Dr Chee Chang trained at the University of Otago (NZ) graduating in 1999. He then joined Wellington Hospital In the capital city of Wellington, New Zealand and worked as a dental house surgeon where he further developed his skills in oral surgery and management of complex medically compromised patients. Following this, he relocated to Auckland, New Zealand and commenced work in private practice.

He decided after a few years of working in New Zealand that he wanted to see a bit more of the world, and experience dentistry in another country. Towards the end of 2002, he relocated to the United Kingdom, and worked in a private general practice in Somerset, and then later in London. During this time, he completed a postgraduate diploma from the Royal College of Surgeons (UK), in advanced general dentistry. It was this exposure to advanced dentistry that prompted Chee to return to New Zealand to complete his specialist training at the University of Otago, which he did in 2009. During this time, Chee completed his research thesis on dental ceramics, and has published his work in an international journal, The Journal of Prosthodontics.

Since completing his specialist training, Chee has worked mainly in private specialist practice, but also has been involved with teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students at the University of Sydney and Melbourne University. He has also lectured extensively to other dentists and dental specialists on all aspects related to prosthodontics and implant dentistry. He has presented his research at multiple international conferences, and is an invited speaker and key opinion leader for a number of dental associations and dental companies.

Chee is a member of multiple dental associations and academies, including the Australian Dental Association, the Academy of Australian and New Zealand Prosthodontists, the New Zealand Association of Prosthodontists and Restorative Dentists, the Australian Prosthodontic Society, and the International Team for Implanvology (ITI). At present, Chee serves as the President of the Australian Prosthodontic Society (VIC), and also serves on committees for the Australian Dental Association and the Academy of Australian and New Zealand Prosthodontists.

He has a number of interests in dentistry and prosthodontics, particularly in dental implants and the application of modern dental biomaterials in the aesthetic rehabilitation of patients. Outside of dentistry, Chee continues to enjoy travelling, and is also a fan of basketball and music. Aside from his dental qualifications, Chee also has a Diploma in Audio Engineering, and still enjoys DJing from time to time!
