Brian Lee, D.M.D.
Dr. Brian Lee grew up in Woodburn, Kentucky where he graduated from Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, with a bachelor of science in biology. He then entered the Navy flight program through the Naval Officer Candidate School in Pensacola, Florida, and was commissioned Ensign. Following flight training, he graduated as a Naval Flight Officer and was assigned to VP-47 at Kaneohe Bay MCAS, Hawaii. He completed two deployments supporting Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. After his operational tour, he was selected as a flight instructor assigned to the 562nd Flight Training Squadron at Randolph Air Force Base, San Antonio. In an effort to pursue dentistry, he separated from the Navy with an Honorable Discharge. Dr. Lee then attended dental school at the University of Kentucky with the support of the Army Health Professions Scholarship Program where he received his D.M.D. with High Distinction and was recognized as the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) Distinguished Student. Upon graduating dental school he was commissioned as a Captain in the Army and selected to the Army’s Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery graduate program at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. While waiting to commence his residency, Dr. Lee was notified that he was one of two Army OMFS candidates selected to attend an OMFS 6-year dual degree out-of-service graduate training program. He remains on active duty and is currently a resident at the UT Health San Antonio Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery residency program.
His interest in this specialty began early in dental school and was solidified when shadowing military surgeons who were able to impact wounded warriors and facilitate the beginning of their healing process. Dr. Lee’s interests outside of oral surgery includes spending time with his wife and children, following University of Kentucky sports, exercising, traveling and corvettes.
