Trapped in a young man’s body with a wise man’s brain, Dr. Evan Tran considers himself to be a great listener. To this end, Dr. Tran strives to understand his patients’ treatment goals and works with them to thoroughly explore how to achieve them. As a native Florida Gator, he chomped his way through The Big Apple for dental training at Columbia University. Not long after, he completed his orthodontic training at Seton Hill University in the small town of Greensburg, Pennsylvania. It was here, that he added the hobby of blacksmithing to his repertoire which also includes skiing, water sports, and computing. In 2016, Dr. Tran moved to Philadelphia to join Rich Orthodontics. He looks forward to meeting you and wants you to know that he will do his best to give you the smile you deserve!
