Ticole Nguyen understands not everyone has a positive opinion of going to the dentist. But she’s all about changing that. “I didn’t have very good dental experiences growing up, so I went into dentistry to make things different for my patients,” she said. “Fear of the dentist and the dental office is a very real thing. I’ve had many fillings and crowns, so I’m empathetic with my patients. I understand that, and I’m dedicated to changing it.”
Ticole is one of those rare people who settled on her career path early in life. “When I was in 10th grade, I knew I wanted to pursue dentistry,” she said. “I participated in summer dental programs at Baylor Dental School. After I graduated, I worked at a corporate dental office for a while and was blessed to work with an amazing and wonderful senior dentist who became my mentor and encouraged me to open my own office.”
That mentor also taught Dr. Nguyen to cater to each patient individually. “My goal is to treat each patient like I’m treating a member of my family,” she said. “My office environment is laid- back and relaxed. Patients tell us they really enjoy the vibe of the office, that they enjoy coming here.” While the 360 Dentistry office is high-tech with the latest dental technique and technology, Dr. Nguyen says she prefers to practice dentistry “the correct way, not necessarily the fast or easy way”.
Dr. Nguyen feels blessed to work with a dynamic dental team. “I’m lucky to have a team that shares my outlook and mindset when it comes to patients and treatment,” she said. “We want what’s best for our patients and patient comfort is a priority. I love reading online testimonials of our office. We make it a point to make the patient experience the best it can be and it’s wonderful to hear from patients who’ve noticed.”
A firm believer in giving back, Dr. Nguyen offers volunteer dentistry at Mission Arlington and engages in other volunteer events around DFW. She and her husband, Dr. Christopher Gonzales, have participated in medical mission trips and volunteer at the dental school as supervising dentists.
Born and raised in DFW, Dr. Nguyen graduated high school in three years and started her secondary schooling at Dallas County Community College before obtaining her bachelor’s in biology from University of Texas at Arlington and her doctorate in dental surgery from Texas A&M Baylor College of Dentistry. She continues to diligently seek continuing education and training, over and above that which is required.
