About Me

I’m Dr. Katie To, a biological and cosmetic dentist and a champion of practices that enhance holistic wellness.

Here at The Wellness Dentist, I’ve curated a comprehensive resource to support any stage of your journey. You’ll find encouragement, tips, podcasts and coaching to advance your knowledge and personal health. My goal is to provide the support you need—whether these ideas are brand new or a healthy lifestyle is already in practice.

Your physical, emotional and spiritual health are intrinsically connected, and because of this cohesive nature, these centers of wellbeing require a balanced approach. I find that it’s important to target all three dimensions and incorporate consistent routines that strengthen this unity. For example, I prioritize Peloton workouts, morning and evening meditations, gratitude journaling and a nourishing diet. My career and personal life benefit greatly from consistent wellness routines, and I love sharing the productivity and lifestyle tips that work for me.

As someone who’s lived in both the Eastern and Western Hemispheres, my wellness calling is inspired by a variety of life experiences. I was born in Vietnam where my love for wellness rituals and routines began. I’m thankful for an early introduction to wholesome recipes, acupuncture, herbal remedies and meditation practices. In more recent years, I’ve refined my approach to holistic health after a personal struggle with infertility. Through extensive testing, my medical team confirmed that mercury and heavy metal toxicity from years of practicing traditional dentistry affected my path to a healthy pregnancy. This was a major turning point for me. I said goodbye to traditional dentistry methods and pursued healing for myself and my patients through biological dentistry.

Today, I’m proud to be a biological and cosmetic dentist and the owner of ​The Center for Integrated Wellness and Cosmetic Dentistry in Katy, Texas.

My team and I target the root causes of patient ailments instead of quick fixes for symptoms. We transform smiles through nontoxic cosmetic dentistry as the first and only practice with Digital Smile Design (DSD) technology in Katy. Our commitment to holistic dental hygiene is a top priority, and we share this passion with patients of all ages.
I am married to Dr. Bar Nguyen, a board-certified orthodontist who recently joined my practice team. After a difficult journey to parenthood, we now have a wonderful son, Bailey. He brings so much joy to our lives, and I’m passionate about teaching him how to experience health and happiness through wellness. I enjoy traveling, dental photography, Peloton rides and spending time with family. My most recent wellness aspiration includes training toward certification as a yoga instructor.

I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Texas at Arlington with a Bachelor of Science in biology. My pursuit of dentistry began at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA) where I received distinction in research and awards in cosmetic dentistry. I am an Academy of General Dentistry Fellow (FAGD), the youngest Master of Biological Dentistry within the International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine (IABDM) and the first female to hold the professional title of Master of Smile Design in the DSD network. With a passion to share this expertise, my coaching sessions at ​KT Dental Seminars guide industry professionals through training, certifications and online masterclasses.

Here at The Wellness Dentist, I find immense purpose in helping others experience the benefits of holistic health. Dentistry is my passion and wellness is my calling, and through this platform, I hope you find the tools and strategies to take the next step in your wellness journey.
