Dr. James Lee Dentist / Practice Owner
Hi, I am Dr. James Lee, your dentist. You may be surprised to learn that I have been a career patient in the dental chair, having struggled with cavities, root canals, lost teeth, and crooked teeth. Having “walked the walk”, I enjoy providing helpful solutions for my clientele. While at Loma Linda School of Dentistry, I developed a passion for preventative dentistry under the renowned cariologist Dr. Brian P. Novy. Currently, I am an avid student of digital dentistry which I believe will make dentistry more enjoyable and affordable for all. I am a proud member of prestigious dental organizations such as the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, San Fernando Dental Society, International Congress of Oral Implantologists, American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, and Academy of General Dentistry. At home, I stay busy raising my energetic toddler boy, Gian with my wife, Young Ju.
Hi I am Debbiee, your hygienist. It has been my pleasure taking care of our patients for over 30 years as a Registered Dental Hygienist. I have developed amazing relationships with many of you and appreciate each patient's loyalty to our practice. As a team, we take care of each person individually to assist you in feeling comfortable and confident as you receive your dental cleaning. My family loves the outdoors!. We have enjoyed many wonderful memories of camping, going to the beach and yes, dirt back riding together. We look forward to our future keeping life simple and enjoyable.
Karen Dental Assistant
Hi, I am Karen, your dental assistant in Dr. Lee’s office. Having graduated from Simi Valley Career Institute for dental assisting in 1973, I got married and started a family with a daughter and son. Recently, a grandson joined my family, and they are the loves of my life. I have enjoyed an extensive career in the dental field spanning 40 years. During this time, I have seen many changes and advancements which has continued to spark my excitement for the field. I have worked 24 years for Dr. Hoefke until Dr. Lee recently took over the office who continues to challenge us with new horizons in digital dentistry. My favorite aspect of work is interacting with people. I am a people person and have truly enjoyed developing long term relationships with our patients who are like family now.
Delmy Dental Assistant
Hi I am Rosa (better known as Delmy) your dental assistant at Dr. Lee’s office. I am originally from a small island off the coast of El Salvador. I always loved helping people and with that passion I went to school to become a Registered Dental Assistant in 1998. I joined Dr. Hoefke’s office in 2009 until Dr. Lee took over the office in 2019. It is a wonderful feeling being able to help our patients with their dental needs and being able to grow in dental knowledge. When I see patients, I put myself in their position and try to provide good advice I gained over the many years in the dental field. I am happy to be part of a team that strives to provide the best dental care. I am bilingual in English and Spanish and have a teenage daughter Daniela. We just added a new member to our family, Princess, our mixed Chihuahua.
Lissien Office Manager
Hi, I am Lissien, your office manager at Personalee Dental. I have been with Dr. Lee since 2021, bringing over 7 years of dental experience with me. I Graduated from Charter College for the dental assisting program back in 2013. As the years went, my role in the dental field expanded to the manager position. I came into the dental field because growing up as a child, I did not have the best teeth and never wanted to smile because I was ashamed of how my teeth looked. With restorative dental work and ortho treatment, I was finally able to achieve the smile I always dreamed about. It has boosted my confidence and I smile more than I ever have before. Having this personal experience, I want all our patients to feel the same about their smile, and when they walk out of our office, to know that I was part of their dental journey to a healthy, beautiful smile. I am bilingual in English and Spanish, and I am a mom to a beautiful son. In my spare time, I enjoy being a mom, madidate, read, and being adventurous.
