Meet Dr. Shauna Lee – Founder & General Dentist in East Los Angeles, CA

Experienced Dentist Offering Compassionate Care

As a child, my dream was actually to become a veterinarian. This was probably because my parents did not allow me to have any pets and so I figured this was the only way I would get to be around animals. This dream persisted until I was an undergraduate student at USC and began taking courses in human biology and anatomy and found it fascinating. At the time, my older brother was a student at the UCLA School of Dentistry and encouraged me to also pursue dentistry. I love dentistry because it allows me to create beautiful smiles, improve patients’ self-esteem, build lasting relationships, and truly transform people’s lives. I have seen many of my former child patients return as adults with children of their own. One of my current dental assistants has been a patient of mine since she was seven years old.

I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Southern California, majoring in psychobiology. I earned my dental degree from the UCLA School of Dentistry in 1990 and then completed a postgraduate Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency at the UCLA School of Dentistry in 1991. I was awarded the prestigious status of Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry in 1995 and also maintain active membership in the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and the Los Angeles Dental Society.

My staff and I are committed to providing exceptional customer service and treating each and every patient with the kindness and respect they deserve in a calm, pleasant, and friendly environment. I realize that many people are nervous about going to the dentist and my staff and I are committed to easing every patient’s fears and making them feel comfortable and relaxed in our office. We ensure that each patient is treated in a gentle and caring manner.

I believe in staying at the forefront of dental technology and techniques through advanced education. I continue to improve my knowledge and skills through continuing education courses and hands-on training in all aspects of general dentistry, including cosmetic dentistry, implant dentistry, endodontic therapy, periodontal therapy, and full-mouth rehabilitation.

I have two wonderful sons, Jordan and Kyle. I love spending time with them and traveling the world with them. I also enjoy Bikram yoga and hiking. And I finally have pets of my own – a Corgi and a Husky!
