Dr. Kim-Vy Pham is originally from Saigon, Vietnam. She moved to Las Vegas when she was 7 years old. She attended Clark High School and finished her undergraduate degree in biology from UNLV. She then continued to UNLV School of Dental Medicine and received her degree.
Dr. Pham worked full-time as a manicurist and aesthetician all through school. Her pursuit in dentistry started when she met her husband, Dr. Marquez, in their undergraduate program. She always enjoyed working with her hands, has great attention to details, and wanted to use her skills to be able to help people.
“That’s great! Dentistry can satisfy all those criteria,” her husband said. Through his support and guidance, they both worked toward their career goals. They were fortunate to both get accepted into UNLV dental school at the same time and were able to go through a very stressful period in their life together.
On a personal note, she also loves spending time with her husband and 2 sons. She loves to travel, watch movies and TV shows, and fashion. She also likes to practice singing.
