The Vision of Bayou City Dental

Bayou City Dental (BCD) was established in 2003.  Dr. Jennie Tran and Kevin Tran had a vision of creating a dental practice that would provide quality dental care in the southeast part of Houston.  The practice is unique since it has its own in-house dental laboratory.  Since its establishment, Dr. Tran enjoys assisting her patients in achieving optimal oral health.  The practice empowers patients that good oral health is an investment in one’s overall health and wellness.


Dr. Tran graduated from The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio Dental School with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1999.  Prior to her graduating from dental school she earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology from The University of Houston.  Dr. Tran has a passion for educating and empowering her patients on their dental treatment needs. During her off-time, Dr. Tran is an avid runner, enjoys reading and volunteers at her children’s school.


Kevin Tran, B.S., C.D.T.

Kevin Tran is a graduate of The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio School of Allied Health earning a Bachelor of Science in Dental Laboratory Science degree – Magna Cum Laude – in 1998. Kevin graduated from one of the very few dental laboratory science programs accredited by the American Dental Association’s Commission on Dental Accreditation (ADA CODA) within the southeastern United States. His artistic and meticulous dental laboratory abilities have garnered many compliments from Bayou City Dental patients. Bayou City Dental is one of the few Houston dental practices that has an in-house dental laboratory. Kevin enjoys a wide variety of fitness activities such as running with his wife and enjoys traveling with his family.
