I highly recommend going here for all your dental needs! I recently had my wisdom teeth extracted by Dr. Nguyen and it was a very great experience. She had great steady hands to ensure that the extraction went smoothly and also made sure I was feeling comfortable throughout the entire process. Dr. Nguyen and her staff are very professional and genuine, always making sure their patients receive the best quality service anyone could ask for! Almeda Dental is by far the best dental office I have ever been to and I am very glad that Dr. Thu Nguyen is my dentist!

Jeremy A.
My 2nd visit. The staff and Doctor Thu are very nice and helpful and are willing to go the extra mile. This will be my permanent dentist moving forward. I’ve been to others and they want to rip you off immediately with stuff you don’t need. Doctor Thu is straight to the point and cares about her patients.
Art S.
Normally, I don't write reviews. However, I am highly impressed with Almeda Dental. Dr. Nguyen and her staff do an excellent job! It took me a long time to find a Dentist that I feel confident in, and this one definitely meets my expectations. I am also very impressed with how clean they keep their business. I will continue to come here for years to come.

Marisol V.
They did amazing with my visit, everyone was so nice and welcoming! I got a cleaning and they treated me and my teeth with care. I really appreciate them!
Lindsey P.
Yet another 5 star review from another patient. I chose Almeda because of their reviews. I thought there is no way Almeda could be so good that they have ALL 5 STAR REVIEWS. I now understand why. I went in to be told what I already knew. I needed my wisdom teeth out. I had been in pain for a solid week. My appointment was for 11. I was back in a chair with someone AT 11! Within 45 minutes they were able to schedule me to have my wisdom teeth removed that day within the next hour. The procedure took another hour and mine were deeply impacted. I am so impressed with the staff, dental assistant, dental hygienist and oral surgeon. I would highly recommend coming to them.
