I will definitely recommend this place to my friends!!!

  • Dr. Lee is a really wonderful dentist! He provides excellent, kind, gentle and expert dental care. You can tell that he genuinely cares about his patients and their dental health and well being. He also took excellent care of my 90+ year old mother, attending expertly to her needs and helping her feel very comfortable with the work she had to have done. The staff is friendly and helpful! Excellent dentist!

    Laurie McNeill
  • Wonderful new practice. Dr. Lee and staff couldn’t have been nicer. Dr. Lee spent a great deal of time with my son and myself reviewing his medical/dental history. He provided thoughtful, knowledgeable and insightful responses to our concerns. Beautiful, modern office. Definitely recommend!

    Lisa Coniglio
  • Dr. Lee and his staff made my experience at the dentist enjoyable. The atmosphere is welcoming – a clean, new office. I was greeted with friendly conversation. Dr. Lee clearly explained everything to be done, his plan for my future care and asked if I had any questions/concerns. The complimentary cleaning and whitening were great. Thank you, Dr. Lee, Alexis, and Danielle for your care!

    Lori Mimnaugh
  • Best experience at a dentist that I have ever had. In a time where patient satisfaction is priority, Dr. Lee and his staff have perfected it. Dr. Lee explained every aspect of my care, current and future, leaving me with no questions to ask. Makes me that more comfortable with him as my dentist. Definitely one step ahead!

  • An amazing Dental Office. Very professional but also very warm and helpful staff. I had work to do with my teeth so had to come back a few times so I can definitely say that “Not success but service” is definitely more than just a motto. Doctors spend time with you as long as you need to understand and explain step by step. Moreover, this clinic is just perfect for somebody like me with poor dental insurance. They can lay out all your financial options. The lovely ladies in the front helped me to relax myself because I’m really scared of dentists.

    Kata Walczak
  • I went to Bear Brook Dental Care as a new patient and I saw Dr. Kiwon Lee. I was greeted by friendly staff that made me feel welcome. Dr. Lee was very kind and patient. He took the time to explain the x-rays and the procedures in detail. He made me feel very comfortable with what he was doing. Dr. Lee is an excellent dentist and the facility has impressive state of the art equipment. I highly recommend Dr. Lee for your dental care.
