Dr. Andy L. Tieu received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S) from USC School of Dentistry and his Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Biology from UCLA. He grew up in Cerritos, California, and settled in sunny San Diego where he met his lovely wife My who is a dental hygienist. They lived in Carlsbad for many years and have two wonderful boys Jonathan and Ian. More recently, they moved to Carmel Valley to be closer to the Scripps Poway Dental Care office which allows Dr. Tieu the flexibility to be readily available for patient care and dental emergencies while spending as much quality time on family adventures such as hiking, biking, travelling, and family gatherings. Dr. Tieu has obtained training and certifications in Invisalign, Lumineers, CAD-CAM dentistry, and completed the Loma Linda University School of Dentistry Maxi-course on dental implants in 2011. Dr. Tieu is a current member of ADA, CDA, SDCDS. He continues to keep up with new technologies and recently built out a state-of-the-art dental office designed with COVID-19 safety precautions in mind. This new convenient location at 6790 Top Gun St Ste 5, San Diego, CA 92121 is now open for patients from Scripps Ranch, Poway, Rancho Penasquitos, Mira Mesa, Sorrento Valley and La Jolla.
