Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?

Born in Seoul, South Korea, Dr. Lee has always liked working with people and learning about different cultures firsthand. A big reason he came to the U.S. was to immerse himself in the diverse population. He realized that dentistry would allow him to have close, one-on-one relationships with his patients while also stimulating his interests in art and science, so when it came time to choose a career, it seemed like the perfect fit.

Where Did You Study Dentistry?

Dr. Lee’s favorite thing to do outside of the dental office is spend time with his wife and their three children, who he says have helped transform him into an even more nurturing and patient person. He also enjoys biking, snowboarding, playing golf, and stand-up paddleboarding. He’s a big fan of singing karaoke as well, so be sure to ask him what his go-to song is!
