Dr. Lee and his staff are wonderful! If you're in the market for a new dentist this is a great place to start. Big plus for opening up on Saturday, for those who can't take an extra time off it's nice option. Dr. Lee is patient and professional while he works on your teeth. Another big plus, each time I do a cleaning they gift a little goody bag. It's like a present for getting your teeth clean. Who doesn't like that? Operational Experience: I had to get two fillings done. Dr. Lee was able to make the experience as comfortable as possible, even though I had to get a needle in stuck in my gums.
Dr. Lee is literally the best! I've been to many many dentists throughout my life and he's by far my favorite! Every time I come in I feel like I'm coming in to visit my uncle or something! I got my wisdom teeth pulled out earlier this year and I swear, I didn't feel a thing!!!! No anesthetic was used so I was awake the whole time and there was no pain whatsoever. On top of that I experienced no swelling in my cheeks like those stories you hear about getting your wisdom teeth pulled out lol. (But everyone is different so maybe I was just lucky that I didn't have any swelling). About 2 weeks after getting my wisdom teeth pulled out I had a filling as well & if you're anything like me and have had a lot of fillings in your lifetime than you know that they can be so scary and painful but the fear ends here! There was so pain whatsoever when I got my fillings and I was so relieved. He's really a miracle dentist!
I have been going to Dr. Allen so many years. He and his staffs are so friendly. Dr. Allen did an amazing job for one of my tooth implanted last year. I highly recommend if you are looking for a professional dentist for all dental works.
I have been going to Dr. Lee for years! He is professional and friendly. He is also very thorough and patient. You can just tell he truely cares about his patients and loves what he does. I have a lot of dental work to do and he map out a plan for me. He explains to me what the whole procedure is and why I need it. And after the procedure he would go through pictures and X-rays he took during the process and walk me through step by step what he did for me that day. If you are looking for a dentist, make an appointment to see Dr. Allen, you won't regret it!
Doctor Lee is our family dentist since I was move into the Bay Area. He is very professional and careful. He is always explain the details of his procedures and why he doing that. Plus, he will inform you how he is going to charge me and to bill to the insurance. Very easy to understand and thoughtful to his patients. Thanks for all his helps for years!
I first came here back in 2008 to get my wisdom teeth pulled. Dr Lee did an Amazing job didn't feel anything during the procedure or after. I'm back in the area and came back to Dr Lee for a cleaning. Him and his staff are really great. I will continue coming here as everything is great for me (location,parking,hours)
I have been going to Allen for years. The best dentist, both on latest equipment and techniques, as well as just sheer comfort and personality. Works with you as well to reschedule appointments as well.
My family and I have been coming here for years! The staff and Dr. Lee are great! I have switched insurances a couple times and always signed up with him. I even had to pay a bit more to come here at one point, but it was worth it. I really trust Dr. Lee, he has taken excellent care of us. I have had many dentist in the past that I dreaded going to, and they always recommended unnecessary work and charged up my insurance. Since I've been with Dr. Lee, I have had less and less dental work and now just come in for my regular cleanings, and BTW he's great with kids!
Dr. Lee and his staff are magnificent! They treat me so well. They know me by my name and I've only been there a few times. The front desk woman is super courteous. The technicians are super professional and kind. Dr. Lee himself is such an amazing doctor and I can't say enough good things. He included me in on the process every time from my teeth cleaning to getting my cavities filled and lastly having my wisdom teeth pulled. He kept me in the loop, so there were no surprises, and he educated me on exactly what was going on. He has such a calm and soothing demeanor I do not fear him as I usually fear dentists. I had my bottom wisdom teeth extracted by him, and I'm not kidding you, I felt more pain emotionally from trauma I had with other dentists, getting flash backs, then any actual pain in my mouth. I didn't even hear the crunching noise with the tools against my teeth during the extraction that I've experienced with other dentists. Im so happy with coming to Dr. Lee!!!!
My mother-in-law had one of her molar teeth pulled our by Dr Lee. She said Dr Lee skill was so good it didn't hurt much. Very friendly, helpful, and professional. Highly recommended.

My daughter and I have been seeing Dr.Lee for two years now (maybe more). He is thorough, his office is extremely clean, and his technology is up to date! I don't mind my dentist visits and my daughter really enjoys going to his office. Each room is equipped with a flat screen where he can either show you your teeth and explain his process or you can switch it to Food Network and watch Paula Dean (lol). I've recommended friends and family to him and they've also had great experiences. He doesn't look for extra things to drill or fix or seal....oh and he is very calming. Thank you Dr. Lee!
Several years ago I decided to find a dentist who would extract a tooth or perform a root canal, etc, instead of referring me to an expensive oral surgeon. It took some searching but I did find a great dentist in San Mateo. Bay Star Dental is actually Dr. Allen Lee; it is not a dental group or a business corporation. When I met Allen, at my first appointment, he shook my hand and said, "Hi, "I'm Allen Lee." No title, no power trip, no sales pitch, no 2 year plan-I was charmed. Allen is a true human being and a total professional who'll take care of all your dental needs-he even implants teeth. He's young (not too young but not going to retire any time soon and leave all alone) and he's smart, continuing to earn advanced degrees. His equipment is state-of-the-art but he doesn't have an army of assistants, which keeps costs down. His prices for dental work are very competitive and, for oral surgery, they're ridiculously low. I recommend him without qualification
I was referral by Dr. Allen Lee's friend. However, I still have to say that I was pretty skeptical about the dental services because they usually over charged you or to your insurance. Also, I have never had a good dentist I really wanted to stick with in the past. This dental office was surprisingly over my expectation, or, maybe, I didn't expect too much to begin with. haha.... nonetheless, I was satisfied with the visit. I was actually going to be 1/2hr late due to a meeting at work and tried to call to see if I could push the appointment just a bit later. The assistant was very nice to put me on hold to ask if Dr. Lee would still take me in after my arrival. Thanks for their consideration so that I didn't have to drive up to San Mateo again from San Jose. They squeezed me in and I only waited extra 15 min. This place is nice and cozy. Both assistants are bilingual(English, Chinese, and Japanese) which is good for me because I am a FOB(for those who doesn't know, FOB=fresh off the boat.) ^^ My main purpose of this trip is for an exam and teeth cleaning. After all that, Dr. not only explained and discussed in detail with me on how I should take care of my teeth but also patiently listened to my questions and gave out the suggestions which were very efficient but not pushy at all. Couple of my cracked teeth were filled fast without a pain. Afterward, they recapped how they will bill me. THEY DID WHAT THEY PROMISED!!! 4.5 stars is my given after the checkup. Another 0.5 star is from the surprise given before the checkup and the extra service of a cup of nice brewed coffee to calm me down after a dental visit. I know I know, I put a bit of sentiment in this review. You know, these lil things did make you feel a bit of VIP here. Over all, it's a pleasant visit. San Mateo is a bit far for me. However, I'd rather find a trust-worthy dentist to take care of my teeth and do the right billings. I would definitely visit here again for my future "fix-up"!!
