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 feelmuch more comfortable getting to know him right away. AND my teeth looks fabulous and clean!

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 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!

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.

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 massagechair 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.

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 Iwasn'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!
