Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Zhao is thorough, reliable and is focused on preventative measures and minimal treatment vs. over treating. I've been going to him for 3 years now and have referred my sister. He's also flexible to accomadate your schedule and recently fit me in for a chipped tooth!
Dr Zhao is very professional. I highly recommend him.
Great! Cleaning was awesome and he spent time talking about next steps and preventative measures that I can take.
The service was excellent.
The best :)
Dr. Zhao is extremely knowledgable, great at explaining things in layman's terms, and extremely kind! He is very approachable with questions and I highly recommend him to anyone! He definitely makes going to the dentist not so scary anymore.
Saw me 5 mins early, answered all my questions. Does the cleaning himself - gentle and effective.
This was a quick and easy appointment for a night guard fitting. Took less than half an hour and it was no problem to check emails while he worked!
Dr. Zhao is very professional, and also very nice to talk with. He explains any issues and suggestions he has for your health clearly.

Great dentist, I'm very happy to have found him after a few tries in the city. Love going to him and trust him fully, which is critical for a dentist-patient relationship!
He's great at explaining what's going on with my dental health. I appreciate how concerned he is about me! I highly recommend him as your dentist if you're new to the area.
Dr. Zhao was clean and efficient. He runs a very professional office. I was surprised to see him filing my paperwork at the front desk, but I did have a late afternoon appointment and in the end, it made me feel much more comfortable getting to know him right away. AND my teeth looks fabulous and clean!
Super thorough, explained everything as he was doing it. A very kind person, will definitely be recommending to friends!
Dr. Zhao is an amazing dentist and the all around experience is great - he is very thorough, informative, patient with questions, and a genuinely nice person. Small & efficient office (with a great view), appointments always start on time although the time with Dr. Zhao never feels rushed.
I'm pretty sure I found my dentist for life. This guy is seriously awesome and incredibly detail oriented. Now, I get teeth cleanings every three months!
He was great!
Amazing, booked appointment last minute and he was accommodating. Very professional, affordable, extremely impressed by the quality of his work. He was kind and had great advice, no upsells just high quality dentistry.
Dr. Ryan was great and very informative!
I made an emergency appointment due to extreme tooth pain the night before. He was so kind and explained to me why I was in pain and was able to get an appointment with an endodontist in the same building right after for an emergency root canal. He was thorough, kind, and professional.
Dr. Zhao is very nice and professional. He patiently answered my questions and suggested things that I can do to keep my teeth and gums healthy.
Very thorough, took his time to explain all my questions and did every part of my exam from cleaning to X-rays. Very good experience.
This guy is A+. Highly recommended!
kind, sensitive, explained everything, And did not hurt me.
Great as always. Dr Zhao is very thorough, professional and nice!
I really liked how he told me what he was doing before he did it. I was also impressed with his numbing shot. I've had a lot of fillings and usually when they stick the needle in it hurts pretty bad, but not with Dr Zhao. It was painless!
Incredibly nice guy. Made sure I was comfortable and was very informative. Even has the latest modern equipment! The massaging chair relaxed the h*** out of me as well. Highly recommended!
He is very kind and attentive to my comfort level. He also takes his time explaining in a nice way why it is important I build certain habits - which I (and my gums) super appreciate.
He is friendly and very thorough for the exam. My cleaning was very gentle. Dr. Zhao spend his time to explain what is going on with my teeth , and answer my questions. No pushing for treatment. Will be back !
Dr Zhao is very patient and gentle, which makes me feel that he really cares about how I feel and he is willing to spend time giving professional advices. He is so much better than some other dentists I saw before, who just tried to finish the job ASAP... There was nothing uncomfortable during the whole cleaning process, and I liked the result. I definitely will come back and tell my friends about Dr Zhao.
Very professional and friendly. He took the time to explain to me the root of my problems, how to avoid them in the future, and anything else I needed to know.
Dr. Zhao was very thorough and did a great job (it was my first visit). The fact that he does Saturday appointments is a huge plus! He explained things well and made sure I was comfortable. I especially enjoyed the massage chair while the cleaning was happening. The only downside (and hence is 4 star vs. 5 star rating) is that English is not his first language, but for the most part you can understand everything, and in the instances I was having trouble, he would repeat it without issue.
nice guy, awesome dental / massage chair very professional and highly recommended!
Professional, nice, and got a ton of 1:1 time.
great dentist, highly recommended!
Ryan Zhao was easy to book an appointment with. Despite being the last appointment of the day, he was extremely thorough, answering all my additional questions and didn't rush me despite me ending up leaving just before 7pm (my appointment started at 5:45).
Dr. Ryan has been kind and modest, and his receptionist has been very nice. She was playing with my daughter while I was with Dr. Ryan. I really respect them:)
Excellent, thorough, and highly recommended.
Great experience. No wait time at all and he was very friendly and incredibly thorough. No judgments, just solid dental work.
He was extremely thorough and sincere!
I read reviews before going, and saw that he was good. When I arrived, he was ready to see me right away. He is very professional, polite, and informative. I hadn't gone to a dentist in a while, and so I wasn't very surprised to find I had a cavity. He showed me pictures of it and explained the process of a cavity and why fillings are important. Overall, I had a great experience. He was very attentive to any of my concerns. On a side note:The chair he treated me in even had a massage feature!
Thorough exam, cleaning and advice.
Courteous, on-time, and explained the procedures as necessary.
Dr. Zhao was great. Very thorough and friendly bedside manner. He took the time to explain the background behind what he was doing and why which I like.
I was on a one-time emergency visit. Dr Zhao was competaent and thorough. Pricing was fair.
The most thorough dentist I've ever known!
Dr. Zhao was great - I am kind of scared of the dentist in general but he made me feel very eased and comfortable.
Dr Zhao was wonderful! He was gentle, kind, friendly, and informative! I will recommend him to my friends and co-workers!
Great and professional dentist. Highly recommended!
Dr. Zhao's philosophy was "better to educate the patient than just drill, fill, and bill" which I highly appreciate. The office is clean and high-tech, so I was able to email my old xrays for him to examine on the spot, and he showed me pictures of my teeth throughout the visit, on a screen in front of me. He patiently answered all my questions, and when it was time to do my fillings, he was efficient, precise, and conservative--only filling the major cavities and leaving a minor one for us to monitor. The only reason I don't give 5 stars for "bedside manner" is that Dr. Zhao sometimes spoke too softly for me to hear while he was drilling.
It was great! I will definitely come back.
I highly recommend Dr. Zhao. He is a wonderful and competent dentist - very friendly, gentle, and thoughtfully answers concerns/questions. I have been very satisfied with my appointments so far!
