Dr. Nguyen had the privilege to volunteer on a dental mission trip to provide free care to the needy in Cusco, Peru.  Among the procedures performed were dental extractions, cleanings, and fillings.  Helping out in communities that are in need was a humbling experience for Dr. Nguyen.  It has given him a broader perspective on the state of healthcare and dental care in the world.

During his residency program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Dr. Nguyen also earned a Certificate for his 3 years of services at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Birmingham, Alabama.  He performed a variety of periodontal procedures and surgeries for veterans, including gum disease treatment, placement of dental implants, bone grafting, and soft tissue grafting.
