Our Mission

It is our mission to exceed your expectations by providing a warm, comforting and exceptional dental experience for you. It all starts with our staff taking the time to listen to your concerns and getting to know you.

Our friendly and caring staff are prepared to help you in any way we can, from coordinating your appointments to filing insurance claims for you. Conveniently located at The Shops at La Cantera, you can relax and enjoy your day by doing some shopping or grabbing a bite to eat when you come to your appointment. Dental care has never felt so relaxing. Welcome to your one-stop shop!

If you need a little extra help to feel comfortable during your treatment, we have created a full range of comfort options just for you. We offer everything you might need from laughing gas to general anesthesia.  Due to a negative dental experience as a child, Dr. Chu and his staff make sure you have a joyous and positive dental experience.
