Pleasant, made me feel comfortable. Didn't try to sell me on procedures or products I didn't need or want. That was important to me after having had one dentist that was always trying to push me to do things I didn't want, nor could afford.

I can't rate Dr. Zhu highly enough. I hadn't been to the dentist in far too long before seeing her and needed to have a lot of work done. She was very straightforward and non-judgemental in developing the treatment plan. Sheis also a very gentle and skilled dentist - numbing injections and procedures were painless. If you are dentist phobic, or just have put off dental visits, I highly recommend Dr. Zhu.

She is a very good dentist. I was sad when she left previous Alexandria office. But I was able to track her down and now I drive approx. 40 minutes to her new office. But I do not mind because shedoes excellent job. My kids love her, too. She is the only dentist they trust and it says a lot!

There is a spa-like atmosphere, which is unusual for a dental office. I actually feel at peace when I'm sitting in the chair.....strange but what a relief. Dr. Zhu fix a really large cavity with no pain and is very gentle. Really like this office and Dr. Zhu is wonderful.

Dr. Zhu is very kind and friendly. I saw her last year for a cleaning and some fillings. She was able to accommodate my schedule and gave me a choice about whether to do them all at once or split betweenmultiple appointments. I've never had to wait for my appointment for more than a few minutes.
