Dr. Jeff Lee
Dr. Lee is a native Ohioan and attended the Ohio State University College of Dentistry. He then completed his oral surgery residency at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

What He Can Do For You
Dental Implants: Dental implants are one of the most complete and reliable ways of restoring your missing teeth. The procedure starts with a minor surgery to implant a new root into your jaw. While many general dentists offer to complete this procedure themselves, they will have nowhere near the training and experience comparable to an oral surgeon like Dr. Lee. He has performed the procedure thousands of times, assuring the success of your implants and the rapidity of your healing time.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction: Unlike other teeth extractions, wisdom teeth can present a very complicated problem. They may come in crooked, impact other teeth, or become infected. This is why many people often choose to the have them removed before they erupt. Dr. Lee and his team can evaluate your wisdom teeth and let you know when the time is right for this procedure. They can then handle the extraction in such a way that your post-operative recovery will be minimal.
Jaw Surgery: Chronic jaw pain can be caused by a multitude of factors such as injury or arthritis. It can also severely impact your day to day life in several ways. Not only can chronic jaw pain be felt in the facial muscles, but many times it can manifest as reoccurring headaches and even ear pain. More and more people are realizing their migraines are actually caused by their jaw pain. Dr. Lee will be able to give you a consultation and figure out exactly what is causing your discomfort, as well as how it can be treated. Should you require surgery, he can of course handle it himself. Each person’s case is different, but he has the right skills and team behind him to handle every situation easily and professionally.
Dr. Lee makes it easy for you and your general dentist to answer the question, “Who is the best oral surgeon near me?” When it comes to any kind of surgery, you want the most knowledgeable and confident professional you can find.
