Throughout his career, Dr. Lee has had a strong commitment to giving back through volunteer work locally and internationally.

He lived on a boat for 10 days in a hammock, 15 hours down the Amazon River, providing oral surgery in a hut to the local villagers. That trip eventually ignited a fire, and he has since traveled to multiple countries, including Vietnam, Nicaragua, and the Philippines, to provide his expertise in performing critical surgeries. Since 2007, Dr. Lee has been traveling to the Philippines with the local Medical Society to provide procedures such as cleft lip and palate surgery, head and neck tumor surgery, and thyroid surgery, and has completed hundreds of these surgeries during these trips.

His commitment also extends to the local community, as he has provided many pro bono facial reconstructive surgeries through his affiliation with the local trauma center. Dr. Lee’s dedication to serving those in need is a core value that he brings to his work as a surgeon and a leader in the field.


With Dr. Lee’s unique training in the field of oral and maxillofacial surgery and microvascular surgery, he has established a successful practice that has encompassed all facets of the specialty. Dr. Lee has represented the profession as one of the first single-degree OMFS to perform head and neck and microvascular surgery in several major hospitals in the USA. He has demonstrated his expertise in a wide range of surgical procedures, from oral cancer, orthognathic, TMJ, dentoalveolar, trauma, and implant surgery. Currently, he is dedicated to utilizing his skills in dental implant full arch reconstruction, oral surgery, and facial trauma surgery, and he is excited to culminate this surgical expertise to serve patients Now.

Personal Interests

Dr. Lee is happily married with two wonderful children. He has had a passion for adventure since childhood and has surfed/foiled, rock climbed, ski mountaineered in remote destinations all over the world. He now loves bringing that sense of exploration to his family, and when he’s not in the operating room, you will find him with his family rock climbing and skiing out West or in Canada, hiking mountains, or surfing Jacksonville beach with his kids.
