Hi, I am Dr. Ng (pronounced Ing). Thank you for taking the time to let me share a little about myself and our practice.
I received my dental degree from the University of Southern California in 1994. Upon receiving my license to practice in California that year, I began working as an associate in private practices. Over the course of 6 years, the associateship provided me with many opportunities to develop skills in all aspects of dentistry.
I first visited the Tri-Cities in 1986 when I spent a summer here with my uncle and his family. What impressed me about this part of the state was the clean air and clear sky! I remember one night sitting out on the driveway of my uncle’s home in southeast Kennewick; I looked up in the sky and could not believe how many stars I saw. Coming from southern California, seeing stars in the summer night sky was a rarity!
Fast forward to 2000; I was looking for a place to raise my young family. Again, my uncle encouraged me to come to southeast Washington because of its family-oriented community. We made the move and haven’t looked back.
Today, I enjoy spending time with my wife and 2 daughters who are at home while my oldest, a son, is away for college. These two girls keep me busy with their school and extracurricular activities. I also devote much time serving in various ministries at my home church in Kennewick.
I am Dr. Sara Thomas. I am a native of the Pacific Northwest, having grown up in Yakima. I spent four years playing basketball and completing my undergraduate studies in Biology at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, CA. From there I entered the University of Southern California School of Dentistry, earning my Doctorate in Dental Surgery (Fight On!). Upon graduation in 2010, I worked in a pediatric dental office in Texas before returning to the Pacific Northwest to be closer to family.
I have been in the Tri-Cities area since 2013. I currently devote my professional time between Harvest Family Dental and Tri-City Community Health, where I am blessed with providing care to special needs adults in a hospital setting. I also serve as adjunct faculty for the Columbia Basin College Dental Hygiene Program and donate time to provide dental coverage at Grace Clinic. I love collaborating with other dental and medical professionals in order to create the best team approach for the needs of those in my care.
In my free time, I enjoy taking adventures with my husband, Jesse, and our 4 small kids. I enjoy being outdoors, traveling, exercising, and crafting.
I am very grateful for the opportunity to be back and settled in the PNW. I have enjoyed becoming increasingly involved with this community and am looking forward to the opportunity to serve you and your loved ones.
