Meet the Dentists

Dr. Grace Lee

Dr. Grace Lee

Dr. Lee graduated from the Ohio State University with two degrees– a BS in Human Nutrition and a BS in Chemistry. She went on to earn her DDS degree from the Ohio State University College of Dentistry. Passionate about creating whole-mouth health for her patients, Dr. Lee continues her education with coursework in implantology and esthetic smile design. Her professional memberships include the American Dental Association, the Illinois State Dental Society, the Chicago Dental Society, and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

Dr. Lee has performed over 100 extractions a day for four weeks, a life-changing experience that reminded Dr. Lee of her promise to dedicate her life to serving people in need through compassionate dentistry. Dr. Lee returned to Mongolia two years later and has since volunteered her services in Nicaragua and for the local community at the Lawndale dental clinic. Her favorite part of patient care is hearing patients say, "I've had fear of the dentist for years and dealt with dental problems for years. I'm so glad that I found you! I'm finally pain-free, and I can smile with confidence."

Dr. Lee resides in Chicago with her sons Noah and Jonah. When she's not creating beautiful smiles, Dr. Lee enjoys cooking, running, concerts, and spending time with her family.

Learn More About The Lakeview Smiles Logo

The Lakeview Smiles logo is a visual representation of our dental philosophy. We know that every patient has an inner light—full of confidence and happiness—that is just waiting to be revealed.

Our dental team believes that this inner light can be communicated through a patient’s smile—after all, your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you! By providing compassionate and high quality dental care, our dentists help make your inner light visible by giving you a smile that you love to show off.

The center of our logo is a small splash of light. From this ray of light, multiple threads extend out into the world, they grow, and they blossom. This is the same thing that happens to our patients once they discover their strong and confident smiles—and that is why, here at Lakeview Smiles, we love coming to work every day!
