Meet The Pleasant Hill Dental Team

Doctor who? Dr. Zhu!

Say hello to Dr. Cheng Zhu, DMD

Once upon a time, Dr. Cheng Zhu was a successful pharmacist. But he left it all behind to pursue his true calling: helping people have beautiful, healthy smiles.

Yup, that’s the real story, and it’s how you know that Dr. Zhu genuinely cares about taking care of your smile.

After making the leap from pharmacy to dentistry, Dr. Zhu earned his Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry (DMD) degree from one of the nation’s top dental institutions, the Maurice H. Kornberg School of Dentistry.

But he didn’t stop there – he went on to train in sedation dentistry at the Dental College of Georgia, and is actively involved with the American Association of Cosmetic Dentists, the Pleasant Hill Chamber of Commerce, and the Academy of General Dentistry.

Along with the 100+ hours of continuing dental education he takes each year, and his 15+ years of dentistry experience, it’s all part of Dr. Zhu’s focus on providing you with safe, comfortable and effective dental care.

“I had a wonderful experience with my dental work. Very friendly, very attentive and caring staff. This is now my new dentist. Thank you so much Pleasant Hill Dental, God bless.”

Dentistry that supports full-body health

Dr. Zhu may not be a pharmacist anymore, but he still uses his education and years of experience with medicine and the human body to provide you with safer, holistic dental care that supports your health from head to toe.

All that knowledge goes into making sure each patient’s dental care and medicinal needs are totally aligned – which is especially valuable for Pleasant Hill Dental’s older patients!

Taking the stress out of visiting the dentist

There aren’t many dentists in California who are licensed to deliver IV conscious sedation dentistry – but Dr. Zhu is one of them.

That means if you’ve been steering clear of visiting the dentist, Dr. Zhu can provide a completely pain and anxiety-free option for you to receive the dental care you need. It’s just one more way that he’s committed to helping everyone in Pleasant Hill have healthy, great-looking teeth.

Making the latest bells and whistles work for you

Dental equipment vendors have a love/hate relationship with Dr. Zhu. Why? Because, while he’s a great customer who’s always keeping an eye out for new dental technologies, he’s also incredibly thorough. 

Translation? If Dr. Zhu signs off on a new piece of equipment for Pleasant Hill Dental, you can be sure that it’ll provide you with treatment that isn’t just safe and effective, but also quick and comfortable.
