Background & Education

Dr. Phillip Ha was born in Los Angeles and grew up in San Gabriel, CA. During high school, he went on a dental mission trip to Costa Rica, where he saw the positive impact dentistry could have on people’s lives and was moved to pursue dentistry as a career.

Like many other orthodontists, he had braces himself. Experiencing a boost in his confidence and happiness after treatment, this inspired him to become an orthodontist. He went on to earn his Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry from Pacific Union College.

Dr. Ha earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Loma Linda University after four years of training. He then completed an additional two and half years of orthodontic education, earning his Certificate in Orthodontics and Master of Science degree in Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics. He then took the extra step to become a diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics.

After finishing his orthodontic training, he married his best friend and wonderful wife, Rachel, and moved up to her hometown of Lodi.
