Meet Jerry Yao, DDS
Family Dentist in Pleasant Hill CA
I feel blessed to have the opportunity to help improve and maintain my patients’ oral health. I thank my patients for their trust, but earning their trust is what I strive to do every day. My profession is unique in that I have a chance to work with so many different people: various age groups, races, religions, and occupations. I learn things from every patient I meet and truly believe I am a better person because of the relationships I’ve made with them.
Providing care that is both effective and comfortable is something very personal to me. As a child, the dental care I received was often painful and completed without the benefit of anesthesia. These experiences provided a contrast to the way I choose to treat my own patients: with compassion and a true dedication to their comfort.
Education & Continuing Education
I graduated from the University of the Philippines College of Dentistry in 1985. After working in the dental field for ten years, I established my own practice in 1995. The modern advancements in dentistry are exciting; we have and will continue to improve our dental services in this digital age. In order to stay on the cutting edge of these advancements, I regularly attend the annual American Dental Association and biennial California Dental Association scientific session meetings, in addition to lectures and workshops given by world-renowned practitioners.

Outside The Office
Born and raised in the Philippines, I moved to California in 1986 and currently reside in the Bay Area with my wife, Natalie. When I’m not creating healthy smiles in the office, I enjoy photography, outdoor sports, playing golf, exploring the beautiful area in which I live, and traveling.
