Meet Our Dentists

Dr. Trung Ngo

General/Cosmetic Dentist

Dr. Trung Ngo was born and raised in the heart of the midwest in Indianapolis, Indiana. He grew up a huge sports fan and attended Indiana University at Bloomington for undergrad. Majoring in biology, he graduated and decided to further his education with his Masters in biology at Purdue Indianapolis. After completing his Masters in 2000, he decided to relocate to sunny California to figure the next step in his life. One of the things he looked into was the dental profession, and he volunteered at a free clinic in Share Our Selves in Costa Mesa. He liked the idea that it combined his passion for art with the ability to help people. At that clinic he met another volunteer, his friend and now practice partner, Derick Nguy, and the rest you can say is history.

Fast forward almost 20 years and Dr. Ngo has graduated with a degree in hygiene and another in dentistry at the prestigious University of Southern California. He was part-time faculty at USC from 2004 through 2010. He met and became an associate for Dr. Dana Rockey and worked with him until Dr. Rockey handed the practice over to Dr. Ngo. Continually striving to get better, he and his team take continuing education to be on the current edge of dental technology. With a team of Dr. Derick, the best hygienists around and a caring team, Mountainside Dental Group caters to giving patients dental therapy with thought and care.

Dr. Ngo is an adoring husband and doting father. He loves sports, fantasy sports, collecting sports memorabilia, traveling, art, and considers himself an amateur “foodie”.

Dr. Michelle Ho

She has volunteered in dental care events such as CDA Cares, Care Harbor, Mission of Mercy, Global Dental Brigades and more to provide free dental services to communities in need. She also loves to help our four-legged friends, having volunteered with local humane societies by providing care for dogs in shelters and fostering kittens awaiting their “furever” homes.   

Dr. Michelle is a mother to her infant daughter and three cats, a wife to her high school sweetheart, a part-time runner, and a full-time Disney fanatic. She also admits to being a board game nerd, a lifelong bookworm, an adventurous foodie, a decent home cook and baker, a loyal Los Angeles Lakers fan, and a movie and TV buff.
