Welcoming all new and emergency patients from Traverse City and the surrounding Northern Michigan area. All of our staff and doctor work vigorously to provide customized dental treatment in a genuinely respectful and caring environment. We will always give you our professional opinions on all your dental decisions, but at the same time your personal goals and desires will always be part of the process.
Come and visit our office, take a tour of our facility, meet our staff and talk to our doctor to get a good feel for office before ever making an appointment.
Our office has the ability to immediately see you the day you call us for unexpected emergency situations and can also provide long term preventative care in more complicated involved procedures such as implant teeth, TMJ disorders, crowns and root canals. This is all done in a clean, modern facility with up to date equipment and magnifying TV cameras that can show you the actual problems in your mouth. There are earphones with iPods for music, movies for long procedures, nitrous gas and warm blankets for patient comfort.
Best of all, our patients tell us every day that dentistry in our office is virtually pain free and that we give the most pain free injection they've ever experienced. Many of our patients who had dental phobias or past bad dental experiences no longer live in fear of going to the dentist and that reputation and achievement is what we are most proud of.

The front staff is always friendly and helpful. The hygienist and doctor are knowledgeable. Thorough care is provided in a timely fashion.
Everyone is very nice and welcoming. My only suggestion would be to make sure the patient is fully aware, prior to their appointment, if service will be covered by their insurance, what the patient may have to pay, etc.
I have been seeing Garfield Dental group for over 7 years. Dr Chao and his staff are always friendly, cheerful and professional! They take time to listen and assess any of your dental concerns, then recommend a plan and make sure you’re comfortable with plan.
