Having resided in Houston, Texas since 1978, Dr. Lam became a dental student of the prestigious School of Dentistry at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. After graduation, she worked as an associate where she was introduced to the world renowned dental education center, Pankey Institute, where she was given the tools to practice “comprehensive dentistry” which involves a holistic approach to the whole system of the mouth as well as behavioral understanding of people to help them achieve their goals for their health, whether it be esthetic, functional or both. It was then that she found her true passion in dentistry.
In 2002, she opened her own practice where she could slow things down and give individualized attention to each patient. Over the years, she has taken that approach as well as many hours of continuing education to provide her patients with “Whole Health Dental Care”.
She continually attends advanced postgraduate dental education and is active in multiple Study Clubs around the country to improve the quality of care she provides her patients.

Dentistry, also known as Dental and Oral Medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity. Dentists diagnose and treat dental issues and help patients develop better oral hygiene regimens. They clean teeth, correct bite issues, perform surgeries and extractions, and perform other duties to ensure that the teeth and mouth are healthy.
On a more personal note, Dr. Lam is the proud mother of twins, Bella and Xander, born in 2007. During her free time, she enjoys cooking, traveling, and just simply spending quality time with her family and friends.
