Meet Dr. Nicole Van Le
Dr. Van Le believes that a dentist is only as good as the extent of their training, so she devotes her time to studying new developments in dental technology and participates in study clubs dedicated to current dental research. She believes dentistry at its best involves working with people and goes beyond merely treating teeth.
Dr. Van Le graduated from Indiana University in Bloomington in 1994. She earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Indiana University School of Dentistry 1998.
Dr. Van Le has been practicing family and cosmetic dentistry in Indianapolis for more than eighteen years. She is a member of the American Dental Association, Indiana Dental Association, and the Indianapolis District Dental Society.
Dr. Van Le resides in Fishers with her husband and two daughters. She participates in donating dental services for organizations that focus on children in need. She is also active in the childrens ministry through her church.
On September 19th, 2017 our 4th annual dental charity event with TeamSmile took place at the the Indianapolis Colts' pratice facility. Our team and other dentists and dental volunteers provided free dental care to about 300 underserved children from local Indianapolis schools. We try to distract the kids from the dental care with athletes, cheerleaders, mascots, fun games, music & a DJ, and heatlh education. It's fun for all the kids and adults!

Mary Krajicek, D.D.S | Associate Dentist
We welcomed Dr. Mary Krajicek (cry-check) to our Fort Ben office in July 2017. Starting in February, you will be seeing her at our Greenfield office as well!
Dentistry runs in the family, as she is a fourth generation dentist! Currently, her father is practicing dentistry in California along with her younger sister. Interestingly, her sister, sister-in-law and she all graduated from the same dental school. You won’t get away without flossing in this family!
Dr. Krajicek was born and raised in California, completing her undergraduate degree at University of San Diego, magna cum laude. She then graduated from Creighton University School of Dentistry located in Omaha, NE in 2014. It is there that she met and married her husband, Eddie. After graduation, they moved to Rochester, MN where she worked at a non-profit for 3 years before relocating to Indianapolis last summer for Eddie’s job.
She and her husband are avid travelers, having visited 5 continents between them both. In fact, part of her undergraduate was completed while abroad in Australia. In her free time, Dr. Krajicek enjoys cooking new recipes, exploring new restaurants and bars, skiing, and any kind of water sport.
