Always aware to keep pain levels to a zero level. Friendly. Takes time to explain treatment and the why and wherefore.

I've been coming to Dr. Lau on a friend's recommendation and I am completely satisfied with him and his amazing staff. They have been good with me about scheduling and rescheduling cleanings and other minor stuff. Also had an emergency which they were able to accommodate me right away. I used to hate going to the dentist because I always felt ripped off. Then I started going here and the prices are better than what I used to pay. These guys are awesome!

I absolutely love this dentist office. Everyone is going nice and very gentle!

This office is amazing. I work for a company that has awesome benefits for their employees, Dr Lau's office helps me maximize those benefits so I can receive what I need. They have graciously worked with me for any out of pocket balances, which is much appreciated. ALL of the staff is very professional and very friendly and easy to talk to. Win Win for me! Thanks Dr. Lau. Cheryl Levine.

I have been going to Dr Lau for 9 years and now my family goes there as well. Best dentist ever.
in Tarzana, CA |
Horrific. My experience was that Dr Lau's practice is all about the $$ and not about your care. He'll get started with you then leave you for extended periods and takes much longer, therefore, to complete any procedure. Plan on being there a L-o-n-g time. He can be focused, but more usual is for him to be distracted and a bit careless. Don't waste your time. Too many good dentists in town.

Great dentist and staff!
in Los Angeles, CA |
Dr Lau always takes time to do the work properly. He has always explained treatment options thoroughly and answered my questions. He also has explained what is must do vs nice to do. His entire staff is friendly and knowledgeable. My whole family uses Dr. Lau and we have had implants, orthodontia, root canals...and just cleanings. I always leave with confidence and a great smile.
