April Lee, DDS, MS

Dr. April Lee is a certified specialist in Orthodontics and Dentofacial orthopedics. She received her undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of California at San Diego, her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of California at San Francisco, and her Orthodontic and Masters of Science in Craniofacial biology from USC. Dr. Lee is an expert in Adult and Children’s Braces and Invisalign and has been creating beautiful smiles in the bay area since 2008.

Dr. Lee’s practice philosophy is to ensure that every patient who comes to meet with her for an orthodontic consultation feels listened to and well taken care of. Every patient’s concerns and goals for improving their smile is unique and Dr. Lee strives to make sure that each person’s treatment plan is individualized. There is no question too big or too small that she cannot answer for you.

Having grown up in Southern California, Dr. Lee has made the Bay area her home for nearly 15 years now. In her free time she is busy playing and training her new puppy Teddy, a mini labradoodle who was born in early 2017. She is also a big “foodie” and never tires of trying the constant influx of amazing new restaurants in the local area and San Francisco.

Dedicated to constantly improving her skills as an orthodontist, Dr. Lee often travels to continuing education courses. She also is a leader in her community and is currently serving as a board member of the local San Mateo County Dental Society. Dental society board members organize continuing education courses for local area dentists as well as facilitate many community outreach projects such as free community dental health screenings and the wildly successful CDA cares. The most recent CDA cares held here in San Mateo involved thousands of volunteers who provided several million dollars of free dentistry for people in need in our community.

Here are some nice things patients have said about Dr. Lee:

“This place is very new and clean on the inside. The staff is SUPER friendly- not what you expect for an orthodontist office, they make you feel very appreciated and welcomed. Dr. April Lee is very nice and professional. My fiance is starting invisalign treatment there soon and looks forward to great results.”  S.W.

 “I highly recommend dr. Lee she was great at explained everything to me.” K.M.

“easy to get to; the wait time was probably at most 2 minutes. It would appear Dr. Lee was not stretched so thin to see multiple patients. I also felt I had more of a one on one experience with Dr. April Lee. She was great! …I’m a very satisfied/happy customer. I have the perfect smile to prove it! 🙂 ”  E.S.

“Dr Lee’s work is great … I would definitely recommend her” A.B.
