Verified Patient Reviews
With Smile Craft Dental, office visits are no longer something to dread. Thank you Dr. Nguyen for making it easy to get all my tooth work done.
This was my first appointment at this place. I went for a cleaning appointment. But, the assistant spent 90% of the time taking my xrays instead. And she was taking too many xrays, she wasnt able to get one correctly, so kept retaking. I think she took atleast 30 to 35 takes, I am not kidding. All this while appointment was for cleaning. And even after all this effort, none of the xrays came out right. After all this, she realized time was less and quickly completed my cleaning. I can assure it was done in a hurry and wasnt properly done. I am not sure how to trust this practice with my dental work, if they cant even take xrays properly and dont do the cleaning work properly. I am not even sure if taking so many xrays is safe. Terrible experience, never visiting here again.
Would rate more stars if possible. First time to the dentist in five years and Dr. Amy Nguyen and her assistant Candice made me feel comfortable and did a great job. Wish I went to the dentist sooner! Side note: Great snacks in the waiting area + phone chargers!
Amazing, nothing more I can say.
Dr Nguyen is sensitive, smart and an excellent dentist. Finding a good one is like finding a religion or a hair stylist: once you find one you love, you stay with it/them.
Smooth and efficient, friendly staff

Dr Amy Nguyen is so friendly! Her staff are equally cheerful and energetic. The office and equipment are clean and new. I had a wonderful experience. Highly recommended!!
really great. staffs were all nice and friendly. everyone worked professionally and didnt rush through any procedures.
Best dentist I've ever had. Incredibly nice and professional. A pleasure each visit
Dr. Nguyen and staff are great! Highly recommend. :)
I love Dr. Nguyen! She's extremely friendly and kind and is great with answering questions and walking me through all the procedures. I appreciate that she is not aggressive about treatment (doesn't try to convince me to change out an old filling if there isn't a problem, unlike dentists I've had before). At the same time, she is good at keeping an eye on things so they don't develop into issues.
Very personable! Vibrant and enthusiastic about her work.
they are the best! love going to this office/dentist.
Today was my first visit to Dr. Nguyen's office and I was more than happy with the personability of Dr. Nguyen and her staff. I felt comfortable and at home in her office. Dr. Nguyen also asked questions about myself to get to know me better as a person rather than just another client. I will definitely be returning this friendly atmosphere.
Dr. Nguyen is great!
Great experience. Fantastic dentist. I only wish she was up in the city (I moved), but fantastic.
Amy and her team were great! Super nice, very thorough cleaning and very patient. Didn't have to wait at all either!
I have not had much luck, until now, finding a dentist that was more interested in her patient than money, but Amy and her associate are amazing. Amy's attention to detail, and her sincere interest in her patient is far beyond anything I have seen. I am a forever patient !
Awesome. I highly recommend Dr Amy.
I had an amazing experience! I was helped by Jessica and Dr. Chung and they were beyond great; by far the best dental experience I've ever had. I cannot recommend them and smilecraft enough!!
Quick and very good service.
My visit with Dr Nguyen was great. I had a broken wisdom tooth which I wanted to get removed. I was pretty skeptical about the whole procedure when I looked on youtube and when I called other tooth extraction when then said you need to go to oral surgeon. Dr Nguyen took the Xray and mentioned my extraction wouldnt be as complicated and is only a simple extraction. She advised me to have filing till I get the tooth extracted as I was not ready for tooth extraction that day.Glad I had the filling now I can live without the nagging pain from the broken tooth till I get it extracted. Dr Nguyen was great,greeted with a smile and explained in detail how my tooth had damaged and explained my options.Would recommend her for anyone who would need dental treatment.
Dr.Nguyen is the best! I always feel like I am taken care of when I visit. Her appointments are always on time and she is super thorough. She is also super gentle when working on my teeth and constantly checking to make sure I'm doing ok. I highly recommend Dr. Nguyen.
Everything was quick and painless!
Very nice, clean inside! Amy Nguyen is the best dentist I ever met!
Dr. Nguyen was very pleasant. She was professional and friendly. She made me feel right at home.
Dr. Nguyen was warm, friendly, and professional. She seemed very good at what she was doing and walked me through each step so there were no surprises. I appreciated the time she took to explain to me everything that was going on.
I was looking for a new dentist for my daughter, and I found Amy Nguyen from Aetna Dental directory. I also did my research to find out more about Amy from Yelp. I read the reviews and decided to give them a call ! The ladies that helped me on the phone were both extremely helpful and friendly! Thank you to the staff members at Dr. Nguyen's office for being such a big help. See you guys next month! If I could give more stars I would! Amazing service. Quality work with complete awareness that being at a dentist is nerve racking. Highly highly recommend Dr. Amy Nguyen
Dr. Nguyen is very thorough and very friendly.
Dr Nguyen is awesome! She gave me many good tips for healthy teeth and reviewing x-ray in front of me during exam to help me understand my teeth condition. Dr.Nguyen and nurse Rebecca make a great team.
The best dentist I have seen. Very clean and new office. They use digital xrays so much less radiation than the old school kind, they also show up immediately on the computer next to you along with what looked long an exposure meter, so that was cool. Dr Nguyen greeted me at the front, took me back to the procedure room and was with me most of the time, was a nice change of pace from usually only being seen by the actual dentist for a couple minutes, she even did the cleaning and then had her assistant polish my teeth and floss. 0 pain or discomfort throughout the entire visit and Dr Nguyen was very informative and thorough about everything. She was also one of the nicest people I've met, all of this made my visit the best dental experience I've had. I will be returning for all my future dental needs.
Dr. Nguyen was amazing as always. I loved the caring detail her and her assistant showed throughout my visit. Very prompt work with a relaxed office setting that's perfect for uneasy dentist goers such as myself. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a simple and thorough trip to the dentist.
The easiest, fastest and least painful filling ever
Great and friendly doctor and assistant. Easy scheduling and comforting environment. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family.
It was great! Thank you!
The amount of attention you get is what seriously makes this visit worthwhile. You really feel like you're getting the best service you can. You get seen promptly and my teeth have never been better.
She's great! The best dentist that I ever had.
She was patient and sweet with my two kids. They loved her and her assistant! The office is very clean, neat and overall is a great place.
Very clean facility in fairly new building. My appointment was preventative care (teeth clean). She knows her work, very polite and not pushy to sell stuff but fair. Most dentists try to sell service but she is honest and great service. If someone is looking for general dentistry Smile Craft Dental Dr. Amy Nguyen, DDS would be perfect.
I loved my first visit with Dr. Amy. It was a nice surprise to have her check for oral or throat cancer as part of your checkup, as that has never been part of my visits with other dentist office before.
Very professional and very careful. It will make your stay at her office comfortable.
A pleasant visit, and a superb service. She will give you all the information you need. Also, she will give you a detail of what she is gonna perform. She will gladly explain what it is covered and work with you to see what is best for you.
I very much appreciated Dr. Nguyen's explanations and thoroughness in her care. Her attention to detail and warm demeanor made the entire experience very pleasant. Thank you!
I felt very relaxed and comfortable at the office. The staffs took great care of me.
It is such a pleasure during my appointments with Dr. Amy and her staff. They are very attentive to my comfort and communicating to me necessary information as it applies to my health.
Dr. Amy greeted me as soon as I arrived. She explained everthing she did and was very personable. Her staff is excellent as well. The office was spotless. Highly recommend this dentist.
I've been to many dentists since I've moved around a lot in the past 10 years. Dr. Nguyen is very polite and professional, and detailed in explaining everything and making sure her patients are comfortable. The office is clean and equipment is modern. I felt like the care was very good compared to the other larger dentist practices which tend to try and "sell sell sell" you product and services. I will definitely be going back.
Everything was great! Keep up the good work!
Amy was great! Very professional and friendly. Didn't try to sell services that weren't needed. Very glad I found such a great dentist!
Dr. Nguyen is so nice! She uses great technology, checks for oral cancer/overall health, is fast, and gentle. She didn't try and sell me anything and seems very proactive and compliant with insurance/privacy. She reminded me of my family dentist growing up :).
I enjoy every visit for my appointments. I am well taken care of and learn something new every time. Thanks!!!
I started seeing Amy Nguyen after a friend relayed his positive experience and recommended her as my new dentist. Amy is the by far the best dentist that I have ever visited. She is personable, friendly, and so quick! My appointments regularly run shorter than expected and she gives me her undivided attention while I'm there. I have recommended Amy to many friends who are looking for a new dentist.
Excellent super easy visit! Super straightforward and painless.
I'm not of fan of going to the dentist office mostly because of the vigorous pulling and drilling, but Dr Nguyen completed 3x cavities and 1x crown with zero pain. She also saved me from a root canal. I recommend Amy Nguyen to all.
Amy is a kind and informative dentist who uses the latest technologies to ensure her patients' maximum comfort. I am so happy I found her!
It was my first filling in decades so I was a bit apprehensive. I'm happy to say that the appointment was fast and painless. Dr. Nguyen was also extremely hospitable. It turned out to be a pleasant experience!
Warm and welcoming with awesome care and practical dental advice!
Dr Amy is fantastic. She has a great bedside manner and clearly communicates what she's doing and why its important or relevant. Our whole family goes to her and we recommend our friends and family to her practice as well.
Amy Nguyen, DDS is the best. I was able to complete all my paperwork online before my first visit, I had a zero wait time from when my appointment started, and she was super gentle during my deep cleaning. The dental office was also very clean and modern, which was a bonus.
Dr. Nguyen and her staff are incredibly professional and caring. She has great expertise. The office is impeccably clean and the equipment state of the art. I highly recommend Dr. Nguyen for any dental care.
Amy was excellent! She did a great job cleaning my teeth and was also a really easy person to talk to. She always made sure I was doing ok and gave me great info on what I can do to improve the life of my pearly whites!
Totally recommend Dr Amy to everybody having a dental problem. Your concern will be explained, healed by Amy's patience and expertise!
For the first time in my life I can truly say that I love my dentist! She is really kind, approachable and takes her time with you and your care. It is a small practice but my care has been outstanding and customer service is great. I really appreciate the email reminders for appointments. I had such a great experience that I convinced my husband to go to her too! He also had a great experience.
Wonderful service. Dr. Nguyen and here assistant are really caring and friendly!
Amy is always fantastic! I highly recommend.
I went in yesterday with my wife. We've recently moved and finding care providers is always daunting. This was dnght and day from my last dentist experience in Mountain View. Amy Nguyen is kind, explains everything clearly, and doesn't try to up-sell me. She said I had one cause for concern on my gums, but that I could likely treat it by diligent flossing. She didn't ask to do x-rays or sell me a "deep cleaning" like the last place I went to. I don't need a dentist to be my friend, but I could see that Dr. Nguyen treats her patients with compassion. I liked the welcome goodie bag and also we are supposed to get two gift cards for being new patients. A nice touch. The office is very clean and modern looking with nice comfy couches and chairs and free coffee/water for those that are thirsty or have a wait. She also uses technology which is sort of a must in this area. It would be suspicious if she didn't...
I have not had the best experiences with dentists in the past. This is the fist time I have visited a dentist in a few years without feeling like I was in the hands of a con artist. Thank you, Dr Nguyen. I am actually looking forward to future procedures and getting my teeth in tip-top shape.
Ok, Amy is literally the best doctor/dentist I've ever been to. She has the best bedside manner, the most gentile techniques, explains everything, worries if she is hurting you. She and her assistant literally make it a pleasure to go to the dentist. Now - six months just seems so long...
Best dentist I've ever been to!
It was great. I'm going to be sad when I don't get to go to the dentist every week anymore.
Per usual, SmileCraft dental leaves me happy and satisfied. I really appreciate the extra communication in the entire process. Telling me step by step what's about to happen. Additionally the staff there is always very nice, highly recommended!
As always, great experience, so welcoming and caring. Highly recommend. Quality is exceptional!
Dr. Amy Nguyen was such a delight to visit today. It's rare that you are excited to visit your dentist, but at Smilecraft, you definitely come and leave with a smile on your face. My bi-annual check-up/cleaning was fast and painless! I am coming back for another procedure this week and can honestly say I am looking forward to it! :)
She is great!
I was well taken care of and she definitely makes sure my teeth are healthy.
I had been going to a dentist for many years, and I have to admit, it was sheer neglect not to try and find one that took an interest in his/her patients. My last visit to my previous dentist, I had a crown put in. He did not even bother to check to see if it was done correctly, and it fell out a couple of days after I left his office. I have always thought about what I would like in a dentist; honesty, integrity, and a true interest in his/her patients. I have found that, and more in Amy !
Amy Nguyen and her staff are very friendly and professional. I highly recommend them!
Dr. Nguyen is wonderful. She has a lovely manner and my visit is very comfortable. More importantly, her work is good and gentle on my teeth. She uses the latest equipment and technology. Her assistants are also good. It is easy to get an appointment and I have never had to wait, although I can't figure out why she is not more busy.
Very Friendly and I look forward to returning for my next appointment.
Amy's practice is just...better. Not much else to say. Quick, easy, comfortable--a wonderful experience at the dentist. Second time going back, and there will be a third...and a fourth...........
I wish i could see the dentist every day....
I can imagine that not a lot of people like to go to the dentist. Dr. Nguyen makes you enjoy the experience. A lot of dentists don't do a thorough check. She checked my gums and upper neck for lumps in case of cancer. No other dentist has ever done that. One of the things I most appreciated was that there were no surprises. She constantly told me what she was going to do before she did it. That way I wouldn't be scared of a buzzing noises or any cold water suddenly splashing around. It was enjoyable and I got to take home a nice travel toothbrush kit!
It is a very comfortable experience. I wear special glasses to block the light. I can see the color picture of my every tooth. It won't hurt a bit. Amy Nguyen was pleasant and caring. And very skilled at her profession. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs to get anything teeth related.
Dr. Nguyen calmed all my fears and resolved all my past fears with going to the dentist. She is AMAZING and I will absolutely be going back to her for any future appointments!
Couldn't have had a better visit to the dentist.
Dr. Nguyen and her new assistant were great! No one really wants to have dental work done at 8:30 in the morning, but I chipped my tooth, and she was able to repair it right away. It looks SO much better - even better than than before the chip.
She's very attentive and thorough. Love coming to this office!
This was my first visit to Dr. Amy and it went better than expected. I am always apprehensive about visiting a Dentist and have not visited one in US since a very long time. The visit started with X-rays followed by a detailed explanation of the condition of my teeth. That was followed by an immaculate cleaning with little to no discomfort. Amy also suggested me a couple of other works for my tooth which was very well explained (not like other places where they seem to always be selling) and made sense to me. Will surely recommend to friends and family.
I found my dentist. She answered all of my questions well in detail and took a good care of my teeth. Oh, she can speak my language, too. What else should I ask for? :D Highly recommended!
She was very professional and friendly. I will highly recommend her to my family and friends.
Amy was very professional & personable! She gave me focused attention and educated me on all the procedures while she was doing them. I highly recommend her to anyone that cares about their oral hygiene!
Dr. Amy is a wonderful doctor and I would definitely recommend her. She takes really good care of her patients.
Highly recommend! She explained everything she was doing and answered all of my questions. She didn't treat me like the last patient of the day like some doctors do. Amy even offered to do some extra dental work while I was there.
I was pleasantly surprised. Perhaps the best dentist appointment I've ever had. Dr. Nguyen walked me through the procedure, was cheerful, promptly greeted me upon arrival, even showed me around the office before going through the cleaning procedure (something which I have never seen before). The office is immaculately clean and modern; they even have WiFi in their seating area. My expectations were definitely exceeded and I highly recommend her services.
She is nice.
Best Dentist in CA + NJ + NY. The new office has so many cool gadgets. I was able to see my teeth from my chair. It's so much easier asking questions and understanding problem areas. Plus, she did my cleaning. If you ride, there is VIP parking.
Amy was patient, gentle, and meticulous. She is also fun to talk to before and after the appointment.
I was most impressed with Amy. Would give her a glowing recommendation !
The place is very clean and well kept with very modern equipment. I went from the front door to the dentist chair almost instantly (no waiting). Dr. Nguyen and her staff were very knowledgeable, friendly and professional.
I went for teeth whitening and was very satisfied with the whole experience
