Dr. Pham has also enjoyed serving as an affiliate faculty at Shoreline Community College and Lake Washington Technical College where she served for over three years.

Although she has a passion for teaching and mentoring students, Dr. Pham’s first love is providing personalized care to her patients with the latest in preventative and restorative dental techniques using the most advanced technology. Her practice philosophy is focused on preventative care on both a local and global level.

Whether it be on a remote island facing the Turkish border or the African Savannah, Dr. Pham brings great joy to her dentistry wherever she goes. She is a dedicated member of Medical Relief International and her mission work has led her to Haiti, Central America, Tanzania, and caring for Afghani and Syrian Refugees in Lesvos. Locally, Dr. Pham has been a regular volunteer for the Medical Teams International Dental Van in both Western and Eastern Washington.

Chris coaches golf at Kamaik High School and the entire family feels blessed to call Mukilteo and the Pacific Northwest home.
