Dr. Sonia Lee
Dr. Sonia Lee was raised in Flushing, Queens and knew at a very young age that she wanted to work in the field of medicine. During her junior high days, she volunteered at Booth Memorial Hospital. Accepted into the prestigious Townsend Harris High School at Queens College, she continued to explore her options in the medical field through different programs and internships. During this time, she met Dr. Sydney Silverman. Dr. Silverman was the former prosthodontics chairman for the New York University Dental School. Dr. Lee observed and assisted Dr. Silverman on a variety of projects and soon realized her love for dentistry.
After high school, Dr. Lee was accepted into a seven-year dental program at New York University Dental School. During dental school, she continued to work with Dr. Silverman and worked as an EMT in her free time. After school, she completed one-year residency at Long Island College Hospital.
As a practicing dentist, Dr. Lee’s love of education has continued. She devotes days each month to attending dental seminars and study clubs. She has attended and completed advanced education at the Dawson Academy for TMJ and full mouth rehabilitation. She has also attended and completed an advanced esthetic dental program at the esteemed Newton Fahl Academy of Brazil.
Dr. Lee is fluent in English, Korean, and is versed in Spanish. Her passion for knowledge complements a love of travel and immersion in foreign cultures.
She has been a resident of the area for more than two decades, currently residing in the western Catskills with her husband. Her husband (and partner in life and business), Dr. Colin Johnston, is now retired from the practice. Dr. Lee doesn’t only love her husband and dentistry… she is crazy in love with her hairless cat, Karma!
