Meet Melissa Chui, DDS
Dr. Melissa Chui grew up in Vancouver, then moved to Montreal to attend McGill University. After obtaining a Bachelor of Science Degree in Anatomy and Cell Biology, she spent a year travelling the world before entering dentistry at UBC. Graduating in 2001, she received the American Academy of Prosthodontists Undergraduate Achievement Award and the UBC Dentistry Alumni Association Award for the greatest contribution to the graduating class. Eager to pursue more training, Dr. Melissa went on to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and completed a two year Advanced Education in General Dentistry Certificate. During that time, she gained more experience in esthetic dentistry, worked on laboratory and clinic research for the CEREC system, and taught in the undergraduate dentistry clinics.
Dr. Melissa believes a big part of a dentist’s job is to educate patients about their dental health so that they can make well-informed decisions. She will take the time to explain everything from the anatomy of a tooth to the details of a dental procedure.
Outside the office, Dr. Melissa stays busy with her husband and two young daughters. She can be found going for a run, a bike ride, playing in the park, or volunteering at various school events. Having worked all around the lower mainland, Dr. Melissa was excited to join West Richmond Dental Centre and work close to home!
