Meet the Doctors
Dr. Andrew (Khoa) Nguyen
After years of experience working in different dental offices across the country, I wanted to open a dental practice where I could truly put patients needs first and foremost. My goal with every visit is to provide the best level of comfort and service possible. I want every patient to leave with a smile and a good feeling.
I was born and raised in Houston, Texas. Following high school, I moved to Detroit, Michigan to attend an accelerated dental education program at the University of Detroit Mercy. There, I received both my Bachelors of Science in Biology and Doctor of Dental Surgery degrees. This is also where I met my wife, Michelle. Together, we moved to the Bay Area in the fall of 2016.
As a general dentist, I am able to provide comprehensive dental care for a wide range of patients with varying needs. My greatest source of joy and accomplishment comes from being able to help patients. Some of my favorite procedures to complete include root canals, extractions, and restorative dentistry.
When not with patients, I enjoy spending time with friends and family. Currently, most of my free time is spent running or with our two Corgis, Dragon and Kona.

When Dr. Andrew and I first met in Detroit, he asked me, "Why do you want to be a dentist?" My answer was simple: "I want to help people." I am excited to be working with him to open an office of our own - where patients come first and we can truly care for them as we would our friends and family.
I was born and raised in San Jose. I received my B.S. in Biochemistry/Cell Biology from UC San Diego, where I found my passion for serving the community. While in San Diego, I dedicated my time to volunteering with the UC San Diego Student-Run Free Dental Clinics. After earning my DDS from University of Detroit Mercy, I returned to California, where I continued to advance my skills by receiving residency training in downtown San Jose. Throughout, I have continued to serve and give back by working part-time in a community clinic. After some time in the private practice sector, Dr. Andrew and I felt the time was right to open an office of our own, one that would reflect our personalities and ideals of patient-care.
When I'm not with patients, I enjoy soaking up the California sun with my friends and family, Andrew, and our two corgis. I also spend my time eating (or thinking of food), doing aerial yoga, and going to SoulCycle.
