Dr. Richard Lee
Prosthodontist & Dental Implant Specialist in Sunnyvale CA
Dr. Richard Lee is a 1996 graduate of the College of Dentistry at New York University. During his senior year at NYU, Dr. Lee was among those who were selected to take part in the intensive Fixed Prosthodontics Honor Program. After completing a one-year general practice residency at Mount Sinai Hospital, he returned to NYU and pursued advanced training in dentistry. He received a certificate in Advanced Postgraduate Studies in Prosthodontics and Surgical Fellowship on Implant Dentistry at NYU. He also participated in various research projects and presented several clinical papers at various dental conferences. He is a recipient of the Klien Kicker Award for Outstanding Achievement, which is bestowed on those who complete specialty training in dentistry.
One of Dr. Lee’s mentors is the world-renowned implantologist, Dr. Dennis Tarnow. Dr. Tarnow advocates the importance of dual training in Implant Dentistry because he believes that a dentist who specializes in implant restoration will also place dental implants in proper positions.
Dr. Lee, who also served as an assistant clinical professor in Dr. Tarnow’s Implant Department for 10 years, has been at the cutting edge of research and new developments in dentistry. He has relocated to the Bay Area after owning and operating a very successful specialty practice on Madison Avenue in New York City.
When Dr. Lee is out of the office, he enjoys traveling the world with his family. Some of Dr. Lee’s favorite travel destinations include Amsterdam, Italy, Turkey, Dubai, Cancun, Japan, and Hong Kong. He also enjoys photography and features some of his work in our offices. Dr. Lee is multilingual and is fluent in Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese).
