Meet The Dentists

Gregg C. Hendrickson Dentist

dr-hendrickson“Since I can remember my passion has been dentistry”,  said Gregg Hendrickson when asked why he chose being a dentist as an occupation.

After I graduated from dental school in San Francisco–where by the way–we lived through the big earthquake of 1989, I moved back to Las Vegas to practice dentistry with my father.

My dad had been a dentist in Las Vegas since 1965.  He never meant to end up in Las Vegas but he was sidetracked on his way to Phoenix.  The weather was great compared to the Minnesota winters so I’m sure he thought Las Vegas was great.

I love dentistry and as soon as I was officially a dentist I began educating myself on the finer details of some of the subjects I learned in school.  I’ve always said, you come out of dental school an okay dentist, but to be a great dentist you have to continue to push yourself and learn new things from the best in the industry.

Our office was one of the first dental offices to use safer advanced imaging techniques.  We switched to digital X-rays shorty after I began.  Not only was this safer for patients and our dental team (always my top concern) but safer for the environment (no more chemicals down the drain).  Our office was the first to purchase and use the cone beam icat technology.  ICat technology is essential if you are a dentist placing dental implants.  You simply must have a dimensional view of the bone in the jaw to judge success.  There are many other areas where my office has exceeded the norm for standards.  I am proud of the way we use technology to make dentistry safer and better for our patients, our dental team and environment.

Another area I continue to exceed any type of licensing requirement is continuing education.  Education is the key to staying current,and  learning new and better techniques in dentistry.  As a dentist, I am committed to the best care for my patients in a comfortable and caring environment.  “My goal is to be the best dentist in the Henderson and Las Vegas area.”

Dental Implants and Being a Dentist

Early in my career as a dentist, I was fortunate enough to study  with dental implant guru, Dr. Carl Misch at the world renowned Misch International Implant Institute.  The Misch International Implant Institute is one of the most respected teaching organizations for dental implants and implant supported dentures in the world.  Dr. Misch taught me the proper way to place dental implants.  I will be forever grateful for his knowledge.

Recently I have studied with. Dr. Michael Pikos of the Pikos Institute for Surgical Excellence.  Here I have had the opportunity to study Implant Soft Tissue Grafting, Advanced Bone Grafting, Sinus Grafting for Implant Reconstruction and Complex Bone Grafting with some of the most talented dental surgeons in the world.  The information I have learned at the Pikos Institute has allowed me to successfully treat even the most difficult implant cases.

“I consider myself a very accomplished dentist in placing and restoring dental implants.  I have taken the time to learn and have trained with the best in the world.  I’m not done yet! That’s why dentistry is such a passion for me…I love the work and I love to learn.  Nothing satisfies me more than helping my patients be able to eat and enjoy life again.

Neuromuscular Dentistry

Dr Le has completed numerous courses on Neuromuscular Dentistry.  Neuromuscular Dentistry involves TMJ and bite issues, both of which cause pain.  She has helped relieve many patients from the puzzle of tmj pain and discomfort.  Neuromuscular issues are typically related to issues with teeth occlusion, jaw and muscle conditions.  Many times treatment can relieve pain right away.  Patients with these types of issues are encourage to schedule a complimentary consultation  to learn more about neuromuscular dentistry and how it helps.

Endodontics

“Continuing education has always been a goal of mine, ” Dr Le mentioned when coming to work as a dentist at Comprehensive Dental Care. The first course she took after graduation was Endodontic training with Dr. L. Stephen Buchanan at The Dental Education Laboratory in Santa Barbara, CA.  Dr. Buchanan is recognized as a leader in the field of Endodontics.  Dr. Le offers endodontic care to the patients and families of our office.

Invisalign

Dr. Le is a Preferred Provider of Invisalign.  I always loved the idea of Invisalign so when I completed dental school, it was at the top of my continuing education list. My Invisalign training prepared me for understanding the procedures necessary for moving teeth into alignment and still keeping the bite in the proper location.  As a dentist, I see the value in having a beautiful smile…it definitely gives you the advantage!
