I am very glad I chose Dr. Lee for the orthodontic treatment of my two children. Her approach in their case was to start a little earlier and guide the teeth in, then adjust. Other orthodontists seem more inclined to wait and then try to fix the alignment sometimes requiring tooth removal or surgery. With Dr. Lee, it is a whole-mouth approach for beyond cosmetics. With treatment, a child who had speech, eating and sleeping difficulties had improvements in all these areas. Both children also had beautiful cosmetic results and Dr. Lee works to be sure the teeth stay in place long after treatment concludes. The office is bright, attractive and comfortable and the practice runs very efficiently.
My name is Yolonda D. and my son John for years suffered from ear infections and had tubes inserted. He had at least five infections a year. Jon also was diagnosed with speech problems and has been seeing a speech therapist for the last three years. I came to see Dr. Lee just for a second opinion because the first dentist said to return after all his baby teeth fell out. Dr. Lee was shocked to see his throat structure and asked me if it was affecting his speech, breathing and ears. I honestly had no idea about a possible connection, but today, seven months later, he hasn’t had an infection again and was released from speech therapy. His proficiency in reading has improved 80% and his smile is absolutely beautiful.
Thank you Dr. Sue Lee for all your help and to show me that having straight teeth is more than esthetics but also is about health!
Hello, my name is Fran A. and I’m from Ashland, MA,
I was ashamed to smile, whenever I took pictures I would smile with my lips closed so that my crooked teeth wouldn’t show. My main problem was that I thought an orthodontic treatment was way too expensive since I don’t have dental insurance, and therefore out of my reach.
Besides having very crooked teeth and a weird bite and smile I also had bruxism (teeth grinding at night) – my mom said I got it from my dad, but I think it was because of my stressful days. When I started using a night guard as to not grind my teeth at night anymore (I had a cracked tooth and exposed root because of it and had to put a crown on my molar), I started thinking about braces again, but when I broke my night guard because I still grinded my teeth at night, I knew I needed help.
I looked into “cheap” and “quick” solutions like the “6 month smile” treatment (this does not fix your bite or any other orthodontic problems you may have) and found out it wasn’t for me because of my night guard. Without any other options, I visited an orthodontist in my town and she told me that I would need to have about 5 teeth extracted in order to start the treatment… I ran out of there like I had seen a ghost. I didn’t know what to do, I had to choose between a temporary help [another night guard] or to tackle the problem by its root once and for all. I decided on the cheapest although temporary solution: I went to my dentist for another night guard – and then she told me to go to Dr. Lee in Framingham and have a consultation with her instead.
Dr. Lee saw my problem, and knowing I needed help ASAP, started my treatment that same day – exactly 1 year and 1 month ago to this date. She worked with me on a payment plan that I could afford and my treatment was done within 13 months! I am now wearing my permanent retainers and for the first time in a long time I can’t stop staring at my teeth in the mirror and smiling! Dr. Lee’s entire staff is great and very knowledgeable and above all caring. They helped me with emergencies and endless questions and worries and always had a smile on their faces because of everyone’s hard work, today I’m the one smiling!
Dr. Lee I want to thank you for your hard work and diligence and for also thinking outside the box so that your patients can have better treatment and therefore better results! I truly hope more people will come to you before having an orthodontist pull their teeth without letting them know about the terrible consequences of such actions in the near future.
As for me, I’m looking forward to days filled with more smiles and mornings without a dislocated jaw due to teeth grinding at night, because now my smile and my bite are in perfect sync!
