Anh Nguyen, D.M.D.

As a young teenager, Dr. Anh Nguyen wrote a paper for school about what she wanted to be when she grew up. She randomly chose the dental field, not knowing that one day she would grow up to love practicing dentistry. Dr. Nguyen attended Portland State University for her undergraduate studies, majoring in General Sciences and minoring in Business Administration. She continued on to complete the dental program and received her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Oregon Health and Sciences University in 2010. She is a member of Delta Signma Delta Fraternity, the American Dental Association (ADA), and the Oregon Dental Association (ODA).

During her academic years, she participated in a number of clinical activities. She participated in the annual Give Kids a Smile event, where hundreds of underserved children in the local community received free dental services. She also joined in the annual Celebration of Smiles at the Portland Children's Museum in which dental students educated children on dental health using hands on crafts and demonstrations. In addition, Dr. Anh Nguyen volunteered for the Medical Teams International by providing free dental services to underprivileged children from a mobile van unit in partnership with Oregon schools. As a peer mentor in the OSHU Explorers program, she educated prospective dental students from local high school and colleges.

Dr. Anh Nguyen is now practicing general dentistry at Sandy Dental PC, and has been with the team since 2010. She is fluent in both English and Vietnamese. During her free time she enjoys bike rides on the waterfront, spending time with her friends and family, and relaxing with a pastry at local bakeries.
