Dr. Chu completed his post-doctoral endodontic residency at the University of Washington in Seattle, where he earned his Masters of Science in Dentistry degree.

Dr. Chu was excited to return to Southern California to reunite with family and friends. Although Dr. Chu was a nationally ranked junior tennis player, he has more recently turned to a wider array of sports including basketball, rock climbing, and golf and surfing. Dr. Chu also enjoys competitive nights of board games and tackling the numerous escape rooms in the area.
