    General Dentist

    Born and raised in Arlington, Texas. Dr. Dawson spent his youth trying to grow up as quickly as possible, eventually meeting my soulmate and now wife of 8 years. We worked as a team and excelled through 4 amazing years in college at Texas A&M University- Corpus Christi with aspirations to become Dentists. We were privileged to be given the opportunity to attend dental school in Dallas, Texas at Texas A&M University College of Dentistry- where we again spent 4 amazing years working hard to become the best dentists we can be.

    Every day I enjoy life’s ups and downs and appreciate all of the opportunities I have been fortunate enough to experience. I enjoy coming to work every day knowing I’ll be bringing beautiful smiles out in my community.

    Jerry Chiu, DDS

    Oral Surgeon

    Dr. Jerry Chiu was born and raised in New Jersey, but is proud to call himself an Austinite. As a child, he dreaded going to the dentist, but the saving grace was the comfort and compassion he felt in the chair by his dental professional. Years later, as a practicing oral surgeon, Dr. Chiu continues to emphasize the importance of providing compassionate care, yet maintaining professionalism and delivering safe and outstanding surgical expertise. Dr. Chiu obtained his doctor of dental surgery degree at Columbia University, where he was involved in international mission trips to Cambodia. He completed his oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at the competitive Medstar Washington Hospital Center, serving as chief resident in the final year. His training also included working at esteemed affiliated hospitals, such as the John Hopkins Hospital, DC Veteran Affairs Medical Center, Children’s National Hospital, and the National Institute of Health.

    Dr. Chiu practices the full scope of oral surgery with special emphasis on outpatient sedation and anesthesia, dentoalveolar surgery, implantology, oral pathology, and soft and hard tissue reconstruction.

    Outside of work, Dr. Chiu is an avid tennis player, scuba diver, foodie, and cyclist. You can find him cruising along Lady Bird Lake or eating his way through Austin in his spare time. He is also the proud father of a French bulldog named Cooper. Dr. Chiu enjoys traveling internationally and has backpacked in over 18 countries with even more trips in mind.
