Huayang John Wu, DDS, MS
Dr. Wu’s clinical interest is conservative care with focus on the prevention. He
also had advanced training to help patients with various needs, among the most popular
ones are: Invisalign to straighten teeth without braces, Lumineers to beautify smiles
with no or minimal grinding, and Nobel BioCare dental implants to support stronger
Dr. Wu is not only dedicated to patient care but also to clinical research. His research
interests include scarless wound healing and cancer therapies. He has had numerous
articles published and/or presented nationally and internationally since 1996.
When he is not working, Dr. Wu enjoys spending time with his family, travelling,
hiking, or cooking.
