Dr. Huynh says that the best part of his job is providing his patients with an avenue to have a beautiful smile that they can be confident in. This goes beyond just cosmetic enhancements; it's about the profound impact on a person's self-esteem and overall well-being. The power of an attractive smile is transformative, influencing how individuals interact with the world, boosting their mood, enhancing their social interactions, and improving their quality of life. Building strong relationships with patients, keeping up with the latest advancements in dentistry, and receiving gratitude from the people he serves make this profession deeply and endlessly rewarding.

Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?

The question, "Why dentistry?" was posed to Dr. Huynh during his application to dental school as well as by friends and family. Initially, dentistry was not on his radar, as his primary focus had always been on pursuing a career in medicine. When people asked him about his aspirations, he consistently voiced his ambition to become a skilled surgeon, working with his hands to the benefit of humanity. However, this path didn't materialize as he had planned.

It was during this period of uncertainty that a mentor, a highly respected cosmetic dentist based in Newport Beach, illuminated the profound satisfaction and joy that dentistry could offer. Dr. Huynh realized that dentistry wasn't just about teeth; it was about transforming lives by restoring people's smiles. He found that dentistry was the "perfect" profession for him, and it offered him the opportunity to give people smiles they could be truly proud of, and that was a reward in itself.

Where Did You Study Dentistry?

Dr. Huynh attended the University of California, Irvine before going on to earn his dental degree at the prestigious University of California, San Francisco. Over the years, he has worked diligently to stay on the cutting edge of dentistry, receiving training in digital/CEREC dentistry, SprintRay (3D printing) workflow, surgical extractions, and dental implant placement. He is also an active member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry.

Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do? 

Dr. Huynh recently married the love of his life, Tiffany, in June of 2023 surrounded by their friends and family. They have two furry kids named Zuko and Decklan that keep them busy at home--they are full of energy and love to play. In his free time, Dr. Huynh loves going to the mountains to snowboard, traveling to new countries to experience unfamiliar cultures and food, and keeping up with everything related to motorsports. He has a tremendous passion for them, specifically Formula 1 and Supercars.
