Meet Dr. Alex Thanh
Dr. Alex is a board-eligible pediatric dentist who graduated from the University of Florida’s College of Dentistry, where he also chose to go on and train an additional two years at UF’s Pediatric Dentistry Residency – Naples. Before dentistry, Dr. Alex earned his bachelor’s degree in Zoology at the University of Florida – thus making him a TRIPLE GATOR! Dr. Alex cultivated his passion for pediatric dentistry by organizing overseas mission trips to treat underserved populations while in dental school and today continues to spend some of his free time volunteering. Dr. Alex is a strong advocate for prevention and education but understands that when treatment is needed it should be done in the safest and least traumatic manner possible – which is why he takes his training in sedation dentistry very seriously, regularly keeping up with emergency training and airway management.
Dr. Alex was born right here in Orlando, FL., and is beyond happy to be home practicing near his family and friends. In his free time, he loves to cheer on his beloved Gators and goes to support his hometown sports teams – Go Orlando City! Go Magic! & Go Solar Bears! Dr. Alex is an avid hiker and has set a goal to travel to all the national parks in the United States (his favorite so far is Glacier National Park). Dr. Alex is looking to turn the “tables” on his fellow doctors by getting them off the track and court to beat them in table tennis, table soccer, and billiards!
