Dr. Eric S. Yao, DDS

Shoreline, WA 98133
I have been practicing dentistry for more than 20 years and have been with my current practice in Shoreline since 2003. It is always my goal to treat all my patients like my own family. In order to provide the best patient care, I believe continuing education is essential to stay current on the cutting edge of dentistry. 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. Up to this day, I still routinely go to advanced dental training courses and really enjoy them. What I love the most about dentistry, though, are the relationships I’ve developed with my patients. I enjoy coming to the office every day, chatting with patients as friends, and solving problems for them. Seeing them out of pain and smiling is the best reward for my job. It’s especially satisfying when I see all my Six Month Smiles
orthodontic patients smile beautifully and confidently after completing their orthodontic treatment! I currently teach at the University of Washington Dental School on Fridays as an affiliate professor when I am not working at the office. I enjoy giving back to my school, and teaching and mentoring the next generation of dentists. I also really enjoy going to different elementary schools to talk about dental health with kids. They always came up with the most creative questions for me. The entire staff at our office shares the same vision: treating our patients like our own family. This makes my job much easier. Each team member is friendly, experienced, knowledgeable, professional, and fun. They don’t mind making silly and entertaining birthday and holiday videos for patients. Our meetings are usually effective and full of laughter. I feel grateful to have this amazing team!
