Andrew (Khoa) Nguyen, DDS General Dentist in Sunnyvale
After years of experience working in different dental offices across the country, I wanted to open a dental practice in Sunnyvale, 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 provide comprehensive dental care for a wide range of patients with varying needs. My greatest source of accomplishment comes from being able to help patients. I especially enjoy providing emergency dental care for the community.
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. Ask me how I ran a half-marathon a little over 2 months after completing my first 10K.
Michelle Nguyen, DDS General Dentist in Sunnyvale
When Andrew and I first met in Detroit, he asked me, "Why do you want to be a dentist?" My answer was quick: "I love helping people." I am excited to have our office in Sunnyvale - 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. While receiving my B.S. in Biochemistry/Cell Biology from UC San Diego, I found my passion for serving the community through the UC San Diego Student-Run Free Dental Clinics. After earning my D.D.S. from the University of Detroit Mercy, I returned to the Bay Area, where I advanced my skills through residency training in downtown San Jose. Throughout, I have continued to serve my patients and give back by working part-time in a community clinic. I am excited to be in Sunnyvale and love having the ability to change my patients' lives by changing their minds about the dentist and transforming their smiles. 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), baking, and working out (in particular yoga and spinning!). Ask me about my favorite places to eat or grab boba!
