Meet Dr. James Lee

Meet James Lee, DMD

Dr. James Lee is an educated and enthusiastic General Dentist with a strong focus on dental restoration. He received his B.S. in Chemistry at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He then graduated magna cum laude from Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine where he received his Doctorate of Dental Medicine. He went on to complete his General Practice Residency at Montefiore Hospital’s Department of Dentistry in The Bronx, NY. Dr. Lee continues to learn the most modern techniques and procedures, saying “I love learning about innovative and more efficient procedures and techniques. I want to provide the best and most comprehensive care to my patients.”

Dr. Lee loves what he does, and it shows. “As much as I enjoy being able to take care of patient’s dental needs, like managing pain and restoring teeth, the part I enjoy the most is being able to be, in a way, an artist.

I thoroughly enjoy the fact that I get to create beautiful restorations that naturally blend into a patient’s own teeth” he says. Dr. Lee knew early on that he loved dentistry. He decided in seventh grade that he wanted to become a dentist. Upon entering his general practice residency, he quickly realized that this was more than just a career, this was his passion. “I love restoring decayed and fractured teeth back to their original function and esthetics. I love being able to change people’s lives for the better. I would not trade being a dentist for any other profession.” says Dr. Lee.

Originally from South Korea, Dr. Lee currently resides in Saugus, Massachusetts. He attended Gordon Cornwell Seminary and is an active church member in Saugus. He is a Spear Education member and proudly dedicates much of his spare time to continuing education and the pursuit of clinical excellence in dentistry. He also enjoys being active outdoors and snowboarding in the New England winters.

"I love working at Newburyport and the staff here, so it’s been a great experience so far."
