Compassionate and Professional

Get to Know Dr. Richie Tran

Dr. Richie Tran was born and raised in Southern California in the San Gabriel Valley. As a child with dental issues of his own, he experienced first-hand the power of dental care to drastically improve his quality of life. This sparked his interest in dentistry, which later grew to be his passion.

Dr. Tran obtained his bachelor's degree at UC Irvine in Biological Sciences, his master’s in Science at Midwestern University, and his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) at Chicago’s Midwestern University in Illinois. To offer his patients the best treatment possible, Dr. Tran completed a residency at the prestigious University of California San Francisco (UCSF). There he gained training in areas of cosmetic restorations, porcelain crowns, implants, extractions, surgery, dentures, and root canals. His extensive experience allows him to treat patients from all walks of life. He has a practical and conservative approach and is known for his gentle hands.

Dr. Tran regularly attends continuing education courses to be well-versed with the latest in dental advancement and technology. He is a selected member of a distinguished dental committee in Riverside that organizes educational programs for dentists to learn about advancements in the field.

Dr. Tran has volunteered his time to help hundreds of patients at charity events, and donated to organizations for those in need. He was awarded the Brian D. Stone for his volunteer work and compassion for those in need. He is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA) and Tri County Dental Society.

Outside of dentistry, he enjoys cooking different cuisines, hiking, going to beaches, and doing anything his young son wants to do! He is a big Lakers fan and has been cheering for the purple and gold for decades. Dr. Tran welcomes you and looks forward to taking care of your dental needs!

Your First Visit

What to Expect

The Patient Experience

When you first walk through our doors, you’ll be greeted by our friendly office team. You’ll then be invited to sit down and relax as you wait to be called back for your appointment. Once your hygienist is ready for you, we’ll invite you into one of our operatories.

You’ll receive a cleaning, comprehensive exam, x-rays, and Dr. Tran will sit down with you to discuss the results. If everything looks healthy, you’ll be able to schedule your next appointment in the front office. If anything needs extra attention, Dr. Tran will explain the results and take time to address any questions or concerns you might have, and he will describe any further treatment recommendations.
