Meet Dr. Nicole Chung

Dr. Nicole Chung is a native of southern California. She and her husband, Bret, have a two year old daughter, Ella. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Human Biology from the University of California San Diego. During her time at UCSD, she volunteered at a local community dental clinic which piqued her interest in dentistry. It was through this experience that she realized the impact dentists make in the community and strives to follow in these footsteps. She went on to receive her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health in Mesa, AZ. As a dentist, Dr. Chung completed a general practice residency at the University of California Los Angeles, where she received advanced training in hospital dentistry. Following this residency, she completed her advanced education to become an endodontist at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Lincoln, NE.
 
Dr. Chung is committed to participating in community service activities and enjoys being involved in organized dentistry. She has volunteered to serve those in need at events such as Mission of Mercy, Love OKC, Give Kids a Smile, and international humanitarian mission trips. Dr. Chung is a Spears study club member, has previously served as a board member of the Oklahoma County Dental Society, and has completed the Oklahoma Dental Association Leadership Academy. As a result of these activities, she has been a past recipient of the UCSD Dan Kerschner Award, the ASDOH AAPHD Dental Student Recognition Award, the ASDOH Tami Hunger Community Health Award, and the AAE/DENTSPLY Resident Award.

Dr. Chung recently moved from Oklahoma to live closer to her family and is excited to call San Luis Obispo home! In her free time, Dr. Chung enjoys hiking, traveling, and spending time with her family and dog, Bella.
