Dr. Katherine Lee graduated from The University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine in 2003. While in dental school, she became so passionate about patient education and motivation concerning oral health that she also enrolled in the public health program and earned a Master of Public Health degree. Before that, she grew up in Dunwoody, GA and graduated from Dunwoody High School. She then also went on to UGA to receive a degree in microbiology.
Dr. Lee went on to complete her general practice residency at the Veterans Affair Hospital in Brooklyn, NY, which is renowned for its particularly excellent residency program. After working as an associate dentist in other offices for a few years, she and her husband Dr. Brian Lee decided to move back to his home state of Georgia and open up their own dental practice in early 2007.
She just loves how dentistry enables her to improve a person’s health, appearance, and confidence all at the same time, and this is why she spends much of her time off attending various continuing education courses across the country, mostly for laser-assisted dentistry and cosmetic dentistry.
Dr. Lee has two sons, Brandon and Jayden, who hope to become an engineer and dentist respectively. Her only wish is that they end up loving their jobs as much as she loves hers. Brandon plays violin and Jayden plays cello while Dr. Lee plays piano which makes great piano trio among three of them.
