Dr. Derrick Chua
As a member of the American Dental Association,
California Dental Association, and San Mateo Dental Society, I join
other dentists to secure quality care for generations. Participation in
these groups, allow me to fulfill my commitment to continuing education
and improve my clinical skills aiding my constant evolvement as a
dentist. I regularly attend meetings of the Bay Area Aesthetic Masters
and annual meetings of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry to
improve my skills and be able to offer my patients the best practices
for improving their smile. My goal of excelling as a dentist has
required me to train with leading experts in dentist-patient
relationships, cosmetic dentistry, implants and advanced endodontics.
Working with my mother and sister in our family practice has been also
proven very fulfilling. I spend countless hours perfecting the art of
dentistry and I strive to learn on a daily basis and be the best I can
be in my personal life and for my patients.
My wife and child bring further balance to my life. Both
my wife and I are avid tennis players. I also enjoy snow skiing and
golf. The paramount purpose in my life is being a “great dad.”
