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 services at his current home office, including:
Restorative/Preventative - Fillings, Cleanings, Sealants, and Crowns
Surgical - Extractions, Implants, Laser Tissue Surgery and Bone Grafting
Orthodontics – Invisalign® and Six Month Smiles®
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.
Jacob King is the director of Operations at Arte Dental. Jacob has been with the Arte Team for over three years. His daily activities include surgical implant planning, deciphering CT scans, liaison for surgical guides and radiology reports, handling complex treatment plans including major restoration and cosmetic cases, assisting in developing advanced Invisalign cases and more. He wears many hats at our offices, but his top priority is patient satisfaction. Jacob is here for you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so you are welcome to contact him at any time if there’s anything he can help you with. His phone number is (214) 470-1024.
Amanda is a dental hygienist who takes great care of the patients at our Little Elm and McKinney locations. She graduated from the Lamar Institute of Technology in May of 2015, where she mastered the art of scaling with a gentle hand. Prior to, and also during, her preparation to becoming a hygienist, Amanda also worked as a dental assistant for about five years.
Carol is the office manager at our Little Elm office. With more than 30 years of experience in the medical and dental fields, Carol brings a wealth of knowledge and skills to a practice that encourages excellence and compassion for its patients. She enjoys interacting with all the guests who walk through our doors and takes pride in making them feel comfortable for their appointments. In her spare time, she enjoys keeping her landscape perfectly manicured and reading.
McKenzie runs the front office at our McKinney location, so she will typically be the first person to welcome you when you arrive. She came to us for a simple 40 hour externship through her dental assisting program, but we managed to reel her in after that. She is trained in dental assisting, front desk coordinating and insurance/billing. "Kenz" has been a valuable asset to our team and we look forward to many years of her continued growth and service with Arte Dental.
Lane is your go to gal for any insurance and/or billing questions you may have. She is also one of our multi tasking, cross trained employees that is not only skilled at handling just about any front desk duty that comes her way, but she is also a state licensed Registered Dental Assistant. Lane joined us early 2017, but we're excited to see what her future holds at Arte Dental.
Jessica is our senior assistant at our McKinney office. She takes charge in ensuring that everything runs smoothly in the "back of the house." She's also our iTero scanner and Invisalign expert.
Michelle is one of our McKinney office’s three excellent registered dental assistants. Her special skills include gentle assisting and lively conversation. She's always happy and eager to help the next patient.
Michelle has been a part of our team for over four years and is one our most experienced registered dental assistants. Patients appreciate her gentle and compassionate chair-side manner. She is quick to make patients feel at ease by building confidence, trust, and a personal friendship with them. Her understanding nature and openness make it easy for our guests to feel comfortable. Michelle enjoys spending time with her husband and three year old son.
Adela is our lead assistance and has worked with Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Le for over four years. Being able to interact with and help patients on a daily basis is a rewarding experience to her.

She spends her free time with her husband and family.

Andrew is also on his way to becoming a registered dental hygienist. His sister, sister-in-law, and brother-in-law are all dentists, so you can say he married in to the wonderful world of dentistry.
