Dr. David Yu found his calling in an unexpected place: Haiti. On a mission trip during his undergraduate years of college, Dr. Yu saw how badly the Haitian people needed dental care, and, right then and there, he decided he would do something about it. He ended up going to dental school at the University of North Carolina alongside Dr. Michael Rhyne, who now practices with him at Dental Center of Charlotte. The two dentists provide an extensive list of dental services that include cosmetic, preventative, and restorative procedures, and Dr. Yu stays true to his original altruistic mission by volunteering for groups in Charlotte. To aid them in their services, the staff at Dental Center of Charlotte wields such high-tech devices as an intraoral camera and digital x-rays, which emit 80% less radiation than traditional x-rays and 100% fewer hexes than a mysterious fortuneteller. They also mill crowns quickly on site and offer sedation dentistry for those with fears of the dentist.
