“Many people have a tendency to hate or fear the dentist from their past experiences. I enjoy creating safe spaces where many people have none and providing them great dental care at the same time.”

Dr. Lauren Chan's caring and friendly contributes greatly to our practice's mission to Dr. Philip Choi, also known as Dr. Phil by his patients, is an excellent addition to our practice.

Outside of work, Dr. Choi enjoys building things, experimenting with graphic design, playing basketball, and improving his Mandarin. He hopes to be able to speak five or six languages someday! He also enjoys the people, laid back culture, excellent food, proximity to so much nature, and of course the weather that the Bay Area provides.
