Meet Our Doctors

Skill and compassion go hand in hand when providing exceptional patient care.  



Dr. Jae Lee, DDS, PA (AEGD-1, ACD)

Cary Dental Group, originally Cary Lee Family Dentistry, was founded by Doctor Jae Lee, a UNC School of Dentistry graduate with over 20 years of experience in the dental laboratory and advanced clinical dentistry. He is a retired Major of the Air Force, and practiced dentistry with the military for 28 years prior to founding Cary Lee Dentistry. Due to the growing demands of his patients, Dr. Lee expanded his clinic to found Cary Dental Group - a group practice that continues to offer family general dentistry as well as Periodontal and Endodontic services. Dr. Lee specializes in prosthodontics, especially crown and bridgework. 


In his free time, he enjoys golfing and traveling.


"Due to my compassionate nature and love for the sciences, I have since long known that I would be best suited to a career in healthcare. Dentistry stood out from other fields of work because it had the additional aspect of intricate manual work, something which I want to be a feature of my everyday job."

-Dr. Jae Lee
