance would have!) I highly recommend Uptown Smiles Dentistry.

A quality dental practice. The whole experience was relaxed and pleasant, with nice rooms and euipment, the ladies at the front are great, and Dr. Vu does excellent work in a friendly, and knowledgeable way. They even managed to fit me in last minute for my last appt. during a busy day. Great place.

Dr. Vu is very pleasant, personable and thorough! She really took the time to explain my current dental situation, possible causes for my issues, things to be more aware of and what I can do now to help my situation. I really appreciate the care that she gives. Everyone in the office is so pleasant. I love going there!

Our family loves Uptown Smiles! The staff are extremely friendly and caring, and it is so easy to get an appointment. We have been going for years and have never had a bad experience. I highly recommend this dentist’s office. Our son recently had his wisdom teeth taken out, in office, and it all went smoothly.

Wow! I have never felt more comfortable and assured of quality services than when I was in the dental chair of Dr. Tramm Lyna Vu and expert hygienist Sheilagh. Three times now I left the offices with just the work that needed to be done, sage advice, and a remarkable l full cleaning of my teeth. I can truly recommend this office to all for all services from pediatric to golden age.

My experience at Uptown Smiles was flawless. Dr. Vu is the best dentist not only in this universe, but in any other alternate or parallel universe as well. She is gentle, knowledgeable, caring, and she made my time there enjoyable. The hygienist was personable, friendly, and communicated what she was doing all the way through the entire process, and there was no attempt to sell me any other procedures that I didn’t need. I didn’t feel rushed at any point during my visit, and the rest of the staff were both friendly and accommodating as well. I usually dread going to the dentist, but my visit here was totally painless. I’ll definitely be back when I’m due for my next cleaning.

Dr. Vu and her staff are incredibly professional, friendly, prompt and very accommodating! Dr. Vu is very knowledgeable, easy going and FUNNY! My experience here was great. Everything was thoroughly explained and my procedure was quick and painless. I highly recommend making this place your new ‘go-to’ dental office.

As a new patient from New York I was not sure what to expect from this office during my first visit. Dr. Vu and her staff were extremely courteous and consummate professionals. During review of my x-rays she identified that one of my canine molars had indications of teeth grinding that I was not aware of – a condition my former dentist failed to identify. I would highly recommend this office!

I value professionalism and courtesy. Every time I go to the dentist, I want everything to just be right. Here, it is. Same professionalism and same courtesy. The work is great, they take care to make sure I’m comfortable and accommodated, and are always thorough. A question many people ask me when I say I like my dentist is: Does it hurt? Nope. She is really good at considering the procedure and proper numbing. Highly recommended!

Emily B. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Vu and her team are top-notch! Switching from my dentist of 20 years was tough…but this practice is fantastic. They are always prompt, thorough, efficient, and professional. Best of all, I believe the quality of the dental care I receive here is truly excellent!

I have been to so many terrible dentists that I’m practically phobic of dental work and avoid going as much as necessary. I’ve been overcharged in the past and also told I needed procedures that were unnecessary. I truly appreciated Dr. Vu’s honesty and integrity. She and her staff went over my xrays and carefully explained the findings. They described what work needed to be done and why and what was necessary/unnecessary at this time. I felt reassured knowing the reasoning behind their decisions given my horrible past experiences. During my cleaning, they used a cavitron (spelling?) which was nice because the water came out warm!! I have sensitive teeth and absolutely hate cold water blasting on my sensitive teeth. The work they did was the gentlest I have experienced. They also took their time and didn’t rush, constantly checking on my comfort level. My husband got a tooth cleaning that lasted 2 hours because they were doing an incredibly thorough job (he hasn’t seen a dentist in years and had calcified plaque build up). Given the the depth of cleaning he needed, they applied a numbing gel every 15 minutes. I’ve never been to a practice that emphasizes quality over quantity. I’m very happy with my experience and will surely return and refer friends. Overall, fantastic doctor and incredibly friendly, genuine staff. Dr. Vu looks really young but she’s very knowledgeable and professional, so rest assured if that is something you worry about. Her office is beautiful and clean, and her equipment looked updated and state-of-the-art. Great experience!! When younger, I would go to docs who were available, but now that I am able to choose, I am so happy to find a doctor that I can trust!!!

This place is very clean and modern. The staff was friendly and professional. During my root canal procedure, Dr. Vu explained each step to me and asked me how I was doing to make sure that I was comfortable. I almost felt like no pain at all which was quite surprising comparing to my past experience with other dental office. At the end she even showed me the final result using the x ray image and followed up on me after a couple of days. Overall I had a wonderful experience, highly recommend this place to everyone!!

I have been a patient of Dr Vu for many years. She is the most professional, kind, and trusted dentist. I have a fear of going to the dentist because my teeth are very important to me and one bad dental visit can lead to life long consequences. Dr Vu is extremely gentle and thorough. I completely trust and appreciate Dr Vu, and highly recommend Dr Vu to anyone.

Great experience! I have been going to the same dentist for 25 years and it was time for a change. I was very impressed with the cleanliness and and how modern all of the equipment is. It was also a revolutionary cleaning for me, Tram showed me that a great cleaning doesn’t have to hurt! I could not be happier with the service.

It just feels good to visit this dental office, from the greeting of Sarah, the comfortable and thorough cleaning from Sheila, Katie’s gentle helping hands and especially Dr Vu’s tender but thorough exam. Never looked forward to visiting my dentist until I found this group of exceptional specialists!

I had some cosmetic work done by Dr. Vu (veneers) and it turned out beautifully! Dr. Vu has gone out of her way to perfect the look and I have received many compliments. I have gone to Dr. Vu since she bought the practice from the Hanhila team and she has continued to provide the same quality dental care that Dr. Mark and Dr. Bridget Hanhila did. In general the staff is extremely knowledgeable and courteous. I highly recommend this practice.

I have been a patient of Dr Vu for many years. She is one of the most gentle, caring, precise and knowledgeable dentists I know. The office is pristine and the staff are very good at what they do. Everything from Check in to check out went very smooth. I highly recommend Dr Vu’s Office.

I had such a great experience with the staff as well as the Dr. who took great care of me and my concerns with my teeth. Not only was the front office staff very friendly and warm, the hygienists were very welcoming and personable. If anyone is looking for a really great, local and welcoming dentistry, I highly recommend giving these guys a try!

I have been going here many years now and have sent friends and family. They are wonderful from the sweet charming office girls to the wonderful, gentle, kind, THOROUGH hygienists and the very knowledgeable dentist. For a while I was going to a dentist that was very good but seemed to push a lot of extra procedures (cosmetic). Here, they let YOU express an interest and then explain the options. They are my FRIENDS!

I had a big chip break off my tooth during breakfast. I called the office for a same day appointment and by 1:30pm I had a temporary crown with no pain during the procedure nor when the numbness wore off. Dr. Vu puts in the local anesthesic so gently I never felt a poke at all. Very grateful they made an effort to work me in the same day my tooth went bad!
