“Dentistry is the perfect balance of art and science. I love that it allows me to help people change and improve their smile, all while benefiting their oral health.” 


Dr. Philip Choi


Dr. Philip Choi, also known as Dr. Phil by his patients, is an excellent addition to our practice. His treatment planning style and training are consistent with that of our current doctors, providing our patients with consistency of care. In addition to our in-house specialists, Dr. Phil can help manage a variety of oral health issues for patients of all ages.


Dr. Phil grew up in San Mateo, California, attending the College of San Mateo and UC Davis for his undergraduate degree. Like many of our doctors, he attended the University of the Pacific from 2014 to 2017, where he earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery.


In addition to his formal education, Dr. Phil has attended continuing education in the fields of CAD-CAM technology.

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.

 "Each time I come to the South San Francisco Dental Care at Kelvin Choi's office, I find myself at peace knowing that the office and the equipment is clean and free of germs. I appreciate that they take special care in keeping the facilities and equipment to keep their staff and the patients safe from Covid 19. My Hygenist is efficient and thoughtful in doing my cleaning and she does an excellent job. (Lailani). Also, the office staff, (Della) and many others are efficient and business like and thoughtful towards the patients. My experience with them each time has been a good one. They make sure you know what they are going to do, and let you know exactly how much you owe. Thank Kelvin Choi and Staff!"

"This dental office is the best. They make you feel welcome as soon as you come in. They do not rush you like your just a number. They take the time explaining things to you. They have all services there which is great so there’s no miscommunication. So if you just need a standard cleaning, root canal or broken tooth it’s all done here. PLUS ONCE A YEAR THEY VOLUNTEER FREE DENTAL SERVICES. And even give out gift bags of supplies. Thank you to all the staff."
