“Hi! I’m Michelle Nguyen. I feel so blessed to be back home in Woodhaven and am excited to be your dentist!”
Dr. Nguyen was born in Vietnam as the youngest of nine kids! She immigrated to the United States with her family in 1992. Growing up in the Woodhaven-Brownstown area, she graduated from Woodhaven High School in 2009. Then, she was accepted into the University of Detroit Mercy’s accelerated 7-year BS/DDS program where she earned her Bachelor’s and Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree simultaneously.
Community service has been a deep passion for Dr. Nguyen. During dental school and even after graduation, she has traveled to four different countries and participated in several dental mission trips where she provided free dental care and education and even shoes to the poorest villages of those countries.
After dental school, she married her husband Brad, and together they have a daughter named, Ruby and a dog named, Harry.
Now Dr. Nguyen is back in Woodhaven, MI and eager to continue service to her own local community. She regularly contributes to the city’s civic programs, to the Woodhaven Police and Fire Department, and to local downriver schools as well.
When she’s not practicing dentistry, she enjoys spending time with her family, playing tennis, riding bikes, playing trivia, planning events, and working on small home renovation projects.
