Veronica Yu, DDS
Dr. Yu earned her BA in History from Brown University in 2009 and then went on to achieve her Doctor of Dental Surgery from Columbia University in 2017. She was one of six senior students selected to participate in the Comprehensive Implantology Continuum during this time, where she learned a lot about the treatment planning, restoration, and placement of implants. She also completed a General Practice Residency at North Shore Long Island Jewish Hospital, receiving further training in a wide variety of dental specialties including endodontics, pediatrics, oral surgery, prosthodontics, and the management of medical and dental emergencies. She became a Certified Invisalign Provider in 2016.
Dr. Yu has been working in dentistry for five years and counting. Her favorite part of this job by far is getting to know her patients so well and being able to help them feel healthier and happier about their teeth.
Dr. Yu is from Madison, CT, and her father is a gastroenterologist who currently practices in Portland. The love and compassion she saw him share with his patients from a young age inspired her to join the healthcare profession as well! Her mother teaches Mandarin Chinese and she has an older sibling, Chris. The last member of her family is a Bichon Poodle mix named Frodo. Outside of the dental world, she played tennis competitively in high school and has gotten to meet and speak with three out of the four “Big Four” in men’s professional tennis: Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, and her idol Roger Federer. She hopes to meet the fourth (Rafael Nadal) some day! She also enjoys watching films and music, being an avid singer, live performer, and skilled musician at the violin and guitar.
