Dr. Trung Tran Periodontist / Founder

Dr. Tran received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry in Oklahoma City, which is also where he completed his periodontal residency. He is board certified with the American Board of Periodontology. His work primarily focuses on the placement of dental implants, gum or periodontal disease therapy, and cosmetic periodontal plastic surgery.

Born and raised in Tulsa, Dr. Tran’s parents emigrated from Vietnam in 1975. Once he completed his education, his vision of providing quality, affordable and convenient periodontal care to improve the oral health of patients in the greater Tulsa area drove him to open Tulsa Dental Implants and Periodontics. He believes that everyone is entitled to a pain-free, clean, attractive, healthy mouth.

Dr. Tran is an involved member in many local, national and international organizations, including the American Dental Association, Oklahoma Dental Association, Tulsa County Dental Society, American Academy of Periodontology, Academy of Osseointegration and Southwest Society of Periodontists.
