Last week, we reported that Queensboro Plaza Dental Care will be opening at 42-15 Crescent Street.1 We had a chance to speak with the owner of the office, Dr. Michael Nguyen about his new dental practice:
1. Tell us about Queensboro Plaza Dental Care.
This practice is a realized dream for me and my wife that we’ve been planning since 2015, when I moved back to New York after serving 6 years as a U.S. Navy Dental Officer. After thorough research, we found a great ground floor space in LIC, secured project financing, and partnered with industry specialists to design a beautiful practice built with comfort and efficiency in mind. We are excited to open a truly “mom-and-pop” business that will offer a refreshing dental experience.
2. What is your philosophy behind your practice?
In a clinical sense, I practice comprehensive care for my patients using the latest technology (like 3-D digital X-rays and dental implants) for maximum quality, comfort, and affordability. I believe in partnering with patients to make treatment decisions based on lifestyle and budget needs.
However, I think it’s safe to assume that almost any dentist you go to will know what he is doing and genuinely care about his patients. I’m a firm believer that the best value proposition one can make for today’s busy dental patients will be based on comfort and convenience. Hence the popularity of apps and services like Seamless, Uber, and online banking. And that’s why our practice will offer:
- Early morning, late evening, and weekend hours;
- Online appointment scheduling, and online registration forms you can submit from home or on our office iPads;
- Easy communication with our practice via phone, email, text, or Facebook Messenger;
- And amenities such as complimentary beverages, neck pillows, ceiling TVs in the treatment rooms, free Wifi, and more.
3. Why did you pick Court Square?
I chose to locate in Court Square/Queens Plaza because of the area’s rapid growth and easy accessibility. We recognized a real need for healthcare amenities here, and our office is conveniently located right around the corner from the Queensboro Plaza subway station (N, W, 7 trains). The office also sits in view of the landmark CitiGroup building to the south. My late father worked as a general counsel for CitiGroup at the Long Island City tower for many years, so there are sentimental memories for me in this area.
4. When do you plan on opening?
We are happy to announce our Grand Opening will be May 21, 2018. We will start accepting new patient appointment bookings starting May 1st. For the meantime, we invite you to visit our website and connect with us on Facebook and Instagram for updates.
