Dr. J. Gina Lee graduated from the University of Toronto with honors and then went on to graduate from the Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery in New York City, where she received her Doctorate degree in Dental Surgery (D.D.S.). Subsequently, she completed a three-year orthodontics residency at the University of Connecticut where she was selected to be Chief Resident. During this time, she also completed a master’s degree in dental science. As a result of her involvement with cutting-edge research in orthodontics and dentistry, Dr. Lee was named the recipient of the prestigious Harry Sicher Award from the American Association of Orthodontists.
In addition to her former private orthodontic practice in the New York City area, Dr. Lee served as a faculty member at Columbia University Dental School teaching orthodontics. Dr. Lee regularly attends conferences and meetings in order to utilize the most current and up-to-date methods in her orthodontic practice. She is currently a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the Southern Association of Orthodontists, the North Carolina Association of Orthodontists and the American Dental Association.
After living in the New York City area for many years, Dr. Lee moved down to the Triangle, thanks to her husband’s work bringing him to Duke University Medical Center as an interventional radiologist. They have made a new home in Brier Creek and have a son named Justin and a daughter named Jenna. Her hobbies include hockey (mostly as a spectator), playing tennis and golf, photography, singing and playing the piano and violin.
