We are proud to have our associate orthodontist, Dr. Mirna Nguyen with the practice for over 5 years. Many of you already know Dr. Nguyen and will agree that her warm, bubbly personality and understanding demeanor quickly puts patients at ease. With her extensive training, we know that Dr. Nguyen will continue the high standard of professional care that our office provides.
A Canadian native, Dr. Nguyen received her D.M.D. from the University of Montreal. She then decided to come stateside, completing a GPR at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center in New York, where she gained valuable experience in general dentistry and treatment of medically compromised patients. Dr. Nguyen stayed in NYC and pursued her specialty training in Orthodontics at Maimonides Medical Center, where she received her Certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. Dr. Nguyen has been nominated and received several honors and awards based on her academic and personal achievements.
During her orthodontic residency, Dr. Nguyen developed a special interest in orthognathic surgery and cleft lip and palate deformities. She became a member of Smile Train, an international charity that provides surgery to those in need. These same interests have driven her to travel to Columbia, Brazil, South Africa, Ecuador, and Portugal to further expand her knowledge.
Dr. Nguyen is a Fellow of The Royal College of Dentists of Canada and is board eligible for the American Board of Orthodontics. She devotes a lot of her time to continuing education meetings and conferences all over the world in order to keep her knowledge and skills up to date.
When not in the office, Dr. Nguyen enjoys many different types of activities, but most of all, she values spending time with her husband and two beautiful daughters.
