Welcome To Modern Family Dental
With the leading dentists in San Francisco and our new office in Sunnyvale (formally known as Barniv Dental). We pride ourselves on our high-quality dental work and patient focused customer service in a clean, friendly environment. Dr. Hao Tran uses only the top rated products and works closely with the top dental labs in the area. We realize that your time is important, which is why we never double book. When you walk in, your wait time will be less than 5 minutes from the time of your appointment, and you will have the doctor and staff’s undivided attention. Please do be courteous and provide at least 48 business hours notice if you must cancel or change your appointment time so that others may be seen, and to avoid a late cancellation fee.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. As cliché as that may sound, it holds true with regard to dentistry. It is the philosophy of this dental practice to take our time to educate our patients about the condition of their mouth, their treatment options, risks, benefits, alternatives, preventative measures, and limitations until they have a full understanding and no further questions. It is our duty to provide the necessary information so that our patients may play a role in making a proper decision regarding their dental care.
DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT...
Dr. Tran is an outstanding dentist and everyone at Modern Family Dental is friendly, sincere, and great at their jobs. Our family has been going there for years and Dr. Tran helped us promote good dental care habits with our children. If you’re looking for a dentist you can trust, with a highly capable, affable team, in a clean, modern office, next to a large, free parking lot, close to public transportation with a Starbucks downstairs, you now know who to call – Modern Family Dental.
I’ve been going to Dr. Tran since he took over the practice from Dr. Huira – and I really thought she was a good dentist but he is even better. I’ve had a couple of crowns done from him and they are beautiful. They feel natural and match perfectly. I also really love Linda his hygienist. Can’t say enough nice things about them!
I have been looking for the right dentist for quite some time. Prior to seeing Dr. Tran, I was seeing a dentist in Oakland. The cleaning was going well until she started working on some small cavities and fillings. For 6-8 months after, some of my teeth were getting extremely sensitive to cold food and drinks. It was completely annoying. Her resolution was doing root canal. Not my cup of tea. A friend recommended me to see Dr. Tran and he fixed all my fillings. Back normal eating, no sensitivities and no root canal! I appreciate his service very much. Very knowledgeable and an educational experience. Thanks Dr Tran for you wonderful work!
Part of easing your concerns is explaining what you can expect from our practice. When you are new to our office, we put in the effort to provide you with a positive and comforting experience. Once you have been with us for a while, you can continue to expect the highest level of service. We focus on providing quality dental care, excellent customer service, and a relaxing environment to maintain a lasting patient relationship. We consider your first visit the start of a long-term relationship with you.
During your initial appointment, we will perform various tests to assess the condition of your oral health and to create a dental plan based on your unique, individual needs. We look forward to meeting you!

Connie-RaeI grew up in a small town in Northern Ontario, Canada, and received my dental hygiene education and license from Cambrian College in Sudbury, Ontario Canada. I moved to California and was licensed here in the late '80s. First to Sacramento than the south bay area. I enjoy spending time and having fun with my husband and 3 grown children. (The last one just graduated from college. Yay!) We enjoy water skiing, sailing, snow skiing, and celebrating all of our life events together. I feel very blessed to enjoy my job as much as I do. My favorite part is educating my patients and cheering them on as they move towards healthy long term and stable dental health. I like to use a gentle, kind, and encouraging approach. I have been lucky enough to build some very enjoyable long-term relationships with my patients and their families. I look forward to continuing that!
