Meet the Doctors: Dr. Winnie Lee, Associate Doctors: Dr. Min Wei, Dr. Christine Lee, Dr. Yang Gao
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.
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.
