About Dr. Nguyen:
Graduated magna cum laude from Virginia Commonwealth University. Dr. Tracey Nguyen maintains a private private 30 minutes outside of Washington, DC, in Northern Virginia. She is accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and a fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry. On top of being trained by some of the best leaders in dentistry, she continued her training at at the Kois Center in Seattle, Washington. In 2016, she was honored with Top 25 Women in Dentistry. As a member of the Wellness Dentistry Network, her practice is heavily based on integrating overall health, bridging the gap with medicine and dentistry. Recently she created the Northern Virginia Interdisciplinary Airway Group, focusing on screening, diagnosing and treating children and adults with Sleep Disorder Breathing.
I think dentists have a bigger calling today. The dental care model is very different from the medical model. We are heavily focused on prevention of disease and overall health. I understand that your mouth can reflect your oveall health. We have a serious epidemic with our children. Children are heavily medicated at younger ages at alarming rates. Medical appointments start with a prescription pad and there is little face to face with your physician. I focus on search for the root causes of your disease. I developed this group last year. The purpose of the group is to establish a multidisciplinary approach to airway/sleep breathing problems. Improper breathing leads to poor oxygen exchange and poor oxygen exchange is a leading factor in limiting our body's ability to deter disease. To properly address all the factors involved in this problem necessitates that dentists, physicians and allied health providers work together. The website is meant to be informational and educational to the public and other healthcare providers. We want the public to know that there are solutions to these complex problems and we want healthcare providers to work together for the best outcome for our patients.
