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.
