004: Why Before the What with Dr. Chrystle Cu from Cocofloss

Dr. Chrystle Cu is a graduate of Wellesley College and University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry. She practices general dentistry in San Mateo, California, in the center of Silicon Valley. As a prevention-focused dentist, she created Cocofloss in 2015.
Outside of private practice, she volunteers to provide dental treatment and oral health education to underserved communities without access to care. She’s passionate about finding creative ways to inspire folks to start flossing – and to love it! For Chrystle, success as a doctor means she’s helped patients achieve a healthy mouth and broader understanding of how oral health relates to the body overall.
