Dr. Terry Lee, DDSGeneral Dentist focused on Pediatric dentistry
Born and raised in New Orleans, Dr. Lee quickly gained a passion for dentistry by cleaning and whitening his own teeth with take-home kits as a teenager. Dr. Lee found his inspiration to become a sedation dentist after his wisdom teeth were removed during his college years at Texas A&M University. Dr. Lee graduated from Columbia University in New York City and came to Houston to pursue family and sedation dentistry. His passion is to reduce the anxiety of the dental visit and to do whatever he can to make it the most professional and fun experience possible.
Dr. Lee has performed over 30,000 conscious sedations, over 40,000 oral and IV/General anesthesia sedations and can safely finish most cases with white fillings and white crowns. He has also taken over 100 hours of orthodontic CE and is Invisalign certified. Patients quickly see that Dr. Lee has a big heart for kids and families. He has followed this passion to Jamaica, South Sudan, Uganda, and Rwanda, serving the disadvantaged on Christian dental mission trips. Dr. Lee lives in the Heights area of Houston and loves its old Southern charm that reminds him much of his hometown of New Orleans. He spends his spare time as a "foodie", training for triathlons and half marathons, spending time with family and friends, and serving in his church.
