La Jolla’s Transdental blends quality care, tranquility


Dr. Kristine Tran welcomes you to her new dental practice in La Jolla. She spent two years practicing dentistry in the Bay Area before opening Transdental Family Care in Mira Mesa in 1994 and now has opened a second location near her home in La Jolla.

She recently acquired and renovated the building at 864 Prospect St., now named the Transdental Building. In this new tranquil, relaxed and friendly atmosphere near the beach, Dr. Tran offers attentive, personalized and gentle dental care for the entire family.

This location is also host to Middleton and Associates Real Estate and WJ Bradley Mortgage. It is a very welcoming building that has all the charm of a La Jolla landmark.

The Transdental office offers a unique mix of contemporary styling and fixtures with the quaint feel of a La Jolla cottage. The ocean-view back deck and gardens take you to a peaceful place where you can relax and enjoy a quite moment.

Complete with a private cottage, the grounds are a true statement of La Jolla’s beauty. Couple that with excellent dental care and you have a practice that is unique and poised to succeed.

Dr. Tran received her undergraduate degree from the University of California, San Diego and her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of the Pacific, San Francisco.

Dr. Tran is a member of the American and California Dental Associations, the San Diego County Dental Society, the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American Association of Women Dentists, the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and the San Diego Share the Care Dental.

Dr. Tran is devoted to restoring and enhancing the natural beauty of your smile using conservative, up-to-date procedures that result in beautiful, long-lasting smiles.

When she is not working you can find this La Jolla resident spending time with her two children, or doing yoga, cooking or enjoying the beach.
