Tuan Chau, DMD
Dr. Chau was born and raised in Los Angeles. While growing up, Dr. Chau had to deal with several dental issues that needed treatment. His bite issues caused difficulties with being unable to efficiently eat and speak. Dr. Chau underwent several years of treatment including jaw surgery in order to correct these issues. Due to the improvement in his quality of life following dental treatment, as well as his interactions with countless of compassionate healthcare individuals, his interest in dentistry grew.
Dr. Chau graduated at the top of his class at Case Western Reserve Dental School in Ohio. His goal is to improve the quality of life for his patients, whether it is to be pain free or have a confident, beautiful smile. Lastly, he wants to treat all of his patients with the same compassion and caring that he received when he was young. Dr. Chau is proficient in several areas of dentistry such as cosmetic restorations, fillings, veneers, crowns and bridges. Dr. Chau has also done additional training in order to provide more complex procedures to our patients such as root canals, surgical extractions, surgical bone and ridge augmentation, as well as the surgical placement of implants and implant restorations.
Dr. Chau is regularly involved in humanitarian programs; his most recent trip involved providing sorely needed dentistry to children and adults in underserved villages in the Dominican Republic. Outside of dentistry, Dr. Chau loves to travel, hike, and explore new places with his beautiful wife.
