Kym Nguyen

Oral Health Therapist  |  BOH (Adel)

I graduated from the University of Adelaide with a Bachelor of Oral Health degree. My degree allows me to provide thorough hygiene treatment for all ages and also dental treatment for children up to the age of 18 years old. I especially love to see patients as young as 18 months old to give them a wonderful and positive first dental experience. My goal is to show patients, young and old, that dental visits can be enjoyable, or less daunting than you expect. One of the most rewards aspects in dentistry for me is to assist patients with dental anxiety/phobias help overcome their fears. I am passionate about motivating patients to maintain their oral health and to understand the importance of dental hygiene, while developing a friendly relationship.

I also have a special interest in tooth whitening and have been trained in multiple types of tooth whitening to deliver safe and comfortable treatment for every patient. When I am not working at the clinic, I like to bake and spend time with my dogs.
