Doctor Howard Lee BDS (Otago, NZ)

Dr Howard Lee is happy to have returned to Ulladulla where he loves the lifestyle,

particularly spending time at the beach and in the bush. He enjoys the outdoors, surfing and

skiing in his spare time.

Dr Lee grew up in New Zealand before moving to Western Australia in 2009.

He graduated with Bachelor of Dental Surgery in University of Otago, New Zealand in 2004

and has been a dental surgeon for 13 years.

He has worked in the New Zealand Army as well as at Kalgoorlie and Karratha in Western

Australia. In 2014, he moved to Sydney, initially working at Engadine and then became a

partner at Caringbah Dental Care in 2017. He continues to work between Carringbah and

Ulladulla, enjoying a mix of city and regional life.

His main interests are cosmetic dentistry, children’s dentistry, wisdom tooth removal,

dentistry under sedation/GA and dental implants.

With more than a decade of experience in removing difficult, hard-to-remove wisdom teeth

and replacing missing teeth with dental implants, Dr Lee frequently receives referrals from

colleagues for difficult cases. In addition, he strives to make his fillings and crowns as natural

looking as possible.

Dr Lee takes numerous courses every year to improve his clinical skills and knowledge and

making his patients’ teeth healthy for life is his priority.
