Meet Our Team
Edward Luong DMD
Dr. Edward Luong grew up in southern California in Westminster until his family moved to Riverside in 1987, where he attended high school and did his undergraduate work. Dr. Luong received a Bachelor's degree in Biology from the University of California Riverside in 2000. He went on to Tufts University to complete his Doctorate in Medical Dentistry, graduating with his DMD in 2005.
In dental school, Dr. Luong was in the Honors Program and received the "Best Hands" award in his pre-clinical class there. He was also a student teacher on the clinical floor and a tutor for pre-clinical and dental anatomy during his time at dental school. Dr. Luong is a member of the Harbor Dental Society, California Dental Association, and American Dental Association.
Before he knew he wanted to be a dentist, Dr. Luong knew he wanted to be somewhere in the health field helping people. When his older sister married a dentist, he got the opportunity to shadow his brother-in-law in his practice, and that's when he knew he wanted to be a dentist.
Dentistry is very detail oriented, which he knew would be a good fit for him because he started building model aircrafts when he was young. As a dentist, he would have the perfect way to work with his hands and help people as a career. He found his calling and began pursuing a degree in dentistry, and the rest was history.
"To see the appreciation in people's eyes, to get the thank you, to get the hug and tear of joy from the patient really hit me, and that is when I wanted to keep doing dentistry, for the love of helping people." - Dr. Edward Luong
In addition to his dental family, Dr. Luong has been married to his wife Gigi since 2009, and they have two boys, Eddie, who is five years old, and Elijah, who is three years old. They also have two pet guppies named Orange and Yellow that they have had since Elijah was born.
When he's not treating patients and improving smiles, Dr. Luong enjoys snowboarding, riding his motorcycle, working on cars, throwing pottery on a pottery wheel, all types of fishing, camping, and off-roading.

Jinky Mae Dental Hygienist
Before pursuing my dream as a hygienist, I was a dental assistant for 6 years working both front and back office. I also previously worked as an office manager. Now, I am a proud graduate of West Coast University, with a Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene.
I pursued my dream to be a hygienist because I promised my grandmother that I would personally clean her teeth for her one day. Although I could not keep my promise because she left me too early, I'm sure she's very proud of me. Because of this, I feel a very strong connection with all of my patients and treat them like family. I personally take pride in changing lives one smile at a time.
When I am not at the office, I spend as much time as I can enjoying the company of my family & friends. I stay active by regularly working out at the gym and doing Polynesian dancing and fire dancing.I also find pleasure in traveling as it has enabled me to appreciate different cultures, savor exotic food and bask in breathtaking scenery.
