Lee Fura, DMD
Dr. Lee Fura grew up and currently resides in Reading, PA. Throughout his years of schooling, he always enjoyed his science classes and knew he wanted to work with his hands someday, so dentistry was a natural fit for him. It is greatly satisfying for Dr. Fura to use the skills and knowledge he’s obtained over the years to transform someone’s smile and restore their oral health. He wants his patients to have the best possible experience at the dentist, so he offers oral and nitrous oxide sedation to help get rid of jitters. He also tries to make his injections as painless as possible.
Dr. Fura is grateful to be working Silverman Dental Associates because of the laid-back atmosphere and patient-centered focus. Patients can expect him to be honest and up front with any treatment recommendations and will not be pressured into any unnecessary procedures. Dr. Fura strives to make his dental work exceptional and will spend extra time with patients to make sure their crowns, fillings, and other treatments are done correctly.
