1) Tell us about OC Healthy Smiles.

At OC Healthy Smiles, we believe in improving our patients' lives through quality care, compassion, and education. A native of Orange County, Dr. Mark K. Nguyen earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at New York University College of Dentistry and is licensed to practice in both California and Nevada. After a general practice residency at the Loma Linda VA Hospital, Invisalign certification, and a clinical concentration program in cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Nguyen is uniquely qualified to create beautiful and healthy smiles. Dr. Nguyen's true passion for dentistry is exemplified by his participation in continuing education that far exceeds requirements to maintain a dental license.

2) What role does giving back play at OC Healthy Smiles?

Giving back to the community is one of our core beliefs at OC Healthy Smiles. Our goal is to help make the Orange County area a better place to live. Since 2015, we have provided approximately $30,000 in free dentistry to those in need. Starting in October 2016, we're holding our 1st Annual PB&J Drive to donate to children in need.  

3) Why did OC Healthy Smiles choose to partner with Project Hope Alliance?

We chose to partner with Project Hope Alliance because we have similar goals, including positively influencing the Orange County community. Dr. Nguyen strongly believes that excelling in school and getting a good education is the key to rising above poverty. We love that Project Hope Alliance makes education for homeless children a possibility.  

4) In what ways does OC Healthy Smiles support Project Hope Alliance?

OC Healthy Smiles supports Project Hope Alliance through events such as the 1st Annual PB&J Drive and The Free Dental Care Day. 

5) What gives OC Healthy Smiles hope?

Seeing all of the smiling faces at The Free Dental Care Day and knowing that all of the PB&J, which is filling up our reception area, will help feed struggling families in Orange County gives our office staff hope. 

Thank you, OC Healthy Smiles, for giving the gift of hope.
