dr-leeScott Lee, DDS

When you schedule an appointment with Dr. Scott Lee, you will feel like you are the only patient he is seeing all day. Dr. Lee takes the time to listen, thoroughly answer any questions you may have, and will explain the procedure before he even begins. If there is something you are unsure about or have a question during the procedure, he gladly stops working to address your concern. A current patient share, “Dr. Lee couldn’t have been nicer and just easy to talk to. There was zero pressure to have any further dental work done. He only made recommendations and detailed explanations of what we saw on the X-rays.”

Dr. Lee’s attitude is that you should never stop learning, and that is why he averages 40 hours of continuing education every year. He took part in post-graduate training with a well-know dental implant and sedation dentist, Dr. Chris Harris, and is a contributing member of the Frank Spear Study Club.

Continuing education includes:

  • CAMLOG dental implant training course
  • Invisalign® certification
  • Coursework on progressive orthodontics
  • Member of Frank Spear Esthetic Study Club
  • Dick Barnes Group for esthetic contouring

Dr. Lee is a native Arizonian, born in Pinetop and raised in Mesa. He is one of nine children and graduated from Westwood High School. After graduation he entered the Marine Corps boot camp and was trained as a petroleum supply specialist for the local reserve unit. He then served a mission in Hawaii. Upon return from his mission he worked as an EFY counselor, where he met his beautiful wife, Melanie, who was also a counselor.

Together they lived in Utah, where he graduated from Weber State University in the field of microbiology. In 2002, he was activated as an infantry reserve for Operation Enduring Freedom, where he spent a year on an anti-terrorist task force. After that assignment, he was activated again for Operation Iraqi Freedom, where he was part of the initial push into Iraq. In April 2003, he was wounded in Baghdad and later received a Purple Heart.

Dr. Scott Lee is now a dentist here in the Valley and is the proud father of three wonderful children.
