Samuel Lee, DMD
Dr. Samuel Lee was raised in neighboring Arcadia, and began shadowing and volunteering in a local dental office as early as the tenth grade. After graduating from Arcadia High School, Dr. Lee went on to obtain a BS in Biochemistry at UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles), and obtained his dental degree (DMD) from Western University of Health Sciences with highest honors (Rank 1). Dr. Lee considers himself very blessed to have the opportunity to be involved in the meaningful labor of improving quality of life through preventive and restorative dentistry, as well as connecting personally with the community that he grew up in.
Dr. Lee enjoys working with patients of all ages. He previously served as the Student Coordinator for the development of two local School-Based Oral Health Centers, which screened and provided preventative/restorative dental services to underserved local child populations. He also enjoys volunteering at meaningful events all around Los Angeles and the greater San Gabriel Valley, such as Give Kids a Smile (GKAS) and Healthy Athletes (Special Olympics). He was a national recipient of the ADEA/Johnson & Johnson Healthcare Preventive Dentistry Scholarship Award, among other notable honors/awards. Dr. Lee has also obtained advanced training and a certificate in Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the UCLA School of Dentistry.
Outside the office, Dr. Lee currently serves as a Clinical Assistant Professor at Western University of Health Sciences. On his free time, he enjoys drawing and painting, playing basketball, cooking and experimenting new recipes on those brave enough to try, and of course spending quality time with friends and loved ones.
