Plano Dentist Provides Free Day of Dentistry

RICHARDSON, TX--(Marketwired - September 30, 2015) - Dr. An Q. Le, a trusted Richardson dentist, will host a free day of dentistry at his practice, Northlake Dental, later this month.

Dr. Le, who works with multiple dental practices in the Dallas area, will join three other dentists on Sept. 26 to provide fillings, cleanings and extractions to adults at no cost. Patients will be treated on a first-come, first-serve basis. The event is intended to serve adults who are uninsured or underinsured.

"We’re excited to serve a population that otherwise would have gone without dental care," Dr. Le said. "I often see patients who have developed serious dental problems after years of skipped dental appointments or lack of dental insurance. This event allows us to treat those patients and give them a smile that they can be proud of." The local event, "Free Dentistry Day," was started by Dr. James Hill, a Dallas dentist who served the community for more than 40 years. Dr. Hill died in 2014, and Dr. Le decided to continue offering the event. Northlake Dental held an event similar to "Free Dentistry Day" in 2012, serving more than 80 patients.

Northlake Dental is located at 8535 Ferndale Road, Suite 14. Dr. Le will be joined by Drs. Levy T. Do, Vinh D. Nguyen and John I. Hanna.

"We have a team of talented clinicians ready to work with patients during this event to provide quality dentistry that will improve their oral health and overall health," Dr. Le said.

Dr. An Q. Le earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Austin and then received his dental degree from Baylor College of Dentistry. He holds memberships with the Texas Dental Association, North Texas Dental Society, American Dental Association and the Academy of GP Orthodontics. He also has completed hundreds of hours in continuing education to provide the latest techniques in dentistry.

In addition to North Lake Dental, Dr. Le operates Crystal Creek Dental and also practices at Fred Thompson, DDS, which is located south of Plano in Richardson.

Dr. Fred Thompson – 610 Old Campbell Road, Suite 116 – uses state-of-the-art technology to provide safe and quality dentistry. Dr. Thompson uses digital X-rays to reduce radiation exposure and cone beam computed tomography for diagnosis and to plan out dental implant procedures.

Dr. Thompson is a graduate of Baylor College of Dentistry and has been in dentistry since 1980. He is board certified with the American Board of Oral Implantology and is a fellow with the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. Dr. Thompson also is a graduate of the Misch International Implant Institute and had a practice in Las Vegas for 10 years.

Dr. Thompson has focused his continuing education on full-mouth reconstruction, oral surgery and cosmetic dentistry solutions. Dr. Thompson was an early adapter to dental implants and has placed more than 7,500 dental implants throughout the past 30 years. The practice uses dental implants to replace individual missing teeth or full arches of missing teeth. Dr. Thompson’s All-on-4 dental implants are strategically placed to provide maximum support for patients’ permanent teeth. The All-on-4 restorations also do not cover the palate or inhibit the patient from tasting food the way traditional dentures often do.
