About
Our Office

Dublin Smiles Dentistry is committed to providing high-quality, convenient dental care, and we are honored every time someone chooses our team to care for their family’s smiles. In addition to serving patients in Dublin, Tracy, and Stockton, we’re also privileged to work with patients from San Ramon, Livermore, Castro Valley, Lathrop, Lodi, Ripon, Mountain House, Linden, and Manteca.

Some of our staff members speak Spanish, Portuguese, Mandarin, and Taiwanese, so if you would prefer to speak any of these languages in our office, please let us know, and we will be happy to oblige. If there’s anything else we can do to make your visits to our practice better, all you have to do is ask!

Dr. Liao

JANICE LIAO, DMD

Dr. Janice Liao was raised in Stockton, CA, in the same neighborhood where our Stockton office is.

Dr. Liao went on to earn her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA, in 2002.

Dr. Liao then returned to California to complete a year-long General Practice Residency at University Medical Center in Fresno. She worked as an associate for Dr. Kenneth Yi in both Stockton and Tracy for six months in 2003 before establishing her home base in Dublin, CA. Dr. Liao enjoys working with patients of all ages and from all different dental backgrounds.

Dr. Shiao

GEORGE SHIAO, DMD

Dr. George Shiao was born in Taiwan and raised in Dallas, TX, so he is a big Cowboys fan! He attended Cistercian Preparatory School in Irving, Texas, before graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in history and biology from Washington University in St. Louis in 1995. In 1999, Dr. Shiao earned his Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Temple University.

Following graduation, Dr. Shiao worked in private practice in Pennsylvania and New Jersey while also serving as a clinical instructor at Temple’s dental school. He spent the next several years performing comprehensive oral rehabilitation for special needs patients at Special Smiles in Philadelphia. Dr. Shiao moved to California and practiced in the Bay Area shortly before marrying Dr. Liao in 2004. Dr. Shiao is also a clinical faculty member at the UOP School of Dentistry. He looks forward to working with you and your family!

Comfortable Office Amenities

Our office was designed with your comfort in mind. Little details like aromatherapy and complimentary blankets take experiences in our office from average to exceptional.

State-of-the-Art Dental Technology

Providing the exceptional, modern dental services that we offer wouldn’t be possible without the up-to-date dental equipment and methods that we utilize in our office.

  • Air Abrasion — used instead of dental drills to remove tooth decay faster, more precisely, and with less noise.

  • Digital X-Rays — emit less radiation and capture clear, high-quality images that lead to faster diagnoses and treatments.

  • CEREC® Same-Day Crowns — can be designed, created, and permanently placed over a tooth in one convenient appointment.

  • Intraoral Camera — shows our team and the patient an up-close view of the patient’s teeth, gums, and the inside of their mouth.

  • Isolite System — provides the patient with a place to rest their jaw while suctioning saliva and providing extra light for the dentist.

  • Soft-Tissue Laser Therapy — used to treat periodontal disease. Soft-tissue lasers are very precise and help patients heal faster.
