Dr. Winnie Lee was born and raised in California to a father who is a dentist. She was raised in a dental office as her parents ran a dental business in San Jose, California. Her baby play-pen was situated in the office and to this day, long-time patients still remember her singing at the office as her dad treated patients and mom coordinated treatment. At the age of 11, she shadowed her dad and met several long-time patients that remember her dad relieving severe dental pain through root canal therapy. She was awed that root canal therapy can save teeth and preserve dental function. At the age of 12, she went with mom to watch Dr. Stanley Lee perform sinus augmentation surgery and implant placement at the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry.
It was also during this time that Dr. Winnie was undergoing orthodontic treatment. Her dad taught her that dentistry is “an art and science.” This unique combination of being able to create a better smile and relieve pain through careful examination and study made it imperative for her to pursue a career in dentistry. She saw the need for implant dentistry in preserving people’s dental form, function, phonetics and esthetics.
At Leland High School, Dr. Winnie was elected Class President two straight years, got straight A’s and was named Santa Clara County’s Young Woman of the Year – 2nd alternate.
Dr. Winnie Lee atttended University of the Pacific School of Dentistry and graduated at the age of 23.
In 2003, her parents helped her open her build her dream dental office, where she works today. Her dental office has all of the latest equipment. She enjoys working with adults and children to help improve and maintain better oral health.
