Dr. Joanne Ngo

Dr. Joanne NgoAs a native of San Francisco, and having lived in various places around the Bay Area and Seattle area, my family and I are now fortunate to call Santa Rosa our home. My path into dentistry began at Lowell High School when I fell in love with science and discovered that dentistry would be a great way to help people. I explored this further at UC Davis, obtaining my bachelor’s degree in Neurobiology, Physiology, &Behavior and doing various dental internships and jobs. Having a strong background of community service, I received the highly coveted National Health Service Corps Scholarship and attended the University of the Pacific, Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco.

Upon graduation, I began my service as a dentist working in public health clinics throughout northern California. By working with patients from diverse demographics in under-served communities, I was fortunate to work on a variety of cases and help others who face limitations in accessing dental care. I continue to work in public health clinics and participate in volunteer efforts such as CDA Cares. After years working as an associate dentist in clinics and private practices in CA and WA, my husband and I decided it was time to settle in a community where I could continue my practice while providing a great environment for family growth. Through some persuasion by my sister, Dr. Tina, we decided to make Santa Rosa our home.

When I am not working, I enjoy exploring the world with my family–from trekking the variety of northern California trails to finding the best eats internationally (ask me about some of my favorite foods that I’ve eaten). I have two sons (Leo and Cody) who love taking in all the family friendly resources that Santa Rosa has to offer.

I understand patients have many choices for dental care so I am grateful to learn about each individual that walks through our door and how I can help them. Through annual Continuing Education courses that keep me up to speed with advanced techniques and resources, and with access to a vast network of dental professionals throughout the Bay Area, I am dedicated to providing patients with the best possible means for achieving their best smile.
