Dr. Charles T. Kao 

Board Certified Pediatric Dentist 

Dr. Kao received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from UCLA in 2000 then continued to train at Boston University to specialize in pediatric dentistry.  During his two-year residency program, Dr. Kao gained extensive clinical experiences at the university, hospital and community-based clinical facilities.

After completing his residency, Dr. Kao became an associate doctor at the Central Coast Pediatric Dental Group in Salinas for three years prior to opening First Smile Pediatric Dentistry.

Dr. Kao is an active participant in our community. He is a Continue Education provider to other dental professionals, offers free dental screening to underprivileged children in our community through Give Kids a Smile project, and volunteers at local schools to educate young children on the importance of healthy teeth.

I have been a part of Dr. Kao’s amazing team since 2016. I enjoy working with my colleagues and caring for my patient in such a fun and kid friendly environment. I’m drawn to pediatrics because I want to help children overcome their fear and feel comfortable visiting the dentist. When I’m not working, you can find me drinking a milk tea. (:

I first started working for Dr. Kao in October 2018 as an Administrative Assistant then became a Dental Assistant in March 2019. I really love to work with all the staff, have a laugh with the patients and parents, and learn new things every day. Out of work, I love to spend time with friends, explore new places, and try new foods.
