Dr Rosemary Nguyễn
Oral Health Therapist
As a young child, I aspired to become a physio and had my heart set on rehabilitation. I have a passion for people’s health and well-being and I strongly believe in the term ‘exercise is medicine’; I’m currently working towards finishing my degree to become an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) where I will work with a variety of people using exercise as a form of treatment.
I enjoy outdoor activities and staying active. I occasionally enjoy reading a good book while cuddling with my fur babies.
I have been dental nursing since 1989, from a busy practice in Sydney’s West chairside and practice management. I have been working on the Sunshine Coast since 2009 as a senior Clinical Coordinator to Head Nurse.
I pride myself on excellent communication skills with a nurturing and calm side and am very passionate at what I do.
I actively take part in continuing my education in all aspects of dentistry including jaw growth development.
My husband and I have 2 adult sons. I enjoy cooking, fishing, animals, gardening and having a good laugh.
Front Office Manager
I have worked with the wonderful team at Lake View Dental for over 6 years, where I originally trained as a dental assistant. I chose to work at Lake View Dental because of their philosophy around dentistry and the connection to overall health and well-being. A few years into my dental career I became front-office coordinator, where I get to greet all of our beautiful patients with a smile. Walking into a dental surgery can be daunting and the most rewarding part of my job is making you feel more at ease.
I grew up on the Sunshine Coast and plan to raise my daughter here. When I am not at work you will find me exploring in nature, cooking, creating, exercising and on the off day maybe binging a new tv series.
