H. Jonathan Lee, D.M.D.
Your Rancho Peñasquitos & Poway, CA Dentist
I love dentistry because I am able to serve people by meeting their oral healthcare needs, and in the process I am able build relationships with them. I can restore or create a beautiful smile, and alleviate discomfort and pain. I am able to change the lives of my patients for the better. It is a gift to be a dentist and to be able to do the things I do each day. From my staff to my patients, their lives challenge me to grow as a person and to give back to my community.
Being a dentist means I am able to heal people and to make their lives fuller, richer, and easier. Having dental problems or dental anxiety are traumatic for patients, and I strive to make sure that those I care for understand I am here to listen, reassure, and help. I do not judge, I only see the person before me and how I can assist that person toward the goal of great oral health and wonderful, beautiful, individual smiles.

Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry and Cell Biology – University of California, San Diego
Doctorate of Dental Medicine – Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine
Continuing education offerings are a great way to stay aware of the changes in my profession and to educate myself further in treatment procedures, technologies, and processes. Only by doing so am I able to ensure that my patients are receiving the best treatment options possible, and I am able to answer my patients’ questions with depth, clarity, and accuracy. I am active in the San Diego CEREC® Study Club and the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry.
I am a native of Seoul, South Korea, but have spent much of my life in America. My wife and our two daughters now call San Diego our home and we love it here! My top priority, when I’m not caring for my patients, is being with my family. Other passions include eating, and all sports. Top three have to be basketball, football, and golf.
Giving back and being active in my community is a key part of who I am. I’m proud to support our local YMCA, as well as Little League and softball teams. As a Rancho Peñasquitos Town Council Partner, I am invested in seeing our community flourish.
