Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Lee was really nice, welcoming and in time. I just believe my cleaning could have been a bit longer and better. When I got home, I realized in the mirror he didn't get everything cleaned as my usual dentist does.
I always have an amazing experience with Dr. Lee. He truly cares about my dental health and care.
Was seen right away which doesn't happen too often from my experience. Usually its a 30min to an hour wait for me. The assistant took the Xrays and Dr. Lee did the cleaning without me yelling in pain. Honestly, one of my better experiences in the dental office.
Did not feel like I got a deep cleaning like I have before with other dentist, Dr. Lee was overall VERY nice and knowledgeable concerns but, the cleaning was done in 20 minutes after not having a cleaning for 8 months. Normally, this takes much longer and I had to point out more spots for him to clean where It was noticeable that there was still on my teeth. I thought it was odd there was no assistant helping him with the tools. I am new to the city, and he had great reviews but, unfortunately I wont go back.
He was very professional
Dr. Lee is great! Everyone in the office is so nice and there is never a wait.
Dr. Lee and his staff are so nice! I felt really comfortable in the hands of such a friendly and knowledgeable dentist.
Friendly service, thorough cleaning - all good.
Came in for a check up and was seen right away. Doctor Lee and his staff are very friendly and professional. Will continue to use him as my dentist.
Professional and courteous. Convenient booking times.
Dr. Lee was so kind and took care of my needs. He also fixed/cleaned a tooth that was popping out and stained and made it look like the rest of my teeth. He also answered all my questions and was in and out in no time. I will definitely be coming here again.
Such a lovely experience! Will definitely be back.
Dr. Lee is very nice. He took time to explain what happened to my teeth.
Best dentist in Brooklyn, his office manager/receptionist is very nice too!
I had barely finished filling out all my forms when I was whisked back for my exam, and 30 minutes later I was done and on my way. During the exam, Dr. Lee explained clearly everything he was doing and why - I had never had that before at the dentist, but it was very much appreciated!
Best experience I've ever had at a dentist appointment. Made me feel at ease and the staff are all so friendly. Definitely recommend!
It was a simple last-minute procedure to reattach a loose crown which went really smoothly and though it was simple, I will say that Dr. Lee has excellent bedside manner and took the time to walk me through the x-rays of another dentist's work (from the root canal necessitating the crown in the first place) and walked me through the chemistry of the replacement adhesive, which as an engineer I appreciated, and seriously who does that? Crown is now happily reattached. I was impressed enough with the session that I scheduled my long overdue appointment for x-rays and cleaning (and I suspect at least one filling) with him next week. As someone who has had my share of bad experiences with dentists, that is saying a lot
Love Doctor Lee. He's professional, courteous, and knowledgable. No unecessary procedures or treatments. His secretary is wacky as anything, but yeah. Good dental experiences overall.
Always come here! Best dental experience Ive ever had!
Very professional and sweet. I would definitely be coming back to see him again. If you are looking for a great dentist then you need to make an appt. With Dr. Lee. He is the best and you will not regret it.
For the first time ever I enjoyed my dental experience! I have always had anxiety when going to the dentist but Dr. Lee made me feel at ease instantly. He is a super cool guy, very welcoming as well as professional. He explained what he was going to do throughout the entire appointment and made me feel comfortable throughout the cleaning process. The office is super clean, well taken care of and modern. For once in my life I'm not anxious for my next appointment!
Quick and painless as always!
Dr Lee was quick and efficient. He answered my questions and explained every step of the appointment.
Shirt wait and great service. Everyone is very professional and very friendly, highly recommend
Dr Lee was great. I will would definitely recommend him. I arrived to my appointment 15 mins early and was seen right away. Dr Lee took his time to explain everything he was doing as he was doing it. His receptionist was also very friendly and helpful. I found my new dentist!
So far I have been here twice, and it's the best overall experience I've had at a dentist in New York. Never a wait, straight to the point, and (yes, other people do this) he doesn't make up problems to treat for followup visits. Highly recommend.
Dr. Lee is awesome. He thoroughly explains everything and is super patient. I have recommended him to all of my colleagues!
Dr. Lee is friendly, professional, and efficient. I was taken immediately and the front desk staff is also very pleasant. Highly recommend!
Dr Lee was very thorough and though I hadn't been to a dentist in a handful of years, the cleaning was much faster than cleanings I've had in the past. He explained everything in detail and with patience. I've finally found a dentist that I like in NYC after 15 years here, and will be back to see him in 6 months.
The appointment was quick and to the point. I had the first appointment of the day so I didn't have to wait at all. David Lee was very good about explaining my x-rays and what he was seeing while cleaning my teeth. It was my first dentist appointment in about 2 years and overall it was a great dentist experience and I'll be happy to go back.
very pleasant, definitely would recommend!
Nice guy, great dentist.
Dr. Lee was awesome! He was very kind and efficient with the appointment, and explained everything thoroughly.
Dr. Lee is by far the best dentist I have been to. I am very happy to have found his practice after such a long search for a good dentist in NYC. His office is bright and beautiful and his receptionist is lovely. Moreover, Dr. Lee is incredibly friendly, thorough, and up to date on the latest technology. He explains everything he is doing during his exams and procedures and makes sure you're comfortable. I highly recommend him.
Dr Lee is great. This is a small office and things run very smoothly.
Always A breeze with Dr. Lee been going to him for 3 years no problem and office is always clean
Dr. Lee was very attentive and thorough, noticing and treating issues that a previous dentist from a visit just 6-months prior completely overlooked. Recommended.
After just moving to Brooklyn, I was nervous about starting with a new dentist. Dr. Lee was very prompt, friendly, and informative! He always explained what he was doing and why, which always puts my mind at ease. The rest of the staff was also extremely friendly. Would recommend!
Dr. Lee was very polite and friendly. He kept me updated through the whole process exactly what he was doing and observing. Everyone on the staff was friendly and helped me eithout any wait. Highly recommended!
I am very particular about the dentist that I see. Dr. Lee was amazing. He is very honest and knowledgeable as well. I had a flawless and pain-free cleaning and will be seeing him again.
Dr. Lee was fantastic! He was extremely kind and explained what he was doing every step of the way. I will be back for sure!
It was a great visit. The entire staff is pleasant. Dr. Lee was very informative and helped me understand my options for various treatments. Best of all he didn't try to "sell" me anything.
Dr. Lee is great. Very friendly, thorough, and professional. Highly recommend!
I was so nervous about my visit but Dr. Lee was incredibly kind, gentle, and reassuring. I sat during the cleaning (which he did fantastically!) paralyzed but all the while thinking I was so happy I went to a new dentist! Highly recommended. The woman who works the desk is also the sweetest.
Dr. Lee answered every question I had and talked me through any concern. This was a great visit and I'm looking forward to returning.
They were super efficient and friendly. I didn't have to wait and the doctor was helpful.
Great work, as usual!
Been seeing him for a several years now, no problems!
He was extremely clear about what he was doing and why. Everything about the process was quick, efficient, and honest.
Dr. Lee and his staff are amazing!!! There is no long wait time before you're called in to hop in chair. Dr Lee is a master at his craft. He's not trying to do extra things like other dentists to milk the insurance company. I highly recommend Dr. Lee to anyone looking for a great dentist in Williamsburg Brooklyn.
Dentist very informative and professional. Excellent bedside manners. Assistant and front desk helpful and sweet..
Second time here and it's always a pleasure! The receptionist is so sweet and helpful! Her and Dr. Lee truly do care about your well being and if there is an issue that they'd prefer to refer to someone else for, they will give honest reviews of another specialist to help you. I went to Dr. Lee for a second opinion on a matter and he helped to reassure me that everything would be ok. I would 100% recommend Dr. Lee.
The receptionist is awesome, she's always so cheerful!
Dr Lee is very professional and friendly. Saw me right away and appointment went quickly.
He was friendly and knowledgable Front Desk is very caring and takes their time to explain everything. Highly reccomend

Highly recommended! as always.
He's great !
They were really friendly and very professional. Dr. Lee had a lot of helpful information and was extremely efficient.
Very personable and friendly. Good person. Explains thoroughly what is going on.
The receptionist was an absolute sweetheart and went over the payment that was required from my insurance and made the entire check-in process a breeze. Also, Dr. Lee was great as well! For someone who isn't too keen on visits to the dentists, his calm voice and thorough explanations of the procedure and answers to my question put me at ease. I will definitely be returning!
Very prompt and professional dentist! He was able to put my mind at ease and did a great check-up and cleaning.
Very professional, but not uptight. The office and staff were very welcoming. Dr. Lee explained everything he was doing in a great way and gave me some good recommendations. And no scolding for me not flossing 50 times a day!
-Fantastic, thorough, effective, and quick. David Lee is the best dentist I have ever seen. -Front reception is also great, and the new upgrades to the office are very nice! -Thank you!
It was first time for us (me and my son) to visit Mr. Lee but he was very nice and informative. Staff working there were also very friendly. I will def go back there.
Haven't been to the dentist in quite some time (few years to be exact) and today was the big day. I setup an appoint for a checkup as well as a cleaning. Dr. Lee and his assistant were amazing! The assistant took x-rays and then Dr. Lee saw me after. I explained to him what's going on and he listened to everything I had to say. He explained everything he was going to do. Everything was great and will definitely be coming back to see Dr. Lee for my next check-up or dental issue/emergency.
I have been twice and Dr. Lee is cheerful and chatty. The receptionist is also really friendly and quick. The building is a total dump, and the office itself is really small (I think there are only 2 rooms). But the positive nature of the dentist/receptionist makes it okay to overlook the actual space. The equipment itself seems new and clean.
Went in for only a cleaning, but he was very thorough and listened to everything I had to say, highly recommend.
I Loved Dr Lee. He was very kind and very professional. The receiption girl was so nice too, office was clean and quiet. No wait. At all!!!! And they gave me little gift bag with tooth brush,floss and tooth paste in it :) I'm definitely going back.
I had a really good experience with Dr. Lee and his staff. He was very informative and the staff pleasant. I highly recommend this dentistry.
DR. David Lee very professional and explained everything from beginning to end. He showed how much he loves working the field he works in. He did a great job and I highly recommend. Also I may add the other ladies that work there from the receptionist to the his assistants they all are very friendly and smiled the whole time. Will continue with my 6 months follow there Thank you Guys!
Really positive experience: timely, knowledgable, friendly and honest - already suggested my roommates see Dr. Lee!
Dr. Lee is super smart, and loves to answer questions. Definitely going back.
it was surprisingly very good. I have had bad luck with appointments on zoc doc before. From making the appointment to finding the office to the receptionist and finally the doctor it was all so easy and pleasant. Lovely office. Nice and clean. The receptionist was warm and lovely and the doctor as well. I will be making appointments for my children as well in the near future
There was no wait time. I went in at exactly the time I scheduled my appointment. He was very informative, answered all of my questions, and addressed the concerns I had with whitening systems. I will be back in 6 months.
Dr. Lee is awesome, he has amazing bedside manners and always walks me through everything he is doing.
Very short wait, did a great job cleaning, very personable. Great find and great dentist!
I think I'll stay with this dentist as long as I can. Great service from the whole staff!
Easy and painless visit for a cleaning. Dr. Lee was friendly and knowledgeable.
Both receptionist and doctor were friendly, relaxed, and professional. I was seen right away.
Overall great experience!
Dr. Lee is very friendly and approachable. He seems totally skilled and competent, though granted I have only seen him for cleanings. He is very attentive and wants to make sure his patients are informed and satisfied.
The entire office were so nice and helpful. Such a welcoming environment and I definitely recommend David Lee, DDS to anyone looking for a dentist!
Dr. David Lee is the best dentist in New York City. Thank you so much for a great appointment and Dental Cleaning.
Dr Lee was great. Quick, friendly, and thorough.
Excellent and knowledgeable. Will return for future visits.
The reviews are right. Dr. Lee is incredibly pleasant, extraordinarily knowledgeable and intensely passionate about his field. He makes you feel very comfortable and will take the time to explain what he sees and what needs to be done to fix it. If you're in the market for a dentist, this one is top notch.
I was very pleased with my cleaning.
Very down to earth! Am excited to have a great new dentist in the neighborhood. It's not fancy but super clean and comfortable. Would definitely recommend Dr. Lee!
Super friendly and welcoming. My appt was at 830a and the receptionist and Dr. Lee showed up about 10 minutes later. The receptionist was super lovely and apologetic about it and the doctor saw me barely a minute after he walked in. After that, the appt itself didn't feel rushed at all - he took the time to explain everything he was doing/using/what he saw in my x-rays. I usually dread going to the dentist but overall this was a very pleasant experience!
Thank you to Dr. Lee and his wonderful colleague for making my much-feared dental appointment (the first in… more years than I should publicly admit) a thoroughly pleasant experience ! My teeth are not only cleaner but perhaps whiter than they were the last time I had them done professionally (how?!) and the process was incredibly quick and totally painless. I initially feared that my total cluelessness - i.e. demonstrated dental appt. negligence, general lack of knowledge of what my insurance covers, etc - would be a huge headache for the office, but Dr. Lee and the lovely young woman who helped with the insurance matter handled everything with incredible efficiency. Thank you again!! -- much happier resident of Williamsburg, November 2014
The Doctor was very knowledgeable and friendly. He did a great job and was able to answer to all my queries. What I really like was that he was a great listener and gave some good advice and suggestions. I do highly reccomend him.
He was good at giving information on my dental situation. I've found my new dentist!
Overall, I enjoyed my experience with Dr. Lee. He's friendly and very quick. However, I did not like how my dental options were explained to me. That is, they weren't. I was told I needed a root canal after my check up. I went home, did some research and found that a root canal may not be the best option. Only after I brought this up with Dr. Lee did he mention other options are available. I want the full picture before I make such a big decision and spend a significant amount of money. I'd appreciate more transparency and fuller explanations from him in the future, if I continue to see him.
Dr and assistant were both extremely quick and friendly.
Really nice, professional and laid back. Dr Lee Makes going to the dentist a whole lot easier.
Dr Lee works from a simple office set-up and uses technology to get the job done... not make patients wait or torture teeth unnecessarily with fancy gadgets. There was no wait time between taking the x-rays and going over them together. I really like this doctor and will return.
Doc knows his stuff gave me some tips on how to make my teeth whiter without using those "brand products" that costs lots of money he's great A++ in my gradebook
My appointment was great. Friendly and professional, overall did a great cleaning. Highly recommend
My visit with Dr. Lee was excellent he answered all of my questions and he is very polite and informative
Dr. Lee is pleasant and is thorough. He explains everything while treating the patient. My experience with Dr. Lee was well satisfying. My husband was also very happy with him.
He was pleasant overall but a little bit distant and clinical. I was hoping for a bit more friendliness. That being said, I'll probably keep seeing him.
I've always had a great experience when visiting Dr. Lee. He is very friendly and concerned in making sure he is giving you the right prognosis and making sure you are comfortable with the decision made. He is friendly and patient and willing to answer any questions you may have.
Very efficient and thorough great cleaning.
Dr lee was great and informative I highly recommend.
I came in for a second opinion regarding fillings. The first dentist I went to told me I needed 13 fillings and after Dr. Lee took a quick look and an x-ray, he said I had maybe 6 fillings and 4 were on wisdom teeth so probably not even worth it to fill. He was quick, but still explained everything he was doing and was completely unassuming, relaxed, and friendly. It's a no thrills office, but really great service from my one quick visit there. I'll be back to get my two filings next week!
David was courteous and gentle. I felt relaxed throughout the whole experience. Thank You Sir.
I was the only one in the office and it seemed way too fast for a thorough cleaning.
Excellent! In and out immediately. Very nice
I was really comfortable.
Quick, professional, kind
Due to an emergency, I had my appointment delayed for about an hour. But understood things happen. The service was great, reception is very friendly. It's been years since I last went to a dentist and was a little worried that my dental cleaning was going to be painful. But Dr. Lee was approachable , which put me at ease. The cleansing was quick and we were done in less that half an hour. I'm will certainly go back for my next cleaning in 6 months
Dr. Lee was very adept at his job. He worked quickly and effectively, while having a productive conversation about healthy dental habits. His office is small, personal, very clean and well run.
Everything was great. I hadn't been to the dentist in years, but he made it painless and gave me good advice. Highly recommended!
He was great! I hadn't been to the dentist in a VERY long time and he made me feel comfortable. He is calming, pleasant, laid-back and straightforward. I would highly recommend.
Very friendly. Recommended my friend who was looking for a dentist.
He was great! Very efficient and professional.
Very friendly, down to earth, informative. Fair price and wasn't trying to up sell me on extra services I didn't need which I find often happens at dentists. Will definitely go back!
Best Dentist I've ever seen. Appointment started on time. Receptionist was very nice (not common in Brooklyn). David was very nice and did the entire appointment himself - not a dental assistant. I do many reviews and very seldom do I give 5 stars but I do not have a single complaint!
Doctor is very gentle. I was accepted right away no wait time. The procedure was done quickly, not bad. I would recommend this doctor.
He was very friendly and informative on the care and concerns I had about my teeth. The office is a good size so you won't be cramped and fill claustrophobic.
Great docter, made me feel comfortable and office was very clean my tooth extractions took 10 mins and was painless
Another great appointment and great service. Sue @ Front Reception was great when my appointment was rescheduled and I arrived 20 minutes early today and was taken in right away. Dr. David Lee does fantastic, precise, and surprisingly great work. Not an easy job for sure. Thanks again!
Loved it (double snaps)! He's super nice.
Dr. David Lee is fantastic, and is an artist. He does great work. I had a very large cavity that anyone could easily see as it was on my front canine tooth and David took care of this making it look like new. It is definitely worth the distance/drive. Thanks!
Dr. Lee was very patient and informative, and answered all of my questions in a simple and understandable manner. His front desk staff was pleasant and easy to work with, and all in all it was a wonderful experience!
Great dentist - painless and fast cleaning!
He was very nice, and very helpful!
I'm so happy that I did find a good doctor I feel so comfortable with him and he is very professional thank you
Quick and painless.
Felt at ease friendly and professional :)
Dr. Lee and his staff are great! It is a tiny office, which I thought was nice. He is professional and kind. Additionally, when there was an issue with my insurance they were kind enough to not charge me any extra fees which was extremely generous, and not anything I've commonly seen.
Dr. Lee was so kind and made me feel comfortable, in spite of my very poor dental health. He made a treatment plan and made sure I understood whay needed to be done. I'm feeling better already!
My visit with Dr. Lee was a great experience. I was in a lot of pain and Dr. Lee was very patient, kind and professional.
didn't floss me and iPhone was dining right in my ear on load multiple times. At least he didn't answer it. was very nice though. office was pretty empty.
Very professional and quick.
Very considerate. Explained it all every step of the process (cleaning, filling, X-rays).
