Meet Dr. Vo
Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry
Dr. Vo has been a Pediatric Dentist serving the community of Madisonville for over 10 years. As a pediatric dental specialist, she has provided up to date dental care since 2008. Her emphasis on patient comfort, as well as keeping up to date with the latest advancements in pediatric dentistry enable her to provide your child with the best quality of care in the field.
Dr. Vo grew up in the small town of Abbeville, LA with 9 siblings. She completed her undergraduate education and received her B.S. from LSU A & M in Baton Rouge, LA. She then moved to the New Orleans area where she began pursuing her dental career at the LSU School of Dentistry and received her D.D.S. She went on to complete a 2 year Pediatric Dental Residency at the University of Maryland School of Dental Surgery, where she received a Certificate in Pediatric Dentistry. During this time, she was able to participate in the Operation Smile dental mission to Hanoi, Vietnam, treating deaf and blind children of a local orphanage. It was one of the most rewarding and humbling experiences of her life.
Dr. Vo has worked as a Pediatric Dentist in Maryland, Old Metairie, and the Westbank, treating children from all walks of life. Dr. Vo has set her roots in Madisonville where she is raising her family and remains a part of the community. She focuses a large portion of her practice to the special needs community as it is very important to her personally and professionally.
Dr. Vo is a member of national and local dental organizations, including the ADA, AAPD, SWSPD, LAPD, and NLDA. She also is on the medical staff of St. Tammany Parish Hospital and Children’s Hospital in New Orleans.
Dr. Vo enjoys traveling, anything Disney, and spending time with family and friends, her husband Dr. Dominick Alongi, an endodontist (www.northlakeendo.com), and her 3 children.
“I have a passion for children. That passion has existed within me since I was very young. I can say that it has brought me so much joy to be able to utilize my passion in pediatric dentistry. My love for making a dental visit “easier” for those with special healthcare needs and their families is my ultimate goal; and my hopes is to make these visits better than they could have ever imagined!”
