Meet Dr. Paulina Nguyen
Dr. Paulina Nguyen, DDS
Torrance, CA Pediatric Specialist (Children's Dentist)
Dr. Paulina Nguyen grew up in Monterey Bay, CA and completed her undergraduate studies at UCLA and dental school at USC. She always has had a passion for working with children and has traveled abroad including Thailand, Vietnam, and Mexico for dental mission trips. Following dental school, she worked in a pediatric dental office and decided to continue her training by completing a pediatric dental residency through NYU Langone in Hawaii. Her post-doctoral training in Hawaii enabled her to serve children across four different Hawaiian islands while advancing her training in general anesthesia, oral sedation, orthodontics, and special needs patients. She returns to southern California where she aims to provide not only provide quality dental care for infants, children and adolescents, but also create long lasting positive dental experiences from a young age.
In her free time, Dr. Paulina loves to spend time with her family, husband and adorable labradoodle Nalu. She loves trying new restaurants, drinking coffee, and running by the beach. During basketball season, you can find her glued to the TV or in the Staples Center cheering for the LA Lakers! Dr. Paulina is also fluent in three languages: English, Vietnamese, and Spanish. Although Dr. Paulina is a dentist, she is a child at heart and looks forward to learning the latest Tik Tok trends and dance moves from her pediatric patients!
