Dr. Joey Nguyen
Dr. Joey Nguyen goes by his first name, Dr. Joey. He was born and raised in San Jose, CA. He graduated from University of California: San Francisco (UCSF) where he earned his Doctorate in Dental Surgery (DDS) degree with multiple honors in patient clinical care and endodontics. He’s a family dentist that treats all his patients as if they are family . His patient’s well-being is his top priority, so he always does his best to be as gentle as possible to ensure that everything is done as painless as possible. He is most happy when he is able to help patients in need of emergency services because he understands how painful dental pain can be. Growing up poor, he understands how expensive dental care can be. Therefore, he does his best to give back as much as possible. For the last two years, he volunteers in his free time to provide free dental care to the homeless community in San Francisco. In addition, he also travels back to Vietnam to provide dental care and education to the less fortunate there as well. In his little spare time, he likes to spend time with his friends and family. He also have an energetic french bulldog that keeps him busy. Lastly, he wants his patients to know that he’s scared of going to the dentist too! They are not alone. Therefore, he will do everything in his power to make his patient’s experience as comfortable as possible.
Dr. Emily Thai
Dr. Emily Thai is a Bay Area native, currently residing and practicing in the East Bay. She earned her B.S. in Biological Sciences from University of California, Irvine and graduated from Midwestern University – Arizona College of Dental Medicine. While at MWU-AZ she received multiple awards and recognition in regards to her clinical skills, patient care, and her passion and participation in community service. Dr. Thai is a strong believer in comprehensive dental care and that good dental health is greatly intertwined with overall body health. She also understands that not everyone finds going to the dentist a pleasant experience. Because of that, what she enjoys most about dentistry is being able to genuinely connect with her patients, while providing a gentle and positive dental experience. Her goal is to help her patients reach stable and optimum oral health and feel great about their smile.
While not in the dental setting, Dr. Thai enjoys spending time with friends and family, cooking and baking, traveling to new places, and practicing yoga.
I enjoy being a part of our team because not only do we provide patients with a great smile, but also improve their self confidence. On my free time, I like to find new hiking and running trails, where I see different terrains and indulge in the amazing views. I also like to work on various art projects and teach my rabbit new tricks.
What excites me the most about dentistry is making other people feel confident about their smiles. I love working at Arbor Family Dental because we really focus on comfort and quality care. I enjoy working with Dr. Ton and the team because together we make it all happen by providing the best dental experience possible. Our office welcomes patients with big smiles and many amenities to make them feel “at home”. I feel very fortunate to be part of such an amazing team! When I’m not working, I enjoy traveling with my older sister, spending time with my family, and going to the beach.
My name is Bernice Murguia-Gutierrez and recently became part of the Arbor Dental Team, a wonderful family practice which encompasses all the specialty areas that I love about dentistry: Preventative dentistry, Periodontics, Orthodontics and Restorative dentistry. My 25 years plus of experience in this field has armed me with a lot of insight which I get to use as I meet and treat each one of my patients. I love treating each of my patients as an individual and get to be part of the process of curtailing their treatment and care in a way that is not a “cookie-cutter” approach. I have had great response from my patients with this individualized approach and over the years have been blessed to connect and become good friends with all who I get to interact treat and interact with.
I have a BA degree in Biology, an Associates degree in Dental Assisting and an Associates degree in Dental Hygiene. I am married to my high school sweetheart, a mother of two wonderful boys who are in the second and fourth grade. I am also part of the School Site Counsel at Rocketship Delta Prep, a charter school in Antioch. Education is very important to me and love to share what I can with my patients and all who I get to interact with. When I’m not at work or at my son’s school I love to center myself with gardening and landscaping around my home, walking my two dogs, or spending time with good friends. Over the years I have learned to look at life in such a way that is best described by this quote: “ Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” -Charles R. Swindoll
I love being able to help people attain confident and healthy smiles! I graduated from SFSU and Carrington College. I enjoy spending time with my husband and cats, hiking, and finding new restaurants to try.
I graduated from Horizon College. Being a Dental Assistant allows me to have so many rewarding moments but by far my favorite is being a part of giving someone back their smile. I like to spend my time with my family and fiends, watching movies and go shopping.
Dr. Ton is a very professional and energetic young Dentist. My family sees him for regular checkups, I was in a motorcycle accident and lost my two front teeth. Dr. Ton recommended the best option for replacement, was always courteous and respectful and made sure I was comfortable every step of the way. I love my new teeth and they look better than my originals. I would definitely recommend his services to all my friends and family.
Dr. Ton is a committed professional through and through and will go above and beyond to not only take care of the needs of his patients, but to ensure that they are carefully educated in their oral health. He is the industry expert on patient preventative dental hygiene and care and ensuring the patient is as comfortable as possible. He took care of my personal needs for a oral appliance (I have severe bruxism and grind my teeth at night). Dr. Ton and his staff were stellar in all regards. Couldn’t recommend him more.
