Ryan Y. from Rosemead, CA (Source: Yelp)


No one likes going to the dentist to get work done, but somehow this office takes away that nervous and anxious feeling you normally would get. They are super personable and welcoming family run business that really makes you feel like a family friend which you’ve known your whole life. I had some work done after getting a root canal at a previous office and it was an overall terrible experience. I didn’t like the fact that the dentist kept mentioning to me how little he gets from the insurance for people who had my insurance company. I knew that was not an office I wanted to keep returning to, so I searched for another place. That’s when I stumbled upon this place on yelp and the reviews of this place were spot on. Gary was so easy going and relatable that he makes  the experience such a breeze. He was professional and does such amazing work. He takes his time explaining every step of the way and ensures you feel comfortable and completely satisfied before you leave. Literally the whole team there is so friendly and welcoming and they are all such a pleasure to work with. I cannot recommend this place enough. I know I’ll be coming here for years to come. I have finally found a dentist which I can no longer feel nervous coming to

I was skeptical about getting a cleaning during COVID, but Dr. Luu and his staff were very assuring about doing the best to create a safe environment. They’ve implemented safe practices for themselves and for the patients. And they’ve heavily invested in air filtration systems, which was big for my peace of mind. Throughout the whole cleaning, Dr. Luu and his staff were very professional and thorough. By thorough, it wasn’t just with the cleaning work, but examining my teeth and calling out potential problems and explaining his recommendations. I’ve never had a dentist be so proactive and caring for my teeth and gums, so I really appreciated that. I know things are wild right now, but if you do need your teeth attended to, I highly recommend these guys

B. B. from Porter Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


First off, I would like to say that Dr. Gary Luu is the best dentist around and I’m actually upset that I didnt find him sooner. I have extremely sensitive teeth and I would be reluctant to go to a dentist because of the pain and discomfort Ive experienced from other dentists, and just to put it into perspective, i have spent years looking up reviews of different places and have been to a total of 12 different dentists. Finally, after years of research and expanding my search options, i found dr. Gary luu. THANK GOD.  SUPER gentle and finally…NO PAIN and very very thorough and super quick on top of that! The guy is gotdamn wizard. Didnt think id ever stop searching, but I have NO problem driving an hour and a half to visit this guy! No one gets to go near my teeth except him! 1) office is VERY CLEAN. 2) staff is AMAZING. So warm and welcoming! 3) Dr. Luu is extremely knowledgable and is the only doctor that studies sleep behaviors which actually hugely relate to dentistry. Hes constantly evolving and actually finding better ways to help his patients! 4) works with you on your ppo insurance coverage and is very thorough. 5) he has the best referrals to other specialists!  He makes sure his patients are in great hands! 6) BUNCH OF PLACES TO EAT NEARBY LOL 7) parking is never a problem. Make sure you are proactive with any of your dental appointments cuz this guy is busy! Books up quick! Found out that my co worker also goes to him, and we work in a city thats an hour away!  Wtf what are the chances?? Turns out, i know 4 other people that also go to him.  Starts to not be surprising after a while because everyone goes to him

I live abroad now but whenever I come back to the States I stop by Luu Dental to get my teeth cleaned and checked by Dr. Gary Luu. It’s always a smooth experience. I’ve been coming to Luu Dental since before Gary was even in dental school. Dr. Hoi Van Luu, Gary’s dad, used to manage my teeth. Honestly, I’ve known Gary since we were younger and as we’ve grown and matured so has he in his career. I can say that hes one of my hardest-working friends and he has a passion for his job, reinvesting into his business while learning/specializing his skill set. The effort he puts in definitely shines through when you talk to him. I’m proud to be Gary’s friend and his patient. Just got my teeth cleaned an hour ago at Luu Dental – my mouth feels great

Takumi K. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


My experience at Luu Dental has been fantastic! Dr. Gary Luu has taken great care of my teeth over the years and provides great advice regarding hygiene and preventative care. He always ensures that I am comfortable during my visits and has a gentle hand while he’s working on my teeth. One of the main reasons why I chose Luu Dental was because my previous dentist was rather rough with my teeth and I felt he didn’t really care about his patients much. Hailey is super great to work with when scheduling appointments and is always so kind when I see her in the office (and on the phone too!) I recently decided to do Invisalign and met with Dr. Casey Luu for a consultation. He was very professional and took the time to explain what Invisalign is and went into detail as to what to expect during my treatment. His consultation definitely persuaded me to move forward with getting Invisalign when I was initially on the fence about it. I recommend Luu Dental for all of your dental needs!

Carmen P. from Rosemead, CA (Source: Yelp)


If I could give a 10 star review I would. First of all I had a big fear of going to any dentist, so you can imagine my teeth were not in tip top shape. About 2 years ago I was in excruciating pain from a bad cavity on my molar that I never took care of, I was literally in tears from the pain. I walked into this office in hopes that they could help me, I had never been to this office before. Hailey the amazing receptionist at the front desk was soo attentive and sweet. Dr. Luu took me in right away to see what he could do for me. Dr. Luu referred me to a great oral surgeon since the tooth needed to be pulled out. Dr. Luu called the oral surgeons office and within 20 minutes I was at the oral surgeons office getting my tooth taken care of. Dr. Luu was soo understanding of my fear of dentists and was very nurturing and kind. Since I loved how Dr. Luu and Hailey treated me, I then recommended Dr. Luu to my husband since he needed some work done for a dental clearance he needed prior to a major surgery. Dr. Luu went above and beyond to get my husband’s dental needs taken care of before surgery. I have had great work done myself by Dr. Luu. He makes me feel comfortable, not scared, always takes the time to explain every step to me. Jeffrey is Dr. Luus assistant and is great at what he does, he is always there making sure im ok and comfortable. Now I have my brother who had an even bigger fear of the dentist, going to see Dr. Luu! He loves them too! He couldn’t get over how nice and comforting they all are. I never thought I could go to see a dentist and have no fear. They are that good! And to top it off, Hailey always calls after an appointment to see how we are doing, making sure we are good. Believe me when I say that they are AMAZING! If you are in the market for a dentist look no further! Dr. Luu is your guy! Thank you Hailey…Jeffrey…and Dr. Luu!

My dentist retired so I was in search of a new dentist. I decided to try Dr. Gary Luu (“Dr. Gary”) and I am so glad I did. I now have a new dentist that I love!  You know how most people dread going to the dentist?  Well, you won’t with Dr. Gary.  I always leave his office smiling and all my visits are so pleasant. It’s a small family run dental office. Everyone is so sweet and welcoming. I love the intimate feeling and how they remember who I am. I also love that it’s easy to make an appointment and that they even have plenty of Saturday appointments available. I always found it hard to make appointments at other dental offices, but I have been able to set appointments here very easily.  I also love that they don’t overbook like many bigger dental offices.  So, you get seen right away.  There’s no waiting around, which is how it should be! My first experience with Dr. Gary was for a check up and cleaning. I also brush too hard so I had to go in a few times to get fillings/buckles/bonding (not sure about the terms).  Every single time I went, I was just so pleased with the service and work done.  He is very friendly and funny.  I always find myself laughing when I’m there.  I also love his dental assistant, Hali.  She’s so sweet.  Whenever I’m getting work done, both Dr. Gary and Hali ask me if I’m doing ok throughout the process.  I just feel like they genuinely care about my comfort.  When Dr. Gary is doing the anesthesia shot, Hali massages my arm/shoulder.  Its the first time any dental assistant has done that.  It makes such a difference!  It takes your mind off the shot/pressure.  I remember thinking, “Wow!  This is great!” I also noticed that Dr. Gary’s work is really great!  I got fillings/buckles done before by my old dentist.  When I look at the difference in the work, its noticeable.  Dr. Gary made the filling an exact color so it doesn’t look like a filling.  I can tell he really cares about the work he does.  And I notice it in my mouth!  Dr. Gary also took the time to teach me how to brush my teeth and floss properly.  His technique is helping me do it everyday. There’s plenty of parking in the lot, which is another plus. I highly recommend Dr. Gary for your dental needs.  You won’t ever dread going to the dentist again!

If you are looking for an All Star Service Dentist, come to Luu Dental. You won’t regret it. This is a family run dentistry that provides you with great customer service, caring doctors and staff, and you’ll receive top quality work. Making an appointment is super easy, just give them a call. Lin who is the receptionist & also a dentist assistant will pick up the phone. She speaks Vietnamese and English. I am not always the best at talking on the phone, but be patient and Lin will answer all of your questions. My first visit was about a year ago. I came in just trying to get a diagnostic of the health of my teeth since I hadn’t been to the dentist in a while. I was greeted by Lin and given a general patient questionnaire. After that I was greeted by Dr. Gary and Hali (Dr. Gary’s dental assistant). I got a full examination and a thorough cleaning of my teeth that day that I was able to smile with confidence once again 🙂 From the examination, Dr. Gary took the time to explain with detail the areas where there was a concern and how to treat them. From his diagnostic I was able to make informed decisions as to how to move forward with any treatments. My experience at this dentistry has been nothing else but positive. As a child and teenager I dreaded going to the dentist. However, ever since I found this place I actually look forward to my dentist’s appointment. I just came in for my 5th visit and all of the five times I have left happy and satisfied for the following reasons: 1. Dr. Gary and Hali have always been great at making sure that I am comfortable and relaxed during any procedure (cleaning, fillings, etc.) and I had rarely experienced any pain at all during any of my visits. 2. I see the great quality of work I am receiving. I feel like I get an upgrade every time I come in here. I always walkout feeling and being a better me. 3. They are caring professionals and friendly people. You can see it and you can feel it. I feel like of the family everytime I come to visit.  4. I can afford it. I am a college student and don’t have a dental insurance but that was never an obstacle to getting great quality care So book your next dentist appointment with them! They are great at what they do. Seriously. P.S. I forgot to mention that Dr. Gary still continues to get educated in his field to bring to his customers more services and the latest in dentistry practices

Vivian F. from Pomona, CA (Source: Yelp)


There is not enough words to explain how happy I am to have found this dentistry. I mentioned before how Dr. Hoi worked on my tooth and saved it from an extremely close root canal. I also mentioned how I had never met Dr. Gary because he was on vacation the first time I came here. Well, a few weeks ago, I got the pleasure of meeting him when I came back to have my teeth cleaned. First impression, he’s easy to talk to and super funny! He made me feel very comfortable from the moment I walked in. As well as the receptionist of course. I can’t believe I still don’t know her name.. but she’s always been very kind toward me whenever I came in. He then informed me, after getting my X-rays, that I had another tooth that was close to being a root canal.. And all this time, I thought I took good care of my teeth. I was so scared at the thought of having to pay for a root canal because they are PRICEY. So as you can imagine, my heart was pounding as I was laying in the chair, waiting for the verdict. I could tell he was being super careful with the tooth and that he did a very thorough job because he suggested that he drill a little closer to get everything out and then. Low and behold, Gary said those glorious words. “We saved it.” I swear the clouds opened up and the angels sang. It’s indescribable the relief I felt. That’s when I knew I’d NEVER go anywhere else for any tooth related job. Even for something as simple as a teeth cleaning. After speaking with Dr. Gary and his father some more after my filling was done, I saw how genuinely kind they were when it came to their patients. If you’re looking for a dentist who truly cares about you and not about what’s in your wallet, stop looking – trust me

1st time dental exam & cleaning went great. This is a small dental clinic located right on the corner of New Ave & Garvey. The front door is located on the main street of Garvey. Parking: Free Parking at a small private lot that can fit around 15-20 cars Environment: Had a small lobby to check-in and had a TV to watch. Clean place. Since it was my initial exam, I had to fill out paper work, but shortly after I was taken to the back and a few minutes later started on my dental exam and cleaning. IMO it wasn’t a long wait. Maybe a total of 10-15 mins? Of course, my appointment was scheduled. Not sure if they do walk-ins. Cost: I have Delta Dental PPO, and my initial exam and cleaning was covered, so I can’t comment on other procedural costs. Customer Service: I believe this place is family owned, as the dentist who was assigned to me was Dr. Gary A. Luu and the other dentist is Dr. Hoi Van Luu. Dr. Gary was very thorough in explaining to me everything thing that he was about to do and gave me recommendations on future dental procedures that my previous dentist never mentioned. All the recommendations were reasonable and made sense. I appreciated the education on how to better take care of my teeth. I would definitely recommend other friends and family members to get their dental services by them

If you’re new to this area, there’s no need to look any further for a dentist. If you’re looking for a competent, thorough, friendly…basically a dentist who genuinely cares about his patients, this is the dentist for you. Over the past few years, I’ve had nothing but excellent dental care from just teeth cleaning to fillings, repairs, and caps from Dr. Gary Luu. Unlike my last dentist who just cares about billing the maximum allowance from my insurance, and sometimes I would have to wait for an hour even though I arrived on time for my appointments; that has never happen at this office.  It drives me crazy reading really long reviews so I’m not getting into too much details by making this short as I don’t really like to write reviews. A big reason I’m writing this review is because Dr. Luu have always took his time to make sure I’m happy with any treatment so it’s only fair I’m taking my own time to return the favor. As the saying goes, what goes around comes around. When you do good and the right things for others, you will get what you deserve in return. Just take my words for it and make an appointment, you won’t regret it. For all the times that you’ve made the pains go away…my mouth is saying THANK YOU DR. LUU!

Dean T. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am happy to announce that after roughly two decades of not seeing a dentist, the hiatus has come to an end.  Finding Dr. Gary Luu could be attributed to Yelp or my maturity in finally making the plunge to make the call and actually use the insurance awarded to me, but in all honesty, I wouldn’t be writing this review if it weren’t for Dr. Luu — not the dentist, per se, but the man behind the dental mask and loupes. Whether it’s a doctor or dentist, it is truly hard to find one that is personable, one that sees you not as a client but as a person.  Not only did I get the sense of that during my appointment, but it became even more evident afterward, when we stood around and chatted for 30 or so minutes about more than just teeth and my willingness to floss.  Our conversation was genuine, and I learned that to be truly “good” at what one does, one’s craft — which Dr. Luu most certainly has — is only part of the gig.  He has what many lack, what has kept me from coming to the dentist all this time  — the ability to connect. Does he make this connection with all of his patients?  I don’t know.  I know we grew up in the same area, and are about the same age, something likely to be central in how we identified with one another.  But I most certainly wouldn’t be surprised if he was this genuine and cool of a guy with most of his patients. I’ve never been excited about having a dentist.  It seriously seems weird, borderline dorky, but at the same time, it feels comforting and relieving that I’m in the good hands of a great person. I don’t really write yelp reviews, mainly because I don’t want to put myself out there, but if anyone deserves one, it’s Dr. Luu.  I encourage anyone who is hesitant, recently moved, or is shopping for dentists, to give him one visit.  I most certainly don’t regret the call I made. Thanks, man.  See you for my follow-up.  I’ll keep flossin’ in the meantime

Dr. Gary Luu is one of the best dentists in the SGV.  My recent procedure with him deserves an updated review.  Before seeing Dr. Gary Luu I used other “highly rated” dentists in the area.  It turns out their work did not hold up over the long run. I had a cavity in the past that was “repaired” with a filling. After seeing Dr. Gary Luu he noticed the filling had some issues.  He removed the filling to find the tooth was rotting beneath the filling the previous dentist had done. The procedure Dr. Gary Luu has done was meticulous and extremely high quality.  The new filling matches my tooth perfectly.  I can’t say enough about Dr. Gary Luu and his staff. His attention to detail and the care he puts into his patients is unmatched.  For those in the area, Dr. Gary Luu is the only dentist you should be seeing

Helen F. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gary Luu is amazing!  For the past several years, I have been looking for a dentist that was knowledgeable, professional, welcoming, and someone with a calming nature to ease my lifelong fears of going to the dentist.  I have found all those qualities and more in Dr. Gary Luu. When I first met him a few weeks ago for a routine checkup and cleaning, he took the time to introduce himself and to ask me a little bit about myself.  When I found out I needed to have some dental treatments, his sweet receptionist, Mrs. Luu, told me to relax and she’ll call me in a couple of weeks to schedule an appointment.  I loved the fact that she was not pushy and always had a smile on her face. When I returned for my treatments, I was greeted with warm hellos by everyone in the office.  The wait time was surprisingly short, which was a huge plus in my book! Dr. Gary Luu thoroughly explained which teeth he would be working on, what he was doing, what tools he held, and why.  He and his assistant, Hailey, would periodically ask how I was doing and kept me distracted in conversations, which definitely relieved any uneasiness I felt about sitting in a dental chair. During my most recent visit, I was in awe by his passion when I learned that he had volunteered his time and knowledge to the local schools, servicing hundreds of children.  He was even willing to pay a visit to my class and educate my students…and I don’t even teach nearby!  So awesome! I am so happy I took the chance and came here based on my sister’s recommendation.  Clearly, Dr. Gary Luu exceeded my expectations of a dentist.   The whole team is so welcoming, I feel that if I have known them for years.  I will definitely recommend him to others

Josh W. from San Marino, CA (Source: Yelp)


I visited Dr. (Gary) Luu for a check-up and cleaning for the first time yesterday. It was an impeccable experience! Background: I had been commuting from South Pas to Beverly Hills for my work and had agonized about trying to find a dentist closer to home or sticking with one near my work. Since most of my professional contacts were only familiar with dentists on the west side, that’s what I went with. Being in a pricey zip code obviously comes with amenities like super attentive staff and unparalleled customer service paired with doctors with great training. I, too, am a professional service provider, so those types of details are important. Fast forward 5 years to today: With the birth of my son and starting my own business in nearby San Marino, I needed to find a dentist closer to home. I had been looking for nearly 2 years, but none of the ones I could find really met my requirements. Many were older and seemed to have one foot out the door or had poor reviews online or simply didn’t have the background and training of the dentists that I had previously had. That’s when I had the great fortune of meeting Dr. Luu. He’s a young-ish guy (translate: still motivated to do great work, but also experienced in providing top-notch service) and he’s really stepping up the game and setting a new standard of excellence in the San Gabriel Valley. I love that I can get to his office relatively quickly and that he has a practice that grew from the seed that his father started (family-owned/operated businesses are near and dear to me). My actual visit was quick and painless. Dr. Luu took time to carefully examine my x-rays and present me with options based on what he saw. He also answered all of my questions, and I never felt rushed out of the chair. He also has a fantastic assistant named Hailey who was equally pleasant and helpful. His rates were VERY reasonable, and frankly could be MUCH higher given his background. I feel super fortunate that I found a world class dentist that I can work with for the foreseeable future

Christopher L. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was at first skeptical with all the high reviews for this dental office.  I was looking for a new dentist that was local to my area and decided to take a chance.  I am a young professional and rely on yelp reviews on everything place I go to.  My first experience with Gary was quite interesting.  Turns out he’s a young guy similar to me but he also is really nice person. When I do my dental work I actually like  DO NOT like to take any shots or any numbness to my gums.  I do all my dental work without any pain killers. I had a broken tooth and a few fillings I had to do during my visit.   Gary had to ask me a few times before we started  if I was sure I didn’t want any shots but I assured him I would be fine for the procedure.  Of all the dentist I’ve gone to he has been the most gentle on my teeth and also he was very thorough with my teeth. While working on my teeth he also was letting me know what exactly he was doing and when It might be more sensitive when he was going in.   Overall he kept me calm and tried his best to keep comfortable during the visit. After the procedure he also gave me advice on how to maintain my teeth a little better.  He also suggested a different tooth brush and a water pic to add to my brushing routine. Things I like… 1.   He’s a professional, really cares about his patients and passionate about his work. 2.   He’s actually a cool guy 3.  I’ve been referring my friends and family to come here.  My girl, my aunt, my mom and my friends! Definitely found my new dentist for a long time!

I was looking for a dentist office around my area and found Dr. Luu’s office. It’s a family owned and operated dental office. Dr. Hoi Luu and his wife are very accommodating, helpful, and welcoming right when you enter the office. They’ve explained how my insurance works and all the procedures that I needed done. Mrs. Luu does her best for giving me the best and cheapest payments available. Dr. Gary Luu is a wizard when it comes to teeth. I’m not a fan of sitting in the chair and having my teeth worked on, but Dr. Gary Luu does an awesome job! The work is done quick, painless, and done well. This office has a high level of professionalism, with a hospitality that matches. Plenty of parking, clean office, convenient to 10 fwy access

I had a wedding in a few days and Dr. Gary Luu was able to accommodate me during his lunch hour for a cleaning and whitening! Dr. Luu even provided me with a home teeth whitening kit and walked me through the process. The whitening kit worked wonders just days before my wedding! Dr. Luu even followed up with a phone call just to make sure the kit worked out well. That’s some service! The facility was up-to-date, modern and was even showing the Rio Olympics at the time. Amazing service and attention to detail. An easy recommendation to anyone looking for a dentist in the area. Thank you Dr. Luu!

Elizabeth T. from Duarte, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been looking into replacing the metal fillings in my teeth for a very long time. I got the bottom done and spent a ton of money. I wasn’t too happy with the outcome and the experience. It was one of the most painful experience. I decided that it would be best to complete the rest of my treatment elsewhere. I received a quote for almost $10k, which was unreasonable. Long story short, I did some more research and found this dentist. His staff is extremely kind and Dr. Gary Luu is extremely passionate and informative . He only had to use one shot to numb my mouth, where in the past I’ve had up to five shots. He did not rush the job and I was amazed at how painless the experience was and how nice my teeth looked afterwards . I’ve never had such an experience at any other dentist compared to this dentist. The price I was charged was definitely affordable even without insurance. I wish I could’ve came across this dentist sooner

Stephanie T. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


First time writing a review on Yelp and it goes to a dental clinic. I’ve been to a quite a few dental places and this place is the smallest, but very clean with the latest tech. The staff there is very friendly. I arrived about 20 minutes before my appointment since it was my first time there and based on the reviews, it takes about 15 to 20 minutes to fill out the paperwork (which did take me about 15 minutes to fill out). I was called in right around my appointment time, so that was nice. My dentist was Dr. Gary Luu and he was amazing. I received a very thorough cleaning of my teeth (never had such a thorough cleaning before) and it was painless. He gave me a detailed explanation on the health of my teeth and how to take better care of them. He also provided recommendations to consider. Throughout the whole cleaning process, Dr. Gary Luu and his assistant Hali, kept asking if I was doing okay and were just very attentive. They explained what they were going to do and I liked that. Overall, I’ll definitely be coming back to this place. Finally found a great dental clinic (no more jumping around to find a good dentist)

Alex M. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


As a long time patient of both Dr. Luu Sr., I can say Gary ( Dr. Gary Luu) is a chip off the old block. Gary is a really a very special type of dentist/business man and I mean that in a very good way. On one hand, you have those that will charge patients an arm and a leg, up-sell them on things they don’t need and do mediocre quality of work all in the name of business and making the most amount of money no matter what. Gary is the direct opposite of this because he genuinely cares about his patients and serving his community which is a reason enough to go to him alone. What really sets Gary apart from other dentists/doctors/any professional is his passion for his craft. I once had a conversation with him about some type of dental procedure he was studying up on and the way he explained it was equivalent to an car enthusiast describing their obsession with the latest Ferrari…. like this dude is really into being a dentist… just by looking in his eyes you could tell he was really into what he was talking about… even though I had no idea what it was. At the end of the day you can take your car to the mechanic down the street, the good mechanic that does good work or the shop where the mechanics eat sleep live cars… why shouldn’t picking a dentist be any different? THANKS FOR EVERYTHING GARY!

Sylvia L. from Temple City, CA (Source: Yelp)


I honestly don’t even know where to start. I actually thought I was only going to come here to get my wisdom teeth taken out, but I just kept finding myself coming back because this office is of such quality in literally every aspect! Dr Gary and his staff definitely know what they’re doing and they make sure throughout the entire process of any service that you’re doing okay. They really take the time to understand what needs to be done and they do such a great job; my teeth are literally radiating. The specialist that comes by this office every month for wisdom teeth removal was incredibly competent and quick (I got four of mine out within 20/30 min). I also had such ease with the healing process because they give you a sheet of thorough aftercare instructions and are more than welcome to answer any concerns. The staff here really takes care of you all the while being so friendly, considerate, and personal. Definitely will be coming here for all of my future dental issues!

Zhisong X. from La Puente, CA (Source: Yelp)


TL;DR I’m so glad my coworker recommended Dr. Luu to me. I had to get a tooth removed and get an implant. I expected it to be super painful but was pleasantly surprised that it was over before I even knew it. Best of all, it wasn’t painful and the recovery was quick. I had been putting off going to the dentist for a long time. I had insurance through my employer but like most people, I never enjoyed going to the dentist. It was usually painful even for routine teeth cleaning. Eventually, through my coworker’s recommendation, I decided to set up an appointment. I’ve been having issues with one of my back tooth ever since I was little and didn’t routinely brush well. That tooth got so bad that every time I had any food in my mouth, I had extreme pain. It got so bad that my parents had to take me to a dentist to get it worked on. The only problem was, we were first generation immigrants here and didn’t have insurance or any spare money. At the time, my dad was part of a church and one of the members there was a dentist and agreed to do the work for free for me. My parents felt bad for not being able to pay so they gave their TV as payment. They felt it was the least they could do. The dentist grind the issue tooth all the way down and covered it in some sort of material so that I wouldn’t have any nerve pain. At least now, my tooth no longer hurt anytime I had food in my mouth. Things were ok for a while and my family improved financially. I got insurance through my parent’s employer and they decided it would be good to get a crown to cover up the tooth and prevent infections. So that’s what we did. We went to a new dentist and got a hollow crown to cover up the stump. Unfortunately for me, things went poorly after that as that tooth started developing an infection deep under the roots. I had no clue and just thought it was weird that there was puss bulging out from the insides of my gums near that tooth. I remember going to that dentist many times for cleaning but they never said anything or did anything about that puss or bulge. Fast forward a few more years and I started feeling pain whenever I chewed from the side that had the issue tooth. I tried avoiding chewing from that side and just brushing extra (at this point, I still really dreaded going to the dentist). My wife eventually forced me to go get it checked out. I’m so glad I did – it was really bad! The infection took over the entire root of that tooth and was really close to spreading to the nearby teeth on both sides. Dr. Luu explained what was happening and gave me recommendation to have the tooth removed and add an implant. I could tell that they really wanted to help and was genuinely concerned about my dental health. I ended up deciding to do it as soon as possible and they accommodated. They did everything to make sure I would have a successful procedure and fast recovery. Along the way, Dr. Luu explained each step that was happening to give me a better understanding of what was going on. Now, I’m pretty much done with the recovery. I’ll be getting a crown once my bones have fully integrated the implant rod. I’m much more cognizant of my dental health now, thanks to all the information that has been provided along the way from everyone at Luu Dental

As a person who has always had bad (and I mean BAD) experiences with dentists, coming here has changed my opinion for the better. Gary will make sure you understand every step of the procedure, and he will absolutely ensure that you go through all your processes painless. He will personally point out what he will be treating either showing you with the mirror or through diagrams that he draws himself. He also treats you like a friend rather than a patient, but yet stays fair and honest with what your teeth need to get to its very best. My dental health has always been shabby, and I had to come in multiple times for the past month, and my teeth and gums haven’t looked better in a long long time 🙂 FYI, do make appointments in advance as they book up reeeeal quick! And just a note for some, this clinic does not take Medi-Cal. Oh and they also don’t take bribes…as I paid for my numerous filings and deep cleaning all out of pocket…so this 5-star review definitely came from an lighter wallet but it’s worth it (for me at least!) for a happier set of teeth and gums 😀 GO TROJANS!!

Thank you to the wonderful Luu family for always taking care of my smile! I have been one of their patients for years and my experience with them is continuously stellar. Luu Dental is a family-owned dentistry with Dr. Hoi (dad), Mrs. Luu (mom) and Dr. Gray (son) – Mrs. Luu is incredibly accommodating with scheduling appointments as well as being so welcoming when you walk through the door. Dr. Hoi and Dr. Gary are true professionals – They have your gum/teeth health and best interest in mind. In recent years, Dr. Gary has thoroughly cleaned, removed my silver fillings to replace them with white ones and improved my overall dental care routine 🙂 Dr. Gary is friendly, knowledgeable and amazing as what he does. As I am looking to get Invisalign, he went out of his way to contact his orthodontist friends and send them pictures of my teeth to get a quick assessment and recommendations. That’s what I call out-of-this-world customer service!

Dr. Gary Luu is an All-Star dentist! I TRUST the dentists at this office more than any others. Let me explain why. I moved to Orange County, a few years ago and I’ve tried dentists around here for the sake of supporting local business and not driving to LA. But I completely regret all the times I didn’t go to Luu dentistry. First of all, PRICE and QUALITY. At Luu, I know exactly what I’m paying for and what things cost. They tell me what different dental materials+equipment are out there and why some are better and cost more (like: made in Germany vs made elsewhere). Yet I can use all their best offerings and still not feel like I got robbed at the dentist! Going to dental offices in OC, one thing is for certain, they will charge you that OC markup price for the same or inferior service! Perhaps it’s because rent is more expensive, and perhaps it’s because the dental offices I’ve been to are all “about corporate profit”. In the case of Luu dentistry, I know the family owns their practice and I am supporting a real and genuine family business. They have stayed in business for over 20 years or so because they are invested in the quality of their family’s work and people always come back! Those OC dentists offer a “production line” service, people go in and out, and you’re just a dollar sign. Your money doesn’t go to a family, but instead you are paying that extra cash to a dental corporation or umbrella with “traveling” dentists. They don’t own the office they work in and that means they don’t have to invest themselves into offering honest and good long-term lasting dental services (fillings and implants for example will show if they are good quality if they can stand the test of time) By the time your filling or implant falls off from bad dental work, the dentists are no longer at that office and you are stuck with nobody to be accountable for that expensive shotty work. No accountability! I’ve seen dentists come and go at these offices and it makes me worry! Not only are the patients going in and out like a production line, but the dentists are as well, they come and go, all to be used up and sucked dry by the corporations. There are still a few REAL GENUINE dentists out there, that give you that nostalgic feeling of Good American Quality and Service. This is what Luu Dentistry offers! They have not given into corporate greed! I unveil some of the dark truths about dentistry in the modern world, but it’s the truth, and you need to be aware of how you spend your money. Spending more is not always better! I have a degree in business, but you don’t have to take my word for it. Go see for yourself!

I have to give Dr. GARY Luu a 5 stars rating. I’m the worst patient when it comes to dentist visits. Recently I had a tooth implant at his office and was freaking out prior to my appointment but to my surprise, it was painless and very quick. The recovery was wonderful and  no pain at all. Dr. Gary took his time to check up on me and my condition just because he saw how nervous I was. He made sure everything was OK and I was comfortable after my surgery. I was very pleased for the way he cared about his patients. I made another appointment with him for cleaning and of course I was in a panic again. Dr. GARY understands and explained calmly as he proceed and make sure I was as comfortable as possible. Over all he’s not only doing a great job but also takes the time to care for each patient and make them feel at ease. Thank you !!

Just got my teeth cleaned from Dr. Gary Luu and the experience was amazing. I had this brown stain in between my two front teeth for years; I went to dentists elsewhere for teeth cleanings and that stain was always there no matter what. After my teeth cleaning today with Dr. Luu, my brown stain was gone. It goes to show the difference between the effort dentists elsewhere put in compared to Dr. Luu’s. Staffs in the office were super friendly and conversational as well! I had a great conversation with Jeffrey and Hailey; they made all the worries of going to see a dentist all gone. Dr. Luu is an amazing doctor! Definitely recommend visiting him if you’re in need of a new dentist. All the staffs are pretty young, so they’re super conversational and relatable! And! If you go to a UC college and have the UC SHIP insurance, they accept it!

I visited Dr. (Gary) Luu for a check-up and cleaning for the first time yesterday. It was an impeccable experience! Background: I had been commuting from South Pas to Beverly Hills for my work and had agonized about trying to find a dentist closer to home or sticking with one near my work. Since most of my professional contacts were only familiar with dentists on the west side, that’s what I went with. Being in a pricey zip code obviously comes with amenities like super attentive staff and unparalleled customer service paired with doctors with great training. I, too, am a professional service provider, so those types of details are important.  Fast forward 5 years to today: With the birth of my son and starting my own business in nearby San Marino, I needed to find a dentist closer to home. I had been looking for nearly 2 years, but none of the ones I could find really met my requirements. Many were older and seemed to have one foot out the door or had poor reviews online or simply didn’t have the background and training of the dentists that I had previously had. That’s when I had the great fortune of meeting Dr. Luu. He’s a young-ish guy (translate: still motivated to do great work, but also experienced in providing top-notch service) and he’s really stepping up the game and setting a new standard of excellence in the San Gabriel Valley. I love that I can get to his office relatively quickly and that he has a practice that grew from the seed that his father started (family-owned/operated businesses are near and dear to me). My actual visit was quick and painless. Dr. Luu took time to carefully examine my x-rays and present me with options based on what he saw. He also answered all of my questions, and I never felt rushed out of the chair. He also has a fantastic assistant named Hailey who was equally pleasant and helpful. His rates were VERY reasonable, and frankly could be MUCH higher given his background. I feel super fortunate that I found a world class dentist that I can work with for the foreseeable future

Doctor Hoi and his son Gary luu are great dentist. They will treat you well and make you feel at ease especially if you are scared to go to the dentist. I have been coming here since I was a child 30+ years and have gotten many procedures done here.Gary specializes in tooth extraction and implants which I have gotten done by Gary, painless procedure and feels just like real teeth. They accept my insurance provider delta dental however they are not in network with them. If you’re looking for a dentist that does it all then come here. This family operated business are very accommodating and the whole staff is very professional and friendly

I went see Dr. Gary for the first time 2 months ago, referred by my best friend, and I am never going to other dentists anymore. Here is why… He is very nice and friendly, so it is very easy to ask questions. He is SO passionate about what he does! No wonder why he is very well experienced. It is such a good feeling to know your dentist is suggesting treatments not for money, but for your health. Their fees are very reasonable. All staff are also very friendly and sweet. I got multiple cavities treated in one hour since I did not have time to come back again and again. I didn’t even think about how tiring it was going to be to be treated at a dentist for an hour! It must have been the same for Dr. Gary too, but and all staff were very caring throughout the time and even praised me how good I was at the end! I felt like a little kid in a good way 🙂 I get anxiety thinking about going to the dentist because I get cavities so easily and have spent sooooo much money. I am never gonna feel that way thanks to Dr. Gary!

I had been looking for a new dentist and it just so happened that a friend recommend I try Luu Dental. Located on the corner of Garvey Ave and New Ave, Luu Dental can be found in the New Garvey Plaza. Parking was easy to find in the lot behind the building; the office entrance faces Garvey Ave. Making an appointment was easy. My sister and I had called in to ask about their available dates. Randy was the one who helped us out; really nice and friendly guy. He was very patient during the entire process to find a day where we could have two back-to-back appointments to fit me and my sister. Randy also asked about insurance and we told him we had PPO (I have Aetna Dental and my sister has Delta Dental, which would be out-of-network for her). One week prior to our appointment, Randy called to remind us of our upcoming appointment. On the day of the appointment, we arrived a bit earlier than our scheduled time. Hali welcomed us with smiles and checked us in. After filling out the information forms, we were shown to the examination area. Digital X-ray’s were taken using the small sensor (don’t have to worry about those old school films that cut into your mouth) and shown immediately on the screen. After that, my gums were measured and the cleaning process began. I was pleasantly surprised at the high quality of care and professionalism shown during the entire process. They explained what they were doing such as measuring the gums, cleaning a stain, etc. Jade and Dr. Luu were very gentle and often asked if we were ok or if we were experiencing any discomfort. Overall, my sister and I had a really awesome experience at a dental office. Yup, an awesome time at a dental office that had an extremely friendly team of people who were great at what they do!

Today was my first time visiting Dr. Gary Luu. I must admit that I was very impressed.  I was 20 minutes late for my appt (I thought it was at 10:30am, but got there around 10:20 thinking that I was early, but it was actually set for 10am. Sorry Doc!) but I can tell he was still taking his time to clean my teeth up.  I can tell he wasn’t rushing, he is very gentle too.  Other dentists I’ve been too are so rough with my teeth, I don’t like that. The first thing I noticed about the service here is that the Dr. Luu goes through all of the things he will be doing for you.  Step by step, he goes through what everything is, what needs to be done, how to fix/take care of issues, etc.  He goes through everything very slowly as if he is teaching you, not just repeating things over to you very fast (because I’m sure he repeats the same things over and over again, day in, day out, to every single patient that walks through those doors). Also, the rest of the staff is very friendly, and makes you feel welcomed.  It doesn’t feel like any other dentists’ office I’ve been to. I went in with major stained teeth from cigarettes, coffee, tea, etc.  I left with my pearly whites actually being white!  I’ve had my teeth cleaned before from other dentists, but now I can really see the quality of Dr. Luu’s work.  He got out the stains that other dentists couldn’t get out, in between my teeth, etc. I always thought all dentists are pretty much the same, but I was definitely wrong.  My other dentist didn’t even give me 1 toothpaste or toothbrush for the past 6-7 years I’ve been going to him. The reasons listed above is the reason why I will go back to Dr. Luu for any future dental work.  I will definitely be back to take care of my crown and cavities that I was procrastinating to get fixed at other dentists.   They go above and beyond your expectations!

I started coming to Luu Dental in 2019 to see Dr. Gary and am very glad I did. His office is full of his family, all graduated from USC (my alma mater), and his staff are all incredibly friendly. I have done a standard teeth cleaning with Dr. Gary, smooth and painless even though I have receding gums. He had Dr. Sy look at my gums and educated me on gum grafts. There was no pressure to perform the surgery, just a recommendation and information on the procedure. The surgery was painless and the recovery was pretty easy. Dr. Sy was very good at monitoring my reactions to make sure I didn’t feel any pain (I didn’t). This was a couple weeks ago, patiently waiting to see full results!

I can finally say I no longer need to search for a new dentist.  For about a year I’ve been jumping to different dentists. I had such a terrible experience from my previous dentist. They were over charging me and telling I need to get certain procedure done when I didn’t need to. I also had all my silver filling replaced for the composite(white) filling done by my previous dentist, I am still unsatisfied with the work he did on my teeth. One day I told myself I really need to start looking for a better dentist that I can trust and feel more comfortable with. As I was searching for a new dentist I stumble upon on Luu Dental. Reading the reviews, I saw a friend of mine left a comment. I decided to text him and asked him some info. I trusted my friend opinion and made an appointment. So far I’ve been here two times for cleaning. The two times I was there, Dr. Luu and his team were friendly and knowledgeable. Great customer service and the best part was I didn’t have to wait long. FYI if you’re looking to replace or get a filling done, Dr. Luu (Gary) is the man to go! I heard he does excellent work. I’m currently waiting to get my braces off so I can redo mine. I will definitely be telling all my family and friends about Dr. Luu. =D


Before you decide if I'm the right dentist for you, let me tell you a little secret about me. I'm a lucky guy. I grew up in Monterey Park and attended New Avenue School as a child. I developed lifelong friendships here—some friends I've known for over 20 years! It was also the beginning of a great education that led me to USC School of Dentistry. And this was all possible because of my dad. His life story is simple, yet very humbling. He immigrated from Vietnam during the Vietnam War with nothing—not a penny to his name. Yet in a few short years, while learning English and dating my mom, he graduated at the top of his class from USC School of Dentistry. His accomplishments gave me pride. They taught me the value of hard work. With that, my two brothers and I followed in his footsteps—all becoming dentists (one brother is our resident orthodontist, while the other currently attends the nation's most competitive Orthodontics school). Since graduating dental school, I began to work with my dad here in this small, unassuming office...only a few yards away from my elementary school. Nothing in this office is extravagant except for the tools and materials we use. That was my dad's approach to life: don't show off, just do the best work possible. So here's my promise to you. I will treat you like family. I believe great dentistry begins with empathy. I understand what worries and fears you may have. And I will do my best to relieve them. I won't treat you just as a patient. I will treat you like a human. I won't start any treatment without explaining in detail what you should know. Knowledge is power, and I want you to be empowered with your own health. Like I said, I'm a lucky guy. And it's patients like you who give me and my family the privileged life we've had. So thank you. I look forward with meeting you! 🙂
