Dr. Jeremy Kato, DDS
Dr. Jeremy Kato is a dentist with a surprising range of talents. He received his dental degree from the University of Maryland, has completed special courses in implantology and orthodontics, and has done extensive dental research since 2001. But in addition to his great dentistry skills, Dr. Kato also speaks Cantonese, a language he learned while he lived in China for two years, and also worked as an EMT before he became a dentist. All of these talents show that he takes communicating with and caring for people seriously. But don’t worry, even though he’s a serious guy, he still likes to have a good time as he works with patients. When he’s not at work he volunteers at his church, spends time with his wife and four kids and enjoys outdoor activities.
