He is also trained in the newest implant techniques.

Upon graduation, Dr. Xu joined the United States Army Dental Corps, serving at Fort Lewis, Washington, from 1991 to 1995.

He presented numerous table clinics on porcelain veneers and composite bonding at local dental society meetings and the Northwest Dental Conference.

Dr. Xu’s passion for providing optimal dental care along with his love for the Pacific Northwest led him to enter private practice in Tacoma, Washington in 1995. Since then he has taken numerous dental courses including those with a focus on biological dentistry and mercury-free fillings. Our office has not used mercury “silver” fillings since 1985. Dr. Xu whole-heartedly believes that your oral health has great impact on your general health.
