Alexander S. Choe, DDS, MS

Hi there! My name is Alex and I want to welcome you to Albany Periodontics! In 2016, I was blessed with this practice and with an amazing team of providers. As a Periodontist, I specialize in implant therapy, periodontal cosmetic surgery, treatment of gum diseases. I believe that oral health is a vital component to achieving overall health and wellness. Thus, I am constantly striving to deliver comprehensive care to all my patients through minimally invasive surgery and strategic prevention of periodontal diseases.

Let me tell you a little bit about my background. I was born in Queens, NY and was raised in Osaka, Japan. I returned to the States to pursue Biomedical Engineering, in which I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree at Vanderbilt University and a Master of Science degree at Columbia University. Interestingly, during my brief stint as a cartoonist in Boston, I discovered dentistry and fell in love. It was perfect for someone like me who is passionate about art and science. I earned my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of California, San Francisco and my Post-Doctoral Certificate in Periodontics at the University of Washington.

In 2010, I decided to return to New York, my home state, to practice periodontology. It was here in Albany, where I met my wife who was visiting from Los Angeles to complete her training in dentistry. We are now both thankful to be here and to call Albany our home. And most of all, we are deeply thankful to be parents to our lovely daughter and son, sleepless night and all. Again, I want to welcome you to Albany Periodontics! I hope to see you soon.


God bless,
