The brief descriptions below are designed to familiarize you with our staff’s training, professional credentials and work experience.

Dr. Huy Nguyen DDS

I was born in 1972 in South Vietnam.  My father died in the Vietnamese War fighting against the communist North Vietnam army.  My mother and I tried many times to escape Vietnam after the United States withdrew in 1975.  We finally succeeded in 1979 on the cargo ship Skyluck.  The British government in Hong Kong accepted us as refugees and we were eventually granted entry into America in August 1979 to Houston.

After graduating from Texas A&M, I attended the University of Texas School of Dentistry, graduating in 2000. " I love practicing dentistry because it helps people so much by improving their health, confidence and self-esteem."

My joys in life are my children, Marshall-12, and Addyson-11 who are both are in middle school.  Our days are full with school, tennis, baseball, friends and cooking for each other.  Marshall is part of Scout Troop 1966 where I serve as Asst Scoutmaster.

Bragg, N.C. he spent the next 3 years in Bad Kissingen Germany (Bavaria Area) until his return to private practice in 1990.
