Angela S. Christian, RDH, BS
After graduating from Thomas W. Kelly High School, I continued my education at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene.
My husband and I have two children. Spending time with my family and friends is an important part of my life. My summers are spent at the ballfields cheering for my favorite baseball and softball players. In my free time, I enjoy playing the piano.
My favorite part of being a dental hygienist is the joy that I feel when I am educating and taking care of my patients. It is important that each one feels special, cared for and happy as they leave their dental appointment. I strive to do the very best that I can so that each patient leaves with their teeth feeling clean and with a shiny, beautiful smile!
Marissa Morgan, RDH
I completed my Dental Hygiene degree from Missouri Southern University in Joplin, Missouri. Spending time with family, traveling, and doing outdoor activities is my favorite way to spend my time outside of the office. I also really enjoy trying international cuisines and my favorites are Indian and Thai foods! The most rewarding part of dentistry for me is being able to help and support our patients on their smile transformation journey.
I graduated from Cary Senior High School in Cary, North Carolina. I continued my education at Meredith College in Raleigh, North Carolina. I currently reside with my husband and pets in my hometown in Southern Illinois.
I began dental assisting in 1990, and I have been working to better my patients oral health for 32 years now. My favorite part of being an assistant is being able to ease patients’ anxiety and put them in a more relaxing environment.
My hobbies include dog training and caring for my animals. I also enjoy hanging out with friends and family in my spare time.
I was born and raised in the Gateway to the West: Saint Louis! I received my bachelor’s degree in global studies in 2022, where I enjoyed teaching English to the incoming freshmen at my alma mater, SEMO. I studied abroad in Okinawa, Japan, where I excelled and broaden my cultural perspective.
I joined the Cape Girardeau Dentistry team in June of 2023. It brings me great joy to help our patients find their happy and healthy smile. I take pride in maintaining the efficiency and cleanliness of our office, as well as the satisfaction of our clientele.
In my free time, I am constantly exploring different genres of writing. I also love baking and cake decorating—as long as I get to eat it after!

Upon graduation from Cape Central High school, I continued my education locally at Southeast Missouri State University. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. Watching and supporting my three children play their favorite sport is a favorite of mine.

Dentistry allows me to connect with people on a personal level and help them fulfill their goals for their dream smile.

Dr. Nguyen is an excellent dentist. I have had the best experiences with Dr. Nguyen when it comes to taking care of my dental needs. Dr. Nguyen is very understanding, comforting and welcoming when he meets with you. The dental assistant are very welcoming and comforting as well as they answer any questions you may have. The secretary support is amazing as well. I have family from an hour away and I tell them to come see him.
The dentist and associates are so nice and make you feel comfortable. The dentist is very gentle..I had two extractions and I didn't feel any pain. This will be my go to dentist office!!
I had an emergency, my tooth broke off, they worked me in the same day. Always a very friendly staff, professional & personable. The only con is I have to wait over a month to get my new crown. Otherwise everything is 5*.
They know I get very nervous at the dentist. Dr Nguyen and his staff go out of their way to reassure me, while doing a wonderful job with my dental needs.. I appreciate them all.
