Meet Dr. Emily Chou

I love going to work everyday to get to know all the people I see as we embark on a smile journey together. 

I was born in Taiwan and grew up in the Bay Area in sunny California. My parents provided my siblings and I the opportunities they never had. They taught me to work hard, strive for excellence, and never forget those who’ve helped me along the way. 

After high school, I went onto pursue higher education at UCLA and the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. Upon graduation of dental school, I was inducted into the prestigious honorary dental society, OKU. After dental school graduation, I completed a general practice residency with the Veteran Affairs at Mare Island, California. After which I worked for a year in general dentistry. I then returned to Pittsburgh to study for my orthodontic certificate and master of dental science degree at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. I am also board certified with the American Board of Orthodontics.

My husband and I met during dental school. He is the greatest supporter and best friend in my life. We currently have a scaredy cat, Max, but we hope to expand our family with children and a dog in the near future. During our free time, we enjoy cooking, spending time with friends and family, and being outdoors.
