About Us


Dr. Vivian Broadway

Dentist

Vivian was born and raised in Southern California. She began her migration to beautiful Northern California by attending the University of California, Santa Barbara. She graduated from UCSB with honors and a degree in biopsychology. She then received her degree in dentistry at the prestigious University of California, San Francisco. She was excited to begin her family practice in Mill Valley where her husband, James, was born and raised. She has been in the same location for over 20 years. James and Vivian have enjoyed being part of their community and are thankful to have raised their two grown daughters in Mill Valley.

Dr. Broadway continues to grow her extensive knowledge and pursue her education regarding the latest dental procedures, technologies, and practices. She has attended seminars and workshops at the Spear Center and completed a mini-residency in sleep health at the UCLA Dental School. She is a family dentist and provides comprehensive dental care for people ages 1–101. She believes it is important to treat the entire family, because dental care and oral health are a family matter.


Marisa

Front Office Manager

I have worked in the medical and dental fields as a business administrator since 1989, and I have been with Dr. Broadway since 2012. I manage the front office and will assist you with your appointments and any financial questions you may have. I also specialize in dental billing. You will find that I am an advocate for all of our patients. I will ensure that your maximum benefits are utilized toward your dental needs. I grew up in Sonoma County, and, when I am not at the office, you will find me spending time with family and friends, enjoying a good restaurant, or pursuing my passion for wine, traveling, books, movies, art, or music.


Danea

Registered Dental Assistant

Hi everyone! My name is Danea, and I have had the honor of working with Dr. Broadway for the past four and a half years. I graduated from Everest Dental Assisting School in 2013. At this office, I work chair side with Dr. Broadway and assist anywhere else I may be needed. Currently, I am taking classes at the College of Marin with the hopes of becoming a dental hygienist. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my children, ages six and two; traveling; and reading.


Dr. Chung-Hwa Chu
(also known as CC)

Associate Dentist

Aloha to all of our dental families! I’ve had my career in the dental profession for well over thirty years. Since then, I have seen it evolve through the use of advanced technology and social media. I am excited to be in a profession where we are still making cutting edge progress towards new frontiers. Early in my career, I did some general dentistry, but I have mostly served my patients through dental hygiene over the past twenty years. I really enjoy getting to know all of our patients, educating them regarding their periodontal health, and making them co-therapists in the pursuit of their optimum oral health. As a licensed dentist, I meet the continuing education requirements by taking courses in all phases of dentistry. It is rewarding to concentrate on the preventative aspects of dentistry and adjunctive aids to better achieve systemic and oral health in patients.

My husband, a periodontist, and I have lived in Novato since 1995 and have raised our two grown sons here. Outside of work, my interests are travel adventures, competitive open water paddling races, hiking our Marin trails, yoga, indoor rock climbing, and skiing at Tahoe. Hawaii is my favorite travel destination because I can immerse myself in it’s island life and water sports. I thoroughly enjoy working with Dr. Broadway and her enthusiastic, talented staff. I believe we provide you and your families with optimal dental care in a friendly and professional atmosphere. Mahalo, and welcome to our ohana.


Hygiene Team

As a dental hygiene team, we work as co-therapists with Dr. Broadway to provide the most thorough comfortable, and effective treatment for our patients. We continually seek innovative ways and new technology that will facilitate patient care and treatment. Our goal is to enable each individual to take responsibility for their own health. With proper education that is customized to each patient based on their needs, we can accomplish that goal. We aim to foster a continuing relationship based on integrity, respect, and trust.

Julie

Registered Dental Hygienist

With a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from the University of California at San Francisco, I feel privileged to be working in Mill Valley with Dr. Broadway. Our team is professional, knowledgeable, and friendly! Patient comfort, knowledge, and involvement are my utmost concerns during a hygiene appointment.

As a local resident for more than 30 years, dental hygiene is my way of contributing to the community that I love. After raising two sons, my volunteer work with the Homestead Valley Land Trust and Firewise address my environmental interests. I love to see you SMILE!


Lauren

Registered Dental Hygienist

I am a registered dental hygienist in alternative practice (RDHAP). When I am not treating patients in our office, I am able to treat patients onsite or in the hospital. I also enjoy my position as an instructor of periodontics and dental hygiene at the University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry. Another passion of mine is being the Executive Administrator of the Beyond Faces Foundation, a national nonprofit for children requiring facial reconstruction.

Prior to obtaining a B.S. in dental hygiene from the University of the Pacific, I earned B.A. degrees in both journalism and industrial arts with emphases in print and digital media from San Francisco State University. I have worked for the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals Foundation, worked with the Interdisciplinary Dental Education Academy, participated in clinical research, and continue to indulge in freelance projects.
