Personal

Dr. Vo was born, raised and educated in North Carolina. Outside of dentistry he enjoys photography and sometimes shoots weddings for friends. He also enjoys making short films ranging from comedies to dramas but somehow can’t avoid making movies about teeth. During spring and summer you might find him dripping with sweat on the tennis court or at NC’s crystal coast fishing or digging clams with his friends and family and English setter, Ladybird. You also might find him chasing after honey bees or beetles since he has a strange interest in insects. His girlfriend calls him the bug-ologist. He understands he looks very young and has been known to joke that he plans "to go back to high school if this whole dentistry thing doesn’t work out”.
