Meet Dr. Lee

Board Certified Periodontist, Diplomat Implant(ICOI)

Dr. Lee earned his DDS. in 1992 at Yonsei University, South Korea, one of top 50 dental schools in the world. However, he was not satisfied with one degree, so he decided to study and earned his MSD and PhD with a Certification in Prosthodontics. Following a successful 10-year private practice in South Korea, Dr. Lee came to US in pursuit of his dream to research “Implant and Bone regeneration”.  He has published over 30 journal articles and 5 book chapters on Implant Dentistry. Dr. Lee earned his Post-graduate Periodontal Degree at Georgia Regents University. He is board certified by the American Board of Periodontology and obtained his Implant Fellowship and Diplomat from International Congress of Oral Implantologists. He is an expert in all facets of implant, bone graft, and plastic gum surgery. Dr. Lee enjoys spending time with his wife and three beautiful children. They like Texas and love the Cowboys! Dr. Lee is looking forward to serving the residents of DFW and beyond.
