Dr. Nguyen’s Bio
Dr. Nguyen is a native of Saigon, Vietnam but has spent most of his youth in Brussels, Belgium. He earned his Bachelor degree in Dental Sciences in 1997 from the Catholic University of Louvain, in Brussels, Belgium. He subsequently earned a Certificate in Endodontics and Master of Science in Dentistry degree in 2001 from Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH. From 2001 to 2008, Dr. Nguyen was a full-time Assistant Professor in the Department of Endodontics at both the University of Maryland, Baltimore College of Dental Surgery and the Oregon Health and Science University School of Dentistry.
Dr. Nguyen is an Adjunct Professor of Endodontics at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, Master at the World Clinical Laser Institute and an active member of the American Association of Endodontists & American Dental Association.
Dr. Nguyen is fluent in English, French and Vietnamese. He travels around the world to lecture 50-days a year, about clinical endodontics and practice management. He currently practices at Polaris Dental Specialists, a multi-specialty practice in Beaverton & Salem, OR, USA.
I developed Root Camp to help general practice dentists perform 90% of their Molar Root Canal Treatments in-house by following a structured, predictable clinical approach resulting in a faster & more profitable outcome!
Dr. Nguyen “Win”
Root Camp … Ultimate Profits from Optimal Patient Care … A “Nguyen Nguyen” Proposition
ROOT CAMP was founded by Dr. Nguyen “Win” who built a series of courses as an extension of the original training dentists undertook, which is to serve and heal patients. His unrelenting drive requires balance within 3 areas: practicing clinician, business owner and academician. He however clearly understands the struggles of dental practitioners and developed 4 courses to improve quality of life, through preserving the 2 things that no one could ever buy … TIME and HEALTH, for both patients and Doctors. A true “Nguyen Nguyen” proposition.
The “a la carte” approach to the various modules allows clinicians of all backgrounds and proficiency levels to find the judicious combination that fits their schedule, learning needs and clinical wants.
Level I - Endodon-Tricks and Surg & Rescue
In Root Camp Level 1, learn over 2 days, the skills to tackle calcified molars, retreatments and entry-level apical surgeries. Interactively presented is a tsunami of information that reiterate the core principles of clinical Endodontics, and highlight the latest and greatest innovations, from a sciencesupported standpoint but with a clinically-relevant and patientcentered approach. Small class size allows each participant to remain engaged and their questions answered in depth. This first step in the Root Camp Series provides the “why” behind the “how” and equips attendees not only with clearcut protocols but also the knowledge that they each need to trouble shoot the day-to-day challenges of modern clinical Endodontics. Level I culminates with a hands-on workshop that focuses on how to complete molar RCTs in 30-minutes.
Level II - Advanced Cadaver “Mud Run” Course
The 3-day “Mud Run” cadaver workshop teaches clinical stepby-step protocols, using an array of systems and materials in a model that most closely simulates a live patient. Doctors and their support teams are taught proficiency at rendering patient-centered, high-quality, effective, efficient and highlyprofitable endodontic care. Extensive hands-on “in-thetrenches” learning is limited to 8 teams. “Large weapons” such as CBCT, Dental Operating Microscope and Laser are provided to each team. A true “Immersion Experience.”
Level III - W3P4
Known as The Coaching Program, “Work 3 Play 4” adds the business and practice management perspective to the initial 2 phases of the Root Camp Course Series. W3P4 involves one on-one coaching over 6-months. Business strategies built on skills previously leaned are implemented and tracked closely to ensure matching outcomes. Plan reviews and continual coaching ensure that systems ultimately optimize both human and financial resources. The end-in-mind of W3P4 is to allow practitioners to stop the “live-to-work rat race”, and focus on “work to live” instead and enjoy a 4-day week-end.
Level IV - Mini-Residency
Known as “The Works”, the 12-month Mini-Residency pulls together levels I, II and III in an intensive week-by-week program highlighted by scientific literature review, case presentations and in-depth literature-based discussions. The goal of the Mini-Residency is to enable each Doctor with the necessary science to support the “Why” and “How” provided in Levels I through III, and therefore forge the true and complete Endodontic Experts whose sole goals should be to do “whatever it takes” to save the “Natural Implant”.
