ADA Accessibility Information


We at Dr. Yu and Associates, believe in the overall welfare of our patients but also advocate doing our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Following the mandate from Governor Abbott and the Texas Board of Dental Examiners, we are following distancing guidelines. This includes minimizing the number of patients and team members in the practice at one time. Also, patients are being treated one at a time on a personalized basis. We do require that patients wear face masks and screen themselves prior to visiting. Thank you for your understanding.

Meet Dr. Yu

Dr. David H. Yu is a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology. He graduated from Indiana University with a degree in Microbiology and a minor in Studio Art. Following graduation from Indiana University, he entered dental school at the Indiana School of Dentistry and graduated with honors and numerous awards.

He then attended a General Practice Residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. He also received his specialty training in periodontics at the UT Health Science Center in San Antonio. He completed three certifications in moderate intravenous sedation and holds certification in Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Life Support. He was in specialty practice in Dallas for three years before moving to Austin, Texas, where he is now one of the leading innovators of implant and periodontal therapy.

Dr. Yu has lectured nationally to general dentists, specialists, and hygiene professionals about wide-ranging topics such as biologic mediators, tissue engineering, virtual planning of implant placement, immediate implant therapy with provisionalization of implants, 3D-assisted surgery and All-On-4 (or “Teeth in a Day”). His unique skills have honed his practice towards aesthetic surgical periodontics.

He has been voted by his peers as “Super Dentist” in Texas Monthly (every year since 2004) and Austin Monthly (every year since 2006).

Dr. Yu is married and has two children. He enjoys reading, drawing, swimming, biking, traveling, and racing cars.
