Dr. Austin Lee is a passionate and committed general dentist with advanced education in general dentistry. He graduated from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, receiving his Doctorate of Dental Medicine, and went on to Boston University School of Dental Medicine to complete his Certification in Advanced Education in General Dentistry. Dr. Lee truly loves what he does, and it shows.
He went into the field of general dentistry because one day a dentist changed his life and his outlook on dentistry. He says “For the longest time, I never liked going to a dentist, as many don't. It was scary, painful, annoying, and mostly just uncomfortable. However, it all changed when I was 18. I was surfing in Gloucester and broke my front tooth in half. I was in pain, looked terrible, and it was on a Sunday. That day, I found a dentist who changed my perception towards dentists and the experience inspired me to become one. He got me out of pain, helped me eat properly, and smile again--without pain but with science, art, and comfort. I loved it and wanted that type of experience for everyone else who needs a dentist.”
Dr. Lee prides himself on the quality and care he provides. Along with daily routine and preventive care, he performs complex and cosmetic dentistry, including veneers, crowns/bridges, and full-mouth rehabilitations. He treats simple oral surgery cases and performs root canal therapy treatments. Patients can immediately feel his empathy and kindness, as he goes above and beyond to form a lasting and trusting relationship from the very first appointment. Dr. Lee is also available after treatment, when others may not be, to answer questions or listen to concerns and address or ease anxiety and fears. That extra effort and caring demeanor is what patients appreciate about Dr. Lee.
He has lived in Massachusetts for the last 20 years and previously held a faculty position at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Lee is a current teacher at Boston University School of Dental Medicine and stays abreast of the latest technological advancements within the dental field. He is also an active member of the Spear Institute and Cerec doctors and continues his education, advancing his knowledge and skill to offer comprehensive, state-of-the-art care to his patients.
When Dr. Lee is not interacting with patients and working to change the perception about dental care, he’s enjoying the outdoors and hiking, fishing, or skiing. After spending so much time in Boston, it’s no surprise that his favorite professional teams are the Patriots and the Bruins. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Lee, today!
