Dr. Thinh Le
Dentist

Dr. Thinh Le

What I love most about this profession is that I have the privilege to get to work with and meet so many great people. There is nothing I enjoy more than to see kids come through the office for their first dental visit and leave with a great big smile; or from a patient celebrating an anniversary to the birth of a new baby, being able to share in these milestones makes dentistry so rewarding for me.
