Our passion is designing beautiful and comfortable smiles. We promise that health, comfort and function will be our top priorities when restoring your teeth. We offer a full variety of dental services to help you achieve and maintain a healthy and beautiful smile.

We are quite different from many dental practices because we believe in taking a comprehensive approach to your dental health. Dr. Fujii and Dr. Lee examines every aspect of your dental health —your teeth, gums and other soft tissue in your mouth, as well as your jaw and the way you bite. He also uses digital x-rays and intra oral cameras to get a set of highly detailed images of your teeth. Then, using our advanced computer technology, Portland Dentals team educates you about the health of your mouth so that you can co-diagnose the problems with the doctors and work together to meet your personal goals. Ultimately, our goal is to provide a solid foundation for your smile for excellent dental health throughout your entire life.

He is a former president of the Southern Willamette Dental Society and an active member of the Mid Willamette Valley Study Club, Academy of General Dentistry, Oregon Dental Association, and American Dental Association.

Daniel Lee, DDS
Dr. Lee grew up just across the river in Vancouver, WA. Although he moved to California for 10 years for schooling, he has always considered the Pacific Northwest his true home. After graduating from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry, he was thrilled to move back to Portland in 2006. Dr. Lee’s patients appreciate his ability to put them at ease in the dental setting with his sense of humor as well as his thorough explanations of their dental needs.
