Nicholas Quach, DDS

Nicholas Quach, DDS

Owner

Dr. Quach graduated from the University of the Pacific in 2004 with a Bachelors of Science degree in both Biochemistry and Biological Sciences. In 2008, he graduated from the prestigious University of California at Los Angeles with his dental degree. Working in California for a short period of time, Dr. Quach discovered that his passion lies with creating a long-lasting, trusting relationship with his patients, and it is with this goal in mind that he moved to the Rio Grande Valley and opened his own practice.

Our office embodies Dr. Quach’s philosophy that patients should be cared for in a comfortable and elegant environment. After moving to the Valley, Dr. Quach continued his advanced studies through the Texas Academy of General Dentistry, the Seattle Study Club, and the Pankey Institute, all institutions known for their high quality of advanced dental education.

During this time, Dr. Quach also became involved with organized dentistry and served as President of the Rio Grande Valley component of the Academy of General Dentistry as well as becoming a Board Member of Dentists Who Care, a volunteer organization dedicated to helping children of low income families in the Rio Grande Valley. When Dr. Quach is not taking care of his patients, he likes to cycle, fish, and enjoy the beach.
