Meet Dr. Long Huynh
Originally from Vietnam, Dr. Long Huynh and his family immigrated to the United States as refugees when he was a young adult. Once here, he faced the challenge of learning English while pursuing his studies. A struggle with stuttering further complicated his academic endeavors, but through great perseverance, Dr. Long became the first and only member of his family to graduate from college.
Speaking a new language posed a professional challenge for him as well. In his early days as a dentist, Dr. Long often had to rely on the help of his dental assistant so that patients could understand his spoken English. Even through the language barrier, he was able to convey his care for his patients, which he discovered was more important than being able to communicate his knowledge with perfect articulation.
Building and maintaining a trusting relationship with his patients is at the center of his practice. When patients come to him with dental work from previous dentists with which they are unsatisfied, Dr. Long is honored to be trusted to make it right. He is passionate about changing the lives of his patients and alleviating their pain and suffering, especially through cosmetic smile makeovers and full-mouth restorations.
In 2013, Dr. Long passed the accreditation examinations with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry to become the only accredited cosmetic dentist in the Naples area. Click here for more information about Dr. Long’s AACD accreditation.
Dr. Long resides in Naples with his wife, Dr. Mai Huynh-Le, their three teenage children, Dawson, Daniel, and Katie, and their two dogs, Echo and Lilo. In his spare time, he enjoys fishing, gardening, and spending time in nature.
