Meet The Doctor

Dr. Kukhwa Ryu has been practicing dentistry in California for more than ten years with passion and care. She and her husband fell in love with the Redwoods and the North Coast, and now consider Eureka one of the most beautiful and peaceful places to live.  Dentistry continues to fulfill her goals of serving people in her community, wherever that may be.

Dr. Ryu’s close attention to detail, combined with her cheerful and compassionate spirit, is something she delivers to all her patients.  She is very family-oriented and dedicated to providing the highest quality of care and practice to her community. Throughout her career, Dr. Ryu has participated in many Continuing Education courses, especially those focused on cosmetic dentistry and endodontic treatments.  She is a member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and the Humboldt County Dental Association.

Being a lover of nature and the outdoors, Eureka is the ideal home for Dr. Ryu.  She regularly hikes in the mountains or runs on the shores of beaches with her husband and their dog Daisy.  She has come to embrace her new community and hopes to make a positive impact on those around her.  Dr. Ryu is very excited to meet you in person, and hopes to help you attain a healthy and beautiful smile!
