Dr. Lee is our orthodontist who specializes in the art and science of creating a harmonious relationship between the teeth, the jaws, and the face.
Dr. Lee received his Doctor of Dental Medicine from the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry, graduating at the top 5% of his class. He then obtained his Master of Science in Dentistry as well as his Certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics from one of the nation’s most prestigious orthodontics residencies: Saint Louis University Center for Advanced Dental Education. At the first opportunity since graduation, Dr. Lee became certified by the American Board of Orthodontics, the highest distinction an orthodontist can achieve.
Dr. Lee has been trained in the treatment of children, adolescents, and adults and in the use of conventional braces, esthetic braces, and Invisalign. He has also been trained in the care for patients who need jaw surgeries as well as in the utilization of temporary anchorage devices (TAD’s) also known as miniature screw implants (MSI’s).
The credentials and the proficiencies are, of course, very important in a health care professional in whom you place your trust. But perhaps, what is even more important is that the relationship between you and your doctor is one of mutual respect. When you come see our orthodontist, you can expect to be treated in the way that you want to be treated whether you are 7-years-old or 77.
