Dr. Lucas Trerice
Dr. Trerice grew up in Olympia, WA where he was voted “Most likely to watch PBS” in high school. He earned his B.S. at TESC, studying pre-med and giving underground tours of the legendary steam tunnel system.
He earned his D.M.D. In the inaugural class of the UNLV School of Dental Medicine, where he was the founding president of the student research club and earned his 15 minutes of fame as an internationally renowned prankster.
Having worked with children exclusively since 2008, Dr Lucas taught dental assisting for two years, worked with a children’s nonprofit dental clinic for seven years, and is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. He has dabbled in legal consulting, been a professional yo-yo instructor, semi-professional game designer, and an amateur squirrel whisperer.
Dr Lucas believes that kids should enjoy going to the dentist, and being a big kid himself, he knows how to cater to children. He is excited to be putting his many years of experience in caring for children’s dental needs to use in the community.
When not practicing dentistry, he spends time playing and reading with his wife, daughter, and a lazy dog that many mistake for a pile of laundry.
Dr. Edward Wang
Dr. Wang became interested in dentistry during his mission trip in Vietnam as a student at University of Washington. He was fascinated by the dentist’s ability to empathize and soothe patients and skillfully resolve the problem painlessly. Soon after, he began volunteering and shadowing dentists from various locations, demographics and specialties to gain a comprehensive understanding of dentistry.
Dr. Wang earned his doctorate degree from Temple University School of Dentistry in Philadelphia. Although he enjoyed his dental training years on the East Coast, he never forgot about his Pacific Northwest roots. His desire to serve the people back home never abated.
Dr. Wang finds his passion not only in providing excellent dental care, but also building meaningful relationships with his patients, which is created on mutual trust, honesty and teamwork. Having the ability to achieve the patient’s goals and to make a profound impact on their oral health and self-image provides a great sense of accomplishment.
On his days off, Dr. Wang enjoys spending his time outdoors running or cycling with friends.
