He may be your favorite dentist, but how much do you really know about Dr. J. Fred Arnold? Dr. Arnold has lived in Kentucky for all of his life, except for the three years that he spent serving in the Air Force from 1984-1987. He and his wife Holly have raised their family here and wouldn’t dream of spending their life anywhere else. They particularly love the schools and the emphasis on arts and culture that Kentucky has to offer.
Ever since he was young, Dr. Arnold wanted to be a dentist. In addition, he had a family friend in the profession that further encouraged his love of dentistry.
He enjoys helping others, and he’s had his private practice here in Lexington since 1987.
One of Dr. Arnold’s passions is cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry. He’s spent numerous hours developing his skills and he’s even recognized as one of the leading cosmetic dentists in the country! In 2003, he became accredited. In fact, the examiners who evaluated his work were so impressed with it, that they invited him to join them as an accreditation examiner– a position he continues to hold. He officially became an Accredited Fellow of the AACD in 2006, which is the highest credential awarded in cosmetic dentistry. Finally, he became the chairman of the accreditation program in 2008.
Not only is he skilled, Dr. Arnold is gentle and he’s known for his kind bedside manner. Other dentists have even come to visit our office so that they can learn his gentle injection technique. If you’re a nervous patient, he does offer sedation because he wants everyone in his care to be as comfortable as possible.
