Meet the Doctors


Dr. Andrew Nguyen grew up in Southern California where he completed his undergraduate studies at UCLA with a dual major in biology and psychology. After college, Dr. Nguyen moved up north to earn his dental degree at the University of California – San Francisco (UCSF). Afterward, he made his way to Texas where he completed one year of advanced general dental residency at University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio School of Dentistry. During his time in San Antonio, Dr. Nguyen received further training in dental surgeries, implants, and IV sedation. He was eventually drawn by the vibrant beauty of Austin and decided to call Austin home.

Dr. Nguyen strives to be an integral part of the dental profession and is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the Texas Dental Association, the Capital Area Dental Society, and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, where he recently became a fellow.

Growing up in Southern California really helped develop Dr. Nguyen’s love for the outdoors. Attracted by Austins’ beautiful greenery and bike friendly atmosphere, he enjoys biking around the city and exploring new places. He often times brings his camera along in which he enjoys taking pictures and editing.  He also enjoys food, whether that be trying new food or cooking up new concoctions.
