Meet Mike Lee, DDS
Best Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon in Chicago
Dr. Mike Lee completed his Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery residency at Vanderbilt University where he practiced all aspects of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, including facial trauma and benign pathologic reconstruction, temporomandibular joint surgery, orthognathic surgery, and zygomatic dental implant reconstruction.

From a young age, Dr. Lee knew he dreamt of pursuing a career in oral surgery after spending his time shadowing at his father’s practice in his hometown of Cincinnati.
