Dr. Trieu Ton

Dr. Trieu Ton attributes his success to hard work, commitment to his clients and family support. 

We all love stories about the self-made man and the American dream. You can come to this country with just the shirt on your back and have the opportunity to be successful. Dr. Trieu Ton, an Oakley dentist and owner of Autumn Lake Dental, is living that dream. At just 30 years old, the dentist and entrepreneur is living proof of the journey to success.

“My parents immigrated to the U.S. as refugees from Vietnam in the early 1980s and emphasized to us the meaning of hard work and the importance of education and giving back to the community,” Ton said.  

Hard work led Ton to UC Davis and eventually to UC San Francisco’s School of Dentistry. After graduating from dental school, he accepted a three-year position at Ko’olauloa Community Health Center in Hawaii where he provided dental care to the underprivileged community. He was later appointed as dental director of the program. He helped organize a school-based dental center and also volunteered at a local hospital, treating the dental needs of bed-bound patients.
