Touching Lives One Smile at a Time





Sonrisas Dental Health believes in Patient Safety. 

Our ceiling mounted patient safety lift helps patients with

special needs to receive their dental treatments in

a safe and secure way.


Karen B. (pictured above) said: “I’m your biggest fan! I have to use a lift (to help her transfer from her wheelchair) and this is wonderful for me.”

Her husband, Louie, said: “This kind of facility is so desperately needed to assist people with special needs.”   They both said: “Thank you for being here for us.”

In the words of our patients...


Carrie L. (Pt is a person with Intellectual and Development Disabilities  (IDD) and has cerebral palsy). 


Sonrisas was referred by Carrie’s Social Worker who reflected and shared these important reflections: 


Carrie’s teeth were in bad shape, I believe she only had 10 teeth.


The staff at Sonrisas were very welcoming and understanding. Dr Chau was very kind and took the time to explain to us the treatment plan that she suggested for Carrie.

Carrie was very nervous and scared of the dentist and about what was to come. She needed all her teeth removed and dentures. Dr. Chow and the staff calmed all her fears and Carrie was understanding of what was happening.

Carrie loves Dr. Chau and has no problem when I tell her we are going to the dentist. Sonrisas has been a GOD send to us. A very positive experience. Soon Carrie will have a new set of teeth and enjoy the foods she has missed. 


Sonrisas Dental, a non-profit was recommended to me by a San Mateo County Human Services Counselor. He researched non-profit dentist to cover my dental treatment while Denti-Cal was transitioning. Prior to going to Sonrisas I was going to UCSF Dental School for my dental treatment, but it was an inconvenient due to the distance and frequent appointment.

I tried Sonrisas Dental and was quite satisfied and have been singing their praises since (I have had affordable extensive dentistry). Dr. Bonnie Jue and Dr. Laurie Jue have provided excellent advice and service and have worked with my prosthodontist to restore my mouth with bridges and crowns. I needed affordable dentistry to restore my beautiful smile. Value of that cannot be overestimated.

My profound thanks goes to the staff and management of Sonrisas Dental. They are consistently my #1 choice of Dental Care in San Mateo County.
