    Dr. Will Eunku Chung earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from the prestigious Seoul National University College of Dentistry. After a few years of working as a general practitioner, he decided to focus on the subject of his interest; Restorative, Implant and Prosthetic Dentistry.

    He came to Seattle and completed his specialty certificate in prosthodontics and Master of Science in Dentistry Degree at the University of Washington Graduate Prosthodontics Program. During more than three years of his specialty training, he was trained for dental implants both surgically and prosthetically. He was a full-time assistant professor at the University of Texas Houston Dental Branch until early 2009. He led a team of specialists/professors including an orthodontist, periodontist and oral surgeon to treat patients with congenital deformities, such as ectodermal dysplasia or incontinentia pigmenti.

    Currently, he serves as an affiliate assistant professor of the University of Washington Graduate Prosthodontic Program. He has spoken on multiple subjects in implant and prosthetic dentistry nationally and internationally to dental professionals and students. He is also serving as an outside expert reviewer for the implant journal, International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Implants. Dr. Chung is also a compassionate dentist.

He was directly involved in denture projects for tent city people as well.

Our Happy Patients

"Dr. Macks and his staff are amazing. We stumbled across this office when my husband was having horrible tooth pain and needed emergency care. We called around to numerous dentists and left several messages (it was after hours about 9 pm). Dr. Macks was the only one to ever call us back, he wrote a prescription to help him through the night then scheduled him first thing in morning. They very good care of my husband at this appointment and we knew we'd be life long patients! This was about 5 years ago and we have been going ever since. We receive superior care every time we go. They are so friendly and kind . Several members of our family have started seeing Dr. Macks as well. "

"I have been going to this Dental office for over 10 years now and I would never go anywhere else. The entire office staff is friendly and professional and your personal dental hygienist will greet you in the waiting room with a smile every appointment. I use to loathe going to the dentist but this staff makes a pleasant experience every visit. I have referred my friends and family to Dr Macks and will definitely continue to do so."

Dylan W. Dylan W.

"If you are looking for a dentist, call Dr. Macks now. He is by far the most capable and humane dentist I have ever visited. He did more for me in one appointment than other dentists have done for me over my whole life. He is helping me get my teeth where they need to be faster and better than I knew was even possible. And he can do almost everything in his beautiful, comfortable office. His staff are wonderful too. He is getting very busy so appointments are precious. Going to Dr. Macks was one of the best decisions I"ve made with my dental care, now all of my family goes to him. This recommendation is meant for Dr. Macks and not for the other dentists that practice in his office."
