Dr. Annie Yu is dedicated to providing advanced dentistry at the highest level with particular attention to the area of comprehensive care. Dr. Yu founded Avant Dentistry on this philosophy and made the pursuit of dental excellence its mission!

Dr. Yu is highly regarded for excellence in all aspects of general and cosmetic dentistry, including crowns, veneers, Invisalign, implant dentistry, and exquisite bonding. She is also known for her expertise in gum re-shaping, extractions, and root canal therapy. In addition, patients particularly enjoy her gentle touch and caring approach to patient care of establishing an instant rapport while putting patients at ease!
Dr. Yu is an Ohio native, and received her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry in 2006. To further enhance her training in general and cosmetic dentistry, she pursued an intensive postgraduate residency program at the University of Florida College of Dentistry, where she graduated from the Advanced Education in General Dentistry program in 2007. During this fellowship, Dr. Yu studied and trained with some of the nation's leading dental practitioners, including Dr. Peter Dawson of the Dawson Center for the Advancement of Dentistry. Dr. Yu credits training with such leaders so early-on in her career as to the reason why she holds herself to a higher standard, and why she puts so much value in high-quality continuing education. She brought these same values and dedication with her to Washington, DC where she has been in private practice since 2007. She feels honored to be living amongst and serving the people of the Washington DC metropolitan area, a place she now proudly calls home.

Working to stay at the forefront of today's cutting-edge techniques in dentistry, Dr. Yu maintains an extensive schedule of continuing education courses and training; she is a frequent student at The Spear Institute in Scottsdale, Arizona; the Dawson Center for the Advancement of Dentistry, in St. Petersburg, Florida; and the Pikos Implant Institute, in Palm Harbor, Florida. In June of 2013 and as a result of her extensive training and credentials, Dr. Yu was awarded her Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD); something less than 7% of dentists nationwide every achieve. Not only does this confer the additional designation of FAGD among her professional degrees but also inducts her into an elite assembly of practitioners. Additionally, Dr. Yu is active in the dental community where she is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the Maryland State Dental Association, the Southern Maryland Dental Society, the Comprehensive Care Study Sessions of Chevy Chase (Seattle Study Club), the Dental Science Club of Greater Washington, and the Chevy Chase Millenium Study Club. In line with her dedication to advancing the field of dentistry, Dr. Yu makes a personal commitment to help her fellow colleagues; Dr. Yu has also taken an active role as part of the managing board of the Dental Science Club of Greater Washington.

Dr. Yu firmly believes in giving back and sharing her love of dentistry with the community. It was after all "Operation Smile" that first inspired Dr. Yu to pursue a career in dentistry. Dr. Yu has traveled to Costa Rica on a surgical exodontia mission, where she provided her services along with dental supplies to help the people of the impoverished regions of this Central American nation.
She is also a proud volunteer participant with "Give Kids a Smile" program; an active member of the Junior Woman’s Club of Chevy Chase, a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to supporting the community and the underserved; and other volunteer activities.
