It’s not uncommon for Dr. Tim Nguyen to hear, “This is how my smile should have looked all along” once he completes a smile makeover. Dr. Nguyen specializes in all aspects of general and cosmetic dentistry, including crowns and veneers, at the longtime Plano practice Parker West Dental. Dr. Nguyen, a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry, is a Dallas native and Jesuit alumnus. He earned his D.M.D. from Tufts School of Dental Medicine and completed his AEGD Residency at Lutheran Medical Center. He dedicates well over 100 hours of continuing education each year to make sure he stays ahead of the latest dental technologies and treatments.
Dr. Nguyen enjoys all aspects of dentistry and has a special interest in cosmetic dentistry because of its positive impact on his patients. “We are able to return people’s smiles to them,” he says. “Over time, teeth can become broken, worn, or mis-colored, which can lead to a more aged appearance, and whether it’s a complete smile makeover or correcting one or a few teeth, cosmetic dentistry can make you look younger. It’s rewarding to see my patients smile again.”
Dr. Nguyen spends ample time with patients in their initial consultations, learning about their goals for their smiles and working together on appropriate treatment plans. “Whether it’s a consult or a second opinion, patients are genuinely excited to begin the process,” he says. “I always start by asking what they see when they smile—what they like and what they don’t like. What’s nice about cosmetic dentistry is that patients are just as enthusiastic about the process as I am.”
Parker West Dental is an energetic practice where patients feel at home and at ease. Dr. Nguyen works diligently to exceed patients’ expectations, and the friendly staff is expertly trained in all areas of dental care. Says Dr. Nguyen, “Many patients say they feel this practice is more than just a dentist office—it’s like a family, which is exactly what we hoped to achieve.”
