Dr Khang Le (BDS) – Dentist
Dr Khang Le successfully attained his Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 1998 from Adelaide University and pursued his dental career in Private Practice in rural and metropolitan Tasmania for three years.
Dr Le performs most aspects of general dentistry and is passionate about cosmetic dentistry with a special interest in full mouth cosmetic rehabilitation and oral implantology. In Australia where there is no registerable specialty dedicated to dental implantology, Dr Le, like many of his colleagues with special interest in this field received his training and education by attending seminars, workshops and accreditations with various implant systems and study groups. He regularly travels interstate and overseas to receive training with the world’s best oral surgeons. He has had comprehensive training in dental implantology, sinus lift and bone grafting techniques.
Dr Le has attained accreditation by the ASID (Australian Society of Implant Dentistry) in level 1, 2 and 3 of Dental Implantology and has attended numerous seminars and workshops. He attends annual international workshops and seminars on the latest cosmetic dental procedures and oral implantology.
Dr Le is now a supervisor and teacher for the Trinon Collegeum Practicum. Dr Le is responsible for supervising and teaching Australian and international dentists on placing dental implants and oral surgery. These courses are held in Cambodia, Laos and the Dominican Republic.
It is Dr Le’s strong belief that dentures are ‘medieval’ and therefore he chooses not to make them for his patients unless they are being supported by implants. With modern dentistry patients have more advanced options for replacing teeth that are not only functional but comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.
In Dr Le’s spare time he enjoys fishing, cycling and travelling and spending time with his children. He looks forward to his annual fishing trip each year to The Great Barrier Reef.
