Born in Malaysia, Dr. Jeremy Chung immigrated to Canada with his parents and brother in 1982. Raised in the Killarney area of southeast Vancouver, he went to UBC to attain his Bachelor's of Science in Biochemistry in 1996 and proceeded to dental school where he graduated from the University of Manitoba in 2001. He promptly returned to the lower mainland and practiced in Burnaby for 6 years followed by 3 years in North Vancouver. Dr. Chung is proud to be returning to Burnaby where he has set up his own dental practice with the aim to provide the highest quality of care with a personal touch.
Dr. Chung believes in providing comprehensive patient-centered care where options are given to patients so that they can make the most informed decision on their own dental health. His goal is to provide smiles that last a lifetime and having long lasting friendships with his patients.
Dr. Chung has enjoyed practicing general dentistry these past 10 years. Whether he's placing composite (mercury-free) fillings, performing root canals, or difficult surgical extractions, you can be sure that he has taken the utmost care in providing the best that he has to offer. For very anxious patients, he also offers training in conscious sedation where oral sedatives and/or nitrous oxide can be administered to further alleviate any anxiety that may arise.
When he is not in the office, Dr. Chung enjoys spending time with friends and family. He currently resides in downtown Vancouver. He can be frequently seen walking around the False Creek seawall and recently has enjoyed learning how to ski. His other pastimes include watching movies, going to Canucks games, and learning about computers and new technologies.
