Dr. Melody Pongmanopap was born and raised in Southern California. She received her bachelor’s degree in Molecular Environmental Biology at UC Berkeley. She later attended dental school at the University of the Pacific in San Francisco, where she met her husband, Dr. Truong, through their shared love of community service events.
Following graduation, they lived in beautiful Washington State for several years, practicing dentistry while enjoying Pacific Northwest experiences. After growing homesick, their hearts took them back to sunny California, where the proximity to their family, friends, and the great outdoors drew them to Woodland and Sacramento.
Dr. Pongmanopap has always had an interest in health and well-being, as those values drive her own lifestyle and personal goals. She enjoys providing patients the care they need to achieve oral and overall health, while also delivering confident smiles both beautiful and functional. The artistry of rebuilding a smile and building relationships with patients is why she finds dentistry so rewarding.
When not in the office, Dr. Pong enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking, tennis, and indoor activities such as cooking, reading, and playing board games.
