Meet the Staff

Dr. Linh Vu

Dr. Vu
Dr. Linh Vu, DDS, attended elementary through high school in Wichita, KS. She attended college in Dodge City, KS, and graduated from the School of Dentistry at the University of Missouri – Kansas City in 1989.

After practicing in Corydon, Iowa, she moved to Ferndale, WA, where she has resided for over 26 years. According to Dr. Vu, the first time she drove into Bellingham passing the Samish Lake area, she thought she had been lost in Paradise.

Dr. Vu is a multidisciplinary dentist, and she offers a full range of dental procedures and has a strong interest in helping patients keep their teeth and gums healthy for life.

Dr. Vu loves all outdoor activities that the NW has to offer – from snowboarding to wakeboarding, and hiking to biking. She is happily married with two children – Chantelle and Derek, who are both attending college.

Her staff and patients are like a big happy family, and Dr. Vu loves to keep it that way. When walking into Premier Dental Center, you will immediately be welcomed with a cheery, warm greeting.
