Dr. Jireh J. Yue is originally from Virginia. He received his Bachelor of Science (BS) in materials science and engineering from Virginia Tech, Master of Science (MS) in materials science and engineering from Georgia Tech, and Master of Bioengineering (MBE) from Rice University. Before entering dentistry, Dr. Yue was a research scientist at NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, analysis lab manager at Rohm Haas Company, and senior project engineer at NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. He then decided to pursue dentistry as a way of integrating engineering principles, oral health concepts, hand articulation skills, and helping others and so received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from the University of Texas School of Dentistry in Houston, Texas.
Dr. Yue enjoys dentistry since it is an interactive profession with the community. It gives him the opportunity to serve patients in the local area and make a positive impact on one’s life, from improving teeth and its formation of a smile to restoring teeth to their proper use and function. Another reason he appreciates dentistry is that it integrates many academic subjects yet also requires mastery of dental procedures that are unique to the profession. He enjoys learning about the latest methods and instrumentation in order for all patients to have a comfortable and enjoyable experience.
Dr. Yue is committed to providing high-quality patient-focused dental care. After a patient expresses his or her dental concerns, he will formulate a personalized systematic treatment plan using the most current techniques, high-performance materials, and latest technology specific for each patient in order to improve one’s oral health and quality of life. He believes that having good oral health promotes good systemic health, which will lead to a better quality of life.
In his spare time, Dr. Yue enjoys playing praise and worship guitar, playing ice hockey, stamp collecting, fishing, and learning magic tricks.
