At Columbia Advanced Dental Studio, we provide cosmetic dental care for patients throughout the Silver Spring, MD area. Many patients do not realize that there are several ways to address even the most common aesthetic and health issues. This means there is no one-size-fits-all answer in cosmetic dental care, but rather, customized solutions for your particular needs. We are committed to delivering the highest quality dental care and do so using state-of-the art dental equipment. We are a cosmetic dentist that offers services like checkups, teeth cleaning, crowns, veneers and more.

We also perform emergency dentist services that include bonding, root canals, crowns, and bridges. As a local dentist, we create lifelong relationships with our patients and their families and work to ensure that they receive treatments in a comfortable and relaxed environment. Drs. Lee and Meltzer and our staff invite you to schedule an appointment by calling 410-635-5105 and experience why our patients think Columbia Advanced Dental Studio is the most qualified dentist in Columbia.

Meet the Doctor

David Lee, D.D.S.

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.

    “I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I “grew up”. Joining Dr. Lee in building his practice has brought me a level of satisfaction like no other job I’ve ever had. We make every effort to make every patient feel comfortable and welcome from the minute they walk through the door. We want to make going to the dentist a pleasant experience and eliminate the preconception of dentistry. Each of our patients is like a family member to us, and we want the best for each and every one of them. Watching a patient’s smile take shape into something they can be proud of, and doing it with comfort and ease, is very rewarding for me. I am very proud to be part of such an amazing team of professionals at Lee Dentistry”

    Dental Assistant

    Liz joined our practice as a dental assistant trainee in 2007 before returning to her home state of Louisiana. She was given a chance to experience being a dental assistant and fell in love with the “hands on” work in dental. Liz then worked hard and graduated from Delta College in Baton Rouge Louisiana in 2012 at the top of her class.

    “I love what I do. I like helping patients feel at ease and relaxed when they come in. I love to see the dental-phobic patient transform into someone who is comfortable coming to the dental office because of the level of care we give to our patients.”
