Top Dentist in New York


Qúy gởi Anh Chị Em
So many friends have asked me to relate the experiences that led me to be honored by the Gallery of success, where my picture hangs in Mitten Hall at Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.
This honor made me both humble and proud. If this could happen to me, it is within the realm of possibility that it can happen to you.
In the early 1970’s I was able to escape by night from Viet Nam. Arriving in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, I took all manner of jobs: busboy, lawn care, farm work, animal care maintenance… If the job was offered, I took it.
Even though I was basically on my own, I never gave up and graduated with a DMD degree from Temple University. So I know it can be done.
I open my office in New York City, the USA in the sight of the World Trade Center twin towers. On September 11, 2001, I heard the first plane hit. Startled, I thought perhaps it had been a small commuter plane. Suddenly dust and debris came rolling the street, and as I looked out, the second tower was hit. Covering my face, I rushed into the street and saw crowds of people running and screaming. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. My mind flashed back to the war in VietNam. I quickly realized that some of my patients worked in those towers, and my body began to shake. I felt helpless and afraid. It’s hard to remember what I did next.
The following day I learned that I had lost friends. As I cleaned up I determined to do something to help the First Responders and the survivors. I would offer them all free dental service as a way of saying thank you for what they had endured and what America USA had done for me. The New York Post and the Dairy News alert everyone to my offer, which was gladly taken up by many. To my complete surprise, I received a letter from President George W. Bush.
During the course of my career, I have been fortunate to meet 3 Popes John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and Francis, as well as the Dalai Lama, Senator Schumer, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
My great honor, however, came on September 26, 2008. When Temple University honored me and placed my picture in the Gallery of Success. I am the first person of Vietnamese origin to receive this honor and the Temple University sent a letter to the US consulate in VietNam, at my request, asking that visas be given to the following so that they could come to the United State to share this honor with me: Reverend Pháp Tông, chief Monk of Huyền Không Temple, Huế, VietNam; Professor Tôn Thất Hanh Vice President of Hue University. With over a thousand onlookers in Mitten Hall, they came to share my happiness.
Above all, I thank my dear mother Bùi thị Dzung, who underwent many privations during and after the hostilities, but was cheered by the knowledge that I was safe and working hard and was trying to be a good person.
I also thank Almighty God for his great favor and blessings.
Good luck with your dreams, young students. Remember your goals can be reached. Be patient, industrious, and charitable. I know that any help I gave others came back to me one hundredfold.
Love and respect your parents and enjoy your youth and its many opportunities.
