BDSc (Hons)

As well as being a dentist, Dr Frank Nguyen values his role as an educator. He teaches at the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Sydney, and continues to upskill in technology and techniques himself. He loves to help his patients, and that often means utilising technology like CADCAM to ensure they can have the precision made smiles they desire. He has meticulous attention to detail and combined with his ability to put anxious patients at ease, he is a valued member of the Apple Dental and broader National Dental Care team. As a father, he values teaching his younger patients about their health and is always happy to answer any questions they have. He enjoys the day to day of being a dentist, but in his spare time, he is a thrill-seeking snowboarder, foodie and first and foremost, a loving parent.
