Dr. Nikita Goyal, DDS
Dr. Goyal grew up right here in New Mexico. She completed her undergraduate training at the University of New Mexico where she studied Biology and graduated Magna Cum Laude. She earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2014 from the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine. While there, she earned an award for “Best Hand Skills,” an honor that she attributes to her lifelong passions of painting and drawing. Throughout her graduate studies, Dr. Goyal focused on Rural Health Dentistry and took the opportunity to obtain additional training in Emergency and Trauma Dentistry in Bethel, Alaska.
After obtaining her Dental Degree, Dr. Goyal returned to New Mexico where she spent several years at a community health care clinic providing her trademark compassionate care to underserved patient groups right here in Albuquerque.

Tuyet-Phi Truong, DMD
Dr. Tuyet-Phi Truong earned her Bachelor of Science degree in General Biology at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). After graduation, she put her education on hold to help support her family financially. At that time, she worked in a few prestigious research facilities where she published over ten scientific articles through her affiliations with The Scripps Research Institute and Stanford University. After almost a decade of working in research, her interest in dentistry began when she needed an emergency root canal. The dental care she received brought back memories of when she helped run a free medical clinic in Ensenada, Mexico for two years. Her experience receiving immediate relief of dental pain reminded her of her initial passions for helping people and developing meaningful patient relationships. She realized that these benefits were not things a research environment could provide. At that moment, she decided to return to school to fulfill her true purpose.
Dr. Truong obtained her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree with an emphasis on Public Health from Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health (ASDOH). ASDOH’s unique dental curriculum provided experiences at several community clinics in underserved regions of Alaska, Montana, Washington, and Oregon. After graduating from dental school as a National ...See Complete Bio
