Le Dental Spa Story

Founded on the vision of helping people better their lives. We strive to improve the dental experience focusing on each individual to achieve and maintain optimal health and happiness. There are no “one-size-fits-all” rushed appointments or quick-fix treatments. Aiming to simplify smile care, we invest in quality products to deliver long-term results addressing the source instead of the symptom. We take pride in getting to know our patients so we can provide care that fits your lifestyle and eliminates the barriers of achieving their ultimate smile.

Our team goes above and beyond to ensure that each patient has access to luxurious care and quality service. We understand that trust is earned; it is not something you can buy or take from someone else. We pride ourselves on creating a safe environment where we get to know our patients before making any decisions are made on their treatment plan.

I was born In Hawaii and raised in Jacksonville, FL, where I consider my hometown -DUUUVAL! My parents immigrated from Vietnam making me a proud first generation American. Seeing first hand how my parents made something out of nothing always fueled and inspired me. I grew up working in their businesses, where I admired the opportunities my parents provided for others. After graduating from NSU Dental School in 2017, I moved back to Jacksonville because of the support this city has shown my family for decades.

My early stages of practicing dentistry consisted of the bread and butter of dentistry and patient care. I realized my patients had pain points no one else intentionally tried to resolve -it was the basics that no one took out the time to share, from brushing to flossing. I really honed in on actively listening, getting to know my patients daily habits, and their lifestyle goals. I wanted to do more than “drill and fill,” I wanted to be part of their lifestyle changes for the long-term. It’s fulfilling to see how God gave me certain tools to help heal such small parts of my patient’s lives but how impactful it is in the bigger picture of their personal and professional lives.

I decided to continue my education in neuromodulator (Botox) and dermal filler training with the American Academy of Facial Esthetics when I found myself experiencing the same symptoms many of my patients were struggling with. I clench my teeth and so many of my patients suffer from facial pain not directly caused by the teeth themselves; I felt limited with with the treatment options I learned in dental school leading me to continue onto upper level training to comprehensively treatment plan for my patients to get to an ideal goal.

"

My treatment plans consist of targeting any foundational gum issues, restoring any cavities and cracks, aligning and balancing how my patient’s teeth come together, cosmetic porcelain veneers, and the framework of it all with injectable services like Botox, fillers, and PDO threads. As I gained a passion for this area of my practice, I asked myself, “how do I help more people with the limited time and physical barriers I have?” The answer to that was to onboard as a faculty instructor for the AAFE, travel to teach other dentists, doctors, and nurses, to spread the knowledge and skills to help more patients across the nation. From there, I am able to truly help patients make lifestyle changes and minimize facial pain and headaches that keep them from living their fullest life.

The challenges on my journey did not stop me from building out a practice that encompasses values that not only align with mine but also with my patients. I’ve created (with tremendous help) an atmosphere of excellence in dentistry, where patient-dentist relationships are based on education, encouragement, and empowerment, motivating each person to achieve their fullest potential in life. I strive to go above and beyond what is expected from me as a practitioner by staying up-to-date on studies, techniques, materials, and technologies -when you know better, you do better.

Personal and professional lessons have given me the valuable insight needed to better understand how best to meet my patient’s needs and treat them as a human because I’ve been treated with the same grace on my own journey. No matter who or where you come from we all need our smile -both esthetically and medically -to live a balanced and healthy life feeling beautiful and confident.

My desire to improve lives goes beyond dentistry. I want to see everyone around me living out their fullest lives. My balanced life consists of growing as a leader in my businesses, serving my patients, and indulging in quality time with my friends and family as I travel, eat, hike, and snowboard my way through the world. It’s not what you’re doing or where you’re at, it’s the company you experience it with. Thanks for doing life with me!

Spa Administrator
Originally from Fort Lauderdale, I had the wonderful opportunity to move to Jacksonville in 2017 after graduating dental hygiene school. I continued my education at St. Petersburg College to attain my Bachelors of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene. I study new technologies, hygiene products, and attend continuing education classes regularly. As a dental hygienist, my main focus is educating patients on how to maintain great oral health and providing high quality care in the dental office. As Le Dental Spa has grown, I’ve transitioned and expanded my talents as our office manager where I am actively committed to making your experience a comfortable and positive one. I listen to your concerns and help plan for a healthy future. I love spending time with my husband and 2 beautiful little girls -1 being a new addition and the other a charismatic carbon copy who will soon be 2 years old. I enjoy staying active and competitive by attending indoor cycling classes but also love balancing that love with the occasional Dunkin’ run. I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach your goals!

As a graduate of FSCJ’s hygiene program, I have been serving the Jacksonville community as dental hygienist for the past 10 years. I moved from my hometown of Jacksonville, NC in 2009 and continue to fall in love with everything the area has to offer. After working with Dr. Le in 2019 and discovering our shared beliefs of how dentistry should be, I was excited to join the team in July of 2022. I understand that each patient is unique, which is why I take immense pride in providing tailored advice and treatments to ensure my patients feel cared for and secure in their dental decisions. With every appointment, I not only help you maintain a healthy mouth but also work with you on any anxieties or worries you may have about your dental visits. My exceptional problem-solving skills and attention to detail allow me to take charge of situations and find innovative solutions to complex problems. I am dedicated to creating an atmosphere where my patients can relax, smile, and feel at home. I love soaking up quality time with my 2 rescued pit-mixes. I stay involved in the rescue community assisting with locating and trapping missing pets and working with shy dogs to help them find forever homes. My favorite days are spent outdoors and enjoying the simpler things in life with friends and family.

With every new patient that walks into our doors, we are able to help an at-risk teen transition into independent living by providing what we call a “rise over run” kit consisting of basic essentials. Life is a constant slope and we want to help them rise versus run when faced with challenges. We thank each and every one of our patients who has chosen to be a part of this journey with us.
