Dr. Trang Cao


Dr.  Trang Cao discovered her initial interest in orthodontics  began when  she was  17 years old While in high school, she was hired by a local orthodontist “I loved observing  the transformation of smiles and how this impacted each patient’s life”, recalls  Dr. Cao.  She worked hard and eventually became  an orthodontic assistant “This  experience gave me  a real world perspective of the inner  workings  of a thriving orthodontic practice, and I loved it!”. Treating patients in that practice was truly special for her because she saw how loyal patients  can be over the generations. For the first time she was able to see patients  actually loved being  there because of a family environmenl Dr. Cao remembers, “After working in that practice I became determined to become an orthodontist one day.”

Dr. Cao has lived in Jacksonville for four years. Originally from California, she loves being on the East coast and loves living in Florida because of the lush vegetation, warm ocean waters and friendly people.

When away from the dental chair, Dr. Cao enjoys  long  distance biking, traveling  the new and adventurous places, playing with her two beloved chihuahuas and with her husband, raising their daughter. Dr. Cao is very excited to be working  with the fantastic doctors and staff at Pediatric Smiles and can’t wait to serve your orthodontic needs!
