Meet Our Team

Peter Trinh

Dr. Peter Trinh is originally from Columbus, Ohio. He completed his undergraduate studies at The Ohio State University. From there he graduated at the top of his class at Columbia University in New York City. He then moved to San Francisco to finish his residency at UCSF where he is now a part time faculty member. He is proud to call the bay area his home. "I can't imagine doing anything else. Orthodontics is the best profession because I get to see my patients grow and change into the people they are meant to be. Smiling is universal and shows kindness and confidence. Everyone deserves a beautiful smile."

Sue

I have been a Treatment Coordinator for over 25 years. I worked for a previous local orthodontist and joined the Pacifica Orthodontic team in 2013. I love helping our patients achieve their dreams of having the perfect smile. I love working in orthodontics because I feel I really get to know our patients and their families. In my spare time I love spending time with my 3 beautiful grandchildren. I love to spend time with family and friends, cooking and baking. My husband is a retired firefighter and we love to travel and we enjoy taking road trips in our restored 1946 Ford Woodie.

Alexa

Alexa graduated from College of San Mateo's Dental Assisting program in 2015. She has a passion for working in the Orthodontic specialty of Dentistry because of her own personal journey with braces. She loves working closely with patients (especially kids), building a trusting relationship, and seeing their confidence boost through out their treatment. In her free time, she enjoys traveling and spending time with her family. She loves to stay healthy by hiking outdoors, running, and taking spin classes in order to balance out her food adventures.
