Personal

“In college, I was originally a technical theatre major because I really enjoyed the planning aspect of putting together a production with a team and working with my hands. However, I had also always been fascinated with science courses because they were extremely interesting. I was drawn to the dental profession because it is a wonderful combination of art and science!

It is an honor to work with my father, for whom I have so much personal and professional respect. I’ve learned a lot from him, most notably the benefits of friendly, one-on-one care that makes you feel like an important part of our family.”

When she isn’t at the office creating beautiful smiles, Dr. Katie likes spending time with her husband and their son, Mikey, and daughter, Bre. Dr. Katie’s hobbies include reading, traveling, and exercising; she is also a big fan of the Chicago Cubs.

Personal

“My grandfather was a dentist and my father was an orthodontist, and this greatly influenced my decision to follow in their footsteps. During my teen years, I often helped out at my father’s office and really enjoyed it. Since starting my professional careers as a full-time university teacher and clinical scientist, I have always emphasized the importance of advanced evidence-based treatment. Today our office team offers our patients over 30 years of clinical experience along with the most innovative orthodontic solutions. It is especially rewarding to practice with my daughter Katie—a fourth generation in dentistry treating four generations of Graber orthodontic patients! She and Kelley keep us focused on the latest treatment alternatives.

I never forget that orthodontic treatment is almost always new to patients. I take the time to explain their recommended treatment and what to expect so they are fully informed about their care. Finally, everyone at Graber Orthodontics treats our patients just like family with focused, unhurried care, a gentle touch and the utmost friendliness.”

In his free time, Dr. Lee enjoys being with his family, reading, traveling and windsurfing.
