Biography

I was born and raised in Thornhill, ON, Canada, which is just outside of Toronto. I attended Queen’s University, where I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Life Sciences. I then earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from New York University, where I was ranked #1 in my class of over 350 students. Upon graduation, I was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society, and received the William S. Kramer Award of Excellence for demonstrating the most scholarship, character, and potential promise to the field of dentistry. I knew early on (from the time I was a brace-faced teenager) that I wanted to become an orthodontist. The transformation from never wanting to smile to always wanting to smile was a life-changing experience that I wished to share with as many people as possible. After dental school, I was accepted into Columbia University, where I completed a three-year residency program in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. I served as the chief resident of my program and received a Master of Science degree for my research on the cellular mechanisms that occur during orthodontic tooth movement and fixed retention. For the last three years, I have been practicing in downtown Seattle and Bellevue, WA, and have made it my mission to help patients of all ages achieve beautiful, healthy smiles that they can take pride in for the rest of their lives. I am an Invisalign® Preferred Provider and also specialize in braces, accelerated orthodontics, temporary anchorage devices (TADs), early childhood treatment, restorative planning, and treatment in conjunction with orthognathic jaw surgery. I am a member of the American Association of Orthodontics, Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists, Washington State Society of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, Washington State Dental Association, and Seattle-King County Dental Society. One of my main passions outside of orthodontics is music. I enjoy playing the piano and used to perform in musical theater productions and at events, but now I mainly sing in the shower and in my car.

    I selfishly don't want to leave a review and have the practice as a best-kept secret, but I won't do that. Extremely clean, modern facility and the entire staff is incredibly personable. Very thorough with their procedures. Glad to be a patient.

    Dr. Daniel - The best Dentist experience I've ever had. I was greeting by a cute little four legged pup and ended the appointment with a goodie bag filled with everything I need! Both doctors were so friendly and very knowledgeable. No pressure type of business. The office was also super modern, clean, and cute! Highly recommend going here. Tell all your friends and family. Best part was probably the Netfix on the ceiling to watch while you're getting you teeth shiny and clean. Already booked my best appointment.

    First dentist visit in at least 4 years if not more. Going into this visit I was slightly nervous, that said the staff was fantastic and my nerves quickly went away. They made sure I was comfortable every step of my visit today.

    I saw Daniel because Christina was out on maternity leave. He was FANTASTIC. Every single person I encountered was, actually. I have a serious fear of the dentist and had not been in the better part of a decade. They were kind and informative, but never shamed me. Can't imagine going anywhere else.

    I had one of the best dental visit ever with Dr. Daniel Lee. The office was beautiful and they even had an office dog, Muggsy, who was just the cutest ever. Dr. Lee and my dental tech we’re both fantastic and made me feel comfortable. Would highly recommend.

    Dr. Christina Lee was not there today but I got to see Dr. Daniel Lee, who was so lovely and helpful. The hygienist was great too, and we got along really well and had fun conversations. The best part was that I didn't feel pressured to do anything or make decisions today about my teeth and potential future needs. Thuy, the secretary/scheduler, was also super kind and helpful. I would definitely recommend their practice to my friends and family! The only reason why it's a 4 and not a 5 is because it's my first time there, I don't usually rate full stars on my first visit anywhere. I can always update after my next appointment!

    After trying out 2 other dentists this year, I’ve finally found a dentist/office that “gets the big picture”. This office is very very clean, organized and they have great communication. They’re up to date and knowledgeable on what makes a visit comfortable, and They pay attention to what’s important. For example, I have an allergy to nitrile gloves. Each dentist I’ve gone to, I’ve made that very clear on the initial patient form. The previous two dentists somehow missed it and I had to stop them before they were about to put their nitrile covered hands in my mouth. What is the point of me filling out the health questionnaire if nobody bothers to read it?? Anyways, The Dr.’s here went through everything and didn’t miss a thing. Great work and no surprises! Highly recommend :)
