People are always complimenting me about my veneers that Dr. Chu did for me. It looks amazing and I feel great! I am very appreciative of the dental work that Dr. Chu did for me. I wish I would have done it a long time ago.

Like most people, I am not one who likes going to the dentist, but it was the best experience I have ever had.

I would avoid this dentist at all cost. First, Chu charged me a bogus ?sterilization fee? at every single appointment regardless of whether any tools/instrument was used to which a sterilization procedure was required. OK, my mistake was to keep coming to him after getting an uneasy feeling about his practice. But, after doing research and finding so many endodontists that were disciplined by the Texas Board of Dentistry, who knows for what, I decided to go with this guy to have my root canal. The whole procedure requires four appointments. In the middle of all this, I caught him over charging me above what the insurance company allowed for him to charge me. Yes, this is when I should have bolted. He indicated it was a mistake, but there were overcharges (from $20-$70) for about six procedures relating to this root canal. I couldn?t figure out how this could be a mistake. My mistake number 2 (shame on me, I was too trusting) was to let him continue after discovering his ?error?. From day one, I experienced pain from the supposedly cleaned-out tooth ? to which he indicated that it was phantom pain and should go away. It never did! To seal the deal, this dentist did not sterilize (so much for the fee) the tooth, after I wore the temporary crown on for 2 weeks, to apply the permanent crown! It got my attention because I caught a whiff of the bacteria-laden tooth as he applied the permanent crown. OK, it is debatable whether this guy is utterly incompetent or he maliciously intended not to completely clear out the infected region and clean the tooth before sealing the permanent crown. I have contended all along that it was a malicious intent because he was forced to reduce his fees after I caught him overcharging me. After reading reviewer #2?s conclusion about how he?s all about money, it pretty much solidify my conclusion. He is all about money. Anyway, I had to completely repeat the tooth canal procedure with a qualified, professional dentist.

Pros: use latest imaging techniques

Cons: not professional, not qualified

Besides coming off as insincere and charging a totally bogus $20 "sterilization fee" in addition to the copay, this guy couldn't find one of my wisdom teeth with his uncomfortable, fancy digital bite wing x-ray equipment, which every old-fashioned 180 degree x-ray I've had since my early 20's has easily found. He decided I only had three. For my $20 bucks (he didn't even submit my claim to get reimbursed for the actual exam and cleaning), I got the lightest cleaning of my life, a smattering of cold River Oaks small talk and a tiny cup of listerine. Not even a free toothbrush! What's this world coming to?

UPDATE: I've since been to a competent, honest dentist, who informed me I had four wisdom teeth and two cavities (not ELEVEN as Chu informed). My new dentist gave me a thorough cleaning and a free toothbrush-- and no hidden sterilization fees!

Chu is a money-hungry gollum. If money and honesty aren't things you value and you happen to enjoy hearing about your dentist's golf game and his mother's sensual Virgo nature while he's carelessly tapping and picking at your teeth, Chu's your man.
