Specialties: Orthodontics (Braces)
Education: USC Dental School

Dr. Maung serves as the Director of Orthodontics for a national children’s non-profit organization where USC and UCLA dental students and orthodontic residents do rotations as part of their dental education. “When I think of the definition of community it involves a group of people unified by a particular area or share a common interest.  Each individual at TCDC whether patient, provider, donor, or member we all share the common interest of the dental health needs particularly for those that may not have access. We are a group of people inviting all to join our community, where everyone is welcome. “For me in particular, I joined the TCDC first as a dental student doing a year-long rotation, moving to a resident shadowing a faculty provider, then joining as a provider.  I have been part of the TCDC community for over 20 years.  I have seen our young patients grow from grade school to graduate college, start careers, get married, and so forth but what remains the same is they are still part of our dental community.” --Dr. Vivian Maung
