Brighter Way Institute, now celebrating 20 years of providing comprehensive oral health care for vulnerable and uninsured patients welcomes Dr. Thuy Ngo, who specializes in treating developmentally disabled children and adults.
Dr. Ngo, a longtime Valley resident is among an exclusive group of dentists in her field will be on-site at least once a week. “Dr. Ngo’s immense and respected skills allow us to provide critical oral health services including full mouth reconstruction with the full range of sedation services to a highly vulnerable population, particularly children needing specialized care, at Brighter Way Parsons Center for Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics” said Brighter Way Institute Founder and CEO Kris Volcheck. 75 percent of the services provided through Brighter Way Institute’s dental clinics and mobile unit are for underserved children.
“My practice was exceptionally busy and I thrive on that energy,” Dr. Ngo said. “When I sold it, I knew I wanted to give back to the community in a very big way. I’ve been involved with many nonprofits, helping veterans, children and less fortunate adults both locally and internationally and I thought ‘who would be better to work for and where would be a better place to work than for my friend, Kris Volcheck.’”
In 2019, Brighter Way served more than 11,000 individuals and hopes to continue to thrive and transform more than smiles in 2021.
