Dr. Lee Ann Brady is passionate about dentistry, her family and making a difference. She is a general dentist and owns a practice in Glendale, AZ limited to restorative dentistry. Lee sees patients between 12-14 days a month with the help of her five-person team.
When not in the office she is either teaching in dentistry or with her family. Lee and her husband Kelly have been married for over 20 years and have 3 children. Oldest daughter Sarah runs her own freelance writing business and is working on her first novel. Jenna is a senior at ASU pursuing a degree in Russian. Kyle is a freshman at Arizona State University, Barrett Honors college, and an avid musician.
Lee’s passion for dental education began as a CE junkie herself, pursuing lots of advanced continuing education focused on Restorative and Occlusion. In 2005, she became a full time resident faculty member for The Pankey Institute, and was promoted to Clinical Director in 2006.
Lee joined Spear Education as Executive VP of Education in the fall of 2008 to teach and coordinate the educational curriculum. In June of 2011, she left Spear Education, founded leeannbrady.com and joined the dental practice she now owns as an associate.
Lee saw practicing dentistry and owning a practice as a key ingredient to being relevant as an educator. Today, she teaches at dental meetings and study clubs both nationally and internationally, continues to write for dental journals and her website, sits on the editorial board of the Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry, Inside Dentistry and DentalTown Magazines and is the Director of Education for The Pankey Institute.
The two most common questions she gets asked are “Do you sleep?” and “What do you do for fun?” The simple answers are “yes” and “teeth.” Lee is happiest when she is in action, and especially when working toward a new goal or creating something new. Dentistry is both her vocation and avocation, so it is her fun and second only to her love for her family.
