About Dr. Lee
Dr. Jay Lee was born and raised in Portland, OR. His interest in oral surgery developed over time, and while he was completing his training, he realized the specialty appealed to him more than any other. Joining the team at LACOMS was an easy decision for Dr. Lee. Dr. Relle was his mentor when he was at UCLA, and he liked that the practice focuses on hospital-based, major surgeries.
Dr. Lee enjoys being an oral surgeon for the simple fact that he enjoys helping patients. He finds his job incredibly rewarding because he gets to do what he loves every day. Oral surgery combines all of his interests and allows him to take care of patients in a full scope. He works hard to help patients feel comfortable and reassure them that he will treat them like his own family.
Dr. Lee received his bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from Pacific Union College in 2007. After completing his undergraduate career, he continued on to dental school at UCLA. In 2011, he graduated with his Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. Once he was done with dental school, Dr. Lee decided to take his education one step further and pursue a medical degree. He felt that holding both a dental and medical degree would help him provide the very best, most comprehensive care to his patients. He graduated from the University of Texas Southwestern in 2014 and stayed in Texas to complete his residency.
After completing both his dental and medical degrees, Dr. Lee entered his oral and maxillofacial residency program at his alma mater, UT Southwestern. During his residency, he trained alongside surgeons and anesthesiologists. He learned the full scope of oral and maxillofacial procedures and trained in the safe administration of all forms of anesthesia. These extra years of training make Dr. Lee the most qualified dental professional to perform a wide range of procedures, including wisdom teeth removal and dental implant placement.

Outside of work, Dr. Lee enjoys spending time with his wife and dogs. Additionally, he enjoys traveling and exploring new places, cooking delicious meals and trying new recipes, and skiing when the climate permits it.
