Dr. Sharon Shao
Dr. Sharon Shao grew up in Vancouver and graduated from the University of British Columbia Faculty of Dentistry. During her time at dental school, she participated in a number of dental volunteer trips, oral surgery externship in New York City and was the organizer of student-run dental clinic in the downtown eastside and New Westminster. Upon graduation she practiced general dentistry and provided much needed dental care in underserved communities in Saskatchewan. She worked with many patients suffering from pain, tooth decay and fear of dentistry; this had made a great impact on her practice philosophy. She developed a very gentle touch and believes that every patient deserves a great smile, pain free!
Dr. Shao strives to educate and empower her patients to make the best decision for themselves. She is compassionate, gentle and meticulous. She is passionate in the areas of cosmetic dentistry and restoring facial esthetics with Botox. She also loves working with children and making the dental visit a fun and educational experience for them.
Dr. Shao currently resides in Vancouver with her husband and two young daughters. Outside of work, she enjoys yoga, cooking and spending time outdoors with her family.
I have been working with Dr Wise for 3 years now. I love the variety of dentistry we do here at the office. I especially like assisting with the IV sedations and seeing the huge change in our patient’s smiles when they are doing Invisalign.
I have been working here at Dr. Wise's since 2008. You may see me up at the front, assisting Dr. Wise or doing hygiene as I have my Dental Hygiene degree. I love working here as we are a real team, and have really amazing patients. Remember there's nothing like a beautiful smile.
I'm the hygienist on Monday, Tuesday Wednesday and Saturday's. I began working in this office 31 years ago, and joined Dr. Wise's team 13 years ago. We value our long-term patients and love meeting the new patients who come to our practice. This is truly a great and relaxing environment to work in, and I know that makes it just as relaxing for you the patient.
