Dr. Lee is very patient and concerned about his clients. He talks to the patient while he works and that helps to keep our mind off pain. That is very good. I send everyone to him that is afraid of the dentist. I will not change dentists and I will continue to refer people to him.

Dr. Lee works hard to keep his customers happy and served promptly. He always takes time to discuss dental options that will meet the patients needs.

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.

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.

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).

"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!!!
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!"

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.

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 dentists office is not that serious. He didnt bill my insurance because he didnt need to.

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!

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.

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.

Dr. Lee, in my opinion, you are the very best!!! You are the consumate professional. Your dental work is the highest caliber, not to mention being competitively priced. Truly appreciate the overall atmosphere and superior customer service received at each visit. Thanks!

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.

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.

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.

Dr. Lee was very helpful. I was able to go to his office without an appointment and he was able to take me. When I went in for an appointment he was able to see me quickly and was able to fix my problem that day. I would definitely go to him again.

Dr. Lee is a great dentist and also a great second opinion. Friends of mine who have been suspicious of their dentists because they've been told that they need some $1,000+ treatment came to Dr. Lee and their wallets were thankful for his second opinion. I've sat in the waiting room while he was filling cavities for a small child (probably 6 or 7 years old), and he was really great with her. Making a kid laugh during the most traumatic experience is a pretty good thing. I believe one of his specialties is also dentures. Tell your grandma!

Dr. Lee is conscientious, humane and doesn't care if you complain if he's slow. I've had a lot of dental work done with him and never an infection after the crown or bridge was put in. Like most people, I love his folksy personality. unique sense of humor, and the fact that he takes the hippocratic oath seriously. He will take the uninsured, and charges only what they can afford, so he doesn't glitz up his office. I

I don't have dental insurance and the lowest rate quoted to me was $4,200.00. Not being one to sit in agony, I decided the only viable option was to remove the tooth. That is when a friend mentioned Dr. Lee. I called him and said I heard that he was somewhat reasonably priced. Without hesitation he replied "No. I am unreasonably reasonable." This put me at ease instantly. I thought it was a comment made in jest, but I figured I would try him out. 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.

"Dr. Lee has one trait that I value above all others in my healthcare professionals. HE IS HONEST!
I had no insurance at the time and when I asked him if this had to be dealt with and should be given emergency status, he said no. When I asked if anything could be worked out he said yes. When I asked if I should pay the $400 to an oral surgeon or if I should just take the antibiotic and see if the tooth would fall out on it's own he said ""could happen, let's see if that works."" I took the antibiotic, the pain stopped and yes the tiny chip of tooth fell out on it's own. No smoke and mirrors, no song and dance and no BS. He answered my questions honestly and with no malice or attempt to get more money out of me. The doctor before him set me up for a $400 surgery, an extraction that damaged the tooth next to it, an emergency fee for seeing me, and all out of my pocket. Dr. Lee looked at my tooth and advised me for free, he gave me a prescription for my infection for free and when he found out I'd be paying for the cap myself on another tooth he knocked some money off and allowed me to leave there having only paid $100 deposit for the future procedure."
