Dr. Bao is honestly the best dentist I think I’ve ever had in my life. He’s incredibly thorough with his work.

It’s wonderful to have a dentist who’s not only incredibly skilled but who treats your work, with his 100%. I had a lot of work done, and he nailed each part!! I’ve never had such a good experience at a dentist’s. Somehow, even with all the work he did, I don’t think I ever felt any significant pain or discomfort. It was like magic.

I had crowns done, and he made sure I was 100% satisfied with the exact color. His English is GREAT. And he’s happy to communicate and explain everything to you with patience and personal attention.

His prices are very reasonable, and he’s not the type to try and take advantage of you. You can feel the from him, and that’s the most important thing.”

Da Nang is a noble city for special dishes. Here are 5 must-try cuisines in Da Nang: Cao Lau, Mi Quang, Banh Xeo, Banh Mi and Nem Lui.
