Dr. Uyen Pham

Dr. Pham uses her compassion for others in order to provide the best level of care to create the best dental experience possible. From her humble beginnings as an immigrant from Vietnam, she now strives to give back to the community that has helped shaped her through her skills as a dentist. Dr. Pham has known she wanted to pursue dentistry as a child in order to fulfill this lifelong dream. As her first step, she graduated from the University of Minnesota with Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene in 2003. She provided her dental hygiene services with Downtown Dental for eight years before returning to the University a second time. She now returns to Downtown Dental as a graduate from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry with her Doctorate of Dental Surgery class of 2015.

Dr. Pham is described by many as: compassionate, hard working and loyal, which she believes is key to building long lasting patient relationships based on trust and honesty. She considers Downtown Dental her home away from home, and she returns with much fervor and excitement to provide dental care once again to the great people of Downtown Minneapolis. She would like to extend that excitement and invite you and your family into our home and allow us to help with any of your dental needs.

Outside of work time, she enjoys spending time with her daughter and family, her second love for the arts with painting, going for walks, biking and learning the piano.
