Dr. Michael Luong
Dr. Michael Luong is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist. He was born and raised in Pullman Washington, home of the mighty WSU Cougars. His heart has always been tied to the Pacific Northwest which made his decision to attend Washington State University an easy one. At WSU, Dr. Luong graduated magna cum laude in Molecular/Cellular Biology and Biotechnology. His desire to pursue dentistry led him to the University Of Southern California School Of Dentistry.
While at USCSD, Dr. Luong became very involved in community outreach programs that provided pediatric dental services to underserved rural areas of Southern California. His work in these communities naturally guided him into the field of pediatric dentistry.
Dr. Luong acquired his Certificate of Advanced Graduate studies in pediatric dentistry from the Henry Goldman School of Dentistry in Boston Massachusetts. After two years of eating lobster rolls and thick bowls of clam chowder, it was time for him to make his long-awaited return to the Pacific Northwest and back to his family and friends. Without their continued support and dedication, his long journey to becoming a dedicated pediatric dentist would not be possible.
Dr. Pragnya Sheelam
Dr. Pragnya Sheelam was born in India before moving to the United States. She obtained her dental license from the University of Minnesota. She decided to start working with children because she has always had a special place in her heart for them and is her best when she is around them. Dr. Sheelam feels priviledged working with kiddos and creating a positive impact in their oral health.
Dr. Sheelam is a member of the American Dental Association and the Washington State Dental Association. It is her mission to provide the best treatment possible and promote optimal oral health through education and relationships established with her patients. When Dr. Sheelam is not working, she is spending time with her husband and their two children, exploring new places and learning how to do yoga.
