Chronology about Dr. Calvin Lee, Botox Surgeon

I hope we make good choices – maybe somewhat strange?. I wrote this as part of the “about us” on a Botox web page:


In 1989, Dr. Calvin Lee was accepted to Harvard and Stanford Universities, but he decided to go to Brown University. Dr. Calvin Lee and Dr. Tammy Wu are graduates of Brown University Medical School in 1997. Dr. Tammy Wu graduated top of her medical school class.  They experienced expert surgery residency training at Case Western Reserve and Southern Illinois Universities.

In 2002, Dr. Calvin Lee was offered surgical jobs in San Diego and Los Angeles, but he decided to go to Modesto.  There, he worked as a General / Trauma Surgeon with the McHenry Medical Group (now called First Choice Physicians). Dr. Tammy Wu was offered a position in an international MicroSurgery fellowship, but decided to join Dr. Calvin Lee in Modesto, accepting a Plastic Surgery position with Sutter Gould. Together, they formed Surgical Artistry in 2006.

Question about Dentists and Botox

I got this Botox question today and I thought I’d share:

I have a question after reading your list of injectors in your area and out of curiosity why would a DDS need to do Botox injections?

My Botox Answer:

Hi!  GREAT question!! Some of the best injectors of Botox I know in this world are Dentists!! They know facial anatomy very well. But one of the biggest roles that Dentists play with Botox is injections for TMJ / Jaw pain. Some of the injections are outside the mouth and some of those injections can be inside the mouth. So out of the concept of doing their jobs very well, many dentists have Botox in their stock, and it’s probably convenient for them to consider injecting cosmetic Botox in addition to Botox for pain. But I think due to the cost of Botox and short acting efficacy of reconstituted Botox (meaning it doesn’t stay fresh for a long time), it probably doesn’t seem to be financially a worthwhile thing to do for Dentists (and surgeons for that matter). So most Dentists and Surgeons choose not to focus on Botox at work. I do, because it compliments my wife’s practice very well, and I’m all for supporting my wife’s plastic surgery practice. But if a dentist or surgeon wanted to inject Botox – I think they would do a very very good job, especially if they made it their primary focus at work for whatever reason. I hope this helps answer the question.
