Dr. Tony Lee attended the University of Mississippi where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology and then in 2005 he received his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) from University of Mississippi School of Dentistry. Tony relocated to the St. Augustine area in 2006 and spent the next few years as an associate dentist in a group practice on Anastasia Island. In July 2010 he opened a private practice in St. Augustine and it has become known for its welcoming atmosphere, caring and friendly staff along with having coffee and cookies ready for the taking.
Tony was raised in Ocean Springs, MS (also known as the City of Discovery) and knew from a very early age that he wanted to be a dentist. He is committed to providing the highest quality of preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry while focusing on oral health and patient education. He understands that going to the dentist makes many people nervous however; with his gentle and caring personality he is able to create a warm and comfortable environment for his patients. He knows that sometimes the first step is just by offering people a chance to stop by the office, take a look around, and meet with Tony and his team.
Tony supports his community in several different ways in an effort to give back to the town he proudly calls his home. He volunteers his time and services at the Good Samaritan Health Center: Wildflower Clinic who assists residents that are medically uninsured and unable to afford dental care. He also provides time in his schedule to offer dental care to the residents at the Alpha Omega Miracle Home (AOMH). AOMH provides shelter, compassion, and support for homeless single mothers, children, and seniors. For more information on the AOMH please click here.
Outside the office Tony enjoys reading, fishing, kayaking, and going to local sporting events.
A Fun Fact: One of Tony’s favorite characters is Hermey, the elf from the movie Rudolph the Red- Nosed Reindeer, who dreamed of becoming a dentist rather than making toys.
