I have a fear of dentists that made me not see one in much longer than Id like to actually admit to. A friend of mine had recently gone here and told me that it was a pretty solid place that did a good job and seemed to only do what was necessary. I figured I was overdue and decided to give it a shot. Im so glad I did. Its obvious that everything here is new, high tech, and that a lot of thought went into making it look really nice. The people in front were professional and Dr Gao was a really nice guy who really knew what he was doing. An hour later I left with a deep cleaning, a good idea of what other things Id probably need down the road, and a great feeling that I actually found a dentist I liked and would be willing to go back to. This place is pretty great and definitely worth checking out. Oh yeah, they gave me a bag with a new toothbrush and other stuff that’ll be great for when I go on vacation too. Pretty amazing.

“I’ve been neglecting seeing a dentist for almost a decade because I always had good teeth (no cavities ever) and practice meticulous dental hygiene. So imagine my shock when on a random Sunday, when my back molar starts hurting like crazy. I heard about Dr. Gao from a friend and gave his office a call. Despite having a full schedule, he kindly opened up an hour earlier on Monday just so he could see me. One xray later, Dr. Gao showed me how my wisdom tooth, that was behaving properly last time I checked (a decade ago), had decided to come down, which created a huge cavity (as in 1/3 was decay) on my molar. The two treatment options were: 1) pulling out the teeth and getting an implant in its place, or 2) getting a root canal and crown. Having no dental insurance, I went with the second option. I later went to my college friend who is an oral surgeon to pull out my troublesome wisdom tooth. He saw the root canal on xray and told me molar root canals were extremely difficult to do, and it was one of the best work he has seen on a molar. That not many dentists would go through the trouble to do that root canal and save the tooth, especially when implant paid much much more. Hearing this I was extremely thankful that Dr. Gao took my financial situation into consideration and offered an alternative treatment that I could afford. Needless to say, I went back to Dr. Gao for the crown. Now months later, my tooth looks perfect and feels perfect. I am so happy to have found Dr. Gao, who is so skilled with his work and doesn’t charge an arm and leg. If you are looking for a dentist who does the job right with no upselling, Dr. Gao is the one to go to.”

This is the sixth visit back. My wife and I now have done cleanup, deep cleanup, crown, and a couple of fillings. Dr. Gao is always pleasant, friendly and helpful. He did a good job explaining the details of the treatment. I have been to dentist office for 40 years now and has never feel so relaxed in a dental office. Charges are very reasonable. On the occasion that I have a broken tooth, Dr Gao’s office was able to get me in the next day. Good jobs Dr Gao!
