Personal Letter from Dr. Wayne Lee
Hello there and thank you for visiting my website.
Allow me to tell you a little about myself. I am a general dentist who believes the best dentistry for everyone is the least amount of treatment. Most dental problems are preventable and with thorough routine visits, most patients can have their natural teeth for a lifetime.
My favorite means of achieving a beautiful and healthy smile is in the area of orthodontics and teeth whitening because these dental treatments don’t involve drilling of teeth. Only when the condition can not be improved with braces and whitening would I consider restoring them.
When a patient needs a composite filling, I will go the extra mile to keep the filling small to preserve as much of the natural teeth as possible.
I believe that it’s better to remove the wisdom teeth before the roots are completly formed, usually before 20 years of age, because they are easier to extract and the healing will be quicker. I have seen many older patients suffer from cavities and gum disease due to wisdom teeth complications. I am very comfortable with wisdom teeth removal since I have successfully extracted over a thousand wisdom teeth in my career (impacted and non-impacted).
I also love implant dentistry because this is an area where I can give my patients back what they have lost. Dental implants are the most natural way to replace missing teeth. For most cases, I place and restore implants, taking my patients through the entire process at our office.
Lastly, I have a Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CT) imaging unit in my office. Cone Beam CT imaging is a safer and faster version of the medical CT imaging and it allows me to see the mouth in 3D so that a more accurate diagnosis and treatment plan can be accomplished.
I encourage you to browse through our website to get to know our staff and team of dentists. I hope the website is informative. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment please do not hesitate to contact us!
