Born and raised in the city of Las Vegas, Dr. R.J. is a true local.  He graduated from Cimarron-Memorial HS and completed his undergraduate and doctorate studies at UNLV.  Since then, he has made it his focus to provide the very best quality dental care to all of his patients.  He made the move to Dallas, TX for a few years, where he fell in love with BBQ and a beautiful lady named Audrey.  They then made their way back to Las Vegas to open Desert Inn Smiles with the goal of caring for the city and the community through dental care.

Dr. R.J. has spent a lot of his time outside of practice furthering his skills by way of continuing education.  He has taken numerous hours in many fields, but his primary focus for the past 5 years has been dental implantology, in which he has accumulated over 350 hours in the subject alone.  He is an educator and is a part of the Implant Know-How team and the Wehrle Implant Immersion Course, in which he is an instructor.

Dr. Audrey Nghiem

Originally from Mansfield, TX, Dr. Audrey is a native Texan.  She attended UT Arlington for undergrad, then went on to attend Baylor College of Dentistry.  Soon after graduation, she began working in Texas with a primary focus on kids.  It was in this time that she developed her love for pediatrics.   After 8 years of practicing, she decided that her calling was to go on to a pediatric dentistry residency and further develop her knowledge and skills.  She is currently in her 2nd year of her residency at the UNLV School of Dental Medicine.

Her passion is not only providing great dental treatment to children of all ages, but also for her family.  Dr. Audrey and Dr. R.J. have 2 amazing little boys named Jameson and Jackson.  They love to spend time together as a family as much as they can.
