Dr. and his staff are amazing. He did a wonderful job on the procedure and follow-up. His office staff is top notch and they made a difficult experience very successful. I cannot recommend him and his staff enough. They are the best!!
in Cincinnati, OH |
Dr. Michael Lee is a kind and professional dentist. Very patient with me and my fear of dentists. I was in great pain due to an infection and root tip that had to be removed. I was given the Polar Cooling wrap to take home. This really decreased my pain and swelling. I only had to use the pain meds prescribed minimally. Thankyou Dr. Lee and your staff.

My son had his four wisdom teeth extracted with two of them impacted. Dr.Lee was professional, specific in detail and sensitive to our concerns. He was recommended to us as the best and he met those expectations. His staff is also courteous, professional and exceedingly friendly. In a situation of concern, Dr.Lee and his staff alleviated all worries.

in Georgetown, OH |
Very easy recovery from wisdom tooth extraction X4 - even at 41 years old! The Cool Comfort Wrap kept pain and swelling minimal. I didn't even take pain medication! That device is amazing !! I would NEVER have a dental surgery without one !!
in Cincinnati, OH |
I highly recommend Dr. Lee after a very pleasant wisdom teeth extraction surgery. Very minimal pain, and was almost back to normal after only a few days. I was sent home with a very helpful and high quality ice machine as well as detailed instructions on how to have the best experience possible! Highly recommend!
in Cincinnati, Ohio |
He was a wonderful surgeon and was extremely willing to make sure the extraction of my wisdom teeth was as comfortable for me as it could be. The comfort cool wrap worked wonders and was extremely helpful when it came to recovering and healing. I was better in no time and wearing that wrap made pain so much more bearable.
in Cincinnati, OH |
The technique was hassle and pain free. Recovery was fast and painless with the Polar Care unit. Compared to what I've heard from my friends, I probably had the best experience with recovery. For someone with extreme anxiety when it comes to dental work, this was the easiest procedure I've ever had done. Dr. Lee and his staff were very friendly and made this experience a very pleasant one. They kept me calm through the entire process.
in Cincinnati, OH |
I had my Wisdom Teeth removed and had a great experience. I did experience some pain a few days after surgery, but had no problem getting in to the office right away to get a medicine pack placed, which instantly took care of my discomfort. Dr. Lee is very friendly and made sure I was taken care of. My recovery was quick! I highly recommend Dr. Lee.
in Batavia, OH |
My experience of having my wisdom teeth removed was great. Dr Lee and staff were courteous to me. I felt comfortable with the procedure. My recovery time was quick.
