Dr. Lee was always interested in the medical field and his own family dentist encouraged him to consider dentistry. His dentist gave him opportunities to observe patient care and work at his office during summer breaks. From then on, his career path was set in his mind. He ended up specializing in pediatric dentistry because he enjoyed working with children and helping those who were scared of the dentist overcome their fears so they could get the care they need while feeling completely comfortable.
Dr. Lee attended the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, then he completed a one-year residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry. While working with Pediatric dentists in the U.S. Army treating children, he rekindled his interest and passion for working with children. This is when he decided to focus on pediatric dentistry, so he obtained his specialty certification at the Texas A&M Health Science Center Baylor College of Dentistry. A board- certified pediatric dentist and member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, he continues to take additional education every year in order to become an even better clinician.
Dr. Lee is passionate about providing the best comprehensive dental treatment for every patient every day. “Each day, my goal is to provide the best and thorough dental care that I can to each patient,” says Lee. A former dental officer and Lieutenant Colonel in the US Army, Dr. Lee has a strong sense of duty when it comes to serving others and carries out this duty by working with each patient and each family to understand their story and their specific needs in order to offer the most effective and comprehensive treatment. According to Dr. Lee, “Many patients arrive apprehensive and nervous. I greet every patient with a smile and strive to make individual connections with each of them and their families to put them more at ease.” Dr. Lee keeps his focus on the patient’s needs allowing him to perform individualized treatments with compassion and care.
Dr. Lee and his wife, Julie, are raising two wonderful sons, Christian and Ian, and a cute Bichon-Poodle, Bella. When out of the office, he enjoys traveling, taking photographs of beautiful scenery, and spending quality time with family and friends. When time allows, he loves a round of golf.
