Dr. Yau is a very professional, knowledgeable and caring dentist. My wife and I have been seeing her for the last year on several different occasions for a whole range of procedures. From the simplest cleaning to the more advanced deep cleaning, cavities, crowns, implants and whitening so far. Her staff is so personable, and she is definitely the dentist to come to if you want to feel as though someone truly cares about your dental health

My fill-in came off my front tooth so decided to go online and find an affordable dentist . That’s how I discovered Elite Dental . As soon as I walked in I was greeted and given all my paperwork to fill out . I was quickly called inside for Dr. To see . Everything was explained in detail without making it one bit complicated .I consider this to be the best experience at a dental office in my 28 years of age . I Highly recommend this place to all my family and friends.

Great dentist! She patiently explains the process so you can understand what she’s doing, but works quickly too. Pretty short wait time as well. I was afraid of seeing a dentist for the longest time, but she made it a smooth experience. Thank you Dr. Yau!

Dr. Yay is the BEST!! I’m only afraid of ONE thing…that’s seeing the dentist. However, Dr. Yay and her staff have eased my anxiety and given me a trust in dentists I’ve never had before. She goes above and beyond to ease your fears and anxiety. She explains any procedure being done and follow up care is phenomenal. I would recommend Dr. Lucia Yay to anyone…friend, family, or anyone looking for a great dentist.

When I moved to OC a few years ago I needed to find a new dentist so a co-worker suggested I go see her dentist Dr. Yau because she was great. Well, my co-worker was so right! Dr. Yau and her entire staff are so great! I feel so comfortable with them and all the work I get done is always good and not painful at all. Thank you for always treating me so well!!

I’m so scared of the dentist and I went in here for X-rays and consultation and I swear this doctor and the assistant made me feel so peaceful I need to get work done and i am so happy that I was recommended to this dentist office by one of my friends!!!! I’m so excited and looking forward to this visit and the work!! Amazing staff!!!

I usually do not post comments ,but I had to this time, I have been coming to this office for about 4 years and have nothing but good things to say about Dr Yau and  all of her staff , very easy to set up appointment times that work for us. I highly recommend  elite dental care.

Dr. Yau is a wonderful, patient, gentle dentist. She is great with our son who got his braces with her. Her staff are very friendly and kind as well. When we have had to have work done she has done an excellent job.

I’m 55 and have had more than one dentist in my time. Dr. Lucia is by far the best dentist I’ve had. She has replaced every filling and a cap that all the other dentist put in and in my opinion has done it easier and better and she never complains about my insurance unlike my other dentist. Easy 5 Star Dentist!

Dr. Yau and her staff are extraordinary.  The office is clean. Dr. Yau is a wonderful dentist and a great human. I recently had a root canal.. She explains the procedure very clearly and follows up with you once your procedure has been completed.  She is honest and does not upsell you on services one does not need. I highly recommend Dr. Yau. You will not be disappointed.

Dr. Yau is very kind, patient and thorough. My daughter had her wisdom tooth removed at another dental office. She was having severe pain and while her dentist would do nothing of it Dr. Yau was able to  see her on the same day I called and has been taking great care of her. Her staff is amazing as well. Very nice and welcoming.

My lastest cleaning appointment included replacing a broken childhood silver filling. In the past I’ve always been nervous about the shot and the drilling, but it actually went extremely well. I had minimal discomfort if any. I bet you don’t hear that from the Dentist chair too often. I was pleasantly surprised, and glad I chose to have it completed in the same appointment. =o)

I just finished having intense dental work completed at Elite Dental and can say for sure that I am a life-long patient! I had not been to a dentist in many years due to financial concerns and also severe dental anxiety; Dr. Yau and her staff was so nice to work with me on both areas. Also I work long night shift hours and have trouble getting and KEEPING appointments… they helped me get morning appointments when I needed them and were so nice to me the day I forgot to show up because I had my days of the week mixed up! Last but not least, Dr. Yau has great chair-side manner and is great with injections when needed (her staff actually holds your hand:)Overall, I had a great experience

Vashti S. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was looking for a dentist because I needed work done. I went to a few different offices for a consultation but they were too expensive and I just was not happy with the staff. Thn I was referred by my boyfriend to try Dr. Yau because tht’s where he had gone before. So I did. Dr Yau was absolutely amazing. She explained everything thoroughly. She was down to earth. And her rates were awesome! Not only tht, but I was able to do payments for my braces. Her staff is SO nice and helpful as well. I go to her for any work needed. They certainly knw me by name. Plus she’s very flexible on her hours available. Always convenient for someone like myself who works a lot! Great work and friendly staff,…. I recommend Dr. Yau.

Dr. Yau and the whole Elite Dental staff are all awesome! My wife and I are relatively new to the area and were looking at dentists in the area that took our insurance. She had one of the best ratings on Yelp and Google and she was one of the only dentists opened on Saturday. She is very personable and makes her patients feel comfortable. Looks like we’ve found our new dentist!
