  • Jenny Tu
    Pediatric Dentist

    Hello and welcome to our office website!  My name is Dr. Jenny Tu and I am excited to start this dental health journey with you and your child. I am a board certified pediatric dentist.  Children needless to say is my passion!  I love kids!  I am so priviledged to be in a field where I get to work with children all day long. I was born and raised in New York and made my way down to the Tar Heel state where I am happy to call our new home.  I graduated from Columbia University School of Dental Medicine in 2000 and completed my pediatric dental residency at NY Presbyterian Hospital in 2003.
