Meet Our Team
Check out our great, caring and friendly staff of doctors, hygienists and assistants.
Dr. Folden W Lee, D.D.S. is here to help you overcome your fears of the dentist. As a premiere Clayton dentist, we’ve been providing patients with the best dental care possible since 2002. Dr. Folden Lee and Dr. Jonathan Hairr’s experience in dentistry is coupled with genuine concerns for their patients and overall health. Our goal is to keep your teeth health and your smile bright.
Using a combination of advanced technology and trusted experience, we help patients achieve the smile of their dreams. This includes the use of laser dentistry for periodontal services and fighting gum disease. It also includes partnering with expert vendors to bring our patients cosmetic dental services such as the same day dental crowns made possible by CEREC® milling technology. We also use the latest technologies for teeth whitening, and porcelain veneers. The Sirona 3D X-Ray machine helps us meticulously plan your dental implants and eliminate any guess work. Our hope is that every patient knows that your smile means as much to us as it does to you!
For patients to choose a Clayton dental office appropriate to their needs there must exist a match between the services sought by the patient with the services provided by the office. If the value you possess for your teeth and health coincides with our beliefs in fine dentistry and prevention, a mutually rewarding relationship should evolve for both parties. As a form of welcoming you and sharing our beliefs about how we serve patients, the following information is provided.
A Dental office is a small health-oriented team of professionals dedicated to serving patients. Each office maintains certain standards of skill and concern and we want an aura about us that unquestionably makes a statement of our quality of care. To make this evident, we have committed to a particular kind of practice. In a philosophical sense, basically one is devoted to either quantity (do a little for a lot of people) or to quality (optimal care on a long-term basis for regular patients). We want to attract and keep people who share our values and beliefs in excellence or can grow to this level of appreciation through education and motivation. We seek a patient population dominated by people with high expectations of good health and happiness.
Excellence in dentistry begins with a careful diagnosis and treatment plan to move us toward the goals we will establish together. We will perform an extensive and comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums, bite, joints, and soft tissues. When needed, and with your permission, we will utilize all appropriate x-rays. If beneficial, will use intra-oral photographs and study models of your teeth and jaws to identify areas of concern. We believe this in-depth examination to be the cornerstone of quality dentistry in Clayton, NC.
In this country, at this time, with the government becoming more involved in health care, insurance carriers trying to dictate treatment and fees, and some dental offices competing through advertising, extended hours and pricing, the very foundation of dentistry is being tested. We believe there has never been a time when a practice dedicated to prevention, to service, and to excellence can be more highly rewarding to both our patients and to us, in providing quality, long-term health care. We hope you agree and will join our family.
The whole family is welcome at Dr. Folden W. Lee DDS. We strive to create long lasting relationships with each patient. And we think you’ll love your dental experience in our newly remodeled office.
Our goal with cosmetic dentistry is to help our patients feel comfortable with their smile. We offer a wide range of services to rejuvenate and enhance your bright smile.
Dental implants are a safe and effective method for replacing badly damaged or missing teeth. There are many types and options of dental implants, so feel free to call and get more information.
Dental bridges are another option for replacing missing or badly damaged teeth. A dental bridge would span a gap between one or more teeth and attached to existing teeth or implants. Find our more about dental bridges here.
Root canal therapy is treatment of the inner tooth or pulp cavity to combat an infection. Clearing the infection is crucial and prevention of future infections is also a main priority. If you’re experiencing severe tooth pain you schedule an appointment with your dentist immediately.
Gum disease is a serious condition that can affect overall oral health. Untreated gum disease can eventually lead to tooth loss and other major problems. Regular dental appointments are critical for gum disease control and prevention.
