His journey to dentistry

Dr. Eddie Lee was born in Seoul, South Korea and immigrated to America with his family while he was in high school. His father worked in the airline industry and instilled the value of pursuing opportunities and exploring the world.

For his undergraduate degree, Dr. Lee attended the University of Illinois at Chicago. Upon graduating, the University immediately recruited him to continue as a researcher on novel anti-cancer drug therapy. Many of his findings laid the foundation for drugs used to help patients fight cancer today. 

During his tenure, he served on many medical relief mission trips, which opened his eyes to the impact dentistry has on not only your oral and overall health but your life as a whole.

He decided to retire (temporarily) from research and become a dentist.

Why he chose periodontics

During dental school at Roseman University in Utah, Dr. Lee was astounded by the high number of periodontal cases. This lead him to pursue certification in advanced periodontics and implant dentistry at the University of Washington.

With his research background, Dr. Lee completed a Masters in Science, focusing on treatment for peri-implant disease, while simultaneously completing his residency.

Dr. Lee’s breakthrough research over the years has paved ways to improve the success and treatment options for dental implants as we know it.

We’re honored to have Dr. Lee on our team and feel extremely confident putting your smile is his expert hands.
