Crystal Tu, RDH
I am a graduate of West Los Angeles College dental hygiene program with honor of Summa Cum Laude. I am a board certified registered dental hygienist and continuing my education with an advanced degree at the Pennsylvania College of Technology at Penn State University.
I want to provide excellent preventive care to improve the oral health of my patients, and your comfort and wellness are most important to me. I am also trained in the latest dental techniques, and keep my training at a state of the art level by attending continuing education programs.
I look forward to meeting with you so we can work together to help you achieve your goal of a perfect smile.
I was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley and continue to live in this community with my husband and three amazing kids. I have been a dental assistant since 2006 after graduating from Everest College with top honors. I joined the dental office of Dr. Elyson and Assili in 2012. The goal of our office is to provide families dental care that lasts based on the most up to date scientific research. I enjoy getting to know the patients that visit our office and my job is to make sure that our office always stays in contact with each and every patient and that no one gets forgotten. My hobbies outside work include playing soccer, reading, and dancing.
I studied dental assisting at El Camino Real High School and began working in a dental office after graduation. I was subsequently trained in dental office administration. I have extensive knowledge in dental insurance plans that allows me to help our patients with their dental insurance benefits and policies. I also administer our own Smiles LA dental plan for those patient s without dental insurance.
My responsibility is to make it possible for patients to receive the dental care they need, or the smile they desire by simplifying their financial options. I love cheering for the Los Angeles Dodgers and enjoy spending every minute I have with my two daughters and my son.
I became a dental assistant in 2016 after completing UEI program and joined Dr. Elyson and Assili’s dental office upon graduation. I entered the dental field in 2007 by training in ICDC college dental technician program. I love dentistry and in enjoy interacting with my patients everyday. I know many patients have fear of visiting the dental office. I like helping my patients overcome their anxiety and provide a safe and comfortable during their visit. I enjoy living in the Valley with my Husband and two children. When I am not working, I love spending time with my family and spending time outdoors in particular, hiking and camping.
