Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Andrea B. from Azusa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Our family was in search of a new dentist office one that we could find trust, comfort and transparency with. After reviewing websites from  insurance, google and yelp I was impressed with all the wonderful comments posted on these sites. The test would be my own intuition with a phone call. I called the office and spoke to Christine. I explained to her that I was in search of a new dentist after leaving our old dentist  of 20 years. Immediately Christine made me feel comfortable with her understanding of my concerns and what I was looking for in a dentist office. I so appreciated her patience with me and answering all my questions. I felt so comfortable I didn’t hesitate to book introduction appoints for my family. The first two family members attended their dental appointments and they both came home ranting and raving about their experience and how thorough Dr Elaine Lu was. My youngest daughter and I attended our appoints and our experience was outstanding.  I was beyond pleased and I can’t say enough about the excellent customer service, bedside manner and transparency of this office. Thank you for making us feel welcome Christine, Dora and Dr Lu. A special thanks to the staff for your congratulations card to my daughter who graduated from college. We are extremely pleased

The folks at Healthy Life Dental are always so helpful and accommodating. They understood how embarrassing it was for my son who had just started high school not to have the flipper for his missing front tooth. So they did everything they could to get it back quickly and fit him in immediately for the fitting. I really appreciate that kind of understanding from the whole staff.

Alex N Grace V. from Monrovia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have always HATED going to the dentist. I have had several bad experiences with dentists and therefore avoided going for quite some time and therefore needed to see one desperately, but was afraid to go.  After doing some research I found Dr. Lu.  Since the moment you walk in you are put at ease by their wonderfully friendly receptionist Gloria who helps you through the whole initial process, and deals with your insurance.   What I loved and am truly appreciative of is that as many issues as I had Dr. Lu & her staff never made me feel self-conscious, they just treated them, with efficiency and little to no discomfort.  Love her for that. Believe it or not both my husband and I LOVE going to the dentist now, even when we have a cavity!!!  Thank you ladies, you are all amazing!!

Ji K. from Fremont, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just moved here in SoCal a few months ago so I dont have a reliable dentist yet. One time i was in intense pain and i just decided to pull the tooth out so i tried to look for good dentists around me. I searched for places where pain is not present and i saw the reviews on Healthy life dental. I called their office and gloria is a sweetheart so i just went there right after i called. Dr. Lu didnt pulled my tooth the same day because i need to take some medications first so i did what she said. Next day i went they pulled my tooth and i would say it was painless. I will recommend Dr. Lu to anyone because she has a soft hand and she really knows what she’s doing. Kudos to the staff and of course Dr. Lu!

Glez L. from La Puente, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve had about 5 dentists in my life and  honestly Dr. Elaine Lu is the best!!! After my first pregnancy I started to have alot of issues with my teeth, that go from cavities to root canals. One of my crowns had bothered me ever since the first day they put it on. Three dentists try to fix it and I got so use to feeling pain that I stopped caring about it.  I’m pretty sure they did their best but for me it didn’t got any better until now!!!! Dr. Lu did a great job with my crown and now I don’t event feel like I have one.
I don’t live close to her office but its definitely worth the drive. The customer service its outstanding (in most places it isn’t) and Dr. Lu has a gift, I don’t know how to say it, but she is a natural. I still can’t believe that my crown feels so good. For about 8 years I had to keep up with the pain, and finally it is over

This is my first post on Yelp! Dr. Liu is indeed a very good dentist!  Good hands. I wanted to get a crown for two teeth that had sizeable fillings to be replaced, plus a possible crack in one of the teeth that had a bad filling.  She said the best conservative approach was to replace the fillings even though they were a good size.  In and out of the chair in a breeze. Staff is very good, and Gloria the main receptionist is a sweetheart.  Place is clean and very modern.  They are open on Saturdays, a good thing because traffic on the 210 can be a monster if you don’t live in the area. My other dentist was nearing retirement, and frankly he did a procedure on my teeth that I did not ask for and he did not really fully explained what he was doing.   Sooo, had to find another dentist, and Dr. Liu will be it!  I have a lot of teeth issues, so I hope I will not have to change again

Chen W. from Monrovia, CA (Source: Yelp)


If you are tired of repeated work done on the same tooth over and over again or high prices because of no dental insurance or, for that matter, hearing your dentist repeatedly saying oops, then it’s time to change your dentist.  Now I am not the type of person that has the time to properly care for my teeth so I depend on a dentist who will monitor the conditions of my chops before they decay to the point of extraction.  Healthy Life Dental has so far been the solution to my dental problem.  They provide insurance to lower the cost of extensive work that would have cost me hundreds if not thousands of dollars more somewhere else.  Great job!

Tito S. from Alhambra, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Lu is a skilled dentist- I know- as a former U.S. Diplomat’s spouse, I have visited dental practices all over the world, and her natural and learned technique is second to none.  Dr. Lu did my entire exam, cleaning, and after agreeing that I had some exposed dentin on four teeth that I brushed too hard for many years,  that they could be subject to excess wear since the enamel was really thin and it could possibly lead to a cavity or worse, so I returned to Dr. Lu a week later, she did a procedure that protected the areas (4 teeth), and it is impossible to tell that any filler or work was done at all- the color and shape match was that good! Dr. Lu has the latest in dental technology, and a very nice, clean office, and she has an extremely dedicated staff, and the young lady at the check-in counter is extremely friendly, polite, and helpful.  When she found out that my U.S. Government dental insurance only pays $15 for a full x-ray, exam, and cleaning, she was able to help me with a payment plan for the four teeth that I had to have work done on- and showed me how if I pay “X” number of $$ back to the dental finance company, I would never pay any interest on the loan (it was around $500 for the four teeth, but on a fixed income, I just did not have the cash on hand).  I will easily be able to pay the $84/month to make sure that I don’t have to pay any interest. Dr. Lu’s assistant / Dental Tech is excellent as well- she seemed to know exactly what Dr. Lu needed, and Dr. Lu and her assistant were so good with the procedure, I felt NO PAIN, and did not need any Novocaine or gas or anything. Parking is everywhere around the area, and it’s easy to find and free;, and it’s right around the corner from the “Old Town Monrovia” area which is supposed to have a lot of good eateries and weekly market. Dr. Lu’s prices are great- actually affordable- especially here in Kalifornia where my last three cleanings- I have never had a cavity, so my cleanings are pretty simple- cost me $300!!!!  Not at Dr. Lu’s- her prices are affordable and fair- like what I was used to paying back in the Midwest and Southwest. I can’t say enough good things about her and her team, and the whole family is switching over

Choosing a Dentist can be a difficult thing to do. I found Healthy Life Dental on Yelp and let me tell you all the great reviews they have are 100% accurate. The team there is fantastic and really make you feel at ease. Gloria is great she is so kind, friendly, and so helpful at figuring out what to do financially that best fits my needs. Dr.Lu was very thorough at explaining to me all the work that needs to be done. I will admit I have neglected my teeth, but the team there made me feel great and was happy to help me get my teeth healthy. I, like others, dread going to to the Dentist, but not here. I recommend anyone with fear of the Dentist to give this place a try

Jessica D. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


My boyfriend was actually the one that found Healthy Life Dental for us on Yelp and I’m glad we made the decision to choose them. Right when you walk in you are immediately greeted by Gloria who is the receptionist here. She is such a friendly and genuine person and really knows how to make you feel welcomed. Dr. Lu is very thorough and knowledgeable in what she does and makes every visit of mine feeling at ease, because she lets you know what she will be doing and reviews with you the outcome. The staff here is truly amazing. If you have had bad experiences from past dental places and looking for a new one, I highly recommend Dr. Lu and her outstanding staff, you wont regret it!

Jonathan B. from Monrovia, CA (Source: Yelp)


We are so happy to have found Dr. Lu and Healthy Life Dental! Our family continues to grow (three young boys at the moment) and my wife I knew we wanted a dentist who was good with kids and could help us establish good dental habits from an early age. Even though we had spent probably too long since our last dental visit, Dr. Lu and staff were very understanding and friendly and put everyone at ease about getting us back on track! It is clear that everyone at the office puts the patient’s comfort as first priority, and such a great balance of expertise and a caring manner from Gloria managing the front desk to Maria assisting and of course Dr. Lu! Additionally, the staff has always been flexible working with our schedules, an attribute we value highly as a busy family. I recommend them strongly!

Carla Portillo (Source: Google)


Dr Lu, Gloria and the rest of her staff are all just simply amazing. I went in for a very needed check up and worried about filling in a chip on my front tooth. Dr. Lu did such a great job I decided to try her out with my kids. If you are a mom you know that feeling of uncertainty when taking your kids to a new dentist. You don’t want their experience to be negative because you don’t want to deal with the consequences later. I can honestly say taking them to Dr Lu was the best decision I have made. My 7 year old daughter just got fillings…you can imagine what we both were feeling. Dr Lu explained to her what she was going to do before giving her the anesthesia, yes a shot, and was so gentle that even though my daughter cried for a second or two, she stayed calm and is even willing to go back for one more filling next week. I hope this helps your decision, I highly recommend Dr Lu

Joe D. from Midlothian, VA (Source: Yelp)


Health Life Dental is as good as it gets for a dental office. Seriously, who actually enjoys going to the dentist? I avoided it for the past 14 years, and was in fear of the aches ad pains I was feeling in my mouth. I finally sucked it up and made an appointment. I had more cavities than I like to admit, but everything from scheduling appointments to initial consultation/exam to fillings has been so much better than I feared. Dr. Lu is thorough and patient (and does an excellent job numbing me before all procedures). All the support staff are wonderful, the office is clean and modern, and there are individual TV’s to watch during procedures. My dentist anxiety has been significantly reduced due to my experiences here. It takes a lot for me to recommend a dentist, but Dr. Lu and staff at Healthy Life Dental have earned my trust. Give them

James H. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recently was looking for a new dentist to deal with a painful gum and tooth infection.  I was very happy to find Healthy Dental and Dr. Lu and I plan on making her my regular dentist.  I highly recommend her and her staff.  Dr. Lu is very professional and her fees are very reasonable.  On my first visit, she referred me to an outside specialist to have a root canal done. I was very happy with the specialist.  It was my first root canal and I was well taken care of.  I returned recently for a follow up and today for a regular cleaning. I appreciated that she uses what appears to be the most modern equipment.  I’d be remiss if I did not also mention her staff, in particular GLORIA at the front desk who is always helpful and friendly while answering questions or assisting the patients. Dr. Lu and her staff actually make going to the dentist a pleasurable experience

Celina R. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


I should have reviewed them weeks ago!!! September 11th I went to my “new” dentist because my old one retired. I had a chipped tooth and my “new” dentist said the only option was a veneer.  At $950 each and 4 were recommended.  What!!!!  They said that was the only option! I came here for a second opinion.  This is now “MY” dentist!!!! This place charged my insurance $118 to fix my chipped tooth… The dentist that said I needed veneers charged my insurance $324 to do nothing!!! Nothing… They looked, made a recommendation but did nothing! I love this place!  The receptionist was nice and friendly!  She called my insurance so that I knew any costs before hand. The office was neat and clean! The dentist could have made me wait until my scheduled appointment 3 days later, but went ahead and took care of the chip then and there!  She did not try to over charge me or ask me to pay for things I did not need! This is my dentist!!!! Love them!!!

Excellent service. I’ve been a patient of this office for more then 4 years and I have only excellent things to say about them. Dr Lu give detailed explanations on all the procedures she is doing, either is dental cleaning or fixing cavities or whitening. Very gentle, I never felt any pain, friendly and professional at the same time. They are never late on taking you in, very punctual, they always follow up with a phone call inquiring about my well being after each visit. They are trying to accommodate me for every appointment and they are explaining in details the payment. I would highly recommend this office for excellent service, friendliness, professionalism and accuracy in billing. A true boutique dental office

Edward P. from West Covina, CA (Source: Yelp)


Thee best dental experience I have ever had! Had few visits this past month and don’t write many reviews but was blown away by this experience I HAD TO! Great clean and attentive practice. Not once did I have a feeling() of being ignored. I wasn’t strung on a chair with mouth open while the doctor bounced around tending to other patients. Seriously the setup, design and instruments used were great. A toothbrush sized camera?! Dope! X-ray machine in the same room coming out of the wall?! Dope! The doctor sits there examines and very thorough on explaining any issues or concerns. Not rough, very friendly and professional. Friendly and professional also goes for the entire staff, great crew. I regret not asking for names, but from the front desk, the voice behind the appointment caller, the assistant to the doctor and the hygienist. All friendly and made this experience great for me and my sons. They have a patient a patient for life…or for as long as they except my insurance!   -Clean -The exam room w/ Batman like tools -Friendly & professional staff-Great doctor-Happy patient with nice strong and clean chompers!

Dr. Lu and her staff are absolutely excellent. They have the latest equipment and Dr. Lu takes her time to explain whatever procedure we need to have, including showing pictures and clarifying any doubts or concerns we might have. I already recommended Dr. Lu to a friend of mine, and she is also extremely satisfied with the attention and care she received from Dr. Lu and her staff

Denise Perez (Source: Google)


Amazing experience on my 3 year old daughters first time at the dentist. Dr Lu and the gentleman who did my daughters cleaning are great with kids, my daughter was very happy and eager to get her teeth cleaned because of how well they approached her they took their time to show her the tools they would use and let her feel the sensation in her hands first so that when they went ahead with the procedure she wouldn’t be startled. My daughter is now asking me when will she be going again! Also, the ladies in the front desk are very sweet and personable. We will definitely keep coming here for our family’s dental care. Great job guys!

Sabrina H. from Brea, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just had an appointment here yesterday! And it was lovely! The office was very clean, looked nice ! The front desk staff was a amazing very nice, engaged in small conversation which made you feel comfortable and at home ! And most people know that’s sometimes hard at a dental office. All the paper work was simple and easy to fill out. I was taken back fairly quickly. And saw dr what seemed like in a flash. My appointment over all went by quick which is always a plus! I can definitely tell that this dental office has my genuine health and safety in mind. i would also like to add that they took every per caution to make me feel safe and reassured because of covid. Over all i had a wonderful experience here and would definitely be coming back for all my future appointments!

Elaine C. from Elysian Park, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Today was my first experience at Dr. Lu’s office and I’ve got to say, it was one of the best experiences I have ever had at a dental office. Walking in, the reception area was clean and equipped with a plastic screen for health precautions. The receptionist Christine was so nice and welcoming; made me feel like I’ve been going there forever. She even offered me water while I waited! She then took me back to wait for the dentist and I got to watch tv in the dentist chair while I waited. What a treat! The dental assistant, Dora, then came and took my xrays, which she did perfectly. I finally met Dr. Lu after a very short wait and she was the sweetest. She was very knowledgeable and she took the time to explain to me the condition of my gums and teeth by showing me the xrays and photos that were taken. She then clearly went over what the plan was for us going forward. I was ten minutes late to my appointment, but they were able to accommodate me for what I needed done (a filling at a very tricky spot), even though it was near closing time. The dental work done was impeccable. It was as if my tooth was brand new! I was always weary of going to the dentist before, but this experience changed my mind. I am looking forward to going back for my cleaning in a couple of weeks

I have been going to Dr. Lu for 5+ years and trust her immensely! Every visit is enjoyable and I always feel like I am in great hands with her. The front desk if very helpful, and I just had an issue come up with a previous visit and Aida listened and made me feel comfortable and that my concerns were justified and it really helped ease my concerns. She worked with Christine to come up a solution, and I very much appreciated it!

Most amazing dental office ever. You’re not just patients here, you feel like part of a family. My kids look forward to their visits and the way everyone in the office engages them makes me glad that we found this place. I’ve had serious issues with my teeth and the expert assessments and thorough explanations of Dr. Lu allowed me to make informed decisions regarding my care. My teeth have never been healthier. They are also really reasonable and work directly with insurance. You will be hard pressed to find another office that’s the complete package of expert care, exceptional customer service, and reasonable prices. Extra love to Gloria… thanks for always making a way for our crazy big family to be seen!

Ale Arreola (Source: Google)


One of the best Dentist I have come across. Dr. Lu is very detail oriented, I have been with her for a couple of years, I really don’t mind driving 45 minutes for my appointments. I never have to wait more than 15 minutes to be taken care of, the office staff is very organized. I have never experienced an issue with my out of pocket costs, they check with your insurance and make sure you don’t have surprises

Jim C. from Monrovia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Growing up in the WWII era in Indonesia, where dentists used hand driven equipment and had no access to X-ray equipment, they instilled a fear for Dentists in me because of all the pain and discomfort I had experienced in that era, until I had to see Dr. Lu, for a “chipped” front tooth. Her receptionist Gloria Aguirre was the point of contact and I was very pleasantly surprised by her customer service skills and attitude, which put me at ease from that time already. My teeth are a “mess”, but Dr Lu never made any derogatory remarks or show any disgust about what she diagnosed. She just told me in a very calming way, what needed to be done and that her office would work with the Insurance company on the compensation for her work and the fact that she offered a payment option for my portion of the bill. She corrected the problem w/o any discomfort and/or pain and it looks so natural, so that I can smile again w/o hesitation. I was totally blown away. Each time I came in after that, that “fear” was still present, but Dr. Lu , worked her “magic” hands and chipped away on that “fear”. She did 2 extractions which I expected to cause pain and/or discomfort. Before I knew it and/or felt anything Dr. Lu had extracted the remaining roots of 2 broken teeth, w/o any pain or discomfort. She will have to do another extraction, before she can work on installing “bridges”. Nowadays, I enjoy coming in for any appointment, because I trust her judgement , her knowledge of dentistry and I trust her hands. I also was impressed with the “state-of-the-art” equipment she uses to do her fantastic work. Would I recommend her? No question about it. So far she is the best dentist I have trusted my teeth to

I am new to Monrovia and looking for a dentist closer to home. Found Dr. Lu’s office on Yelp and read a lot of great reviews. I am the first to say that I hate going to the dentist just based on past experiences but I got to give it to the team that works at Health Life Dental. First impression is that they all welcome you with a bright smile. Very friendly people that cuts the anxiousness and nervousness of being there. Dr. Lu does a great job at putting you at ease by talking to you and explaining what needs to be done. Appointments are usually quick and painless, get in and get out with a smile. Will highly recommend this dentist office to anyone looking for a genuine group of people that truly cares for your dental hygiene

Daisy T. from Baldwin Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great experience overall-Gloria is absolutely amazing! I believe your experience with the office staff sets the tone for the entire experience and Gloria is exceptional. She’s welcoming, personable, highly knowledgeable, and has a great sense of humor. She was also able to squeeze my husband in to get serviced when he couldn’t get an appointment.  The office is clean, organized, and equipments are very modern. Dr. Lu was gentle with my cleaning and very thorough with my initial consultation. She was honest and straight to the point with the work I needed. This is definitely going to be my life long dental office

Joel S. from Monrovia, CA (Source: Yelp)


A few months ago I began to experience some intense pain on a tooth/root canal and I decided it was time to look for a dentist near home. Thankfully, by the Universe’s graces, I was led here! I remember calling in the day I could no longer handle the pain that was coming from my tooth/root canal. I was given an appointment the same day. Upon arrival I was greeted by Gloria, who was all smiles and very welcoming. She had me fill out paperwork and took care of all the insurance stuff. Once we squared away all the paperwork I was taken to a room where I was introduced to Dr. Lu. Dr. Lu was very friendly and diagnosed my situation. It turns out that this tooth/root canal had become infected and was the culprit of all my pain and misery. She immediately recommended me to a specialist close by in the city of Arcadia (The Ivy Institute, who, by the way, did an exceptional job of doing the re-treatment of this tooth/root canal). Once the re-treatment was completed I was scheduled to come back to Dr. Lu to get a new crown placed over the root canal. It turns out that the crown that had been replaced was defected and cracked a few days after it was placed. Here’s why I had to 5-Star rate Healthy Life Dental: I called in and spoke with Gloria to let her know of my situation. She immediately set an appointment for me the following day and Dr. Lu extracted the defective crown, got a mold for the new one, and a week later planted it. Easy peasy! I will continue to come here for as long as I reside in the beautiful city of Monrovia. How does the saying go? “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it

Zane O. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


There aren’t many words that are capable of describing the amazing, incredible detail of care that Dr. Lu and her staff at Healthy Life Dental put into her patients! I can resonate with many others in asking “Does anyone actually enjoy seeing any Doctor, of any kind?”. Well, consider my hand raised, I do! I’ve been seeing Dr. Lu for quite a while now, years come to think of it, and the entire staff at Healthy Life have done nothing but make sure my teeth are well taken care of through and through. I love coming here! Look forward to it every time! At this point I’m driving over an hour to visit this office, and every minute is worth it! They are more than available, always have openings in schedule, and will make sure you understand every thing that’s happening at every moment. Gloria is the sweetest and is always working to make sure I can figure out the best times to get in for all of my cleanings (and lately more serious dental work). I’ve recommended and referred as many people as I possibly can, including my other Doctors! It doesn’t get any better than Healthy Life, they set a bar for excellence standard that dental offices around the state can live by! Excellent beyond all means, and the best by every count!

Attention Monrovia/San Gabriel Valley: Healthy Dental is the absolute BEST. If you’re not already a client here, you should check it out immediately. I’m very picky when it comes to dentists, and I haven’t been happy at a dentist in a long time. But I walked into Healthy Dental about a month ago at the recommendation of a co-worker, and I will stay here forever because Dr. Lu and her staff are just that amazing. Gloria at the desk is not just professional – she’s friendly and welcoming and makes you feel like a friend walking in the door. I’ve never waited more than 5 minutes before being taken into the back. When you sit down in the chair, the staff always asks if you’d like to watch TV (there’s a nice-sized monitor close to the chair, which I’m guessing could be turned on the whole time for those who need something to focus on while getting teeth cleaned). Dr. Lu and her assistant always greet you warmly and then, dive right into the work – I recently had fillings put in, and the procedure was quick and gentle from beginning to end. One of the things I really appreciate is that Dr. Lu is focuses completely on her work and doesn’t ask questions or talk while working — we all know how hard it is to answer questions when your mouth is open! It makes Healthy Dental feel more like a day spa! Another thing I really enjoy is that Dr. Lu always shows you photos of your teeth on a TV screen and where the cavities are, or how they looked before and after fillings. Not easily being able to look at my own teeth, it’s really neat to see the work that’s been done that day. I feel like I know my teeth so much better now! Scheduling an appointment is easy and the times are very flexible – they make an office visit work for you. I can’t recommend Healthy Dental highly enough. So what are you waiting for? Call them already!

Patricia B. from Monrovia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Healthy Life Dental is an exceptional dental office. My daughter and her family could not stop raving about the service they received, so I decided to come in. The staff are fantastic. Gloria has a welcoming personality and puts you immediately at ease. I was impressed by the way she greeted all visitors to the office, engaging us with pleasant conversation. She also has a good knowledge of insurance policies and was able to answer all my questions. I was also pleased with the service I received from Dr. Lu. She provided me with a very thorough exam and reviewed my treatment plan options in a clear and concise manner. She is also very fair and explains all options, not just the expensive ones. I highly recommend Healthy Life Dental

Jose E. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just moved to Monrovia in November 2016. I started my dental search in January, even though my new benefits kicked in earlier in the summer. (TIP: use your benefits before the year ends to maximize how much your insurance will pay). I’ve been to Dr. Lu twice now for a cleaning and some fillings and she’s great. She takes the time to explain everything and is very professional. Staff is also great. Gloria at the front desk is friendly and courteous. She explained my benefits  to me clearly. Parking on the street has not been an issue at all. So glad I found this practice. The office feels like it has that small town vibe in the middle of Old Town Monrovia. The service feels personalized and you can tell they care about their patients. I like their text reminders in addition to the phone call reminder

Hans A. from Florida (Source: Yelp)


I have visited Healthy Life Dental 3 times now, and could not be more pleased with the entire experience. I have 2 more sessions upcoming. From the moment you walk in, you are greeted by very friendly and accommodating staff (Gloria, in my experience.) Out of the waiting room and into the exam room: I was amazed that Dr. Lu did the cleaning procedure herself. I cannot recall a time in the last 30+ years when a dentist did both my cleaning and examination. She uses an ultrasound cleaning system that is quick , painless, and effective. I was very pleased with the results. I am someone who takes responsibility for my own health, and so I like to know what’s going on when I have a medical or dental appointment. Dr Lu uses very effective technology to to take digital photos of your teeth and uses them to explain her reason for suggesting treatments, as well as showing before and after treatment comparisons. For me, that is huge. I felt very comfortable that the treatments being proposed we’re valid and reasonable, and I can actually see the results in close detail. Very nice. The office is quiet and peaceful, and the entire experience is very comfortable. If you live in Monrovia, it’s a nice bonus to be able to walk to the office. If you don’t live in Monrovia, it’s a wonderful place to visit. Regardless, my appointment times with Dr Lu, Gloria, and Maria (Dr. Lu’s assistant) have been outstanding, and I highly recommend them if you are looking for a dentist ( or just a better dental care experience.) Adding a followup… I did have the two sessions mentioned above, and my opinion only improved of the overall experience at HLD. I have an annual exam coming up soon and I have every intention of making that appointment. I can’t say enough good about this group of professionals

If you are tired of repeated work done on the same tooth over and over again or high prices because of no dental insurance, or for that matter hearing your dentist repeatedly saying oops, then its time to change your dentist. Now I am not the type of person that has the time to properly care for my teeth so I depend on a dentist who will monitor the conditions of my chops before it decays to a point of extraction. Healthy Life Dental has so far been the solution to my dental problem. They provide insurance to lower the cost of extensive work that would have cost me hundreds if not thousands of dollars more. Great Job!

I would like to first mention that I am NOT a fan of dentists…but Dr. Lu and her staff have definitely changed my mind!  From when I first walked in and was greeted by Gloria (who is awesome and super friendly), to Dr Lu’s assistant Maria who is always making sure I am comfortable and doing ok, my dentist apprehensions were totally put aside.  It is not often we meet with dentists who are honest and Dr. Lu is a great example of one of the few that actually are!  She is honest about what is priority and what can wait;  that was a surprise compared to other dentists, as I felt that I was not being swindled into getting anything that I did not need. I have definitely found my forever dentist!
