Adela says Dr. Dunn makes her laugh almost every day with his funny voices, impressions and many jokes. She laughingly recalls many years spent watching soaps during their lunch hour and shushing anyone who dared to talk during “The Bold and the Beautiful.” She especially enjoys hearing the laughter in the office as we tend to get silly near the end of the day. Adela loves being a part of the ADCLC family, and we know our patients are thankful that she is!

I'm Ashley and I grew up in rural North Texas. I earned my bachelor of science degree in Dental Hygiene from Texas Women's University in 2002. I'm the mother of 4 beautiful daughters ! We enjoy traveling, hiking, gardening, cooking, baking and spending time on our North Texas farm with family. I enjoy treating each patient with personalized care for their own needs.
Joining Dr. Dunn's team in November 2023, Han brought not just enthusiasm, but a genuine passion for building close-knit environments. While the welcome work-life balance was attractive, it was the patients who truly won her heart. Witnessing their journeys to better health, their blossoming confidence – that was a reward beyond measure.
But Han's world extends far beyond the practice walls. Shaped by Vietnamese traditions, Oregon's charm, and Texas' warmth, her diverse experiences have instilled a unique, global perspective. This deep appreciation for cultural nuances and life's "flavors" – both literal and metaphorical – shines through in every interaction.
When the day's work is done, Han's passions take center stage. In the kitchen, she conjures up sweet treats that warm hearts and spirits, just like her patient care. But nature also calls, offering invigorating hikes and a chance to recharge. Traveling with her husband, a dedicated hospital programmer, they explore new cultures and cuisines, enriching their lives in countless ways.
Back home, playful antics and furry cuddles await, courtesy of her adorable Corgi and Cavachon. Yet, her heart finds its deepest inspiration in her parents. Their unwavering love and sacrifices fuel her every step, evident in her achievement as a first-generation university graduate.
Guided by the motto "Always do your best. In God, we trust," Han embodies commitment in all she does, both personally and professionally.

Tram made the perfect addition to the ADCLC family in 2021 when she joined us as a dental assistant. She, Dr. Dunn and Adela have such fun talking and laughing. Dr. Dunn constantly amuses her with his silly jokes and quips. She loves having a job that combines so much light-heartedness and laughter in the office with an opportunity to use her amazing organizational and artistic skills.
Tram’s talents do not end at the office. She is a classically trained pianist and makes amazing floral arrangements. She loves making do-it-yourself projects for home and for gifting.
Tram married her sweet husband Joe in 2019. They are self-proclaimed homebodies, but they definitely enjoy occasional travel and camping. They have an 11-year-old Boston Terrier fur baby boy named Ozzy, who loves mugging for the camera in Tram’s many pictures and videos of him. Tram, Joe and Ozzy can be found playing at the park almost every weekend.
Before she was born, Tram’s parents emigrated from Vietnam to Japan, where she grew up. When she was only 18 years old, she came to the United States by herself. Adapting to a new environment and culture, as well as learning English from scratch, was very difficult. Tram is proud of the determination her parents instilled that enabled her to establish a new life for herself. We are just thrilled that she is here with us, as are many of our patients!
