About Dr. Julia Nguyen
Nguyen comes to Cameo from Fayetteville, Arkansas where she attended the
University of Arkansas and received a Bachelors of Science (BS) degree in biology with a minor in finance. Next, Dr. Nguyen attended the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry, where she participated in the Senior Departmental Advanced Studies Program in endodontics. Dr. Nguyen earned a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2014. Upon graduation from dental school, Nguyen furthered her education by completing a one-year general practice residency at Well-Span York Hospital in York, Pennsylvania. In 2017, Dr. Nguyen earned her master’s degree in oral sciences from University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry, during which time she conducted extensive research on the post-operative healing outcomes with prophylactic antibiotics following surgical endodontic treatment.
Exploring New Ideas in Dentistry
With regard to her appointment to Cameo Endodontics, twenty-nine-year-old Dr. Nguyen states, “I am honored to work alongside Cameo’s wealth of doctors who have such outstanding skills, knowledge, and diverse backgrounds. It’s a great experience—and a welcome gift—to be able to explore and share new ideas in dentistry with such amazing talent.”
Passion for Endodontics
Dr. Nguyen is a member of the American Association of Endodontists, American Dental Association, and Edgar D. Coolidge Endodontic Study Club. Dr. Nguyen states that she became extremely interested in endodontics during her work in dental school. “With so many patients who experience pain both before and after a procedure,” she explains, “I was delighted to discover that endodontists aim to heal the patient with as little pain as possible.” Dr. Nguyen’s enthusiasm for the work becomes plainly obvious as she continues, “It’s even more wonderful to see a patient’s eyes light up when I inform them that root canal treatment doesn’t cause pain—it relieves it.”
Away from the Office
Dr. Nguyen contributes off-time to Mission of Mercy in Arkansas and Missouri, and focuses on educating patients at every opportunity. Nguyen currently lives in downtown Chicago. During her free time she enjoys hiking, kayaking, tennis, traveling, and exploring the city, which she feels has quickly become her home away from home.
