David Lee, D.D.S.

Dr. Lee is a native of Korea. He moved to Maryland in 1974 and completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Maryland in Baltimore. Dr. Lee received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1996 from the University of Maryland at Baltimore.

He has devoted his professional career to all aspects of dentistry with special interests in Dentistry for Diabetics, Neuromuscular Dentistry and Sedation Dentistry, as well as dental implants and cosmetic procedures, including porcelain veneers and crowns. Dr. Lee practices in Silver Spring and Columbia, Maryland.

Through his extensive training, Dr. Lee understands that patients feel most at ease when they know their dental needs are being met. Because each patient is an individual with special requirements, these requirements can only be recognized, evaluated and treated through excellent communication.

Dr. Lee and his entire staff recognize that the patient’s needs always come first; therefore establishing the lines of communication is paramount. That is why before any work is performed, you’ll sit down together and talk about your teeth, your smile, your concerns and finally what you’d like to accomplish in your dental care. Then, after a thorough examination, Dr. Lee will formulate a customized treatment program to meet your specific dental needs.

Over the past decade, Dr. Lee has established himself at the forefront of dental care by providing patients with the latest dental innovations, including the use of Osseointegrated dental implants.  As a General Dentist, he is always looking for new ideas and technology to bring you the most rigorous implant and cosmetic procedures. Given his experience, he is quite familiar with the diagnosis and treatment of complex full mouth rehabilitations, using crowns, bridgework, dental implants and aesthetic restorative dentistry.

As part of his commitment to give his patients the most advanced dental care possible, Dr. Lee continues to actively participate in advanced training courses in various aspects of dentistry and annually exceeds the continuing education requirements of Maryland.

    Office Manager

    Ruth has been with the practice since January 1998, and as the office manager totally loves the interaction she has with both staff and patients! Having been a dental anxiety patient in the past, it makes it easy to understand that fear that some patients have about dentistry. Giving patients a positive dental experience and hearing their feedback about how Dr. Lee helped them get over their dental fears is so motivating.

    “I absolutely love what I do because I have a great team to work with! Dr. Lee cares about each and every patient, giving them his personal attention, educating them about their oral health and giving them their smile back. It makes each day exciting to see how our team changes lives!”

    Oliva joined our practice in October 2022 bringing her knowledge and excitement to the practice! Olivia is a graduate of University of Maryland, Baltimore County with her bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene. She has been a Registered Dental Hygienist and is patient-focused, driven to provide a personal experience for every patient, along with the highest quality care possible.

    “I am excited to have a career that I love and grateful to be working with such an amazing team!”


    Dental Assistan

    Kenya has been a dental assistant since 2018 and studied at Hands On where she attained her EFDA license. Her remarkable talent and knowledge for dental assisting is beyond compare. She works to make sure that every patient receives the highest level of patient care through her ability to be prepared for each patient’s visit. Outside of work Kenya loves participating in volunteer work and enjoys spontaneous activities with friends and family.

    “I enjoy the level of patient care we provide to each and every patient at our office and the teamwork that exists with my co-workers.”


    New Patient and Scheduling Coordinator

    Lacey fills a vital role as our New Patient and Scheduling Coordinator. Her enthusiasm, positive, can-do attitude and care that she shows to each patient is phenomenal. She joined our practice in 2021 with only a very minimum amount of experience working in the dental field. Watching her grow and learn, and to see the excitement she has for patients makes everyone smile! Lacey’s favorite thing to do in her spare time is SHOP!

    “The opportunities that Dr. Lee and Ruth have given me makes me proud to be an important component of this office.”
