About Dr. C
I grew up in Scarborough, Ontario, attended the University of Waterloo for my undergraduate degree, then graduated as a Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Toronto in 2014.
I'm a fan of the Internet - I've benefited tremendously from the free and open flow of information. I'm confident there is demand for clarity in dentistry, because I've experienced first-hand the vast difference in the way dentistry is practised since I began my dental career. Dentistry may be a complex field to navigate for the practitioner; I empathise for how much more confusing it is for the patient. My vision with DentalTips.org is to present streamlined, objective evidence for dental treatments, so you can make better-informed decisions for your oral health. As a crypto-fan: Don't trust. Verify.
Married to my one and only sweetheart, Wendy Zhang.

About Dr. Z
On a Spring day at age 21, I received my acceptance letter to dental school, which was one of the happiest days of my life. My life changed forever - not only did I achieve my childhood dream job, but also I met the man who is now my husband: Richard Cheung.
I was born in Shanghai, grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia, attended the University of Waterloo for my undergraduate degree, then obtained my dental degree from University of Toronto in 2014.
Since graduating, I have worked at several different dental offices. One of the things I realised is that there are too many practice owners who prioritise money over care, and cut corners by providing substandard dental equipments and materials. Patients are often confused when it comes to dental treatment - a lot of times they aren't even aware of what work was done. With this website, I hope we can address your dental concerns, and point you in the right direction to ensure that your oral health is in the best hands possible.
I like gardening, designing, Sesame and all cats (I don't discriminate), hot yoga, and reading.
