Meet Dr. Anthony Nguyen
Meet our new orthodontist Dr. Anthony Nguyen. A former chess champion, Dr. Nguyen is always thinking two moves ahead when it comes to your smile. He once had a taste for the culinary arts, but after seeing how dentistry changed his smile and brought this once shy kid out of his shell, it was checkmate. He found his true passion in helping others find their confidence and self-esteem.
Where did you grow up?
I was born and raised in Stockton, CA
What brought you out here?
I attended dental school at University of California San Francisco and met my wife during dental school. We grew to love the San Francisco bay area and settled here.
What do you enjoy most about living in the San Francisco Bay?
I enjoy the great weather, restaurants, and the eclectic dynamic people that make up the San Francisco Bay area.
Why did you decide to become an orthodontist?
I became an orthodontist because I was a shy introverted kid with bad teeth. After receiving braces and seeing my smile transformation and my increase in confidence, I wanted to be able to impact others the same way I was impacted.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
I enjoy getting to know my patients through orthodontic treatment and seeing them grow and improve personally with their improved smile.
If you didn't become a dentist, what would you have been instead?
If I didn’t become a dentist, I would have been a chef. I enjoy trying to experiment with new ingredients and flavors and the joy that comes with others appreciating your creations.
Do you have any hidden talents or hobbies?
I was a chess champion growing up and enjoy playing tennis.
What's the latest in orthodontics that your patients should know about?
If you're self-conscious about wearing traditional wire braces, you should consider Invisalign. We use removable clear aligners, to move your teeth. You can eat the foods you want, and people barely notice them. You can even take them off for a selfie.
Finally, if you could remind your patients to do one thing, what would it be?
I would remind them to take the extra few minutes to brush and floss their teeth.
Dr. Nguyen would also like to remind you that he is offering complimentary no-obligation consultations. Save $150! Make your move, call 650-273-4309 or schedule online today!
