Timmy Vo was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana and graduated from Xavier University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry Pre-Med. During and after his undergraduate education, he dedicated his time outreaching and empowering young leaders through various organizations locally in New Orleans, the Gulf Coast, and throughout the continent through the Union of North American Vietnamese Student Associations (UNAVSA).
Timmy’s passion for dentistry was influenced by his time shadowing dental hygienists from family dental practices within the New Orleans area. Since 2014, he also supported patients in achieving optimal oral health as a dental assistant. In 2017, he graduated from the LSU Health New Orleans School of Dentistry with a Bachelors of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. Through his passion for the profession, he plans to further his education in Public Health in order to work with communities to improve oral disease prevention and dreams to participate in a mission trip in Vietnam.
