T. Paul Nguyen, D.M.D.
Dr. Nguyen graduated from the University of California-Santa Barbara with majors in English and Biological Sciences. While in college, Dr. Nguyen worked as a residential counselor for developmentally disabled and emotionally challenged adolescents and teens at the Devereaux Foundation.
