About Dr. Eddie Kuo
Beyond understanding my professional qualifications, it is important to me that you know why I chose to be a dental health care provider—and consequently why I am passionate about your dental health. When I think back about the best moments in my life—my first date, a surprise birthday party, a big sporting event, my wedding day, etc., they are all connected by a common theme…FOOD! In my life, every significant event has revolved around great food and celebrating with food, a concept that has been ingrained in me since my childhood in Taiwan. Whenever my family gets together, the first question that anyone asks is, “have you eaten?!” Meals for my family can be epic events that can take a full day of preparation and cooking, but ultimately provide us with ample time to laugh and share important moments together. While every family and culture has their own traditions around food, meals are ultimately a universal expression of community and friendship shared by all, which is why food and the ability to enjoy food is very important to me.
That is where Dentistry comes in. I realize that if your teeth are not working harmoniously, they can interfere with your ability to chew and prevent you from fully savoring food in all of its wonderful flavors and textures. Since so much enjoyment stems from coming together around food, it is my goal to ensure that your teeth are in optimal health so that food will always be an enjoyable experience.
To that end, I invite you to come in and see us so that I can meet you and learn how I can best care for your dental health. Hopefully, I can give you some food for thought and information about teeth for you to chew on!
