Memberships

Dr. Nguyen feels it is essential that every professional stay connected with others in the field, to further their knowledge and abilities. Therefore, she is an active member of the:

Community Involvement

In 2009, Dr. Nguyen began her volunteering work organized by the Remote Area Medical® or RAM, which provides free dental, medical, and vision care to homeless and low-income individuals in Sacramento and Oakland. She restored teeth for people who’d not been able to afford dentistry for more than 20 years. After seeing patients waiting in lines for more than 24 hours to get help with their broken, decayed, and infected teeth, she couldn’t stop coming back to volunteer for similar organizations since then.

Every two or three months, she spends 20 or more hours donating her skills at free care events such as California Dental Association-CDA Cares, the Sonrisas Community Dental Center in Half Moon Bay, and California CareForce. She has participated in CDA Cares and California CareForce providing free dental care to people in San Jose, Modesto, Sonoma, Sacramento, Oakland, Pomona, San Diego, Mather City, Grass Valley, Fresno, Ventura, and Stockton. She thinks it is very important that she can help the poor and unfortunate because she was one of them. Without the kind and generous support of Americans, she would not have been sponsored to come to the United States in June 1990, and she would not have been able to accomplish what she has achieved. She is very grateful to all of the people who have helped her and she wishes to return their generosity by helping others.
