What I appreciated most about my visit with Dr. Vo was how clearly she explained everything she was doing: what specific tools were for, what she was looking for, and what next steps would be. I’ve only had my first visit,but I already feel like I’m well taken care of.

Dr. Vo and her team are incredible at making you feel at ease once you step foot into their office. Dr. Vo explained everything that was happening during my oral exam, which was something I've never experienced with a dentist before.On top of proactively educating me on oral hygiene and their processes/tools in the office, she also took the time to answer all of my questions. I'm actually excited to come back to see her for my next appointment!

Dr. Vo, Tracy and Anna are the best dental team you could ask for! They made sure I was comfortable and educated about my entire dental treatment and worked with me to come up with a comprehensive dental plan. All myquestions about insurance and treatments were promptly answered. It was the most thorough dental experience I've had and I cannot recommend them more highly!

Dr. Vo and her staff were very courteous and thorough during my visit. They let me know what they were doing, and why, the entire time and made me feel extremely comfortable. I've been pretty fortunate in that I've had gooddental visits in the past, but this visit definitely takes the cake for sure. I've already made a follow up appointment and look forward to coming back.

Dr. Vo is a wonderful dentist. Great bedside manner, upbeat, and very professional. I had a filling that fell out from another dentist. She filled it no time. I was in and out in less than 45 minutes and my bite is perfect.

My visit with Dr. Vo was very pleasant - and this is coming from someone who dreads visiting the dentist! The entire staff is kind, patient, and takes the time to explain both insurance/pricing and the treatment itself. I highly recommend this practice!

Dr. Vo is great. She is super nice, accessible, and friendly. After I got a crown with her, she called in the next day to see how I was feeling. I also got a few fillings done, and she called thenext day to check on me those times too. Big fan! I did get a second opinion on the crown just to be responsible, and the 2nd dentist told me the same thing. (That I needed to get it).

She was awesome! I am a new patient who has not been to the dentist in over a year. I had a through exam, lots of xrays and pictures taken of the surfaces of my teeth. We then went over everythingand formed a game plan based on the items Katherine thought were priorities. I did get a deep cleaning, which was not fun, but what did I expect after not having visited a dentist in over a year.

This was not my best ZocDoc experience. First, the appointment time I scheduled through the app was apparently not available. I received a call within a couple hours from the doctor's office, but there is an issue with integration that needsto be addressed. Second, while on the phone, I clearly communicated my intention NOT to have an X-Ray performed. The staff person said that could be an issue but did not indicate it was a showstopper or how it might be addressed. Third, when I showed up to my appointment, I was told they could not see me without an X-Ray unless I could provide recent copies. They wasted my time by not telling me in advance to request X-Rays from my last dental visit. I'll be looking for another dentist that has their act together.

After a negative first visit with another local dentist, Dr. Vo was much more professional, thorough and trustworthy. Constant, friendly communication as to all services I received and recommended. All staff encounters with the front desk, dental assistants and xray technicians were friendly and professional!

After I filled out my initial paperwork, I was brought in to do a bunch of X-Rays by JR. Really friendly and laid back guy - he set a GREAT first impression which I think made me feel at ease withthings. Dr. Vo was very friendly and explained everything to me in depth. She also made sure that I had the chance to ask her any questions that I may have had. While Dr. Vo (and CitiDent) seem to be pretty focused on cosmetic dentistry, she didn't try to convince me to do any major cosmetic work. She asked if I was concerned about my front gap, and small chip on my front tooth, but nothing more than that. If I do decide to get these done at some point, I would do them with Dr. Vo for sure. I had a great experience here, and will be going in again soon to get some routine procedures done. Fillings, etc... I will be a lot less nervous when I go back than I was on my first trip in :)
