I had such a wonderful experience for my orthodontic consultation with Dr. Lee. For me this was a “second opinion” and I am so glad I went, because Dr. Lee was incredibly thorough from start to finish. A consultation with adifferent practice left me rushed, feeling like I had no options for treatment; and my questions were brushed aside. Dr. Lee took the time to explain every detail of what my treatment would look like with each of my options, and discussed the pros and cons of all options. He took the time to answer my questions and left me feeling confident and excited to begin treatment under his care.
