Meet the Staff:
Dr. Joseph Chuy is a graduate of the University of California San Francisco School of Dentistry. He also earned bachelor degrees in Biology from UC Irvine, and in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Cal Poly Pomona.
He has dedicated hundreds of hours of post dental school training to focus in the areas of cosmetic and implant dentistry. For him “it’s a privilege being able to improve someone's smile and totally change their outlook in life. It’s a great day at the office when the patient has a newfound smile.”
He is certified in Invisalign and, as a general dentist, he also offers services in root canals, crowns and bridges, extractions, dentures, among others.
Dr. Chuy takes pride in providing his patients with a comfortable dental experience. His philosophy is: “treat your patients the way you want to be treated. Be friendly, respectful, and provide the best service possible.” He is constantly refining his “low-stress” injection techniques. He feels it’s a lost art that his patients definitely appreciate.
Aside from dentistry, he enjoys traveling, hiking, tinkering with electronics, and what he terms “experimental cooking.” He also speaks Spanish and Chinese Cantonese.
