Dr. Manhvu Nguyen, DDS

Owner/School Director

My Friends call me Vu and I try my best to be a patient-centric dentist. I incorporate my patients’ desires and wishes into a tailored treatment plan that brings my patients the best value, without compromising quality. My practice of dentistry stems from the idea of treating patients like family members, with a friendly smile and genuine sense of care. I believe patient education and preventative care are the best ways to establish long lasting friendships as well as enjoyable dental check-ups. It brings me great satisfaction seeing a comfortable and happy patient leaving with a healthy smile! I was born and raised in Southern California that followed his passion to become a dentist at the University of Southern California, Fight on! Shortly after graduation, he made the move to Dallas, TX to pursue his passion to practice dentistry. He now owns his own practice and is co-owners with Drs. Nathan and Christine Coughlin, his classmates at USC, at Oakbrook Dental and Orthodontics.

Passion
I’m passionate about providing service and great dental care. I enjoy personal development for myself and my fellow staff members. It’s a great joy to see my staff, patients, and mentees become better at their craft and pursue their dreams. What Makes Me Happy In my free time, I enjoy staying up to date on advances in the dental field by attending various CE courses. But outside of these doors, you can find me chasing my 4 small furbabies, Coco, Alex, Ani and Louis as well as learning to become a better father to our two children, Ethan and Madison. I hope to continue traveling the world and embarking on new adventures with my lovely and amazing wife, Pam, who I’ve known since Kindergarten.

What Makes Me Happy
Learning new things every day and knowing I am expanding my dental career. I enjoy helping those around me feel confident and happy. I enjoy traveling and getting to know new food places around me.

Vanessa Brito

Admissions / Instructor / Lead Dental / Orthodontic Assistant

I was born in Dallas, Texas but have lived throughout the DFW area all my life. I have a family of 6 including my 11 year old maltese dog and 9 month old kitten. I stumbled upon the dental field and found out it was one of my greatest passions. I always knew the medical field was something I was greatly fond of, but was really surprised to see myself advance into the dental family. I have worked in the dental field for 5 years and am currently working to expand my knowledge by pursuing dental hygiene. I am thankful to my family for never giving up on me and guiding me to the right path. I look forward to bettering my career at Oakbrook Dental.

Passion
I have many passions in my life but the greatest is my job. I enjoy coming to work and knowing I am part of creating a beautiful and healthy smile. My greatest achievement is being successful in the dental field and expanding my knowledge in order to help those around me feel confident in their smile.

La Toya Adams

Admissions / Instructor / Lead Dental / Orthodontic Assistant

I was born and raised in a small town called Terry, MS. I’ve lived in north Texas for 7 years. I come from a family of 6. I have 2 older brothers and one younger sister. I have an amazing and supportive husband and together we have a beautiful one year old daughter. Before I started my journey in the dental field I was in retail management for 10 years. I’m so happy that I found something I really love to do. I have worked in the dental field for 4 years and I’m currently studying to become a Dental Hygienist. I look forward to many more awesome years in this field and to help and teach others.

Passions
My greatest passion is to continue bringing positive energy, drive, focus and support to my dental family. And when I say my “dental family” not only am I referring to the people I work with but any person that walks through those doors.

What Makes Me Happy?
Where do I start? Chick-fil-A !! Just kidding! Waking up, spending time with my family, traveling, crafting and gaining knowledge. I’m also happy that I found a career that will help me give people the confidence and beautiful smile that they deserve.
