Dr. Minh Dau
Dr. Dau went to college at Willamette University in Salem, OR. where he met his future educator and anthropologist wife, Audrey. Dr. Dau and wife frequently travel to Central America, Southeast Asia and Audrey’s native country, France for adventure-filled vacations and cultural trips.
Praised by friends and family for his excellent cooking skills, Dr. Dau is at his best in the kitchen where he’ll spend hours experimenting and improving dishes from around the world. Foodist, wine connoisseur and talented dancer, Dr. Dau puts much pride and passion into his multi-sensorial hobbies. At home, he is always entertaining guests with stories and jokes, and readily engages young and old on a broad range of news and topics of interest to his guests, so much that he carries the title at home of “pockets of knowledge.”
Dr. Dau received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Columbia University in the City of New York and his Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study at Boston University. After a long stint on the East Coast, he is happy to be close to family again. At Smiles 4 Kids, he continues to provide the best possible care to all of his patients and make them feel comfortable and at home in the dental office. Any child knows that Dr. Minh will make them laugh and that being at the dentist will always be a positive experience.
Dr. Landon King
Dr. Landon King was born in Ogden, Utah. While growing up he spent most of his childhood playing ice hockey. He was fortunate enough to play for different ice hockey teams throughout the country, including Texas and New York. After living abroad, Dr. King settled down in the Pacific Northwest. He fell in love with the rain of the Northwest and has called it his home ever since.
Dr. King received his dental degree from the University of Washington’s School of Dentistry. Before dental school, he graduated with Magna Cum Laude from Washington State University with a degree in Biology as well as being enrolled in the Honors College. Dr. King always has his patient’s interest at heart and truly enjoys what he does to help his patients have a fantastic experience. He is a very detail oriented person and loves helping all his patients feel at ease.
Dr. King’s favorite sport is ice hockey and he is always watching games on television. His second favorite sport is golf and try’s to play whenever it’s not raining! He is an avid hiker and will routinely find himself outdoors looking for the next trail to hike. He also enjoys jogging and cycling.
Dr. Nick DeLisle
Ready for a new experience, he moved to San Diego and attended the University of San Diego where he received his B.S. in Biochemistry. Through college, Dr. Nick spent his summers commercial salmon fishing in Alaska; it was a tough job that taught him the value of hard work and discipline. After soaking up the sun in SoCal, Dr. Nick moved to Las Vegas where he attended Dental School at UNLV. In dental school, he met his future wife and fellow dentist Dr. Andrea. They both graduated in the same class and received their Doctorate of Medicine in Dentistry.
Dr. Nick loves kids and has provided dental care exclusively to infants, children and teens for the past few years. He enjoys building relationships with his patients and believes it is important to listen while keeping their oral healthcare needs as his primary focus. He is dedicated to creating a lifetime of healthy smiles.
Recently married and ready for a change, Dr. Nick decided to head back home to his roots in Washington, where he and his wife settled in Olympia. On his free time, Dr. Nick enjoys the great outdoors. You can find him camping, running (maybe training for another marathon) or hiking through hidden trails. Traveling is also a passion, having been to such destinations as Kenya in Africa (for a dental mission trip), Bali, Colombia, Brazil, Morocco, Egypt, Greece, Mexico and all over Europe. Up and coming trips on the wish list include: The Inca Trail in Machu Pichu, Tanzania (to hike Mt. Kilimanjaro), Patagonia, Scotland, Australia, (or anywhere in the world really.) He also loves to scuba dive and has become advanced open water certified in the past year.
Dr. Andrea Eslava
Dr. Andrea was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia and moved with her family to Atlanta, Georgia when she was eight years old. She received her B.S in Biology followed by a Master’s in Environmental Microbiology from Georgia State University. Starting at the age of eighteen and all through college, Dr. Andrea worked at a dental office, where her passion for dentistry developed. She continued her dental training at UNLV School of Dentistry in Las Vegas, where she graduated with a Doctorate of Medicine in Dentistry and was awarded for her clinical achievements and dedication to community service. She met her husband, Dr. Nick in dental school and after he proposed, her and her two Chihuahuas agreed to adopt him into the family.
Her passion and focus has always been creating beautiful smiles. Dr. Eslava takes pride in putting her patients as a top priority and providing them with the best dental care and customer service. Dr. Andrea strives to practice the way she tries to live her life: by treating everyone the way she would like to be treated – with respect, honesty, and giving her best quality of work.
After working and enjoying the glam life of Las Vegas, Dr. Andrea decided to follow her husband back home to Washington and has found it to be very beautiful and peaceful. When she’s not working, you can find her saving any stray animal she can find, planning her next world adventure, or doing karaoke into the TV remote. Dr. Andrea is an avid animal lover. She has two rescue Chihuahuas and would have 20 more dogs if Dr. Nick would let her. She loves to travel and hopes to travel to as many countries as possible. She also loves to read, work out and dance.
