Meet Dr Joseph Lee

Following the Family Path to Dentistry

Dr Joseph Lee Dentist Mt Lawley

Dr Lee is passionate about providing quality dental care.

Inspired by his father, an oral surgeon, Joseph was destined to enter the dental profession. His mum even helped in his father’s surgery, and Joseph lived and breathed dentistry for his entire life. Also in the industry is his sister, who is a periodontist.

Though he briefly considered architecture as a career, Joseph went with the choice that felt natural and entered the University of Adelaide to earn a Bachelor of Dental Surgery, graduating in 1995. He then went on to Newcastle University in Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK, achieving a Master of Science in Restorative Dentistry.

Traveling Back Home From the UK

Before establishing his current practice, Joseph worked in a hospital setting in the UK. He taught in the undergrad clinics while he was seeing his patients, as well as conducting research in bonding systems. He then returned to Australia, opening Beaufort Street Dental Centre to serve our community with high-quality dental care.

We have a patient-centred practice, and truly get to know people and their families. It’s gratifying to interact with them and get positive feedback on our care.

He takes regular continuing education courses on dental materials, advanced techniques, basic clinical skills and dental implants. Additionally, Joseph is a member of the Australian Dental Association and the Australian Society for Implant Dentistry.

Staying Busy Outside of the Practice

Joseph and his wife have been married since 1997. She’s a former microbiologist and accountant, who now has three jobs: looking after the boys, keeping house and minding the books at the practice. They also stay busy with their active sons and the sports they participate in.

In his spare time, Joseph is an avid reader who reads anything he can get his hands on, from newspapers to magazines, novels and autobiographies. He’s a keen kayaker and has practiced Taekwondo since bringing his sons to a class. He uses it as a tool to discipline his mind and manage stress.
