Meet Our Team
DR. SAMSON LEE, D.D.S.
"I honestly cannot see myself doing something other than dentistry. I come from a family of dentists which include an uncle, and 2 cousins who are dentists as well. Ever since I was 13 years old I knew this was what I was wanted to do. Dentistry is an embodiment of art and science, my two favourite areas of study. The mouth is the canvas and different materials such as porcelain and resin are the media. Every beautiful smile is a work of art. There is nothing more rewarding than knowing you were able to make a positive impact on a person's life.
I am very proud of our team at Credit River Dental Centre that continually strive to provide the very best in oral care. Through many hours devoted to continuing education courses and seminars, we keep up to date on the latest techniques and materials in dentistry to ensure our patients are receiving the most current treatment protocols. Our patients deserve nothing less."
Dr. Lee studied at the University of Toronto with an Honors degree in Human Biology. From there he shuffled off to Buffalo where he attended the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine and obtained his dental degree. After graduation Dr. Lee completed a one year General Practice Residency at Buffalo General Hospital where he had the opportunity to treat patients from all walks of life but particularly patients from the inner city.
Upon his return to Canada, Dr. Lee had the opportunity to work in various dental offices between Toronto and Hamilton which provided invaluable experience in honing his skills in all areas of dentistry. Dr. Lee continues to perfect those skills and is a member of a number of professional dental organizations including The Academy of General Dentistry, Toronto Crown and Bridge Study Club, The Toronto Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and The Ontario Dental Association. One of the many highlights of Dr. Lee's dental career was the chance to give back to the community by volunteering his time at The George Brown Dental Clinic for a number of years.
Dr. Lee is happily married and loves to introduce 80's music to his three beautiful kids. When he has any free time it is usually filled with trips to IKEA, playing golf and softball and making pizza dough from scratch.
"I look forward to keeping you smiling for a lifetime!"
