    I saw Dr. Chau for the examination and it was amazing! She is extremely thorough - none that I have ever experienced before. Tammy, the hygienist is also amazing. I think I have finally found the best dental office for me!

    Only went for initial check up. Office was able to obtain x-rays from my prior dentist office with my approval. Didn't have to go through another set of x-rays. Dr. Ro was thorough but not excessive with care, pointed out clear areas of focus but did not recommend fillings, or other more invasive fixes unless absolutely necessary. Front desk was helpful and dealt with insurance directly.

    Staff at 20 Finch Dental were warm and welcoming. Dr John did a good explanation of my teeth and gums condition. He wasn't pushy with unnecessary aesthetics, unlike other clinics who would push you to get them done to earn more $$$.

    I cannot sing Dr. Ro and his team enough praises. My in-laws are all moving their files over as well to his office. Patient, kind, sensitive, positive and informative are all adjectives I would use to describe the team. I can’t wait to go back for my next appointment!

    I made an appointment to see Dr.John Ro, after seeing my previous dentist for 15+ years. The primary reason for switching dentists was due to location. After Dr. Ro's assessment, I realized the services that I was missing. Dr. Ro's assessment was thorough and informative. He uncovered issues that were not brought to my attention in previous visits with my former dentist's office. I'm delighted to continue working with Dr. Ro to continue improving my oral health, and recommend him to others who are looking for a new dentist, a change, or a second opinion.

    I have always had anxiety going to the dentist and I was very nervous seeing a new dentist this time around but as soon as I walked into 20 Finch dental, my anxiety disappeared. The receptionist was very welcoming and very sweet. Dr. Ro made me feel like he genuinely cares for his patients and explained everything in terms I could understand. The hygienist, Amanda, was amazing too...this was the first time since I can remember that I left a dental office without my teeth aching for days afterwards. I look forward to my follow up visits.
