    My experience with Dr. Gao was great! She was very nice and friendly. She gave me tips on how to better take care of my teeth's specific problem areas, which I appreciate and other doctors don't take the time to do. Appointment also started on time as well!

    Dr. Gao was fantastic. The check in process for a first time patient was easy, and everyone at the office had great communication, and great quality of care. Dr. Gao saw me quickly, and answered all of my questions while providing a gentle touch during the cleaning process.

    Dr. Yang Gao was patient and took time to explain the procedure, and answered all my questions. Unlike other dentist experiences I had/ heard about, she didn’t recommend any procedure that wasn’t necessary. I didn’t feel nervous at all, and I would definitely recommend her to others

    She was great! Didn't berate me at all even though I’ve been avoiding the dentist for 2+ years. She filled my cavity in the same appointment as my cleaning which was so convenient! She was very clear about what I should change about my brushing habits to avoid future cavities.

    The visit was worth it. The hospital doesn't take appointments on Monday, but the Opencare platform allowed me to book one. Which was confusing, and at the hospital there was a 25 min delay, due to which I had to reschedule my meetings after the visit.

    This is the first time i came to her office. I feel a bit nervous but doctor is extremely kind and patient. She is not only trying to fix the existing problems and help me the correctify my bad habit to prevent the potential issue. This is the only dentist who tells me to be aware of that. Really appreciate her help during the whole process.

    When I arrived, i was greeted with a smile and paperwork since this was my first time at this practice. As soon as I finished my paperwork, I was called in. They dental assistant greeted me as well and started to ask me questions to get to know me. She then found out that I was pregnant, so they were not able to take x-ray pictures of my teeth. The dentist came in soon after and informed me what was going to happen and she also let me know ahead of time what was happening and what I was going to feel. Overall, the staff made me feel very comfortable and safe. This feeling is important for those who are nervous about going to the dentist and trying to build and establish a relationship with their dentist.
