Dr. Mindo Lee



Dr. Mindo Lee was born in Seoul, South Korea. He is a native to San Diego, CA, but he is pleased to call Los Angeles his home. Dr. Lee has been practicing dentistry since 2003. Dr. Lee puts the highest value on doing everything he can for all his patients to help them preserve their teeth. Dr. Lee is here to listen to his patient’s needs and address their personal dental needs. He strives to practice the highest quality of root canal therapy for all of his patients. He does this at Los Angeles Center for Endodontics by using the latest technology, going above and beyond in his continuing education courses.

His education started at Rancho Bernardo High School in San Diego, and then he went onto the University of California – San Diego where he graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Chemistry & Biochemistry. He then attended the Ostrow School of Dentistry at the University of Southern California where he completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree and a residency program in Advanced Education in General Dentistry. After several years of practicing general dentistry, Dr. Lee went back to school to earn his Endodontic Specialty degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in Philadelphia, PA. In his time as a dentist, he was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to serve as the team doctor for the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team from 2004-2008.

When he is not practicing endodontics, Dr. Lee loves to travel all around the world. His favorite places are Vienna, Austria, Canary Islands, Spain and Sydney, Australia.

Dr. Mindo Lee has also assisted in creating a completely new way of managing and running and endodontic practice by his contributions and work with DentalEMR – an Endodontic Practice Management System.

In his own words:

“My goal as an endodontist has always been to create a great experience for my patients by performing the procedure as efficiently and as predictable as possible. Root canal has always been perceived as a painful treatment. But, I’m here to change that perception. I am here to listen to my patient’s concerns so that I am able to address their personal dental needs. I take pride in utilizing the latest technology in endodontics that will allow treatment to be more predictable and completed in less time. I will provide my patients with exceptional endodontic care with the help of our highly trained, experienced, and caring professional team.”
