Meet Your South Hadley, MA Dentist
Dr. Eric Chu
We are extremely excited to have Dr. Eric Chu as an associate dentist here at Newton Street Dental. After receiving a bachelor’s degree in molecular and cellular biology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, he attended the Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. Currently, he is pursuing his master’s degree in medical science at the Harvard Medical School, focusing on clinical bioethics in the context of patient and practice management.
Dr. Chu has had a passion for helping people for as long as he can remember, which is evident to every patient as soon as they meet him thanks to his enthusiasm. His drive to provide the highest-quality dental care has led him to take numerous continuing education courses over the years, helping him to become Invisalign certified and gain abundant experience in CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/manufacturing) dentistry. He also remains active in the local and national dental community as a member of the American Dental Association and Massachusetts Dental Society.
Originally from Seoul, South Korea, he moved to the U.S. at a young age in order to continue his education. He is fluent in both Korean and English and has a cross-cultural competency that enables him to faithfully serve our diverse variety of patients. He is recently married and enjoys spending his free time with his family and seeking out good food. An avid soccer fan, he’s always eager to talk about the sport and can give you an answer to any question you might have!
