Dr. Ludu

Phoenix Arizona dentist John Ludu D D S

Dr. Ludu hails from Vancouver, British Columbia. When he was a child, he constantly dreamed of becoming a professional ice hockey player in the NHL like most boys in Canada, but eventually, he decided he was better suited to a life of dentistry. Over the years, Dr. Ludu has practiced in several states, including New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Arizona. He eventually decided to make Washington State his home. Our patients enjoy his impressive level of experience, his precise skill, his speed, as well as his ability to keep advanced procedures like root canal therapy and extractions virtually painless. He is fully committed to both his valued patients and our wonderful staff members.
