Dr Ben Lee started his dental career as a general dentist in a high-end general dental practice in Sydney after graduating from the University of Otago (New Zealand) in 2002. During this time he developed an interest for cosmetic and implant dentistry and attended numerous dental courses in Australia and USA. Being a perfectionist with a keen eye for detail, despite his best efforts he was never satisfied with the results. He has visited many dental specialists in Sydney and abroad and noticed a significant difference between the level of their work as specialists and his work at the time as a general dentist. With the goal of providing his patients with the best possible outcomes, Dr Lee dedicated 3 more years on a full-time basis to advance his expertise and obtained a specialist degree at the University of Sydney.

This specialist qualification Dr Lee is currently registered as is called a prosthodontist. It is the highest qualification that one can obtain for cosmetic and implant dentistry. As a registered specialist, Dr Lee has focused all of his training and clinical time doing one particular aspect of dentistry and doing it well. By combining passion, expertise and experience, Dr Lee is able to achieve the highest treatment success rate for his patients with minimal complications and failures which is the most important aspect for any patient seeking high quality dental treatment.

As a result of his dedication, in 2007 Dr Lee was given the prestigious Young Prosthodontist Award by the International College of Prosthodontists for his research. The area of this research is on teeth clenching and grinding during sleep, otherwise known as sleep bruxism. Patients with this problem can greatly benefit from a discussion with Dr Lee on this issue.

Dr Lee is heavily involved in continuing education, largely due to the influence of his parents (who both were university lecturers) and his excellent tutors while in dental school. Since 2009, Dr Lee has been a visiting honorary clinical lecturer at the University of Sydney teaching final year dental students in prosthodontics. Every year, Dr Lee provides many presentations and workshops to dentists on a wide range of prosthodontics topics. Through his teaching experience, Dr Lee has become very good at explaining complicated procedures and breaking them down into easy to understand concepts. Many of our patients find Dr Lee is very easy to understand even for the most complicated cases.

In 2011, Dr Lee started his own referral-based specialist private practice in Chatswood, Sydney doing what he enjoys most and what he is good at which is cosmetic and implant dentistry. He spends most of his clinical time carrying out dental implant procedures and lectures nationwide to other dentists on this topic. Dr Lee is a well-respected specialist in the dental community who is most passionate about what he does and more importantly, he cares about his patient. The genuine care he has for his patients is highly regarded by his peers and referring dentists.

Dr Lee has a keen involvement in the dental community. He is currently the president of Australian Prosthodontic Society NSW Branch and is the past-president of Australian Asian Association of Dentists. Dr Lee enjoys the challenges each organisation presents and the responsibility of serving their members.

Dr Lee’s life-long professional goal is to provide the public with his non-biased dental knowledge and to improve as many lives as possible through optimal dental care tailored to individual needs, hence our practice motto “Improving lives, one smile at a time”.
