Dr. Thy Ly is a general dentist with a primary focus on children’s dentistry and orthodontics.
Dr. Ly grew up in Phoenix, AZ, where she completed her bachelor of science degree in human nutrition from Arizona State University. She then went on to the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health to receive her certification in public health and doctor of dental medicine degree.
Her passion in dentistry began at the age of 18 with service to patients as an assistant in her orthodontist’s office and also by volunteering in the local community dental clinic for the homeless. Currently, she is practicing part time as an associate at the same orthodontic office that sparked her interest in dentistry. She also works full time at a non-profit children’s dental clinic serving the underserved.
Dr. Ly’s enthusiasm for her profession is displayed through various continuing education courses which focuses on orthodontics and pediatric dentistry. She believes these specialties are meant to be practiced concurrently.
Her future plans includes pursuing her first found love in dentistry by striving to obtaining her orthodontic certificate and continuing to serve the community with volunteer dentistry.
