About Friendly Smiles & Our Services

Dr. Brandon Lee received his DMD from Boston University School of Dental Medicine in 2006. Returning home to Portland, Oregon, he started practicing general dentistry at a large corporate dental clinic. Being the only dentist at the clinic, Dr. Lee used his broad skill set to successfully treat patients who needed a variety of dental procedures such as root canals, crowns, fillings, extractions, dentures, and implants.

In 2008, Dr. Lee purchased a small private practice located on Hawthorne because he wanted to be in a diverse community. Dr. Lee values all people as unique and special, emphasizing the importance of relationships and communication. His dental aspiration is to listen to each patient’s needs and possible fears and then together develop a treatment plan that is best for that patient.

Over the years, he continues to stay up-to-date on advances in dentistry through continuing education. He also participates in study groups where he learns and practices new procedures that his patients could benefit from.

Dr. Lee’s favorite aspect of dentistry is the relationships that are established over time. His goal is to be a guide for patients to achieve a healthy mouth. Outside of the office, Dr. Lee enjoys spending time with his wife and three boys, running, riding, smoking meats, raising chickens, and taking on new projects around the house.

Dr. Deanna Lee has graduated from the Boston University School of dental medicine in 2007 and has been practicing general dentistry ever since. She barely knew where Portland Oregon was until she met her husband Dr. Brandon Lee in school who is native to Oregon and moved to Portland after they got married shortly after graduation. Originally from South Korea and having lived in Southern California many years until she went to college and dental school in Boston, there was an initial struggle in getting used to the rain (lots of rain!!), but she found the beauty of northwest and fell in the love with what Portland had to offer shortly and now she is well settled in the area with her three little children and her husband.

She has been practicing dentistry in Portland area well over ten years, and she recently joined her husband in Hawthorne area after selling her private practice in NE Portland. They welcomed their third child recently and she wanted more time invested in their children. She enjoys all aspects of general dentistry and believes in partnering with the patients in achieving their oral health. She values lasting relationships with every one of her patients and believes that the best care is possible from that trusting relationship. She is also a firm believer of preventative dentistry in which she can guide her patients before their oral health issues become overwhelming.

Outside of dentistry, she loves spending most of her time with her three little boys, even though at the moment it’s all about changing diapers and potty training and simple math!
