Why Peartree Dental?

At Peartree Dental, we treat every patient with trust, respect, and compassion. Our educated and experienced team has been providing quality dental care for residents of Ellicott City for nearly 11 years. Our patients are like our extended family, and we've designed every aspect of our practice to show it.

In our experience, treating every patient the same leads to less than exceptional dental care. We know that each patient has different needs and goals for oral health, so Dr. Zhou makes it a priority to tailor each patient's care to their unique situation. When you leave Peartree Dental Care, we want you to be completely informed about your dental health and confident in the decisions you’ve made to achieve and maintain your healthy smile.


Comprehensive Dentistry

Your oral health is often a direct reflection of your overall health. Recently, scientists have begun to unravel the complex relationship between our mouths and the rest of our bodies. They've found that the condition of our teeth and gums directly correlates to our cardiovascular, respiratory, and even immune health. Regular checkups and cleanings with a skilled and compassionate dentist like Ellicott City dentist Dr. Michael Zhou can not only whiten your smile but also help you enjoy a lifetime of great oral and overall health.

Our practice is tailored to meet your specific needs and take your goals into consideration. We aim to identify problems early and address them thoroughly as opposed to offering less complete treatment that will eventually lead to larger problems. Our comprehensive dental care addresses everything from health of your bite to facial structure along with oral health and aesthetics. We take pride in educating our patients about what’s best for their current situation. Our services include preventive, restorative, cosmetic and periodontal (gum) health.


We Look Forward to Meeting You!

  • "Had a partial tooth break on a Friday night. Had a walk-in on Saturday for a temp crown followed by a crown less than 10 days later.  Couldn't have been in better hands.  There quick and prompt service has alleviated many of my fears of dentistry."
  • "Dr. Zhou and his team  are extremely attentive and professional. I have had a lot of dental work over the years, and Dr. Zhou is the first to take the time to explain options and procedures so as to give me the best available information to make decisions and to address any concerns. I especially appreciate his care and attentiveness on every procedure no matter how simple or complicated. I have become a long-time patient, even though I live in DC - Pear Tree Dental is more than worth the trip. I highly recommend Dr. Zhou!"
  • "Dr. Zhou and his staff have been exceptional since I became a patient back in May 2016. I went for a routine cleaning back in May and just recently, Dr. Zhou fixed a chipped tooth that needed some work. I was extremely pleased with the work he did and regained some confidence in my smile for my upcoming wedding on October 1 :) I found Dr. Zhou to be very personable, knowledgeable and professional when dealing with him throughout all aspects of his practice. I can say that in my short experience with Dr. Zhou and his staff, they care about the wellbeing of their patients which is not something I have experienced in other Dental offices. I highly recommend Peartree Dental for your dental experience! You won't be disappointed!"
