What Our Patients Are Saying

Dr. Kao runs a top notch practice. Both him and his staff make you feel very comfortable, and his work is exceptional. I went to several periodontists before arriving at Dr. Kao's. He has an in-depth knowledge of the latest techniques and technologies but unlike other dentists, he will recommend the best treatment, not just the one that costs the most.

It is so hard these days to find a business or person that you can truly rely on. So many no longer care about delivering professional services that are worth it. Dr. Kao has gone above and beyond my expectations as a doctor, a dentist, a businessman, and a person. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and honest. He and his staff are true professionals. I am relieved to know that my family, friends, and I have a great team looking out for our best interests.

I needed a periodontist. The reasons why aren't important. But I am willing to give credence to Dr. Kao's professionalism and competence. I recommend him without hesitation or condition. His staff is polite, professional, and even funny, too.

Best Periodontist ever! I actually found Dr. Kao online. I was not happy with the treatment plan from the other dentist I had consulted with and was looking for a second opinion.
