Village pediatric Dentistry welcomed both our children and made them feel  calm in every visit. The staff has been friendly,kind and professional. Dr Nguyen is kind and friendly, she has able to keep my children calm in there visits.My oldest has always been scarred of visiting the  dentist but Dr Nguyen has  changed this,his able to walk in her office with a smile ready for his check  up.i will for ever be grateful  to her for accomplishing this. Her friendly staff and state of the art office is one of the reasons we absolutely  recommend her to other parents  but the main reason is Dr Nguyen she is simply the best.She is kind,professional, honest and absolutely loves her jobs you can tell this by the attention she give  my  children we are blessed to have her be our  children’s dentist. 5 stars is not enough  to say how good she is. 100% we recommend her to other parents.

Dr. Nguyen is very awesome. Obviously, she has lots of experience in the field of working with children. My kids were always very nervous and afraid of dental injections and fillings. I’d been having struggling with their dental appointments until I met Dr. Nguyen. She is amazing and very patient. She knows how to help the kids to get over the fear and feel calmed down. She is Angel sent from Heaven to make parents and kids’ lives easy. Thank you very very very much, Dr. Nguyen.

I highly recommend this dental office! Dr. Nguyen and her staff are amazing. Not only are they ethical, they truly care about your child’s well-being. My son recently got his molar extracted and some additional fillings. From the beginning to end, Dr. Nguyen kept me updated and took the time to explain what her plan was for my son’s procedure. I’m glad to say that everything went well and that my child was in good hands the entire time. Not only does Village Pediatric Dentistry provide beyond exceptional care, they was also some insurance miscommunication that happened and Dr. Nguyen and her stuff worked hard to get it resolved without me having to ask. I will continue to take my son here and recommend this office to all of my friends and family!

This review is long overdue but after a recent visit to Village Pediatric Dentistry during covid-19, I had to leave a review of how awesome Dr. Nguyen and her staff are. We’ve been coming here since my first daughter was 1 year old. She’s now 5 and we have a younger one who is 3. They are in the best care here with Dr. Nguyen and her staff. The environment is friendly and calming. They wait and are so patient with the kids as to not traumatize them. There usually is a bunch of cool and fun toys, books and magazines but those have been put away for safety reasons due to COVID-19. The office has been modified for safety and appointments are spread apart so they can accommodate the 6 feet distancing. I brought my kids in together for back to back appointments so the office only booked us to be there at that time. Only when we were leaving, did I see the next family arriving. They are not about only making money. They are doing what is safe! Temperature checks were performed upon check in. There are protective barriers and all the staff were wearing PPE. I have referred friends here and will continue doing so.

I’ve been happy with Dr Aivan’s care of my daughter’s teeth. Facilities are new, with overhead TV screens to distract the kids. She doesn’t push for general anesthesia (fully knocked out) which comes with risks and Costs (with a capital C). Easy to get an appointment soon, not weeks in advance.

Anita C. from Monrovia, CA (Source: Yelp)


After five years of going to multiple pediatric dentists in the area, we’ve found our dentist! This office goes above and beyond. Dr. Nguyen is gentle, caring, skilled and hands-on. She’s extremely knowledgeable. Her staff is friendly, and the billing practices are honest. The office is immaculate and fun for the patients. My kids typically alternate between screaming/crying and refusing to open their mouths at previous dental offices, and to our surprise, they loved their time at Village Pediatric Dentistry the moment they stepped inside. My older son’s tooth turned gray after he slipped and hit his mouth on boulders two years ago. Our two previous pediatric dentists who saw the gray tooth never bothered to take x-rays (and don’t even get me started on the unnecessary treatments and dishonest billing we endured at other places). Dr. Nguyen and her patient staff were able to convince my very wiggly, tentative son to get some images taken. The images showed my son had an abscessed tooth that needed to be extracted. Dr. Nguyen guided my son through the extraction like a champ and, well if you know my son, that’s quite a feat. My son skipped out of the office after the procedure. We are so grateful to Village Pediatric Dentistry – thank you!

Billie J. from Monterey Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


I took my 3 1/2 year old daughter to Dr. Nguyen (Dr. Win) for her very first dental appointment today. My daughter was not not easily comforted but Dr. Nguyen and her staff (Kris) were wonderful! They both made her feel so comfortable, were extremely kind and patient. They even took a picture with her for her first big visit at the dentist when it was all done and gave her a certificate! Dr. Nguyen was great at explaining the process of tooth decay and what to look for in children.  The facility is clean, VERY kid friendly with iPads, TV’s and headphones for the kids to watch TV while getting their teeth checked. I am beyond satisfied with Dr. Nguyen and her amazing staff. She is our forever dentist and I highly recommend her if you are looking for a pediatric dentist.

Maria E. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Nguyen is awesome!! I can’t say enough of her and her staff. They are always friendly, polite willing to go out of their way to accommodate her patients. Dr. Nguyen is great with the kids she talked to them and takes her time with each one. My 7 yr old son needed lots of work and she took such good care of him. Made him feel super comfortable. I am so great full that we found her. She has been a true blessing to our family.

At first I took my son to Fun Zone in Eagle Rock, but it was a bit far from us. Then we tried Little Crown Pediatric Dentistry in South Pasadena, but we were not happy with their service. Finally we found Village Pediatric Dentistry. Their office is like a children’s palace and has books and toys for the kids. We were able to go visit during the Covid-19. My 6-year-old boy was very calm the whole time. Dr Nguyen is very patient, gentle and caring. Dr Nguyen and her staff are the best with kids

Elide P. from Ontario, CA (Source: Yelp)


I would like to thank Dr. Nguyen for being so patient and so thorough with my 20 month old son. She was so nice and didn’t rush him into the chair. She let him get comfortable before she started any type of dental work on him. I found her here on yelp and I am so happy I took my son to her for his first dental appointment ever back in December 2018 and I was so nervous for him but Dr. Nguyen really put me at ease. She really knows how’s to deal with toddlers which I appreciated so much. She has so many toys and books for the kids to play with and she also has Netflix available to play for the kids. The office is so kid friendly and cozy. It’s very inviting and very up to date. I love it. It doesn’t feel like your typical dental office. When my sons cleaning and check up was over he did not want to leave lol. Thank you Dr. Nguyen!

Tori G. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Nguyen came to our rescue! In a very simple but  traumatic event my 3 year old got his front tooth knocked out. Not only did Dr. Nguyen rush in to see us but she was able to sooth my sons pain and fear and with her expert advice and medical opinion was able to help me cope with the incident. Dr. Nguyen was gentle, kind and very friendly with my little one and he and I both were in awe of all the wonderful toys, furniture, tablets, TV’s on the ceiling and so much more.  After pulling my son away from all the fun toys he walked out of Village Pediatric Dentistry with a prize, treasure chest for his tooth and a smile on his face all thanks to Dr. Nguyen.

Carlie V. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am not one to leave a review, but our experience with Dr. Nguyen and her staff was so amazing that I have to acknowledge her. My son is 5 years old and has never enjoyed going to the dentist, he was actually quite anxious right before he met Dr. Nguyen and now he can’t stop telling everyone “I’m not scared of the dentist anymore”. Dr. Nguyen and her staff are friendly, patient, thorough, and honest. Her staff walked my son through each step of the X-ray process (which no other place had) and they made his cleaning very comfortable. Dr. Nguyen provided detailed information about the x-rays, explained the anatomy of my child’s teeth, and provided preventative cativity measures. We’ve visited three dental offices and no one has taken the time like Dr. Nguyen did. She is easy to talk to and I felt comfortable with her practices (another local dentist charged me over $100 for flouride treatment after charging my insurance). Her office is very clean and welcoming. Now I won’t dread dental visits and neither will me son. Thank you Dr. Nguyen and staff!

James S. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


I am so grateful to have found Dr Nguyen and Village Pediatric Dentistry. It is a place I am comfortable bringing my family, not only is the facility state of the art , but more importantly Dr Nguyen is amazing at what she does. She has a way with children that goes beyond her years of education, she has an innate ability to make both children and parents comfortable, which allows for all necessary dental work to be preformed and without producing the childhood fear of the dentist I had. Can’t recommend this place enough. I’d give it six stars if I could.

F. W. from Monterey Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


My kids really enjoy coming to Dr. Nguyen’s dental office. I have been to 3 different “pediatric dentist” before and they do not even come into comparison with the professional , fun and comfort level that Village Pediatric Dentistry provides. During our visits Dr. Nguyen not only does a thorough exam for both my 1.5 and 3 yr old, but she also educates you in how to prevent cavities and to maintain health teeth and always takes her time in answering any dental questions that I may have. I never feel rushed here and my kids enjoy playing with all the office toys. My 3 yr old actually would sit still in the dental chair herself during teeth cleaning, mainly due to their genius idea of mounting tv’s on the ceiling! I also find this office extremely clean and truly catered to kids! Definitely worth giving this place a try if you are looking for a dentist who truly cares about your kids dental health.

Joanna C. from Temple City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Nguyen and her team are incredible! We took our son for his first dental visit and everything from the facilities, equipment, patient service, and the doctor’s expertise are top-notch! We also had to unexpectedly come back the following week because our son had fallen while playing, and his front tooth had started to wiggle from the fall. We were worried, and fortunately Dr. Nguyen was able to get him in to see him. She did a thorough check-up  and helped explain the situation very well, which helped us feel better! My son has had very positive experiences being there and told me that he enjoys going. We highly recommend Village Pediatric Dentistry!

Quinn U. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Village Pediatric Dentistry is a gem of a find. We brought our little one here at about 18 months and discovered there was some tartar that needed treating. We spaced out our visit and returned recently to have it removed. Dr. Aivan Nguyen has a wonderful bedside manner, she is gentle and sweet with the little one; and while it’s not an easy task scraping a resistant toddler’s teeth, she was able to get the job done, and was very careful in the process. She is patient and gives the child time in the office to acclimate and feel comfortable in the setting. Her office is a really upbeat positive environment; we feel good about coming in. She has great playthings all around to distract, the whole space is clean and charmingly decorated like a kids’ oasis; and there is a large menu of programs and streaming services. Dr. Nguyen graciously streams our little one’s favorite program on the monitors to help the experience. We are very happy to have found her practice, and look forward to continuing to bring our little one here!

Cuong T. from Monterey Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just had a wonderful visit with Dr. Nguyen. The facility is 1st class, modern, clean, and a visual nirvana for kids nervous about going to a dental office. From the stickers to the toys to the many tvs to the attentive staff, we were thoroughly impressed. I cannot wait to share this experience with all my friends and clients. The choice is simple; just go here from now on!

Thank you Village Pediatric Dentisty for making my almost 16 month old son’s 1st dental experience and dental cleaning an amazing one!!!! Thank you Dr. Nguyen for the pediatric oral health preventive care education and for your warmth and care towards my little one today. It was also an amazing experience for me as a first time mom taking my son to his first dental checkup!

Loviedaez R. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Nguyen is AAAAMAZING!! My toddler used to hate going to the dentist until she met her. Second time they met my daughter ran to her to give a huge. She is very patient and treated my daughter like it was her very own. I just love her and I’m so happy I found her. Office is just like the pictures, kid friendly, very clean and well organized. I’m referring all my friends & family to her because she’s the best. Please take your kids with her you wont regret it!!!

Christina L. from Rosemead, CA (Source: Yelp)


My daughter and son have been Dr. Aivan’s patient for almost a year now. We’ve been here twice since COVID and the doctor and her staff has made it safe enough for me to feel comfortable there. Before the visit, we will have to fill out a questionnaire. On the day of the visit, the staff will check everyone’s temperature. There is only one family at a time in the office. The office is really clean. It was even clean before this pandemic. The doctor is great and she is really personable. She always addressed all my concerns. I would recommend her to anyone who’s looking for a peds dentist.

This office deserves more than 5 stars! Dr. Nguyen is hands down the BEST PEDIATRIC DENTIST I have ever met. From the moment you walk into her practice you can tell that she truly cares for patients. Her waiting room is perfectly stocked with fun activities to put your kids in a playful relaxed mood. My favorite part of her practice is how hands on she is with her patients, my daughter was quite nervous when we got there and after spending time with Dr. Nguyen and her staff she never wanted to leave! We will be making our next appointments very soon. I would highly recommend this office to anyone looking for quality and personal pediatric dental care.

Gemarie Guzman (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Nguyen was so patient with my daughter. She gave time for my daughter to warm up and get comfortable by letting her play for a bit. You could tell that she’s genuinely concerned for my daughter. I highly recommend her to anyone who has kids, especially little ones.

Leticia C. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)


As a mother of three I have definitely had my share of good and bad dentist appointments My littlest one is three years old we have had nothing but great experience here at Village pediatric dentistry the staff is so sweet and so patient and caring…My son gets super excited when I tell him I’m going to bring him to the dentist that speaks volume coming from a three-year-old I would definitely recommend this place highly to anyone that has small children or even big children this place is great

Ken H. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)


We have two boys and we were scheduled to go to our — let’s just say very popular — pediatric dentist earlier this month. Both kids got sick at the same time right before their checkup. I called to reschedule and the next opening wouldn’t be for another 2 months! So I decided to shop around and found that Village Pediatrics was right down the street from us. From the get-go, our experience with Village Pediatrics has been fantastic. The receptionist, Patty, was professional and easy to work with. We stopped by before making our appointment to check out the place. Turns out this is a brand new office built pretty much from scratch. The place is state-of-the-art and it’s very obvious it was built with your child’s emotions in mind. The waiting area is bright and calming. The seats/stations were all whimsical and fun. It feels super home-y. There are screens everywhere to distract your child from the matter at hand. Everything was clean, but more importantly, comfortable. We were excited to come back for our actual appointment. When we came for our appointment today, our boys were excited to be there. They had a relaxing time playing in the waiting room. It was a little difficult to tear them away from there, but once they got inside, they were even more mesmerized. They made great use of the headphones and the movie being broadcasted on the TVs in the ceiling. The headphones are a great touch — I think it helps immensely if they can’t hear the buzzing and whirling around them. The best part of the facility though is Dr. Nguyen. She was super patient and explained to us all the problem areas she found. She showed the kids how to brush their teeth in a way they would be able to understand and mimic. My older son is autistic and he walked in and out of there like he’s been coming to Village Pediatrics for years. My 2-year-old son started off frightened, but she made him feel so comfortable he wouldn’t leave her without a hug. I really can’t say enough great things about Dr. Nguyen and her practice. This facility is definitely the whole package.

David L. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very happy with our experience here. For crown procedure my daughter was able to pick a DVD to watch with headphones in private room. Rates are on par with the other pediatric specialist we’ve been to (i.e high, but what you gonna do). Dr. Aivan is friendly and likes to chat. Easy to get appointments since she is just starting this location. Just needs more Yelp reviews and word of mouth to get established!

James T. from Claremont, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Village Pediatric Dentistry. As a pediatrician, I know the importance of making sure the child is well taken care of. In addition, it’s also important to make sure the parents are taken care of well. Dr. Nguyen and her staff sure know how to deliver on both. Dr. Nguyen was amazing and made my 5 yo daughter feel at ease. In addition, Dr. Nguyen was patient and explained the concerns in a way that was easily understood. She was able to calm our fears and make us feel very comfortable. We never felt rushed, and it felt that her whole attention was on our family. To top it off, the office decor is warm and friendly. The office has state of the art technology as well. No question…5 stars. Thanks, Dr. Nguyen!

Betty P. from Rosemead, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Village Pediatric Dentistry.  I’m very glad to have found this place for my boys (3 and 4 years old).  The facility is clean and super child friendly.  There are toys, movies, prizes, everything a kid could want.  They are very patient with my kids and are super friendly.  Thank you Village Pediatric Dentistry for providing such wonderful and thoughtful service – a rare find in SGV!

Sophan U. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Nguyen and her team are AMAZINGGGG!!!  She’s very knowledgeable and informative, very caring, very patient, very fast and just all around REALLY great! She’ll let me sit there in the same room with my 3 year old Phebi and while she’s working on her she’ll let me know what is going on, what she is doing and why she’s doing it, communication is on point with Dr. Nguyen.  I wanted Phebi to have a good experience with the dentist and that’s exactly what happen when we left her office.  When I first walked I was surprised to see the learning toys, the tv on the ceiling, the headphones etc. This office is designed to work with and for the kids to be comfortable from the moment you walk in.  I LOVE LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT VALLEY VILLAGE PEDIATRICS! Don’t even bother continuing to look for another pediatrics dentistry just do it and go to Valley Village.

Amy S. from Temple City, CA (Source: Yelp)


We had been through the so much with other dentists by the time we got here. It had been over the course of the last 4 months due to my 4-year-old son needing some extensive work. I wanted to get another opinion before making the final decision for his treatment. I am so thankful that we came across Dr. Nguyen and her staff. She took the time to talk us through his dental and health history. She was honest about his prognosis but didn’t scare me like other dentists. The office is so welcoming and fun. My son was immediately relaxed when we walked in. I finally felt like I could make a decision on his treatment and I don’t want anyone else but Dr. Nguyen touching his teeth! Conveniently close to home but most importantly a doctor who is very professional, kind, compassionate and smart! She didn’t make me feel like the worst parent in the world because my kid has cavities which matters so much to me! Her staff is wonderful and welcoming, too! We are ready for the next step in this journey.

Denise R. from South Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is a wonderful kid friendly dental office where they go out of their way to make you feel welcome.  You will not regret bringing your kids here.  We are military and have moved many time.  Out of necessity, we have needed to see multiple dentists in each new place we have lived.  This dental office is one of the best we have been to.

Jeremy C. from Glendora, CA (Source: Yelp)


We brought our 13 month old daughter to Village Pediatric Dentistry for her first dental visit (our pediatrician advised us to do it once our daughter was 1 yr old) and we had a great experience. With this our first child and her first dental visit, we didn’t know what to expect. Dr. Aivan was excellent. While it did involve a quick examination to make sure everything looked good and a quick polishing/brushing, the visit was primarily about us getting information including what to expect with which teeth growing in when, how/when to brush (she gave us a recommended tooth brush to take home), and generally things to watch out for. And part of the examination also including showing how my wife and I could hold our daughter in the event we needed to check things out in her mouth. Plus, this first visit started that important process of building a relationship with a dentist so our daughter would feel comfortable going to the dentist. While there were a few tears during the examination, that was expected, and Dr. Aivan was so friendly and genuine, and just walked us through the whole process. The office was very clean, everything looks new and fresh. Lots for young kids to play with in the waiting room, screens at ever exam chair for older kids to be distracted during their exams, and they even had a special exam room set up just for infants. The receptionist was super friendly as well. So happy we’ve already found a dentist we are going to feel comfortable talking our daughter too!


Dr. Nguyen has always had a passion for learning and also the desire to serve the community. If our doctor wasn't a pediatric dentist, she would most likely be a teacher, helping students learn by organizing and color coding their study notes. Fortunately, she can combine her love of learning to equip her young patients with all the tools they need to learn good brushing and flossing skills. ​ In her free time, Dr Nguyen loves spending time outdoors whether it be hiking, jogging, deep sea fishing or snowboarding. She loves to spend time with family and friends and enjoys cooking. Our doctor also loves to read and loves to share her love of learning with her patients. Dr Nguyen didn't enjoy the comforts of a pediatric dentist when she was young and having a sweet tooth as a kid meant she had many visits to her dentist. Because of this experience, she understands the anxiety kids may have about dentistry and she wants to make sure her patients leave with as positive an experience as possible. ​ With fun games and prizes, she stealthily sneaks good oral hygiene into their daily habits. She is excited to share all your children's milestones with you, from their 1st dental visit, their first visit from the "tooth fairy" to their teenage years with braces and wisdom teeth. Every dental milestone can become a fun and memorable experience here!
