I have been practicing dentistry for over 19 years. I graduated with honors in Biology at Concordia University in 1994 and received my Doctorate of Dental Medicine at the University of Montreal, Canada, in 1999. I am also a graduate of Dawson Institute for TMJ and occlusion in dentistry. I’ve continued my education with advanced courses in holistic and biological dentistry, implantology, sleep apnea, and patient care. I specialize in safe mercury removal and ongoing tooth sensitivity.
Holistic approach in treating my patient has been my focus. Our oral health has a crucial role in achieving whole body health therefore, my mission is to be a key player in people’s health journey.
I am an accredited member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), have the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART) certification and became a member of the American Academy of ozonetherapy (AAO) through certification. Also member of the International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine (IABDM) and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID). I strive to deliver the most wonderful dental experience combined with the highest quality of dentistry.
Jennifer and I have a wonderful family of four children: Riley, Madyson, Ethan and Maverick. They are our joy. Our passions are mentoring, helping others, learning, reading, and success in all aspects of life. I also love outdoor activities such as fishing, skiing, and snowboarding and am in fact, a snowboard and tennis instructor
Going in to get dental implants may seem scary. If you have lost a tooth and don’t want to wear dentures, you may want a more permanent way to replace a missing tooth. Getting a dental implant may be the best place to start.
When you visit us at PJN Dental, we assess your teeth and help you recover your smile. Having a dental implant is important for more than just aesthetics. Your dental hygiene will improve with a dental implant and the procedure will give you a tooth that can last for the rest of your life if you take care of it properly.
We will provide you with information about what kinds of foods to avoid. You want to eat soft foods until the swelling in your mouth subsides. We will also advise you on how to manage any initial pain that you may experience. This varies from person to person. Most people will experience a swelling of the gums and face. Pain in the area of the implant is normal, and there might be some bleeding.
In some cases, an acute stiffness of the jaw occurs and you may find yourself unable to open your mouth. Get in touch with us immediately if this happens. Most of the time you will be prescribed pain medication to manage the pain.
Dissolving stitches are generally used so you don’t have to worry about going to the clinic again to have them removed.
As part of the initial process, we will take x-rays and models of your mouth. We will also examine the structures that support the teeth prior to surgery to ensure that you get the best overall result.
We strive to put the comfort and peace of mind of the patient first. Dr. Nguyen has been in the dental profession for over 15 years and has performed numerous dental surgeries.
