Dr. Andrew Lee

Graduating with honors in implant dentistry, Dr. Lee furthered his education by completing a hospital-based residency rotating through the VA Palo Alto, Stanford University Medical Center, and Highland Alameda County Hospital.
He has traveled to Haiti twice on dental mission trips to care for the dental needs of the locals there. Through these experiences, Dr. Lee has had the privilege of treating people from all backgrounds and with varying dental needs including the medically complex.
Focusing on conservative management, Dr. Lee believes the most valuable impact a dentist can provide his patients is on how to prevent dental problems in the future. The goal is to maintain a healthy mouth as part of your overall health to keep you smiling, laughing, and eating comfortably.
When Dr. Andrew Lee is not thinking dentistry, he spends much of his time with his beautiful wife, daughter, and dog. He enjoys rock climbing, performance driving, traveling and trying new cuisines.
