Patients are the most important people at Tim Choy, DMD! We like to think of ourselves as the "Nordstrom of Dentistry" because our team enjoys getting to know our patients and providing them with the exceptional service and care they want for their own family members.
We'll spend time getting to know you when you visit our Redwood City dental office, and you can take some time to learn about us here first so you'll feel right at home when you arrive. We know you will love the one-on-one attention and personalized service you receive when you visit us, and we can't wait to hear from you!
Dr. Tim Choy
Kind, caring, and ever the perfectionist, Dr. Tim Choy, DMD has been happily helping Bay Area patients reach their dental goals since 2001. A proud native of Austin, Texas, he now calls the Peninsula his home.
Dr. Choy received his B.A. in Human Biodynamics from UC-Berkeley in 1996 and went on to attend Temple University, where he received his Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 2001. He first realized his passion for dentistry while working as a volunteer at the Berkeley Free Clinic. This clinic was built on donations to allow disadvantaged people access to health care. What Dr. Choy enjoys the most about dentistry is the unique ability to make a positive change in a person’s overall health and quality of life!
He enjoys fishing, golfing, watching his son play soccer, and playing nerdy board games during his free time.
Dr. Choy is a member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, and the San Mateo County Dental Association.
