Dr Yao graduated from the University of Queensland with honours in 2014. He worked briefly in private practice but the desire to learn more and expand his knowledge in dentistry drew him back to the university as a post-graduate research student where he worked along side our specialist Endodontist Dr Ralph Reid. He is at the forefont of endodontic research an so has a special interest in root canal treatments. He also provides the latest technology to provide patients with ceramic crowns in a single visit (same day crowns) avoiding the need for impressions.
In between treating patients and his research, he is privileged to be involved in the training of future dentists at two universities in Queensland.
He enjoys engaging with people and working clinically which makes dentistry a real joy for him.
As Yao says ” I believe dentistry is not just a trade but rather a relationship with a patient that extends far beyond teeth alone. I do enjoy getting to know you (and your family) which I feel is the only way to provide the best care possible. Preventative dentistry is important to me so feel free to ask me any questions on maintaining your oral health!”
