Chue Cha Dentist

Dr. Chue Cha

Dr. Chue Cha (pronounced like “chew”) was born and raised in California, and completed his dental training at the University of Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco. Afterward, he completed an intensive general practice residency at the University of Minnesota, where he gained additional training in emergency dental care, restoring complex dental cases, and treating medically complex patients. During his residency, he fell in love with the state of Minnesota and decided to stay.

Natural Dental is Dr. Chue’s vision of how dentistry should be delivered. The foundation of the practice is based on truth, honesty, care, kindness, and laughter. He believes that dentistry should be delivered with transparency, so he’s invested in digital scanners and cameras to record all treatments rendered. Dr. Chue is an astute dentist and takes a lot of pride in his work. He strongly believes that the best care is delivered when doctors listen to their patients’ needs, and he works tirelessly to make sure that his treatments are evidenced-based and delivered with careful attention.

Dr. Chue strives to be a well-rounded person and has many passions and hobbies. He grew up fixing cars, so he loves them, and can talk about cars all day. And with a bachelor’s degree in biology from UCLA, Dr. Chue has a soft spot for plants and animals, so you will find a variety of aquariums and plants throughout the clinic. He also loves to teach (and even considered becoming a high school teacher before switching to dentistry), so he mentors students throughout the year. Lastly, he enjoys playing the guitar and singing, and if you’re lucky enough, you may walk in on one of his performances. But dentistry is not all that Dr. Chue wants to do. His long-term goal is to have a positive impact in the community and to inspire young people to pursue their dreams and goals. Dr. Chue is truly an amazing and compassionate dentist; you will believe it when you meet him.

Doreen Palmer Dental Assistant

Doreen Palmer

Doreen (Dory) Palmer has been working at our practice for over 25 years and continues to do so because she really cares about the patients. Dory grew up in Vadnais Heights, and her favorite part about Minnesota is the lakes. She is happily married to John, and they have two grown daughters and a chocolate lab named Ace. Dory believes that the highest quality of care is delivered when we put patients first, therefore she always takes the time to talk to the patients. Outside of work, Dory enjoys fishing, spending time with her family, and tending to her garden.

In her spare time, Sara enjoys traveling, hiking, exercising, singing, and spending time with her friends and family.
