Dr Stephen Lee
Principal Dentist & Co-Founder
Having graduated from The University of Queensland, Dr Lee began his dental career in private practice. Not long after, he opened his own dental practice in Noosa, where he worked for a few years, before relocating to Melbourne. In 2011, Dr Lee joined the team at Craigieburn Dental Gallery, which has a great environment and patient focus. Dr Lee became the Principal Dentist of our clinic in 2012.
Dr Lee enjoys all areas of dentistry including general restorative (fillings), crown and bridge, dentures, impacted surgical wisdom teeth removal, dentures, orthodontics, sleep dentistry, endodontics (root fillings) and even implants.
His philosophy, when it comes to dentistry, is to try and provide the best care possible in view of a good long term result. Dr Lee believes that good home care, coupled with regular dental checkups, can lead to lifetime dental health. Dr Lee understands that many patients have a fear of dentists and the treatment we provide, so he always tried to take extra care, to be as gentle as he can be, in order to allow his patients to have a more relaxing and pleasant experience.
“I hope that, one by one, the negative perceptions of dentists will turn into positive ones.”
