On the personal side, Dr. Fran is married to his dental school sweetheart, Irene, who is now an Orthodontist. He is excited to be returning to Vancouver and in his spare time, Dr. Fran enjoys hiking, playing golf, tennis  and snowboarding (sometimes even in the terrain park with full safety gear, including a mouthguard!). He also loves reading young adult novels (his favorite still being Harry Potter!), watching movies and eating at delicious restaurants with his wife. His favorite animated character of all time is Olaf from Frozen and he also loves Hei Hei the chicken from Moana.

“Dr. Choi and her staff at Playtime Pediatric Dentistry were amazing with my 3 year old son who needed to get a cavity filled. Going to the appointment I was anxious about how my son would react and about the effects of sedation. When I walked into Dr. Choi's dental practice I felt immediately more at ease. From the very child-appealing decor, to their patient and caring approach, Dr. Ella and her staff know that treating children is about much more than completing a dental procedure. They were very skilled in making my son feel as comfortable as possible and have everything set up to make things go smoothly. I was very impressed and would highly recommend Dr. Choi to other parents. Michelle Q.”
