J. Fred Arnold, III, DMD, FAACD
Dr. Fred Arnold is a proud native of Lexington, where he attended the University of Kentucky for both his undergraduate and doctorate degrees. Finishing his dental training with the highest distinction, Dr. Arnold went on to complete a General Practice Residency in the United States Air Force. In 1987, he returned to Lexington to begin in the practice that is Arnold Dental today.
Dr. Arnold is widely considered an expert in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. He is one of fewer than a hundred Accredited Fellows—the highest achievable credential—in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). He is a contributing editor for the Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry and has served as the accreditation chairman and accreditation/fellowship examiner for the AACD. Dr. Arnold is an assistant professor at the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry and has lectured all over the country, teaching other dentists how to practice the highest level of aesthetic dentistry.
In his free time, Dr. Arnold cherishes spending time with his wife, Holly, and three daughters. He loves to golf, snow ski, and play with his two dogs, Tate and Ruby. And he enjoys a nice glass of Kentucky bourbon.
