About Dr. Chao
John C. Chao, D.D.S., M.A.G.D
Faculty, USC School of Dentistry
Dr. Chao’s extensive and in-depth knowledge of every specialty allows him to diagnose your condition accurately and often offers you unique solutions that you would not easily find anywhere else. (See Special Qualifications at
left column). His induction as a Master of the Academy of General Dentistry is just one example of the many awards and accreditations he has received over the years. He has a widespread reputation as a lecturer and teacher both
to undergraduate and postgraduate students. (See Professional Associations and Lectures in left column). The main reason he has served as faculty at the USC School of Dentistry is that he believes the best way to learn more
is to teach. He incorporates stringent academic standards of diagnosis and treatment to his private practice. For example, he examines each patient from every relevant aspect, which generally takes one hour, or more. Dr.
Chao always offers patients treatment plans that will suit their lifestyle, finances and their immediate or long term needs. His patients are encouraged to choose freely the treatment plan that best suits their particular
priorities and sensibilities.
