Who We Are
Dr. Lam Nguyen
Founder & Dentist
"Our goal is to provide excellent, ethical and compassionate care in a comfortable atmosphere."
I earned my degree from the University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, in San Francisco, California. As a National Health Corps Scholar, I moved to Southern Oregon to work in public health for 3 years. After that, I opened my own practice in Talent, Oregon. Unfortunately, the Almeda Fire destroyed my practice on September 8th, 2020. We moved here to South Lake Tahoe where we can continue our love of being in nature.
I believe in patient-doctor relationships that are based on compassion, honesty, and trust. I aim to alleviate pain, and help patients set and achieve oral health goals. Knowing that oral health is the key to overall well-being, my mission is to be a wellness partner for my patients.
Together we’ll find the right path to maintain, improve, or repair your dental health.
