Dr. Lau's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Lau "Dr. Gary Lau attended the UCLA School of Dentistry where he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, orthodontic specialty certificate, and Masters in Oral Biology. Recognized for his clinical skill, integrity, and leadership abilities, he was selected by his colleagues and faculty to serve as chief resident. Dr. Lau continues to support the UCLA School of Dentistry through donations and by teaching an annual course to the orthodontic residents. Dr. Lau loves orthodontics for the artistry, science and technical ability required to achieve a beautiful and functional result. If you were to ask him what he would be if not an orthodontist, he would say an architect for all the same reasons mentioned. Above all, he loves the interaction with his patients and the reward of the beautiful and confident smiles when the braces come off!"
