I love all aspects of General Dentistry and quality patient care. In particular, I enjoy the personal interaction with my patients and their families. I have a special interest in Orthodontia and Cosmetics, but my greatest gratification comes from not only creating the smile that patients desire but also helping them make honest and informed decisions about their treatment. I believe my strengths are my good sense of humor and my ability to relate to and comfort people of various ethnic backgrounds. I am fluent in my native language Vietnamese. Away from the office, my favorite pastimes include automotive work, home improvement, photography, cycling, camping, fishing, boating, traveling, and most of all, spending time with my family.

The dental care you deserve is waiting for you at a nearby Park Dental.

The dental hygienist asked most of the health questions; displayed the most concern about my overall. Per the standard procedure of the cleaning followed by a brief follow up by the dentist,I was neither surprised nor disappointed by the brevity of the time I spent with the dentist.

The doctor spoke quietly and with understanding for my anxiety and the nurse was reassuring as he tried his best to keep me comfortable while poking at my wisdom teeth.

I do not usually see Dr. Lam but I was happy to try him this time. I was hoping for a little more personal touch (I might have asked to change to his team). He did his job well and it was totally fine for this appointment.

Dr. Ba Lam is a wonderful doctor who sincerely cares about his patients and has honest opinions and recommendations for any concerns I may have. I really like the fact that Dr. Lam makes me feel important and absolutely listens to me and answers all my questions; very respectful individual! I was recommended by my sister, cousin and bother-in-law to visit Dr. Lam and I am really happy I made the switch! I will continue to recommend others to Dr. Lam as well.

Both the soctor and assistant were friendly and were able to answer all of my questions. They ensured my comfort during my visit and made sure I knew exactly how to care for myself during recovery.

he said, and the hygienist said they'd call if the new xrays showed anything that required action. I pretty much trust they would call, but I would rather hear from them AFTER the new xrays were taken and read.... (I understand that he was about to go into 1.5hr surgery --so they were trying to help us not have to wait so long).

The doctor and assistant talked about my teeth while the doctor examined my teeth but I had no idea what anything they said meant. I left there thinking my teeth were in bad shape but I have no idea. I do know I have two small cavities but by there talk during my exam it sounded sooo much worse.
