Rasoul Arbabi, DDS, MS.
General Dentist and Prosthodontist
Dr. Arbabi comes from a family of doctors. In fact, there are nine doctors in his family. After graduating college, he was inspired by his brother and decided to attend dental school.

Dr. Arbabi chose to be a dentist after realizing he could express himself through prosthodontic work. While he is able to express himself, his favorite part is being able to restore the patients’ confidence. He likes to give back their beauty, oral health, and functionality through implants, crowns, and dentures. Patient satisfaction is very important, and he enjoys seeing patients come back with their improved smiles.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Arbabi enjoys volleyball and cooking. His favorite food to cook is Persian food. He enjoys the welcoming people of El Paso and the weather. He says El Paso is similar to his hometown and prevents him from becoming homesick.

Minyoung Lee, DDS.
Dr. Lee attended college in Korea and the United States. She received a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience from University of Southern California. She then attended dental school where she received her D.D.S. from USC School of Dentistry.
While participating in medical missions, she realized how limited the care was. This sparked her interest in dentistry because she would be able to provide so much more care with only a few tools. She says dentistry is mobile and allows a dentist to work anywhere. Her favorite part of dentistry is healing patients’ pain, but her passion is connecting with people. She believes in patient education. It is important to her to make sure she understands the patient’s concerns while the patient understands what is going on with their oral health.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Lee enjoys classical music, Costco pizza, being active within her church, and participating in a study club. A fun fact about Dr. Lee is that she isn’t afraid of deep water, but she is afraid of heights. Her favorite things about El Paso are the people, weather, scenery, and seeing the lights in Juarez. She likes being close to Mexico because it provides opportunities to do medical mission work.
Dr. Lee is a member of ADA (American Dental Association) and El Paso District Dental Society.
