Mark Chua DDS
Dr. Mark Chua grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota. In 1991, Dr. Chua graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from St. John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota. In 1995 he received his D.D.S. from the University of Minnesota. During his 4th year he participated in a study abroad program at The Royal Dental Hospital of Melbourne, in Australia. After graduation, he was an associate in a private practice in Colorado Springs and was a weekly volunteer at The Pikes Peak Community Health Center.
In 1997, Mark moved to Winter Park to join the Winter Park Dental practice and became a partner in 1998. Through the years he has enjoyed working with his patients in a small town atmosphere, finding great satisfaction in treating teeth and caring for his patients.
Dr. Chua maintains an active membership in the Western Colorado Dental Society, the Colorado Dental Association and the American Dental Association. He continues to enjoy volunteering at the 9news Health Fair in Fraser and learning about the latest dental technologies going to over 50 hrs of continuing dental education per year. Dr. Chua has also participated in dental and medical missions in Guatemala and the Philippines. His volunteer trips have been interesting and amazing experiences. Mark feels very fortunate to be able to experience different cultures and to be able to give some relief to people with dental pain and infections. Dr. Chua hopes to participate with another dental medical mission trip in the future. Dentistry, for Dr. Chua, has become more about forming a relationship with his patients and spending more time with them to deliver quality dental care.
He and his wife, Kristen, are busy raising 3 boys, Graham, Nathan, and Elias. Together they enjoy traveling, music festivals, hiking, camping, tele-skiing, golf, biking, and running with the dogs. Grand County is a beautiful place to live and work.
