Dr Stephanie Tran - Endodontistby Jabir Kazi
Hi Dental friends of Instagram! My name is Stephanie Tran @her_holiness_the_pulp and I am an endodontist in private practice in New York, USA.
This is my first year of specialty practice, but I've been practicing dentistry for almost six years. I love what I do because dentistry truly combines art and science, surgery and medicine all into one field!
My path to becoming an endodontist is kind of an interesting one with a variety of experiences before going into specialty. I completed an accelerated dental program, obtaining my bachelor's and DDS from @universityofthepacific @dugonischool in five years, then I did a GPR for one year, general dentistry private practice for two years, all before going into post-graduate residency specialty training in endodontics.
I had always like endo even in dental school, but at that time I also liked everything else about dentistry. My additional GP background increased my experience in comprehensive dentistry and diagnosis, acute trauma and infection management, and surgery skills, all which solidified my passion for endodontics. I practice full-time, and in my free time I love trying new restaurants, traveling, and hanging out with my adorable dog Mango! You can follow him at @mangosteenthecorgi.
For anyone in dental school or private practice, my advice to you is just be a sponge! Keep absorbing information and skills, learning as much as you can, and striving to improve. We are in a great profession where we get to help improve the health and happiness of our patients.
If you aren't sure if you want to specialize or not, don't worry about figuring it out right away. The more you learn and experience will not only help you figure it out, but also just just make you a stronger practitioner whatever you decide! Feel free to DM me if you have questions about school, residency, practice, etc. Thanks for reading, Cheers! .
