Meet the Staff at Arte Dental

Dr. William Nguyen

Dr. William Nguyen is one of two owners of Arte Dental, along with his wife, Dr. Hieu Le. He was named one of America’s Best Dentists in 2014 and it shows in his work. Dr. Nguyen treats every patient as if they were family and even provides an annual Free Dental Day for people that are not financially able to have their treatment done, as seen on WFAA News. He takes his time to make sure every patient is as comfortable as possible and uses techniques that nearly eradicate any operative pain associated with dentistry. Over 90% of our patients finish treatment with no noticeable pain.

With his great sense of humor and open attitude, Dr. Nguyen is extremely easy to talk to. He is always willing to answer your questions honestly and in a manner that is simple to understand. Since he operates with impeccable integrity, he always welcomes second opinions. You can count on Dr. Nguyen to give you a fair and conservative diagnosis.

Dr. Nguyen’s Background, Education, and Specialties

As he grew up in Arlington, Dr. Nguyen realized in high school that he wanted to become a dentist. He attended Temple College of Dentistry in Pennsylvania from 2004 to 2008 and earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD). Dr. Nguyen spent his first year out of school perfecting the art of root canals.

In 2011, Dr. Nguyen opened his first practice, Arte Dental. He spent the next three years at Arte Dental Dallas, primarily performing pediatric dentistry, general dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry. After deciding it was time to open an office closer to home, he built Arte Dental McKinney in the summer of 2014. He offers a wide range of dentistry ranging from general dentistry (fillings, cleaning, etc) to dental implants and Invisalign orthodontics.

Dr. William Nguyen and Dr. Hieu Le

Dr. Hieu Le

Visit Arte Dental in Little Elm to see Dr. Hieu Le, named one of America’s Best Dentist in 2014 and one of Living Magazine’s™ official “Super Docs” for 2015. Dr. Le is one of the most gentle and compassionate doctors you will ever meet. Her top priority is your comfort and dental care. She is experienced in providing gentle care to patients ranging from six months old to their upper 80s.

After graduating from Temple College of Dentistry in 2008, she has spent a full year or more in offices that specialize in pediatric dentistry, endodontics (root canals) and general dentistry (restorative, fillings, crown, etc.) A huge benefit of working with a dentist that has extensive experience in so many fields of dentistry is that she is always prepared to handle anything.

Thanks to her diverse skill set, you’re much less likely to play the “run around referred out” game. If you need a wisdom tooth extracted, she’s got it. Root canal? No problem. Need an implant? Her implants are precision placed to the millimeter. No matter what your dental needs are, Dr. Le is here for you.

Dr. Ka Park

Dr. Park is a native Texan, who earned her Bachelor’s degree in biology at The University of Texas in Dallas.  She then went on to one of the country's highest rated dental schools, Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, where her Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree (DMD) was obtained. After graduation, Dr Park returned to the Dallas area and began working in a private practice.  

Dr. Park's passion for providing every single patient with the highest level of care, is what peaked our interest.  She joined Arte Dental in the Spring of 2017 at our Little Elm office.  She truly has been a blessing to have as a team member, as her desire for dental perfection and patient comfort is remarkable.

Dr. David Joung

Dr. David Joung graduated magna cum laude from Illinois Wesleyan University with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology.  Upon completion of his undergraduate studies, he attended University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine where he received his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree in 2013.  After graduation, he completed his residency at University of Pittsburgh in Advanced Education in General Dentistry.  Dr. Joung and his wife, along with their two dogs, moved to Dallas in 2016 and has been working in the area ever since.

Dr. Joung was born in South Korea and grew up in the Philippines, then he spent his adult life in different parts of the U.S.  Having encountered many cultures and people of various backgrounds, he understands that every patient is different and is compassionate to their needs as individuals.  He looks forward to catering to the different needs of his patients in an effort to make every visit as pleasant and pain free as possible.
