Dr. Gu not only has over 15 years of experience as a board-certified Oral Surgeon, he also was trained at the Malo Clinic, Lisbon, Portugal, where he studied under world-renowned Dr. Paulo Malo, innovator of the All-On-4 full arch rehabilitation procedure. Dr. Gu has placed well over 6000 dental implants and performed over 800 All-On-4 arches for full mouth rehabilitation and he has trained other surgeons for All-On-4 procedures.
Dr. Gu puts his wealth of knowledge, experience, and passion into every single procedure. He treats his patients with genuine compassion. He is known for his kindness and patience toward everyone he treats because he understands dental visits can be unpleasant and even traumatic to many people. He takes his time with his patients to make sure every procedure/visit is performed as comfortably and painlessly as possible.
He practices within the full scope of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, with an emphasis on dental implants, sinus augmentation, bone grafting procedures, IV general anesthesia, full mouth rehabilitation with All-On-4, Pterygoid, Trans-sinus, Palatal approach, and Zygomatic implants. He utilizes Yomi Robotic Dental Implant technology, Intraoral scanner and 3D SprintRay printer to do minimally invasive implant surgery with extreme accuracy.
Professionally, Dr. Gu has been fortunate to participate in many charitable efforts, including trips to Columbia, South America as part of the Healing the Children Cleft Lip and Palate Outreach program and a trip to Dominican Republic to provide oral surgery care to rural areas.
