THOMAS JAMES NGUYEN, DDS
I grew up in the Sacramento and Elk Grove Area. I attended University of California, Davis and went on to achieve my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the prestigious University of Maryland, Baltimore Dental School of Dental Surgery. I’m currently serving as a Dental Director at Sacramento County Jail. Whomever I will work on, I pride myself on being a gentle and compassionate doctor who relates to the fear and anxiety some patients feel when visiting a dental office. Due to my own traumatic experiences, I have really gone the extra mile to create a place for pleasant dental visits. I try to make visits to the dentist as comfortable and painless as possible.
Skill and compassion go hand in hand when providing exceptional patient care. As a dental professional, I stay up to date on the latest advancements in dental technology and treatments in order to provide the most current treatment options for my patients. As a doctor, I recognize that my patients are unique individuals who have placed a great deal of trust in myself and my team. That is just one of many reasons why I value each and every patient relationship.
I love giving back to the community and dental profession as much as possible by volunteering my free time at CDA Cares-doing anesthetics and extractions; Smiles for Kids-treating underprivileged children, nursing homes-cleaning dentures and conversing with the elderly; and at free health care clinic-providing visual exam and oral hygiene.
I enjoy fishing, cooking, watching movies, reading mystery books, good foods, great wines and listening to country music. My biggest strengths are my integrity and my hunger to learn. I have a beautiful wife with four amazing children, 2 girls and 2 boys. My personal quote is, “Disciplining yourself to do what you know is right and important, although difficult, is the highroad to pride, self-esteem, and personal satisfaction, (by Margaret Thatcher).”
