Linda Nguyen

Linda Nguyen

Lead Dental Hygienist

Hi! I’m Linda Nguyen and I am the hygienist here at Dental Oasis of Orange County. I attended West Coast University located in Anaheim, CA and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in hygiene. After hygiene school, I moved to Las Vegas, NV and worked as a hygienist for a couple of years, but my heart has always belonged in Orange County so I happily moved back! I found Dr. Toorani’s beautiful office shortly after and have been here since!

Growing up, I knew I wanted to be in the health field because I have always wanted to help people. While waiting for pharmacy school, a dentist friend of mine said I would be great as a hygienist and encouraged me to think about hygiene school. I apply for hygiene school, fell in love with dentistry and never looked back!

Currently, I live in Garden Grove with my husband, Jimmy, and our 9-month-old son, Mason! He is our world and the most amazing gift I could have ever asked for! On the weekends, you can find us hanging out with our nieces and nephews, walking Disneyland or eating! We are big foodies and love to try new places so if you see me around don’t hesitate to suggest a place for us to try!
