|Yu and YOUR Orthodontics!|
|A native Albertan, Dr. Jessica Yu was born and raised in Edmonton. After graduating from Harry Ainlay Senior High, she went on to Boston University, in Boston, Massachusetts, where she earned her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) in 2008. Boston University School of Dental Medicine is a premier academic dental institution promoting excellence in dental education, research, oral health care and community service to improve the overall health of the global population.
In 2010, Dr. Yu received her certificate in Orthodontics from the University of Pennsylvania. UPenn teaches several popular corrective orthodontic regimens, giving Dr.Yu a thorough understanding of the respective merits of each treatment philosophy and the ability to apply them clinically. Since many corrective Orthodontic issues involve adolescents, Dr. Yu focuses strongly on growth and development.
Dr. Yu is a member of the Fellowship in the Royal College of Dentists of Canada (F.R.C.D.(C)), the Canadian Association of Orthodontics (CAO), the American Association of Orthodontics (AAO) and the Alberta Society of Orthodontics (ASO). She also facilitates training at the University of Alberta pre-doctoral dentistry program as a part-time clinical instructor.
In her spare time, Dr.Yu enjoys all things sports. An avid Oilers fan, Dr. Yu takes any opportunity she has to catch the games on TV or in person. She also plays badminton competitively and is heavily involved in local rugby. Dr. Yu has been playing rugby since her teens and now volunteers her time as the women’s director and U19 Women’s coach for the Nor’Wester Rugby Club Athletic Association. Dr. Yu’s passions are her patients, children and sports. Her love of each shines through in the work she does.
In all matters of personal and professional life, Jessica aims to encourage all to “Live Life Smiling.”
