Dr. Myong Mike Lee

DDS, Endodontist

Dr. Lee completed his undergraduate education at Brigham Young University. He then attended Loma Linda University Dental School in Southern California and graduated in 2001. Dr. Lee spent several years practicing general dentistry, but focused on endodontic treatments. During his time as a general dentist, he performed over 4,000 non-surgical root canal treatments and completed over 300 dental implants. After his 8 years in general dentistry practice, in July of 2013, he pursued an endodontics residency at Puerto Rico’s New York University Lutheran Medical Center. Dr. Lee provides specialized care for patients when their restorative dental needs requires treatment of the soft issue or “pulp” of the tooth. Most of the time, Dr. Lee provides endodontic therapy (more commonly known as root canals) to our patients. In the rare event that the root canal does not produce the desired outcome, Dr. Lee is skilled with providing an advanced endodontic microsurgery called an apicoectomy, or a “root end surgery.” In addition to Dr. Lee’s broad dental experience, he also speaks Spanish, Korean, and English to better serve our patients. We are proud of the extensive experience and passion that Dr.Lee brings to his specialty and we are happy that he’s part of our team.
