Dr. Chao's history with science and dental care began as a specially trained pharmacy technician during his high school days in Los Angeles. Following graduation from high school he went on to study Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of California at Berkeley. A desire to help others and further his education led him to the University of Southern California School of Dentistry. For continuing education Dr. Chao studied implant placement and restoration at University of California at Los Angeles.
During his last two years of the dental program, Dr. Chao received recognition for his role as a mentor to other dental students at the USC Mobile Dentistry Clinic, a group that provided dental care for elementary school children in nine school districts in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. Concurrent with his course work he also joined "Ayuda", ("Help" in Spanish), a group that went to Mexico to provide dental care to patients in need.
While he truly enjoyed working for other dentists in Tucson, Dr. Chao felt the urge to get more involved in his community, and as a Sahuarita resident, the transition to a Green Valley practice seemed like the logical next step. Dr. Chao opened Desert Villa Dental in March 2006.
Today Dr. Chao and his team are happy to assist their community members in achieving their perfect smile dreams. Dr. Chao has had extensive training in all aspects of general and cosmetic dentistry, including veneers, implants, root canals, and more.
