Origin Dental is a new state-of-the-art facility that opened in November of 2016, and is operated by well-seasoned dentist Victor Tran, DDS. Dr. Tran double-majored in Integrative Biology and Genetics & Plant Biology at UC Berkeley. He later received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the prestigious UC San Francisco. Dr. Tran made the move to sunny San Diego shortly after graduation, and has not looked back.

His new facility took a year to design and build, and it boasts a warm and friendly office environment. Dr. Tran maintained, “I want my patients to feel at ease, so we were very meticulous in designing the space to create a comfortable and inviting environment for them. We aim to make dentistry a fun experience and remove any negative associations.”

One of the many reasons patients are enjoying Origin Dental is because Dr. Tran respects their precious time. Appointments are never overbooked, so there is never a wait. Origin Dental is even open for business on Saturdays, and Dr. Tran makes himself available after hours for those unexpected dental emergencies. “There will never be a question of whether or not I am available for my patients,” explained Dr. Tran. “Our patients come first, and we are honored for the opportunity to treat them.”

“I most enjoy seeing my patients smile upon leaving our practice.”

The team at Origin Dental especially prides themselves on utilizing the latest advances in technology. Dr. Tran emphasized that his entire staff is “passionate about the field of dentistry and providing the best care. We as a team regularly take continuing education courses to keep up-to- date with the latest in our field.”

Catering to patients of any age, this full-service and affordable family dental practice incorporates everything you would need from a dental visit. This includes but is not limited to: cleanings, exams, fillings, crowns, bridges, cosmetic dentistry such as veneers and whitening, implants, wisdom teeth extractions, dentures, and root canals.


The main objective that Dr. Tran has set for his new dental office is to ensure that everyone who walks through the front door feels like family. “Our goal isn’t just to treat our patients’ oral health. We also want to get to know our patients and develop real relationships with them and their family,” clarified Dr. Tran. “Dentistry has always been a scary thought to patients, but it shouldn’t be that way. Our philosophy is simple; that is, to treat our patients with care, respect, and honesty. In fact,
I most enjoy seeing my patients smile upon leaving our practice.”

During his free time, Dr. Tran enjoys experiencing new cuisines and traveling the world with his fiancé. He is extremely passionate about making time for continuing education, and is currently on the path to becoming a fellow of both the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) and the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD).
