Dr Keating is married with three children and in his life outside of dentistry, his simple joy is sharing time with his family.
Dr Elmer Lee
Dr Elmer Lee graduated from the University of Western Australia’s Dental School and was one of the stand-outs of the class of 2011. He was born in Chicago, Illinois and spent some of his younger years in New Zealand and Taiwan before completing his high school and tertiary education here in Perth. He speaks both Mandarin and English fluently.
Dr Lee chose Kalgoorlie as his first place of practice. Due to the significant lack of dental care in rural areas, he was exposed to more difficult cases and able to rapidly expand his skillset. Following this invaluable start to his career, Dr Lee returned to Perth in search of an exceptional practice to continue his professional growth and happily joined Kings Dental in 2015.
During his time at Kings Dental, Dr Lee has continued to pursue his studies and continuing professional development. His areas of post graduate training include Digital Smile Design, implant dentistry, Invisalign and neuromuscular modulators to name a few. He is passionate about dentistry and conducts his work with comfort, precision, quality and artistry.
Outside of dentistry, Dr Lee loves his yearly snowboarding trip to Japan and hopes there will be opportunities to carve up some powder in other countries in the future. Additionally, he enjoys playing ultimate frisbee, basketball and golf. He has a talent for travel photography and you can see some of his work displayed in the practice!
