Meet Us Christopher Lee, MD

Dr. Christopher Lee is our anesthesiologist, board-certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology. He was born and raised in Southern California. He completed his undergraduate degree at the University of San Diego where he graduated with honors in biochemistry and mathematics. He then attended New York University School of Medicine, where he received his MD degree. Fleeing the cold weather, Dr. Lee returned to California to complete his four-year anesthesiology residency at the University of Southern California. During his residency, he received advanced training with high-risk patients undergoing complex surgical procedures.

While living in downtown Los Angeles, Dr. Lee met the love of his life Ashley and they were married in Laguna Niguel. After completing his residency, they moved to Arizona where he started his anesthesiology practice in a hospital setting before joining forces with one of his dad’s friends who practices dental anesthesia in the Valley. Dr. Lee thoroughly enjoys bringing his hospital experience with high-risk patients to the dental setting where he can safely administer anesthesia to even the most medically compromised patients. His breadth of anesthesia experience in the dental office setting provides our anxious and fearful patients at Desert Ridge Periodontics and Implant Dentistry the utmost comfort and safety while undergoing any type of dental procedure.
