I was one of those people that feared the dentist, until I went to Dr. Lee's office. Dr. Lee, along with his office staff is all very friendly, polite, and professional. They are ...

Editorial review from Citysearch 3/27/2014

I took a friend to Dr. Lee after another dentist told her she needed extensive & expensive work. She was suspicious because she'd gone after getting a free coupon in the mail. Dr. Lee told her she needed no work whatsoever and charged her nothing for giving the second opinion. I've been going to him for 30 years and know he is the most honest dentist in town.\r more

I found him to be a man of virtue and compassion. Furthermore, I really enjoyed talking to him and learning more about him. I consider him to be a friend and I will always feel that way.\r more

Editorial review from Citysearch 3/12/2014

I sat down in the chair while he did his thing. Without going in to the real numbers I would have to say that this man is truly a professional who did not become a doctor to help himself; he did it to help others. The prices were so reasonable that I had to stand up and hug him. He saved me (and my wallet).\r more

""Not one but quite a few people suggested me to go to Dr.lee. After my visit today, I can say this is my new go to dentist. I have no insurance but dr.lee is so affordable!!! \r I got a root canal today and didn't feel a thing!! He numbed me so well that the procedure was a breeze and I honestly can't wait for my next procedure. I feel better already.. Not to mention, I have a low pain tolerance so he has wowed me. He is honest and likes to make his patients laugh. Dr.lee, you're amazing!""\r more

After I responded to a coupon for a free exam that came in the mail from a dental group near me, I was told I needed a lot of expensive work. A friend suggested I go to Dr. Lee for a second opinion, because she told me he was the most honest dentist in town. He informed me that I needed no dental work at all and to beware of such offers in the future. I found his office charming, with bonsai and potted plants, a mixture of Chinese and country decor. (Apparently both cultures like pictures of funny-looking dogs.) Dr. Lee takes a personal interest in each of his patients and gives them all the time they need. This may not be the luxurious factory that I'm used to, but I saved a fortune thanks to Dr Lee's advice & sterling ethics (I was also so very edified to overhear he does pro bono work). This was some months ago (I wanted to write a review sooner since I've been so inspired by Dr Lee & his staff but had to undergo surgery -- different body part lol) and my teeth/mouth have been fine.\r more

Editorial review from Citysearch 2/14/2014

I love Dr. Lee. I have been using him for over 12 years. I can't believe the other reviews. Yes, he does talk some during the procedure, but I always thought it was to make me feel comfortable. The first time I saw him, I gave him my insurance and he NEVER billed it. Now, I just pay cash and every time the price is lower for the same procedure. I think if you accept his funny ways, you get a lowball price. He's Great! I would not go to any other dentist. If you take a look at his appt book, you will see htat he must be doing something right. I think he's seeing over 60 patients per day and he seems to personally know all of them. what other one man dental office is that busy? His personality is his stock and trade. The people keep coming because he makes them feel comfortable and like the dentist’s office is not that serious. He didn’t bill my insurance because he didn’t need to.\r more

Editorial review from Citysearch 10/11/2013

Dr. Lee is the best! He really makes his clients comfortable. He has a good sense of humor and his dental skills are outstanding. He did the front of my mouth with crowns and I have been getting compliments ever since 2004. Everyone should go see Dr. Lee- keep up the good work! I also refer others all the time!\r more

Editorial review from Citysearch 10/4/2013

Dr. Lee has been my dentist for over 20 years. During that time, he has cared for my teeth so well that there has never been a need for any replacements. He has always put the care of his patients first and even comes into the office on off days to accommodate his patients' schedules. Dr. Lee is punctual and patient and extremely fair and liberal to those who done have insurance. I consider Dr. Lee a friend and my dentist and feel blessed and confident in him for all of my dental needs.\r more

I am tired of unnecessary and shoddy work. I believe Dr. Lee is honest and has integrity to do good work at reasonable prices and is not apt to order unneeded procedures.\r more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/27/2013

For the first time in my life, I am not afraid to come to the dentist. Dr. Lee makes me feel like he is careful not to hurt me and he tries to make me laugh. His work is good and it lasts.\r more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/1/2013

Dr. Lee is one of the best dentists I have been to, he is a bit talkative, but he is friendly, honest, and does a very good job. If you are in pain or having problems he sees you immediately and his rates are very reasonable. I'll keep coming back as long as he keeps practicing.\r more

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/21/2013

All in all, I would recommend Dr. Lee and remind those who are reading these posts that a day at the dentist is usually never fun, after all who likes to go to the dentist! but that you should always be your own judge. I had a completely different experience while I was there, so I in fact, even made another appointment.\r more

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/18/2013

I researched him and since he's on the Board of Dentistry and is accepted by insurance, he seemed legit to me, and he was! Although of course his place wasn't as ""fancy"" or ""stylish"" as most offices now-a-days, I think patients get confused between getting the job done and feeling like the dentist should be a day at the Spa.\r more
