Meet Dr. Cory Nguyen
CORY NGUYEN DDS, FAAID, FICOI, DABOI/ID
Diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry
Dr. Cory is a unique and different kind of dentist. Growing up in a family with several dentists and dental lab technicians, Dr. Cory Nguyen was exposed to all aspects of dentistry early on. Dr. Cory earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree in 2004 from the prestigious, Texas A&M Health Science Center Baylor College of Dentistry. He opened his first private practice right out of dental school and soon realized that in order to help and give his patients the most optimum standard of care and overall results, he had to be trained and skilled in all disciplines and/or specialties of dentistry.
Subsequently, this has led Dr. Cory traveling all across the country, spending countless hours of continuing education learning and perfecting his knowledge & skills. Dr. Cory's post-grad training includes advanced implant training with the Medical College of Georgia and American Academy of Implant Dentistry. He is currently 1 out of 16 General Practitioners in Texas, who has earned Diplomate status with the ABOI/ID, American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry. This distinguished distinction symbolizes the highest level of competency in implant dentistry. In addition, Dr. Cory has also earned his Fellow status with the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), further validating his expertise and proficiency in implant dentistry. He has always and continues to go far above & BEYOND the required annual hours for continuing education.
Dr. Cory's "WHY?" and reason behind his passion for understanding and helping patients with TMJ/TMD Pain, Airway/Breathing issues & Sleep Apnea came from 15 years of working with many of his patients who all had a common and recurring factor - unexplained chronic pain and a breakdown in dentistry: infections, pain, sensitivity, inflamed gums, chipped teeth, veneers, crowns, failed implants, etc. Dr. Cory sought out the top advanced dentistry, neuromuscular dentistry & sleep medicine mentors and teachers in the world to learn and to understand the reasoning behind this mystery. The more he learned, the more he wanted to know. His never-ending educational journey has blessed him with thousands of hours of advanced training in all specialties of dentistry including over 200 plus hours at world-renowned education facilities focusing on cranio-mandibular dysfunctions & rehabilitation, TMJ/TMD pain, neuromuscular dentistry, orthodontics, facial orthotropics, myofunctional disorders, obstructive sleep apnea, orthodontic/orthopedic and restorative/prosthetics.
Dr. Cory has been practicing comprehensive dentistry for over 15 years in the Dallas/ Fort Worth metroplex. His combination of artistry skill, technical ability & state of the art equipment and devices are used to perform the most conservative care tailored to each patient individual needs. His advanced training in neuromuscular dentistry and physiologic occlusion along with his multi-specialty experience has enabled him to provide his patients a lasting transformation from their lifelong battle with TMJD (Temporo-Mandibular-Joint-Disorder) & Obstructive Sleep Apnea. By taking a comprehensive, whole body approach to dentistry, he is able to reach the goal of stability, healthy form & function. "This has been an important part of my professional career to remain a general practitioner so I can provide my patients with comprehensive treatment and not to be bound by the boundaries of one specialty."
His passion is to help patients discover why their pain has happened, and then give them choices to get relief. Dr. Cory believes strongly in the life-changing benefits of neuromuscular, physiologic and aesthetic dentistry and he shares the benefits of this revelation in dentistry through his practice as a neuromuscular, implant and cosmetic dentist. "It's not just about fixing teeth, it's about bringing it to the next level to help people reclaim their health and live fuller, happier lives!"
He believes each patient deserves to be educated and counseled on their COMPLETE, total health, not just the mouth or teeth only. "It's about the Whole Body, Whole Health & Wellness. The mouth is the gateway to your entire health, the door to your entire body!" Fully understanding the empowering effects of a beautiful, healthy smile & body, Dr. Cory continues daily on his quest to improve his patients' quality of life by finding innovative ways to achieve not only an aesthetically pleasing smile, but one that is functional, comfortable, and will last for a lifetime.
In his personal life, Dr. Cory and his lovely wife, Michelle stay busy enjoying quality time together with their three young & active sons, Nolan 10, Nathan 6, and Nelson 5. He and his family are active members of the community, church, their boys' school and sports activities. They enjoy family time grilling, eating, singing karaoke, hanging by the pool and traveling to beach destinations whenever they get a chance. In addition to reading books on advanced dentistry and latest health advancements & technologies, Dr Cory is an avid sports enthusiast. He enjoys attending games and watching all sports, especially football. They are die hard Dallas Cowboys fans. GOOO COWBOYS!
