Dr. Minh-Phuong Bui was born in Sai Gon, Vietnam and came to Boston, MA with her family in 1991. After finishing at Boston Latin School, she entered Regis College and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.A. in Biochemistry. Dr. Bui then attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, where she received her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree.
Dr. Bui decided to pursue a career in dentistry at a young age and has now been practicing dentistry for over 15 years. While on summer vacation in tenth grade, she visited her aunt, who is a dentist, and got a chance to observe many aspects of dentistry. She made a decision to follow a career that not only helps people improve their overall health, but also allowed her to incorporate creativity and innovation into everyday practice. Growing up, Dr. Bui has always been deeply involved in community service. In addition to a full-time curriculum at Tufts, Dr. Bui was a member of the Venturing program of the Boy Scouts of America, co-founder of a non-profit dance troupe, and was a news anchorwoman for a nationally broadcasted TV station. Following her roots in community service, Dr. Bui went on to do a one-year Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency at South Cove Community Health Center in Boston. During the residency, she was able to treat an array of patients, ranging from preventative care for kids to cosmetic procedures for young adults to providing supportive therapy for wheelchair-bound, medically compromised geriatric patients.
Since graduating from dental school, Dr. Bui has attended many conferences and continuing education courses, including lectures and hands-on courses about the newest technologies in implant dentistry, root canals, periodontal therapy, and cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Bui practiced in Manhattan with a focus on cosmetic dentistry after graduation and eventually moved back to Massachusetts to be closer to her family and friends. She is very happy and grateful to be doing something she loves day after day in her practice at Lakeville, MA.
When not practicing, Dr. Bui spends time with her husband, two children, and their dog Tank. She also enjoys snowboarding, cooking, and discovering good eats on her travels.
