    I had some deep cleaning done with Dr. Jiahua. He was patient but quick and very efficient + effective with the lidocaine. Also quite observant and perceptive to any reactions from me.

    Dr. Zhu was very meticulous during my appointment – we went over my x-rays together and he explained to me exactly where I might have problem areas that may require a follow-up visit, and whether they're really even needed. He also gave me some great advice on how to keep my teeth healthy and where to look for teeth alignment (something I've been looking for). Overall I had a pleasant visit and would highly recommend Dr. Zhu if you're looking for a new dentist!

    He was extremely thorough and patient. He also took the time and care to explain what he was doing and why. The great thing is I didn't feel like there was any upsetting or pressure to do unnecessary procedures. Highly recommend -- I will definitely be back!

    I just went to a standard cleaning, and it was a pleasant experience. The assistant and Dr. Zhu were nice, they walked me through my x-rays, told me about potential for needing fillings in the future, and I was on my way. The receptionist seemed a bit irritated but could have just been a bad day. Overall I'd return.

    Dr Zhu is kind, calm and effective. He did things differently from my last dentist so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it felt far more thorough and informative than I ever thought to expect.

    I went to Dr. Zhu after seeing another dentist for my last cleaning who recommended numerous fillings, root canal, and $1000 mouthguard. Dr. Zhu assessed my teeth and the work that had been done and was very transparent about not needing such extensive work, and his office quoted my mouthguard at half the amount of the other office. Very glad I stopped in as I had a decent amount of anxiety before coming!
