About Dr. Hung Quoc Lu, DDS, MS

Born with a love of art, Dr. Quoc Lu enjoyed drawing through much of his childhood. Surrounded by computers, Dr. Lu also dove into the engineering and architecture design aspects of computer science. He believes that the study and practice of orthodontics involves both aesthetic design and empirical science in creating facial, skeletal, and dental harmony.

Dr. Quoc Lu was born in Vietnam but was raised in northern VA. After graduating summa cum laude from Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology annually recognized among the top high schools in the country, he attended the University of Virginia where he pursued a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Computer Science. He worked for several years in the corporate consulting world at Accenture Consulting. Afterwards, Dr. Lu pursued his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, summa cum laude, from the Medical College of Virginia. In addition to his dental degree, Dr. Lu also earned a Master of Science degree in Oral Biology and a degree in Orthodontics from the Medical College of Virginia. He has been a contributing author in multiple medical publications and has also had the privilege to present orthodontic topics in national and state orthodontic meetings as well as abroad in Italy.

While in dental school, he served as Class President, Secretary of the Student Government Executive Committee, and a National Leader with the American Student Dental Association. Dr. Lu also started a local student organization called SAME (Social Awareness and Multicultural Education), winner of the Best New Student Organization.

Dr. Quoc Lu has achieved multiple honors including induction into the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon Society as well as the William S. Kramer Award of Excellence – an honor given to only one student in a dental class. Upon graduation, he received student awards from the American Association of Orthodontists, American Academy of Craniofacial Pain, American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Department of Prosthodontics, and the International College of Dentists. He has also won the ASDA Award of Excellence, the Richmond Dental Study Club Scholarship, the AD Williams Research Fellowship, and the R. Ashton Gay and Henry F. Vaughn Memorial Scholarship.

As of March 30, 2023, Dr. Lu is also the President of the Virginia Association of Orthodontists (VAO), a non-profit organization of orthodontic specialists that has been advancing the science of orthodontics and striving for excellence since 1961 with over 270 active and retired members.

About Dr. Heejo Han, DMD

Dr. Han was born in South Korea and moved to the United States with his family at age 10. He grew up in northern Virginia with a love for using his hands to fix appliances, play with Legos, and repair things around the house. After wondering how he could utilize his handiness in the medical field, he discovered dentistry and never looked back.

Dr. Han shadowed a few dentists over the years, later finishing undergraduate studies at the University of Virginia in 2010, and dental school at the Medical University of South Carolina in 2014, followed by residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the University of California Los Angeles in 2015. After working at several corporate offices, Dr. Han became inspired to open his own practice. He is now focusing on creating a personalized experience for patients and a rewarding environment for his staff.

Dr. Han has extensive knowledge in root canals, implants, and cosmetic dentistry, which qualifies him with comprehensive care for his patients. Dr. Han is also an active member of the American Dental Association. When he’s not in the office, you can find him enjoying outdoor activities with his wife and daughter.
