Doctor Dinh graduated from Riverdale High School in 2002. She then attended Georgia State University and obtained a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree in December, 2005. Following graduation, she served as a nurse taking care of the neonates in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Northside Hospital. She enjoyed working alongside with her team members to teach families on how to take care of their special needs babies. On her days off, she would hang out with her predoctoral friends. She was invited by one of them to visit a dental office, where she found herself surrounded with children getting their teeth cleaned and having braces put on. She enjoyed the experience with the children so much that she decided to go back to school to become a dentist. Doctor Dinh got accepted into the Medical College of Georgia to study dentistry in 2009. She continued to work as a nurse while she was attending dental school. She graduated in 2013. Soon after graduation, she was blessed with the opportunity to work with children at Peachtree Children's Dentistry.
