Dr. Lee looks forward to welcoming you and your loved ones into our dental office, and you can start getting to know her by reading on below.
Dr. Lee actually began her medical career as a nurse, but eventually, she found herself drawn to dentistry. She says that’s because when you improve someone’s teeth, you can see the results right away, and patients quickly enjoy better health as well as a more confident appearance. Nothing makes her happier than the look on a patient’s face when they see their new smile in the mirror for the first time. She’s been in the profession for more than 12 years and looks forward to many more decades!
Dr. Lee attended Sahm Yook University in South Korea before making her way to the University of Texas at Dallas and the University of North Texas. After getting her bachelor’s degree, she attended the Baylor College of Dentistry to obtain her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. Since then, she has completed numerous advanced training courses focused on orthodontics (including Fastbraces and Invisalign) as well as dental implants. She also maintains active memberships in the American Dental Association as well as the Texas Dental Association to help her stay up-to-date on all the newest technology and techniques in the field.
Away from work, Dr. Lee primarily likes to spend her free time with her supportive husband and their three wonderful boys. She also enjoys photography, gardening, cooking, and playing “soccer mom” for her youngest son.
