I have a soft heart for all kids and special-needs patients, because they are honest and innocent. I realize that each of my patients is at the stage in their life where they need help, encouragement, and compassionate guidance. As a pediatric dentist, I find joy in caring for my patients on a personal level. I want everyone to have a healthy and beautiful smile!
I understand that some children may feel apprehensive when it comes to being in a new space, like visiting the dentist. My goal, and that of our team, is to earn each child’s (and each parent’s) trust by providing high-quality care in a gentle and comfortable manner. We want to help our patients move from being anxious and scared to feeling happy and excited about coming to visit us.
I love getting to know my patients, along with their parents and siblings, on a personal level. It’s fun to learn about their interests and activities, to hear them talk about a favorite movie or sing a song they love. The conversations I have with patients, and the laughter we share, keep me young at heart.
We have an experienced, caring, and fun team, with each person bringing their own skills, interests, and love of smiles to the office. Our motto says it all: To perform our work with love and compassion, and to treat everyone — no matter their age — with professionalism and respect.

Beyond the Practice
I grew up here in Houston and am happy to be caring for young smiles in our community. My husband, Dr. Daniel Le, is the orthodontist in our practice; yes, we are partners in all things. When I’m not taking care of patients, teaching, or studying, I enjoy traveling, practicing yoga, Zumba classes, and traveling.
