Welcome to Our Practice

Welcome to our clinic: the HOME of Preventive and Personalized Dental CARE in the National Capital Region!   

WE ARE PREVENTIVE!  We recognize that dental enamel is the strongest tissue in the human body and it has the capacity to remineralize.  Because of this, our Ottawa dental clinic’s treatment philosophy is rooted in treating ALL patients with a preventive care paradigm.  In other words, no matter the age of any given patient - from 1 year old to 101 years old – our Ottawa dental team pursues a comprehensive treatment program focused on preserving the healthy and natural dentition of every patient.  With our more senior patients, we recognize that many of them have had extensive dental restorative work done on their teeth; nonetheless, we apply the same preventive strategy for these patients as well in order  to preserve and maintain the natural dental (teeth), gingival (gums) and periodontal (gums and bone) tissue that they have in their mouths.   

WE ARE PERSONALIZED!  We recognize that the teeth of each patient are attached to a person. Therefore, the treatment plan objectives for that set of teeth MUST be dictated and authorized by that person.  So, our entire Ottawa dental team endeavor to listen, listen, LISTEN to the individual and personalized needs and desires of every single patient.  We know that standardized, “cookie-cutter” treatment plans cannot be applied to all patients.  It is our clinic’s duty to provide a comprehensive and complete diagnosis of each patient’s oral health condition, and it is also our clinic’s professional obligation to provide dental treatment options for diagnostically-identified conditions.  However, our Ottawa dental clinic recognizes that the final decision regarding dental treatment ALWAYS comes from the patient - ALWAYS. 

WE CARE!  “Do unto others as you would have them to unto you.”  Our entire Ottawa dental team cares for every patient with this Golden Rule mantra.  Our Ottawa dental team will never perform a dental procedure on a patient that we would not want to have done to ourselves given the same dental disease condition, and given our dental expertise.  Every dental patient is treated in the same way that we would treat a family member… because we truly CARE! 

Not only are we a leading dentist in Ottawa, we are a full-service practice providing for all of your dental needs.

  • Dr. Melvin Lee
    Doctor

    Dr. Lee graduated summa cum laude with an Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Neuroscience from McMaster University in 1997 and then received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Manitoba in 2002. He also served in the Canadian Forces as a Reservist Army Medical Assistant (1995-1999) and then as a Regular Force Army Dental Officer (1999-2007); during his tenure as a dental officer, Dr. Lee received extensive post-graduate training in a wide variety of specialties, including oral and maxillofacial surgery, rotary nickel-titanium endodontic therapy, and pain and anxiety control (held at the prestigious Bethesda Naval Medical Centre near Washington, DC). Desiring to further broaden his scope of practice for his patients, Dr. Lee pursued further post-graduate education in aesthetic dentistry (Post-Graduate Program in Aesthetic Dentistry at the University of Minnesota) and implant dentistry. 

    In order to improve the quality of care for Temporomandibular Dysfunction patients, Dr. Lee has recently joined The Pankey Institute  – dentistry’s leading provider of continuing education for clinical expertise.

    Dr. Lee has a heart for social justice in our community – both locally and globally. He has volunteered his time to serve in multiple First Nations reserves, at dental clinics associated with shelters for the homeless in various cities across Canada, and in mobile dental clinics serving impoverished communities overseas including dental mission trips to Haiti (2012, 2013) and Peru (2019).

    Dr. Lee is married to his beautiful wife Soo Jung with whom they have two beautiful children, Emma and Jabez. As a family, they enjoy: curling, downhill skiing, and skating on the Rideau Canal in the winter; golf, tennis, and basketball in the summer; and taekwondo no matter what the season!  In May of 2020, Dr. Lee became an executive member of the Korea Curling Federation and works part-time as a high-level international curling consultant.
