Meet Our Concord Dentist
Dr. Chul Dokko has always been great at working with his hands, especially when it comes to small, intricate details. It was his brother (also a dentist) who first suggested that he pursue a career in dentistry.
After graduating with honors from the University of Southern California School of Dentistry in 2004, Dr. Dokko served as a Navy dentist and associate before opening his private Concord practice.
His professional affiliations include:
- American Dental Association
- California Dental Association
- Contra Costa Dental Society
- American Academy of Facial Esthetics
His Vision for Patients
When Dr. Dokko opened Brighter Day Dental, he did so knowing how hard it is to find someone reliable to do a good job for you. Whether it’s a mechanic, a plumber, or a home builder, he felt that people deserved honest workmanship and professional integrity. As a dentist, he strives to realize these values to his patients, as if they were his family and friends.
Outside of Work
Dr. Dokko is a busy dad to two beautiful girls. When he has free time, he also enjoys golfing, snowboarding, and playing tennis.
