Claire Cho, DDS: A Top Dentist in Aliso Viejo & Orange County
Dr. Claire Cho graduated top of her class from the University of Southern California, School of Dentistry in 1989, and has since remained at the forefront of the dental profession. She is passionate about gaining new knowledge and applying the most advanced techniques and procedures to her practice. In her efforts to provide the best available care to her patients, Dr. Cho travels near and far to attend numerous continuing education courses each year.
Dr. Cho has attended a wide spectrum of programs throughout the years, becoming one of a select few doctors able to provide the quality of care that surpasses the gold standard. She completed her residency through Nobel Biocare and attends study groups with her peers that keep her up to date in the latest implantology techniques. She completed her surgical and prosthetic programs at the Misch Implant Institute. She was awarded fellow status by the International Congress of Oral Implantologists in 2011. In 2007, a series of courses on soft tissue grafting certified Dr. Cho to perform oral plastic surgery and has allowed her to help many patients with exposed roots and defects in gum tissue regain comfort and confidence in their smile. Several neuromuscular occlusion courses from Las Vegas Institute have given her the tools to help patients with neuromuscular problems. A 2009 course taken in Spain on bone and tissue regeneration enables Dr. Cho to improve implant integration, reduce healing time, and improve bone regeneration in oral surgery procedures by deriving platelet rich growth factors from patient’s own blood.
Dr. Cho is one of few dentists in Orange County who offers LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure), which is the first and only FDA approved laser gum disease treatment that is a “no-cut, no-sew” alternative to the traditional painful, scalpel and suture, gum surgery. She has been using this procedure to treat her patients with periodontal disease since being certified in 2008.
Combining the science of dentistry with an artistic eye, Dr. Cho has transformed the smiles and lives of each patient who has been treated by her hands. Meticulous attention to detail in even the simplest procedures ensures that every treatment combines the best of dental science well as the most aesthetically pleasing result. Her patients enjoy a wealth of knowledge and a passion to provide the best in a doctor who truly loves her profession. Those who have experienced it will attest – it is truly one of a kind. Her recent accolades include a nomination for Best of LA Cosmetic Dentist and Top Doc of Orange County by Orange Coast magazine, and being awarded fellow status by International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
I had a really bad experience at my prior dentist that turned me off from seeing another one for a long time. My wife convinced me that my experience at Dr. Cho's practice would be different, and after a while I reluctantly went. That was over a year ago, and I can honestly say that I could not be happier with my experience. She and her staff do everything they can to ensure you're as comfortable as possible, and they truly care about their patients. Also, Dr. Cho keeps up with new technology and procedures so she and her staff can continue to deliver the best care available. If you're looking for a new dentist or if you're not happy with the one you're currently seeing then I highly recommend visiting Dr. Cho's practice. I'm sure you'll be happy you did.
