Cosmetic Dentistry

Chipped or missing tooth? We do bonding/white filling, bridges, whitening, and veneers. Emergencies welcomed!


Implant Dentistry

Includes the placement of implants and the restoration that follows about 4 months later. We use only the highest quality Nobel Biocare implants to ensure fully functional and natural-looking teeth.


Family Dentristy

Covers most general dental procedures including fillings, crowns, periodontal treatment, root canal treatment, and dentures. We take children as well as adults!



Crooked teeth? We can straighten them with Damon self-ligating brackets (which are much better than traditional braces) or Invisalign.

Our Technology

Digital X-Rays

Committed to the safety of our patients we decided to invest in a low-radiation, high quality X-Ray machine. With our brand new Planmeca X-Ray machine, only two pictures are enough to reconstruct a full mouth image. Moreover, these shots are taken from outside the mouth, so the amount of radiation received is a marginal fraction as compared to traditional film-based X-rays.

External full-mouth X-rays with 9 times less radiation

Fine detailed quality image

Easy electronic image transfer to other doctors/specialists

Intra-Oral Camera

The Soprocare camera uses autofluorescence and chromatic amplification to reveal dental caries, plaque, and tartar. These imaging and amplification techniques ensure the early detection of dental problems like gingivitis. The Soprocare camera functions as both an intra-oral camera and a photographic and video documentation tool for oral exams.

Nobel Biocare Implants

We use only the highest quality implants from Nobel Biocare to ensure fully-functional, natural-looking and long-lasting implants. Made in Sweden, Nobel Biocare implants are made out of bio-compatible yet strong materials, including titanium, zirconia, alumina, cobalt chromium, and acrylic. These implants can be used in all clinical situations with all bone and tissue types, thus offering a solution for all.

High-quality biocompatible materials



Damon Brackets

Much better than traditional braces, the Damon System places less friction on the bracket by using hi-tech archwires. With Damon self-ligating brackets treatment time is reduced by between 3 and 6 months as compared to traditional braces.

Extraordinary results

Faster treatment

Fewer appointments

Greater patient comfort

What our clients have to say


Over the years, I truly enjoy the high level of professional service provided, from the moment I arrive until the moment I leave. Needless to say, I would not hesitate to recommend anyone in search of a dentist who is as attentive and knowledgeable as Dr. Ho, and an office that is as hygienically conscious, professional, and technologically advanced as the South City Smile Center. Thank you again for your care.

J.P.Oakland Resident

I have had bad experiences with dentists in my life and it made me fearful to return to most offices and only go when I absolutely had to. Everyone at Dr. Ho’s office has made me feel safe and welcome, and thus I have been returning twice yearly for my routine cleanings ever since I started there! Dr. Ho is always willing to listen to my thoughts and questions about the care he is recommending. Thank you for being so kind and patient.
