Meet the Doctors
Meet Dr. Patrick Tay
Dr. Patrick Tay was born in Erie, Pennsylvania. Over the years, he has lived in North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, Michigan, and now Texas. Moving from place to place has allowed him to meet many wonderful people across the country. He is excited to finally settle down in Leander and is looking forward to building long-term relationships with his patients. His laid-back personality makes him approachable and easy to get along with.
After working as an associate dentist for many years, Dr. Tay decided to open Apple Springs Family Dentistry so he could be you and your family’s dentist for years to come. He wants to be the kind of dentist who you know you’ll be seeing every time you come to the office, and who you trust to not compromise on quality. He believes that providing excellent dental care requires life-long commitment to continuing education, so he is constantly reading and learning about the latest treatment techniques and technology.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Tay enjoys watching sports, especially football and basketball. One of his favorite annual traditions is competing against his friends in fantasy football. He also enjoys going out to meet new people, exploring the city of Austin with his wife, and visiting his family in Vancouver, Canada.

Meet Dr. Vyna Nguyen
Dr. Vyna Nguyen was born in Vietnam and moved to Rochester, NY with her family when she was 11 years old. Having grown up with eight siblings, Dr. Nguyen knows how important it is to take care of loved ones. That is why at Apple Springs Family Dentistry, she is committed to providing quality dentistry that patients can trust.
After completing her doctoral degree at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Nguyen completed her one-year General Practice Residency at Sacred Heart Hospital in Allentown, Pennsylvania. She treated patients both within and outside of a hospital setting, and her experience there was rich and humbling. Like Dr. Tay, she also believes in taking continuing education classes and reading about the latest techniques to deliver the best possible treatment to her patients.
After several years of associating, Dr. Nguyen is excited to open Apple Springs Family Dentistry along with her husband, Dr. Tay. She is looking forward to meeting you and your family.
