About Our Practice
Meet the Dentists
Dr. H.T. Tran
Dr. Tran first came to the U.S. in 1975 when she was 9 years old, as Huong Thi Van Tran and grew up in Longview, Washington. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Biology from St. Martin's College in Lacey and graduated from the University of Washington Dental School in Seattle. She has been in private practice in Washington state ever since, and has spent the past 13 years right here in Renton.
Dr. Tran has also trained at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, one of the top training centers for Cosmetic Dentistry in the County. Her advanced training in dentistry includes many cosmetic procedures such as porcelain veneers and dental implants.
She has dedicated her practice to providing the tools and the technology to improve your smile, easily and comfortably, and to giving you the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
In her free time, she enjoys taking long walks, reading and spending time with her two daughters and her husband John, taking short trips around the area.
Dr. Justin Courtney
Dr. Courtney was born just outside of Washington DC and grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. His parents still live in Iowa and he has a sister who lives in New York City and works for the accounting firm of Price Waterhouse Cooper.
Dr.Courtney, attended Luther College in Decorah, Iowa for his undergraduate degree and then went on to Indiana University for dental school. He likes hiking, camping, mountaineering, skiing, snowboarding and photography and was drawn to Washington for its many outdoor activities and beautiful landscape. He moved to Seattle 5 years ago and has definitely enjoyed making it his home.
While practicing as an associate dentist, he searched for the perfect practice to call his own and finally found it here at Renton Gentle Dentistry! He looks forward to meeting all of you personally and providing you with excellent care for many years to come.
"Prior to coming to Dr. Tran's office, I had serious dental phobias, resigning myself to truly believe there is no such thing as a 'pleasant' dental visit. However, this has been an amazing experience since day one. The staff makes you feel like family. Dr. Tran is a gentle, compassionate and highly skilled professional. I now enjoy each visit. Thank you."
