If you were to search for my name on the internet, you will find that I have focused and dedicated my entire office mission to be about smiles and cosmetic dentistry for many years in Anchorage and Soldotna, Alaska. As a national award winning Alaska cosmetic dentist for smile makeovers, I strongly believe in providing the latest in technology, exceptional quality in dental cosmetic materials, updated techniques and most current methods in treatment.
Dr. Hu keeps at the forefront of technology and treatment methods by attending the world’s leading cosmetic dental education programs, such as the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry’s Scientific Sessions and the Las Vegas Institute (LVI) for Advanced Dental Studies, on an annual basis.

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 Okamotos (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.

Over the years, Dr. Hu has attained extensive training at the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, American Academy of Implant Dentistry, American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, International Congress of Oral Implantologists, and at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI).

In addition to applying both artistic and scientific principles to his work, his profound passion is to help make life changing dentistry. Dr. Hu has also been invited to speak at future conferences.
