I came for check up being pregnant, Dr. Loc was very pleasant to talk to, kind and professional, she went through what my insurance will cover for me (even though i knew already), she recommended to check with my prenatal caredoctor if it will be safe to do x-rays so they can proceed with treatment (i needed crown and filling). She wasn't pushy nor tried to sell her services (like many other dentists did). She was patient and gave me enough of her time to talk to me about every aspect even though the office was busy and she had to go see other patients. They did cleaning and fluoride treatment. I've been very unfortunate with my previous dentists, who only looked at my mouth for 2 minutes just to calculate their profit. Dr. Loc is totally opposite. It was very positive experience! Looking forward to my next appointment!

Loc Nguyen is an amazing dentist! I'm currently working in Northern VA/D.C., and I needed to schedule a quick appointment due to gingivitis. She and her team were absolutely a pleasure. I'm disappointed that I won't have her back in Pittsburghwhen I get back. 5/5 recommend this dentist and her team to everyone! They're great people. Thank you, again!

Dr. Nguyen has been my dentist for several years. She has an excellent bedside manner--she is very cheerful, good-humored, honest and professional. I have had fillings, whitenings, and Invisalign with her. I frequently get compliments aboutmy smile, which is in part, from her good work. Her office is state of the art and I trust her technical abilities. She is also great with kids.

First, I had to hold the suction device in my mouth until she discussed my insurance with the assistant. My mouth became so dry, it was painful. She did this several times. Then, she proceeded to spray water all over myface and laughed about it, saying she was giving me a facial. She only partially cleaned my teeth and stopped midway saying that she would not get paid by the insurance company if she did a full cleaning. I have never had such a terrible dental appointment before going to this dentist.

It was strange. I've never been to a dentist where they ask the patient to hold the spit suction instrument in your own mouth, while the dentist is working in your mouth. Also, when they used the rinsing device that sprayswater in the patients mouth, they covered my entire face with water which dripped down my face and neck, into my hair and my clothes.
