Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Yao "I have been practicing dentistry for more than 20 years, the last 15 at my current office in Shoreline. I grew up in Seattle and spent more than half of my life living in Shoreline. It is my honor to serve the community of Shoreline, the community in which I live and raise my family! It is always my goal to treat all my patients like my own family. I am determined to create a friendly and welcoming environment that is committed to providing the highest caliber of dental care to all my patients. I love practicing dentistry because it offers me an opportunity to be an artist, engineer, and problem solver. I am able to meet new challenges each day and figure out the best possible solution for my patients. I believe continuing education is essential to staying current and on the cutting edge of dentistry. We owe it to our patients to provide them the best care possible, and it is through continuing education that I am able to offer patients my best. I also enjoy going to dental conventions, so that I can always look for the latest technologies and most effective ways to treat my patients. In 2012, I took more than 1,100 hours of advanced educational courses and passed a rigorous test to earn Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry (MAGD award). It is an honor achieved by less than one percent of general dentists. I have to say that it was a wonderful learning journey."
