Life & Hobbies

After completing dental school, Dr. Nugent joined a practice in Altus, OK, but was excited to return to Duncan in 2011. Shortly after My Dentist-Duncan opened, Dr. Nugent and his team provided free dental services in a mobile dental unit for the Baptist Church in Comanche, OK. He enjoys giving back to his community and had an amazing response to Free Dental Day in 2015. Dr. Nugent also enjoys providing Head Start dental exams each year. For the last two years, Dr. Nugent and his staff have participated in the Fiesta at Fuqua and provided back-to-school exams and education.

While attending Idaho State University, he met his wife, Becca. She had just received her Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene when he met her. They married in 2007 and were blessed with twin boys in 2013! Dr. Nugent's family is the light of his life!

In his spare time, Dr. Nugent loves to hunt and fish. He serves faithfully in his church and loves to watch OU football!
