Making a big difference in little smiles

As a pediatric dentist and a mother of two young children, I enjoy ​both my day and night job being around fascinating little ones. I ​love building relationships with compassion and offering guidance ​and help to establish long-lasting healthy smiles. It is a privilege for ​me to be part of young children’s life journeys as they become ​remarkable adults. My goal is to help children find comfort, ​courage, and confidence in caring for their oral health. I promise to ​care for your little one as I would for my own.


I obtained my bachelor of science degree in Economics with a ​business minor certificate from the University of Wisconsin-Madison ​in 2010 (Go Badger!). Having found my true passion in “people,” I ​took a turn in my career and followed my beloved grandmother’s ​footsteps in becoming a dentist. In preparation for dentistry, I ​received a Master’s degree from Columbia University in Human ​Nutrition in 2011 and researched the links between periodontal ​disease and obesity. My thesis was later published in the Journal of ​clinical endocrinology and metabolism.

Driven by my passion for disease prevention, I founded the ​student chapter of the American Association of Public Health ​Dentistry at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. I ​obtained my Doctor of Dental Surgeon degree with high ​distinction in 2015. I was honoured with multiple scholarship ​nominations and was one of the 40 Paul Ambrose scholars ​selected to participate in the National Association for Prevention ​Teaching and Research in Washington, DC.


My pediatric specialty training took place in the beautiful ​sunshine state, Florida, with New York University Langone Health ​Center in Suncoast Community Health Center, Tampa General ​Hospital (a Level I trauma centre), and South Florida Baptist ​Hospital. I also served as the chief resident in my senior year. I ​am a board-certified pediatric dental specialist in both the US ​and Canada.

Much of my experiences volunteering helped shape me as a well-​rounded healthcare provider in the community locally, nationally, and ​internationally. You can find me in Ronald McDonald House serving ​food, in summer camp being silly with kids, in kindergarten and ​elementary schools teaching children about their mouths, at the city ​hall lobbying on behalf of patients and the dental profession, and at ​dental mission trips near and far. The excitement from tasting cocoa ​in Guatemala and watching the stars from the southern hemisphere in ​Bolivia is still vivid in my mind. I am so lucky to find real joy and ​excitement in my profession!


I am currently active in our community in Vancouver as a member of ​BCDA, serving on the Early Childhood Caries Prevention Task Force ​and of AAPD, CAPD, ABPD, RCDC, CCDSBC, CDSPD, DSSBC, and ​the Greater Vancouver Study Club. I regularly participate in ​continuing education to stay on top of the latest advancement in ​dentistry. I also enjoy teaching and am a part-time clinical assistant ​professor at UBC pediatric dental department.

Born in the US and grew up in Taipei, Taiwan, I am fluent in ​Mandarin and English. I met my husband in New York City ​during my student life and moved to his beloved hometown, ​Vancouver, in 2017. I enjoy traveling, being an amateur ​photographer, playing music with my guitar, having silly ​dance parties with my girls, and singing karaoke. You will ​find me humming Disney songs around the clinic! I also play ​ultimate frisbee in the summer. My latest passion is blogging ​about baby teeth and documenting my baby girls’ dental ​journey to show that you are not alone as a parent!

Hi!

I am Dr. Anthony Lee

Nice to meet

you!

Making a big difference in little smiles

Dr. Anthony was raised in Vancouver where he was, as a teenager, first ​introduced to working with children at the Sunny Hill Health Centre. He ​continued his interest in the human condition and completed his ​undergraduate degree in Anthropology at McGill University before ​completing dental school in New York, where he was accepted into the ​pediatric dentistry honours program during his final year of studies.


He subsequently completed his combined Master of Science and specialty ​training in pediatric dentistry in Chicago. Four cities and many thought ​experiments later, fate decided it was time for him to move home and he has ​been happily serving his childhood community since!


On weekends, you may find Dr. Anthony perusing through the aisles of ​grocery stores, baking up a storm in the kitchen, or rummaging through flea ​markets and estate sales. He also enjoys conversations around linguistics, ​moral philosophy, and history. You may also find that he has an unhealthy ​obsession with architecture and fluffy animals (raccoons included)!
