In 1956 Dr. Chaus parents residing in Hong Kong sent him to study at Nudgee College (Queensland), which is one of the Great Public Schools.
On completing secondary education he enrolled in the Dental Faculty at Queensland University. In his final year he received a bursary from the Tasmanian government. In return he had to render dental services in Tasmania for 1 year.
After working for 3 years Dr. Chau and his wife, Irene, decided to make Tasmania home and he commenced private practice in 1969.
As well as running a successful dental practice he has also achieved many professional accolades.
During the period of 1974-1995 he was heavily involved with Australian Dental Association (ADA) of Tasmania as a dedicated committee member. From 1982-1984 Dr. Chau was President of the Tasmanian Branch of the ADA. In 1980 and 1995 he was elected treasurer for both National Dental Congresses held in 1980 & 1995.
Dr. Chau was elected a "Fellow of the International College of Dentists" on the 21st July 2000. This honour was in recognition of his service to the Dental Profession.
Whilst the practice has many patients that are coming from 3rd generation families, we also welcome new patients. Dr. Chau currently works 4 days a week in a most enthusiastic manner. He thoroughly enjoys the company of his staff and patients.
The success achieved over the past 40 years could only happen with the support and dedication of his fantastic staff and loyal patients.
