I’m so thankful I found Dr. Lau! He and his staff are very kind and personable, and he made my wisdom tooth extraction painless. I’ve had a lifelong phobia of getting dental treatment, but I consider myself cured after going to Dr. Lau. Amazing!

State of the art dentistry!! Dr Lau and his staff are amazing. The most thorough and thoughtful cleaning I’ve ever had. My teeth have never felt this smooth. He scraped off excess filling that my other dentist in SF missed, on 3 separate visits. I thought the roughness was just apart of my teeth!!!! Thanks Dr Lau!

Dr, Lau has been mine and my husband's dentist for several years now. I had an urgent situation over the weekend and left him a message on Saturday knowing the office was closed. He called me that same evening and scheduled an appointment for Monday morning. The quality and level of his work is excellent. He is concerned about the overall health of his patients. He has an excellent support Team working with him as well. I highly recommend his dental skills.

Dr. Lau so great with kids!! His staff is superb and office is inviting and clean. Lots of modern technology. It’s a fun experience to visit here for my 3.5 year old. And she doesn’t like the doctor. Parking is easy and free. Highly recommend.

Dr. Lau is amazing! By far the best dentist I have ever been to. He explains everything thoroughly and gives you several options if additional treatments are necessary. He is also incredibly smart and keeps up on the latest information. I’m very glad I found him. The dental hygienist and front office staff are very kind and helpful as well. An overall great experience.
