Jenny Nguyen, DDS

Dentist and owner of Seattle Smiles Dental

Dr. Jenny Nguyen was born and raised in Iowa. She studied biochemistry at the University of Iowa where she also researched gene therapy for cystic fibrosis. After receiving her bachelor’s degree, she moved to Ecuador to teach English to children in an underserved rural community and to learn Spanish. Thereafter, Dr. Nguyen studied at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry and earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery. After practicing dentistry in Minneapolis for a number of years, she, her husband and parents moved to Seattle to enjoy the outdoor activities of the Pacific Northwest.

I enjoy dentistry because of my love of the health sciences and dentistry’s unique blend of science and artistry.

Dr. Nguyen has extensive experience caring for people of all ages and backgrounds having worked in private practice, non-profit organizations, pediatric clinics and nursing homes. She has treated patients ranging from day old babies to nursing home residents to patients with special needs. Dr. Nguyen is committed to providing the highest quality dentistry while creating a comfortable and caring environment for her patients and for her team of dedicated dental professionals.

Dr. Nguyen has extensive additional training in all aspects of dentistry including cosmetic dentistry, laser dentistry, oral surgery, root canal therapy, implant dentistry and Invisalign. Dr. Nguyen enjoys volunteering in the community and has provided dental care through the Union Gospel Mission, the Seattle/King County Clinic and internationally in the Copper Canyon in Mexico and to Haitian refugees in the Dominican Republic.

She enjoys backpacking, skiing, traveling, woodworking and playing guitar and piano. When not in the office, she spends time with her husband, daughter, son, family and friends.
