On Being a Dentist
Dr. Zoe Zhaomin Huang is a gentle, experienced dentist. She loves helping her patients develop excellent oral health and beautiful smiles.
Passionate about helping her patients’ lead healthier and better lives, Dr. Huang educates each person about dental health and how it affects their overall wellness. She believes it’s important that every patient is pleased with their smile and is confident to share it. That’s why she chose to name her practice “Live & Smile”: she wants people to live happier, healthier lives and to smile comfortably.
Dr. Huang treasures the relationships she develops with her patients. She enjoys getting to know each of them during their visits, and loves learning about their families and lives.
Having once undergone extensive dental care herself, Dr. Huang understands why some people develop dental anxiety. It’s her goal, and that of everyone in the practice, to eliminate all discomfort during visits. She wants each patient to learn that a visit to Live & Smile is a positive, even enjoyable, experience.
