Dr. Kenny and Dr. Kai took over their Bayside practice from Dr. Ross Green after he retired in mid 2013. The practice, originally opened in the 1980s on Bay Street in Brighton, now calls Bayside home. The dentists and staff that serve the Bayside community look forward to getting to know you and your family.

Dr Kenny Lee

 

Dr Kenny Lee received his Bachelor of Dental Science in 2004 from the University of Melbourne and has been practising dentistry in Melbourne suburbs for over 15 years.

Offering only the highest standard of optimal care, Kenny loves being able to improve his patient’s overall well-being and improve the way their smiles look. Kenny will always provide the patient with a range of options that will allow them to make an informed decision on the treatment plan that suits them best.

As well as completing a diploma in Progressive Orthodontics and being an accredited Invisalign provider, Kenny continues to keep up-to-date in the latest scientific-based approach to dental care by regularly attending dental update meetings and conferences. Kenny is well versed in all aspects of dentistry and is experienced in more advanced techniques such as CEREC same-day crown procedures and 3-D planned surgical guide implant treatment. Kenny particularly enjoys improving smiles and aesthetics in hopes to improve self-satisfaction and confidence for patients.

Kenny married Elizabeth in 2004, and they have two daughters, Abigail (born in 2011) and Isabel (born in 2013). He spends most of his free time with family and enjoys taking girls out to day trips down to Mornington Peninsula or other exciting places where they can learn and explore. There seems to never be enough time when there are so many things for the girls to enjoy and love doing! When time allows, Kenny does enjoy a round of golf with his friends and is hoping to play more often as his daughters grow up.
