Dr. Eugenia Lee takes over Kenmore orthodontics practice

Chamber of Commerce holds ribbon cutting ceremony for Lee Orthodontics on Nov 13.

The Bothell-Kenmore Chamber of Commerce, along with community and staff members gathered to celebrate the ribbon cutting ceremony for Lee Orthodontics on Nov 13.

Lee is taking over Dr. Robert J. Bendzak’s practice, who retired in early January 2017, after 60 years. Her office is located in the Kenmore Dental Clinic building at 6503 NE 181st St.

“It’s a a little daunting but really exciting,” said Lee. “This practice was just a really family-focused practice, so it’s perfect. It’s what I was looking for. I’m definitely excited to continue to grow the practice and treat patients.”

Chamber board member, JD Davis shared a few words during the ceremony. He mentioned the building has a long history of wonderful dentistry since 1957.

“The [Bothell-Kenmore] chamber wish you absolutely a beautiful day of opening,” said Davis. “We’re [doing] a ribbon cutting here and wish this business the best from the Bothell-Kenmore Chamber of Commerce.”

Lee joined the team in August 2016, and appreciates the family-focused practice. She said they provide good care and patients love everyone there.

Lee grew up in the Mill Creek/Bothell area and graduated from Henry M. Jackson High School. She remembers having a great experience at her orthodontics when she was younger. She said the staff were great and the transformation that happened inspired her to do the same for others.
