Dr. Lee obtained her Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the National University of Singapore (NUS). During her time in NUS, she was placed on the Dean's List. She received the Outstanding Undergraduate Researcher Prize for her group Undergraduate Research Opportunities Project on oral care education for children at special schools, and went on to publish a paper in the International Journal of Paediatric Dentistry in conjunction with the project.
Upon graduation, she has worked at polyclinics under National Healthcare Group and SingHealth, as well as at the National Dental Centre. She was also posted to the Singapore Armed Forces as a dental officer. At these postings, she had the opportunity to treat patients of all ages and see a wide range of cases. This has served her well in caring for her patients with gentleness and patience to put them at ease.
Aside from work, Dr. Lee's interests include dance and travel.
