    Dr. Chong Lee



    Dr. Chong Lee, an accomplished professional in every sense of the word, and a native of Arlington, started early in pursuit of his aspirations to become a dentist.

    He is a graduate of Medical College of Virginia and, professionally, has focused primarily on the philosophy of optimal care and superb service designed to exceed his patient’s expectations.

    This level of commitment as well as his passion for dentistry led Dr. Lee into the study of physiologic aesthetic dentistry; training that considers the importance of a balanced bite with the assurance of successful restorative and cosmetic procedures. In the process, Dr. Lee discovered that sleep dentistry is deeply integrated into the study of physiologic aesthetic dentistry.

    Dr. Lee chose Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), a world-renowned post-graduate center for aesthetic and neuromuscular dentistry to acquire the necessary skills and training necessary to achieve the highest level of success when treating his patients for physiologic disorders of the jaw, sleep apnea and addressing cosmetic needs. At LVI, Dr. Lee serves as clinical instructor and holds the prestigious title of Regional Director of LVI.

    Finding his life’s work both personally and professionally gratifying, Dr. Lee proudly shares his physiologic aesthetic dentistry and sleep dentistry with his fellow colleagues in a variety of venues.
