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 for 7 years 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. 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. Most of his patients finish treatment with no noticeable pain or discomfort.
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). 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, crowns, extractions, etc) to dental implants and Invisalign orthodontics.
Dr. Hieu Le
Dr. Hieu Le is one of America’s Best Dentist the past 7 years and one of Living Magazine’s™ official “Super Docs” for 5 years. 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 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. 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.
