Dr. Christine Chu
by Kyle Patton, associate editor

Dentists spend most of their working hours in their practices, so they usually
don't get many opportunities to see what it's like inside another doctor's office.
Dentaltown's recurring Office Visit profile offers a chance for Townies to meet
their peers, hear their stories and get a sense of their practice protocols.
In this issue, we introduce Dr. Christine Chu, a talented pediatric dentist who,
along with her orthodontist husband, Dr. Howard Chu, opened a scratch practice
five minutes outside Los Angeles.
Read on and get an exclusive look at how this second-generation dentist went
from working alongside her parents to opening a thriving multispecialty office
from the ground up in one of the most competitive areas in the country-and an
area hard hit by the pandemic.
