Tim Yu, DDS, MSD



Orthodontics is about more than straightening teeth. We can promote overall health by correcting the structure and function of your airway. I will take a comprehensive approach to your treatment to ensure your new, beautiful smile will remain for life!


I am an avid reader of books related to the main pillars of health: nutrition, exercise, and sleep. My favorite movies are Good Will Hunting and The Princess Bride. My favorite TV shows are The Office and Game of Thrones.

Volunteer/Service Experience

Give Kids A Smile, Global Dental Brigades in Nicaragua and Honduras


I was blessed to be born and raised in Southern California. My fascination with the mysteries of the human body led me toward a career in healthcare and eventually to my current passion, orthodontics. Aside from my day job, I enjoy staying active, listening to audiobooks, and discovering local restaurants.
