Dr. John Chao
Smile Talk is innovative, informative and entertaining. Since its inception in February 2009, Dr. Chao’s popular radio show has received enthusiastic reviews not only by the general public, but also by leaders and prominent scientists in the dental profession. Dr. Chao’s approach that “a little bit of sugar makes the medicine go down” has served to attract a vast audience throughout the Southland. Sugar in the form of humor and lighthearted banter along with simple language has made Smile Talk a favorite program for an ever-expanding audience.
Dr. Chao and his popular co-host Sal Gaytan have been able to draw out the personal, warm, interesting sides of guests on his show, which have included well-respected leaders, educators and scientists as well as members of the general public and patients. Without exception the guests have been well-received by Dr. Chao’s regular audience, which spans across Los Angeles and Orange County.
