Mom and Son - Pediatric Dentist in Duncan, SC and Spartanburg County Dr. Lee Mai

Pediatric Dentist

Dr. Lee was born and raised in Boiling Springs, South Carolina. He attended Clemson University (Go Tigers!) where he obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences. He loved the Clemson area so much that he stuck around for a few more years to earn his Master of Science degree in Bioengineering.

After shadowing his childhood dentist, he decided to pursue a career in dentistry. This led him westward to Salt Lake City, Utah. Aside from hiking in five different national parks, hunting and fishing the beautiful landscapes of the mountain west, and blazing down mountain slopes on a snowboard, Dr. Lee decided he should also get his Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree. He graduated from Roseman University of Health Sciences.

He continued to enjoy the elements of the state of Utah all while practicing general dentistry. During his time as a general dentist, he also worked at Headstart and Give Kids a Smile programs. These programs, as well as seeing children in his practice, gave Dr. Lee the passion to pursue training in pediatric dentistry. He traveled even further west to the last frontier where he completed his residency in pediatric dentistry at NYU Langone Health in Anchorage, Alaska. After two years of the summer midnight sun and dark winter days, Dr. Lee returned to the upstate and joined the team at River Falls Pediatric Dentistry.

Dr. Lee spends his free time enjoying the outdoors hiking, fishing, archery, soccer, and traveling when he can. He is glad to be back in the upstate and is excited for the adventures ahead with River Falls Pediatric Dentistry.
