Jared Lee, DDS
Dr. Jared Lee graduated with his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from Loma Linda University in 2008. After dental school, he spent 6 years practicing dentistry in Southern California before moving up to Alaska in 2014 to make Juneau his permanent home.
Dr. Lee greatly enjoys being an active volunteer in the dental community. This has included working with the American Dental Association as a regional chair for outreach programs for children, managing several volunteer dental clinics in the Los Angeles area and participating in a variety of dental health education programs. He also served in the House of Delegates for the California Dental Association, which entailed working with other dentists from around the state to govern the dental community in California.

In his spare time, he enjoys reading, hiking, going to the gym, traveling to new places, and spending quality time with his family.
Dr. Lee hopes that by educating the patient and working hand in hand with them, he can provide a healthy smile for all who come through the doors at his office. With every patient, he takes time to discuss goals, concerns, and solutions, so that every patient might walk out with the confidence that their mouth is in good hands. Away from the office, Dr. Lee makes it a point to attend continuing education courses to stay on top of the latest technology, procedures, and trends so that he can bring his patients the best that the field of dentistry has to offer.
Dr. Lee works with a group of well-trained team members that makes the dental experience fun and entertaining! The smiling faces that you see, starting with the front desk all the way to the dental chair, will help make your experience a positive one. If you ever have any questions or concerns, our staff will take the time to answer all of them, as well as make you feel at home in our office. Dr. Lee loves calling Alaska home and is proud to be serving the great community of Juneau.

RN, Office Administrator
Kristin is the wife of Dr. Lee and loves calling Juneau home. She is busy mom and spends most of her time taking care of their three children, but loves coming into the office a few days a week to complete administrative duties and help wherever is needed. She was born in Michigan, and met Dr. Lee while he was finishing up his undergraduate studies. She followed him to California when he began dental school and she congruently pursued a degree in nursing. She graduated in 2009 from California State University with a bachelor’s degree in nursing and is currently a licensed RN. She has worked with many types of medical patients and feels her nursing background overlaps in the dental office in assisting patients with their dental needs and making sure staff and patients are always having a positive experience. She loves learning new skills and attending continuing educations conferences with her husband and, like Dr. Lee, is also fluent in Spanish. In her spare time, she enjoys running, snowboarding, traveling, reading, and spending time with friends and family.
