Quynh Nguyen, DDS

Lead Dentist
Goleta Dental Clinic

Dentistry allows me to apply science with artistic skill to serve and improve people’s health, appearance and well being. SBNC allows me to serve the most vulnerable population, who need this help the most.  Working for SBNC is a dream come true for me, because of its noble mission, and because of the caring, compassionate, and brilliant  people I have the privilege to serve with.

My most important goal has been to help patients prevent and control dental problems themselves, through education and self care. Only when patients understand the importance and how to take care of their own teeth daily, do we truly succeed, ultimately, in improving patients’ oral health.


I love to hike and ride my bicycle up the hills of Santa Barbara.
