It's difficult to say what excites Johnston C. Chu, DDS more: interacting with his patients or maintaining and restoring their teeth. He decided to go into dentistry because it allows him to help others, and he's always had a profound interest in teeth and oral health.
Dr. Chu's sincere concern for his patients' comfort and well-being is evident in both types of services he offers and in his office's warm, welcoming ambiance. He has taken numerous continuing-education courses to stay ahead of the latest patient-centered techniques—including sedation dentistry, drill-less procedures, and aesthetic laser surgery—and specializes in safely removing old mercury fillings.
The reception area looks more like a family room than a dentist's office, although his one-patient-at-a-time philosophy means that guests rarely wait there for very long. Beige gingham armchairs and floral-themed artwork invite adults to relax with a cup of coffee or tea, and kids can play with educational games, puzzles, or daydream about blinding the school bully with a flash of their newly polished pearly whites.
