Dr. Peter Le 

 Dr. Peter Le  is a California native from Westminster, CA. He attended Thomas Edison State University for his Bachelor of Arts in Natural Science and Mathematics while serving in the

United States Navy. He then graduated from A.T. Stills University- Missouri School of Dentistry and Oral Health where he received his Doctor of Dental Medicine and Certificate of Public Health.

Dr. Le has always had a thirst to help people achieve good health, and this ultimately put him on a path to discover dentistry. Dentistry has allowed him to delve into his passion for healing those in pain, and bringing a smile to the faces of those he helps is only icing on the cake!
His favorite thing about being a dentist is the combination of medicine, materials, and art in one field to take a patient out of pain, control oral disease or to simply rejuvenate a smile. Being able to help heal people and work with his hands is as rewarding as it gets.

Dr. Le enjoys physical activities such as working out, running or hiking. He likes to spend time in the kitchen cooking new and exciting recipes when he’s not in the office or taking care of patients.

Dr. Le is member of the following Professional Affiliations:
• American Dental Association
• California Dental Association
