I took my mom here, she hasn't been to the dentist in over 24 years and he said she had perfect teeth. She has missing teeth receding gums that show the roots of the tooth. Looks a lot like gum disease. He said all she needed was a deep cleaning. She wanted to no more about dentures but he said she had perfect teeth and didn't need them and he rushed us out. I also knew someone who went to him for a cleaning and ended up walking out with a chipped tooth. And the dr was rude....Read more

I stopped going to this dental office about 18 months ago because my favorite dentists keep leaving.  Also because the location is in Santa Rosa and I live in Petaluma....Read more

I was seen here about a year and a half ago by Dr. Randy Nguyen for the first and only time for a simple filling. He was unusually unfriendly and I just figured he was having a bad day. I'd never had a filling that required any kind of numbing before (very shallow surface cavities), and was somewhat nervous about the shot ( I was 18). After he administered the shot to I was super relieved because it wasn't that bad....Read more

I have been in excruciation pain, after being in the emergency department and given a pain block in my jaw, an injection of pain meds and pain pills that hardly touched it I had to wait until Monday because they take 3 day weekends and are not open on Fridays, went to the office on an emergency, I could hardly open my mouth so when he stuck his finger in and started to push around my pain was so severe that I yelped and flinched. He backed up and yelled at me to get out, I was horrified and miffed why, I felt like I was being punished for being hurt, he then said he could not help me because I was flaying around, and stood in front of me with his arms up in the air waving them and jumping around to show me what he thought of me trying to fend off the pain. I started crying so he obviously didn't want to make a scene, so he went to the desk, wrote me a rx for antibiotics and referred me to a wonderful endodontist (who I will be happy to give an updated review after this friday). He kept reiterating that I should not break my appt with her, (I think he is not seeing mediCal patients anymore, at least not new ones, he will not see anyone who breaks an appt and assumes all mediCal patients probably are the same.) The dr that he referred me to saw me immediately, altho they do not take medical, it does not matter. Id rather sell my car or take out a 2nd on my home than go back to him. His treatment of people who are in pain and to dont react the way he wants you to is atrocious. I have been reading all of the negative reviews and I want to contribute to the people who are suffering from him. So, here is the complain form to the DENTAL BOARD OF CALIFORNIA:...Read more

By Courtney V. on October 30, 2016 6:00 PM
This is way overdue and the only reason I even bring it up is because of the experience a friend of mine had with her teenager. I'm 40+ years old so I know a thing or two about dentists and I must say the experience I had with Dr. Nuygen is one that I will never repeat in my lifetime. Perhaps it's his demeanor that rolls off onto the staff or maybe it's the staffs demeanor that rolls off onto the him. Perhaps it's a chip on his shoulder, perhaps it's that he has issues with women, either way those are all his issues and he should be more respectful to folks who pay him for his services, it's not the other way around. He's disrespectful, he's borderline harassing in nature, he's borderline predatory behavior, borderline he's a creep. People deserve better treatment and more respect than what Dr. Nuygen has to offer. I dropped a cool $1000 for a root canal and I'll happily drop $2000 to a dentist who treats me with kindness and is courteous and is respectful to me such as Dr Alin Chera he's on Second street and even made a payment plan for me. Choosing a dentist is just that it's a choice. Choose wisely!...Read more

By Jasmine H. on October 23, 2016 6:00 PM
I also wish there were negative stars. My experience seems like pure negligence. I saw this dentist, rather than my regular dentist, and was told multiple things were wrong with my teeth, including a cavity that they scheduled to have filled the next week. Which is this week...I went and got a 2nd opinion from my regular dentist and THANK GOD!!! Is this dentist some kind of scammer? Wtf?! This "cavity" has been there for years and has stayed the same size and color for years, it's light shaded and there is no pain. It is unnecessary for it to be filled and he would have to dig out good solid parts of my tooth to "fill" it, which would only last 8 to 10 years, before he would have to see me again to refill it. I have x rays regularly and he didn't even look at my dental history!!! What? What kind of dentist is this? I am really upset, sorry! But, wow! My mind is blown that someone could run a practice like this and sleep at night. Thank GOD I listened to my intuition and made sure all of the "issues" this "dentist" said I had, were actually happening, as I was in pure shock leaving his office with the recommendations and immediate appointment for a filling where there was no pain or any "issue"...So, nope, I do not need anything done on my tooth that has a perfect root canal, he completely misdiagnosed me and I need a night guard for grinding my teeth at night, as I have TMJ and it's came and gone since I was a teenager! I do NOT need a "reverse" root canal/surgery as my referral says!!!! Seriously?! That is a huge mistake and misdiagnosis!! I have been upset for days about all the issues he said I had and am so thankful my mind has been put to ease and the reality of my teeth grinding being the issue, which is an easy fix! He said my tooth with a root canal was inflamed, gave me a referral for surgery and when I saw my dentist, nope, it's fine and I was MISDIAGNOSED AKA PURE NEGLIGENCE! He also said one of my teeth that has absolutely no pain was going to fall out "any day" per his X-rays?!!! He is out of his mind! What he said to me was psychologically messed up, as this tooth is also perfectly fine!!! I went to my regular dentist in tears asking what I can do and why it will fall out...it is perfectly fine! Wtf?!! I can't stress how this impacts a persons psyche and then could (if you trust this inhumane human) cause unnecessary expenses, time, dental work, the list goes on and on. I am appalled that this person is a practicing dentist and especially for people without the means to go to another provider. Thank god I listened to my intuition and saw a dentist that has integrity and cares about the well being of his patients, as it's worth every penny for my time, my health, well being and to be treated with dignity, good practice and the TRUTH with all options presented with knowledge/wisdom/competence and CARE. I would caution anyone who is considering allowing this person to work on the only set of teeth you have!!!! Another issue was that he insisted on cleaning my teeth, he very quickly and roughly used equipment on my teeth (maybe 3 minutes of really hard "cleaning") and I woke up in pain 2 nights in a row after that. My dentist said he probably just hurt my gums, but they have thankfully healed already and I have no pain. Wtf?! This is a LICENSED dentist? Just wtf?! Appalled, disgusted, angry, and wondering if there will be or is a class action lawsuit against this crazed, power tripped out and possible scamming dentist?! If anyone does start one, please contact me! Or if anyone is reporting this to help get this person out of this line of work, I would be happy to help. I wouldn't wish this on ANYONE!!!! This experience makes me sick to my stomach...He also asked me if I was anorexic! Wtf?! Just wtf?! I'm fit, sorry I work out. Wtf?!!!!!!!!...Read more

I went to Dr Randy Nguyen about two years ago when I had CMSP (Medi-cal) Him and his staff were always very friendly and helpful. I never waited long to be seen. While in his care I had a teeth cleaning, two root canals and multiple fillings. All were done with ease and no pain (thankfully)....Read more
