Dr. Yuchen (Cherry) Gao

Growing up in Edmonton, Dr. Cherry Gao attended the University of Alberta, where she obtained both her Bachelor of Medical Sciences and her Doctor of Dental Surgery. During her studies in dental school, she volunteered at the Boyle McCauley Health Centre SHINE Dental Clinic and travelled to Morropón, Peru for a dental mission. She has completed continuing education courses in Endodontics and Periodontics.

Dr. Gao strongly believes in a patient-centered approach to the practice of dentistry. She takes the time to understand patient needs and aims to improve their oral healthcare beyond their time in the dental chair. As with all aspects of healthcare, she believes that prevention is the best treatment, so she is passionate about patient education. She performs all aspects of general dentistry and enjoys working with patients of all ages. She is fluent in English, Mandarin Chinese and despite being a little rusty, she also understands some French.

Outside of work, Dr. Gao loves spending time outdoors hiking, camping, and skiing. She also loves discovering new eateries and bakeries around town, so any recommendations are always welcome!

Kind words from our Patients

My first visit at Glenwood Dental Care was great! All the staff I encountered on my visit were professional, friendly, caring and took their time to get to know me while providing excellent dental service!

Dr. Gao is awesome. Im very impressed with the care she provided on my first day. She explained details to me that my previous dentist did not do, now I have better understanding with what’s going on with my teeth. I would highly recommend coming to this dental clinic 👍

I’ve been going to Glenwood Dental Care for 2 years and can’t say enough good things about them. Dr Gao and her team maintain a professional yet relaxed atmosphere in their office which sure lowered any apprehension I had about dental visits. My questions and concerns are addressed, the appointments are well coordinated and they communicate directly with insurance companies. I’ll definitely continue to use them for my dental work.
