Dr. Richard Lee
Dr. Lee was born in Seoul, South Korea but immigrated to the United States at age 8. He achieved his Bachelor of Arts degree in Chemistry at New York University and his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at New York University College of Dentistry. He has worked in many non-dental related jobs before dental school that brought forth the pleasure working with a diverse population that is New York.
He is a very compassionate individual who truly cares not only his patients but staff as well to bring forth a family like practice. His gentle demeanor, delicate approach with concise explanation will help patients understand the rationale behind his treatment planning and even soothe anxious patients.
Dr. Lee believes dentistry is a profession that allows him to give back to the community. He has been on many outreach programs, and was selected to travel overseas to be a part of a dental outreach program to serve the underserved communities in Mexico. There, he’s found a true passion for oral surgery and implant dentistry.
Outside the office, Dr. Lee loves to sing and go karaoke. He also loves to spend time with his wife and his dog, Leo, go on spontaneous travel together, and play/watch soccer. One of his most memorable moments was watching the 2018 World Cup Final live! He is fluent in Korean and conversational in Spanish.
