During this program, he gained skills in various specialized areas of dentistry including the art of placing dental implants and the intricacies of root canal treatment.

Dr. Lam also values providing dentistry to under served communities. He started his dental journey volunteering at UCSD student-run dental clinics, which inspired his interest in dentistry.
