Dr. Hu's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Hu "Dr. Jerry Hu, DDS, grew up in Soldotna, Alaska, the heart of the Kenai Peninsula and home of the world record King Salmon. He graduated from Soldotna high School in 1991, earning abundant local, state and national scholarships and was also admitted to a very competitive dual-degree program, called the "Preferred Admissions Program" at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. He knew he wanted to become a dentist ever since middle school, and being admitted to this vigorous program, he was able to attain both his bachelor's and doctorate degree at age 24. While at Michigan Dental School, Dr. Hu earned research recognition and awards, for his study, "Searching for practical methods to monitor Streptococcus mutans levels" under Dr. Walter J. Loesche, former President of the International Academy of Dental Research (IADR) and American Academy of Dental Research (AADR). Dr. Hu is married to "Sharon" Yi Hui Hu and they have three children together, Walter T. Hu, William S. Hu, and Warren A. Hu. Sharon is from Taiwan, and loves the Kenai Peninsula. This community has embraced her, and she loves being an Alaskan. Dr. Hu is a true Alaskan at heart. He loves everything about Alaska, from hiking the mountains and fishing the rivers, to biking the great outdoors and participating in winter sporting events. Dr. Hu has also obtained his black belt in Karate from Peninsula Martial Arts (Jinen Ryu style Karate). As Dr. Hu feels his identity is "Alaskan", he returned home right after graduation to practice dentistry in 1998, taking over a locally well known and highly respected practice-- that of Dr. Calvin Fair's.Currently, Dr. Hu is dedicated to providing exceptional dentistry in Anchorage and Soldotna. Over the years, Dr. Hu has attained extensive training at the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI). He thoroughly enjoys changing the lives of his clients through new smiles-- designed and fashioned by nationally recognized and award winning MACVEENERS team.
