Super friendly and personable staff. They do very detailed work, I've had a great cleaning with them and a chipped tooth fixed. Can't tell the difference between the real part of my tooth and the fake part - looks great!

I've been seeing Dr. Lee now for five years. He's a wonderful dentist!! I was highly recommended Dr. Lee from a good friend who has been going to see him for many years. I had been searching for an experienced periodontistfor my dad and I am so glad my friend made that introduction! No words can express how grateful we are for what Dr. Lee has done to transform my dad's life. Prior to meeting Dr. Lee, my dear father had a couple of partial bridges that were coming off due to bone loss which made it very hard to eat and to speak properly. He was always self-conscious about his teeth and I could see how it was affecting him. But after meeting Dr. Lee through the course of 12 months, he gave my dad a full mouth rehabilitation. If you don't know what that is, he pretty much replaced almost all my dad's teeth with a combination of implants and crowns! It's quite unbelievable to see the transformation in my dad. To this day, he cannot stop bragging about how he has real teeth. Thank you so much, Dr. Lee! If you are looking for a skilled specialist who is also very comforting and sympathetic to your needs, go see Dr. Lee. He has a very calming demeanor and really cares about his patients (always checking on my dad!) To top it off, my dad and I were always greeted by such a friendly staff! It's so nice to visit a dental office with positive vibes where everyone is so helpful!

I really wanted to like this office. The support staff and both dentists are personable and pleasant to deal with. But after seeing another dentist nearby (with similar credentials) there is just no way to justify the much higher costs here as others have mentioned.

Very nice dentist, office and staff. However the fact that I was not initially given novocaine to put in a crown on a very sensitive tooth was absurd. Then after enduring too much pain I was given novocaine. I have goback because the crown is a little high and the area is throbbing. Not going to him though. That situation left me really uncomforable with using him again. It was toture.

Wonderful. You may not always meet with Dr. Lee, but thats fine because all of the staff here are EXCELLENT. Ask all the questions you want. They are all super knowledgable, patient and friendly. They aren't trying to shover a bunchof expensive crowns in your mouth or do other expensive things to your mouth just because. Everyone has been very sensitive to my concerns about cost.

Great experience. I was seen right away. The office is very clean. They have Pandora radio on in the background. The dental chair also had a built in back massage. Started off with x-rays which was quick. Kinsey, who cleaned myteeth was great. Dr. Lee was personable. He did his exam and went over my x-rays with me. Afterwards, I got a kit of Crest and Oral B products (toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and mouthwash). Thanks! Highly recommend.

I thought it was super helpful that Dr. Lee explained what he saw in the xrays. As opposed to saying you need X, Y, and Z done. I really appreciate that. Everyone in the office is super helpful. The office isclean. More importantly I was seen promptly but not rushed through.

Dr. Lee is my favorite dentist I've ever seen. I never have trouble getting appointments, I've never had to wait more than 5 minutes to see him, they play pandora in the office!, and his bedside manner is wonderful. He doesn'tlecture me like a child re: flossing and never tries to sell procedures I don't need. If I don't HAVE to have something done, he doesn't try to make me. I really trust his medical opinions. Also, in case of any gum needs, it's so nice to have a dentist & periodontist in one! Love Dr. Lee and highly recommend.
