Dr. Vivian Huang

Dr. Vivian Huang is a second generation dentist and grew up in her father’s dental office.  She spent many weekends and summers helping her father in his dental practice in Southern California.   So, it was only natural for her to gravitate towards dentistry as a career choice.

Dr. Huang received her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts.  Upon graduation, she returned back to California to complete an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency program at UCLA. During that year, she was introduced to Dr. Noel Chiu, who showed her the beautiful Bay Area and convinced her to marry him and move up to the East Bay.  They have two beautiful daughters together.

Since 2008, Dr. Huang has been a faculty member at the University of the Pacific Dental School in San Francisco.  She enjoys being a part of the academic environment and loves teaching, as well as learning, from her peers and students. 

Dr. Huang strives to provide each and every patient with the most gentle, comfortable, and educational experience at Diablo Dentistry.
