Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

I recently had my 2 wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Zhang and I can honestly say that this practice is well run, friendly, and trustworthy. She took great care of me and provided a painless removal. I was worried on how my wisdom tooth procedure would affect my day in terms of exams as well as how well I would recover during school, but I was pleased to find out that the recovery was short. As a dental student in New York, everything in that office from the x-ray machines to the staff was high quality and the procedure done (starting from the anesthetic to the extraction) was flawless. For anyone looking to get wisdom teeth removed (especially college students), or any other dental procedure done, GO TO DR. ZHANG!

Dr. Zhang is not only professional and knowledgeable, but also a terrific person. She took great care of me and got my dental care up-to-date in no time. The staff are wonderful and very polite. I actually enjoy my time in their very clean facility and am never nervous about my upcoming appointments. If you are looking for a great dentist, I would highly recommend Dr. Zhang.

I’ve been a client at Beacon Dental for many years, and I am more than happy with my care and results. Today is Day 1 of my InvisAlign treatment, and I am fully confident that my smile will be on display for a long time when it’s done. Dr. Zhang continues to be the most professional, knowledgeable and attentive dentist I have worked with. Her work has truly transformed my smile and my confidence over the years.

I remember, when I first entered the Beacon Dental Center about 2 years ago, I was so tense. However, when the office manager greeted me with a big smile in the waiting room, my fear was gone. Then, a dental hygienist, Mariya asked me to the operatory, and started to do x-ray. It was so quick and comfortable, as I had never experienced before. I was amused by the new technology. It was the digital x-ray that requires about 60% less radiation that the regular one. My teeth appeared on the computer in size of the computer. Then, the dental hygienist explained me about tartar, periodontal pockets, and bone loss. She checked my gums, told me that I don’t have periodontal disease, and started dental cleaning. It was very gentle, no pain at all. Then, Dr. L. Zhang did the exam. I had no cavities, but I had an empty space for years that I didn’t like. It was visible when I smiled, and no previous doctor suggested me to do something about it. Dr. Zhang recommended me to get an implant. First, I was scared, but it was done in such professional way, and looked so natural that now I can smile wide with confidence. I am very satisfied with the professional treatment I received at the Beacon Dental Center, and I am very thankful to the doctor and the staff for that.

Dr. Zhang has been our family’s dentist for over 20 years. She is an excellent doctor who takes great care of our dental problems, especially I had so many dental problems that required complete treatment. She is the one I trust most! Also her office manager Mr. Sheng is a great manager who is very helpful and accommodating, great customer service skills! We are grateful for all the care Beacon Dental offered to our family!

Dr Zhang and her team are excellent. I’ve received cleanings, a night guard, and fillings from them over the past 3 years. Prior to seeing Dr Zhang I did not go to a dentist for a few years. Dr Zhang did a great job on my composite fillings and I hope that they last many years. They have new technology like the 3D scanner to get a mold of your teeth and a camera to see cavities easily. Dr Zhang and get team are also very personable and take the time to ask about my husband and our life. I highly recommend seeing Dr Zhang.

Wei L. from Theatre District, Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I got four wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Zhang two weeks ago, all the staff in the dental center were very friendly, trustworthy and attentive. For the surgery, Dr. Zhang showed her proficiency and patience during the whole process. I had the partial anesthesia before performing removal, I was actually awake for the whole process but didn’t feel any pain at all! This is amazing and far beyond me expectation. Two days after the surgery, the wound got infected because I didn’t clean my teeth as instructed by Dr Zhang, she found out the situation by proactively checking back with me on WeChat. Then she called the CVS pharmacy near my home right away to send the antibiotics prescription to there. This helped me to recover from that constant fever, which I think it’s the typical symptom of infection. Remember to follow what Dr. Zhang tells you, and the rest is to enjoy the treatment from her.

This is the second time Rhiannon did my teeth cleaning. She is a very friendly, caring professional. She made some very useful suggestions both times. I have already benefited from her suggestions. She is one of the best! Thank you Rhiannon! I also want to thank Dr. Zhang. She is the best dentist I had and I have followed her for more than 25 years.

Due to moving and busy schedule, I was not able to see a dentist for awhile, so I was pretty nervous about my visit. Dr. Zhang put me at ease – she was very thorough, professional and thoughtful throughout my consultation and filling sessions. You can tell that she really cares about her patients. The front desk people are friendly as well. I am very happy to have found Dr. Zhang!

Jinnu K. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


Amazing & friendly staff. A very skilled and compassionate dentist. I have been to many dental offices in my life and this place gave me one of the best experiences ever with Dr. Zhang; she knows everything you could know about dentistry and customer service. I will definitely be back to this office!

Dr. Zhang has been taken care of my teeth for more than 20 years. I had many problems years ago, but now they are healthy. I would not miss a single appointment, doing regular cleaning and checkup is the way to go. Dr. Zhang’s service is superb and the location is convenient. I am happy to stick around as long as I can.

I have been seeing Dr. Zhang for almost 15 years, from regular teeth cleaning to root canal, crown and most recently my first dental implant. Dr. Zhang has always taken care of all my dental needs and problems. She is very friendly, attentive, caring and has excellent skills. Her office is clean and the staffs made me feel comfortable every time I was there. They followed up to make sure I was doing ok after each procedure. Can’t be more happier with Dr. Zhang.

I don’t understand why this clinic was rated so low. Dr. Zhang is fantastic – she is attentive and truly cares for her patients. All the staff are super friendly and accomodating. I like that the wait time after check-in is typically much shorter than other dental clinics I’ve been to. Also, this is one of the few offices that open on Saturdays, which gives a lot of flexibility in my weekday schedule.

Dr Zhang and her office staff are exceptional. I’ve been a client for two years now, my appointments have always been on schedule, my dental insurance coverage has been well managed (no unexpected surprises) and any personal individual costs exceeding coverage have always been as originally quoted and at a very fair price. I am most impressed by the quality and wide area of dental services provided directly by Dr Zhang. I was in need of a large amount of restorative dentistry, from gum issues to implants and crowns and I’d rate the quality of work as exceptional (my teeth haven’t felt this good in years)

Kevin Z. from Sharon, MA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Beacon Dental Center for many years now and it has always been a great customer experience. I used to have an underbite before I started going to Beacon Dental Center and after getting my braces done at Beacon I can truly say that I love my smile now. I now go a couple times a year to get my teeth cleaned and they consistently do an amazing job at that. Also, the staff has always been very friendly. They are extremely helpful in answering any questions you might have, and they also provide you with magazines and Wifi access while you wait in the waiting room. Overall, this place is a fantastic dental center and I would recommend it to all my friends.

Not only is Beacon Dental Center in an ideal area and easily accessible by the T (Green-C, Englewood Ave). It is also an amazing dental practice. The staff is very competent and friendly. Dr. Zhang, a general dentist, hires only the best hygienists and dental assistants. She, herself, is very knowledgeable and tries to give you the best results possible. The office manager, Tao, is also very knowledgeable about various dental insurances and what they offer. Years of running this practice together have created a flawless process between Dr. Zhang and Tao. I’ve had a great experience with Beacon Dental Center for years. They’ve been my life long dentist. They make sure you come for your 6-month cleaning and any other recall appointments needed. I’m prone to cavities so reminding me to come back for an appointment is wonderful. They also will email 2 weeks in advance before your scheduled appointment as a reminder and to confirm that you are able to make the appointment. As a college student, email reminders are key to make sure I keep my teeth clean. (As a plus, the dental clinic is in an ideal location for college students being very close to BC and BU.) Dr. Zhang has recently purchased a new instrument that detects cavities in their early stages, so you can get them filled before more damage is made and pain starts. You may think that you’re spending too much money on early and tiny cavities, but in the long run you’ll save money by getting them filled early on and reducing the chances of a possible root canal. I’ve also gotten braces there and they were done very well. She makes sure you come back regularly so she can monitor the progress your teeth are making. While I got traditional braces, she also does clear trays. Dr. Zhang is an amazing dentist. I highly recommend her for people of all ages and for families. She tries to get the best results while trying to give you the best prices as well. The staff and her can also speak Mandarin and Cantonese. COME HERE! Schedule an appointment! No one likes yucky teeth. 😀

I have visit the clinic couple of times during this Covid year. the waiting room and the exam room are very clean with professional air filter constant running. Dr. Zhang carefully check my tooth and thoroughly clean and treated my tooth. I feel safe and confident to visit at Beacon Dental Center. Keep teeth healthy is a Have too.

Dr. Zhang is very caring and precise. The whole office is very friendly. Exceptional Dental experience. My favorite thing which was surprising at the time was when she asked if I wanted nova Caine for my fillings, she then asked if we could start without it and if I was worried about pain during the fillings, she would use it. I was unsure and paying close attention to sensation and realized that nova Caine had never been an option before, dentists in the past just did it. I walked out with a not numb mouth and no pain. I opted for no nova Caine for my remaining fillings next time too.

I have had some very negative experiences with another dentist in Brookline BUT Dr. Zhang is simply THE BEST! She takes the time to explain options and what is and is not covered by insurance. I knew I was going to need at least one extraction and it ended up that I needed three. I have never had one before and her expertise was obvious as there was very little pain once the numbness had gone. There was also no swelling, bruising or paint the following morning. I am so glad I have found a dentist that I can trust and continue to go to for years to come!!!

Nate G. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Unfortunately started suffering from a toothache while visiting family on the east coast. I found Beacon Dental after some googling and was lucky they had an appointment available! The office staff was really helpful and sympathetic in setting up something last minute and I was only in the waiting area for about 5 minutes before being called in. After the examination they suggested I’ve been grinding my teeth in my sleep, which I’d never have guessed. Just glad it wasn’t something worse, but they advised me on night guards for teeth and the pain has definitely diminished since I started using them. I won’t be back most likely since I’m not from the area, but a really solid place!

I just got one of my wisdom teeth pulled out. This is my first time to see a dentist in Boston area. First of all, DR. ZHANG IS AMAZING!!! She is professional, patient, friendly, and very very powerful(when it comes to pulling out your tooth). The staff here are nice and helpful. They actually keep their appointments well scheduled!!! There is literally no waiting time!!! This is something you can barely experience in New York City. Calling all the Boston area students (especially Chinese students), guys, this is the place you want to go when you need dental works!!!

My family have been with Dr. Zhang for many years and are very happy with our experiences. Very friendly staff and first class equipment. Dr. Zhang is very caring, gentle and considerate, would discuss with me about the procedures so I can choose the ones I am most comfortable with. And her skills are excellent. The bridges she built for me 20 years ago are still in perfect condition, which is why I am staying with her.

I was among the first group of patients with Dr. Lihua Zhang when she started her clinic more than 20 years ago and I am still her patient today. Dr. Zhang is very professional, skillful and trustful. She is an excellent dentist with a sweet and gentle personality. The office manager is also very helpful when scheduling our appointments.

I’ve been going to Dr. Zhang for the past 16 years and couldn’t recommend her enough! She’s taken amazing care of me and my teeth from childhood to now. My braces were done by her and were only on for 10 months–it was quick and effective. I recently got my wisdom teeth removed by her and had no swelling or pain afterwards. I was shocked! Not only is she great, but so is the staff!
