Over the last 10 years, he has successfully tackled incredibly complex cases, which required a multi-disciplinary approach to care.

Dr Lee’s success and commitment to excellence led him to become one of the founding members of the Exceptional Practice Group in 2002. As a member of this group, Dr Lee works with other top Australian dentists to further innovation and excellence in dental science.

Whenever a new technology is released that can lead to safer and more effective and comfortable treatment for his patients is developed, Dr Lee makes a point to educate himself in its use. In 2003, he was a delegate at the inaugural World Congress of Clinical Laser Dentistry in Los Angeles, USA, an event that discussed the use of painless laser technology to treat a variety of dental problems.

Dr Lee’s approach to dentistry centres on patient comfort. He believes that everyone is entitled to a beautiful smile and develops unique treatment plans for every patient, so that they can achieve one.
