PATIENT REVIEWS

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

Louis D. (Source: Zocdoc)

★★★★★

Dr. T. Lau has been my dentist of choice for over ten years. Early on I realized that I no longer dreaded to have dental work done. Dr. Lau never acts hurried and is gentle, especially when numbing my mouth. I am comfortable getting procedures done which would have been stressful for me before. I am happy to recommend him and his work.

Samantha P. (Source: Zocdoc)

★★★★★

Dr. Lau and his entire staff are very professional and extremely caring. It was my first time here and it was by far the best experience I have ever had. My situation ended up being more complicated and took longer than initially anticipated. I never felt rushed. They were just focused on making sure they did the best they could and that I was comfortable. Overall it’s simply a higher level of care.

Karyn P. (Source: Zocdoc)

★★★★★

I really am so happy with the outcome of my full mouth reconstruction. My new smile feels and looks amazing. I have and will continue to recommend Mid Valley Dental Care. Thanks to the entire staff for making my experience comfortable and actually fun.

Christopher R. (Source: Zocdoc)

★★★★★

As always, Dr. Lau has a wonderful demeanor, and really cares about my dental health. By explaining what is going on in my mouth, he paints a picture of the problem, and makes treatment/prevention so much easier. It’s wonderful that a dentist can really focus on the problems, and not just on repeat business. The candy bowl in the waiting room doesn’t serve candy, because that would be unethical, even though it would be good for business. This is the embodiment of attention to detail!

Dayali C. from Northridge, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Quality of work and professionalism is above par. I have been coming here for about two years now and I have never had a bad experience. Dr. Terence and his staff are all so knowledgeable and they always take great care of me. From personalized follow-up phone calls after a procedure to remembering your name–they definitely go the extra mile. By far, the best dental office I have ever visited. I definitely recommend Mid Valley if you are looking for pleasant visits to the dentist (and yes that exists..only here though!)

Bernie Seidler S. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I just wanted to say how pleasant of an experience the Dr’s and staff have made going to the dentist. I have been a patient for over 10 years and had a lot of procedures done. Root canals, implants, fillings and never had to take pain pills on the way home or the next day. Priceless. Well maybe tylenol….but really Going to the dentist has never been something to look forward to but the entire staff do there best to make it as pleasant as possible. Still smiling today and love the taste of a good steak. So thanks to all.

★★★★★

Wonderful clinic, staff and dentist are so nice and great bedside manner. Love the technology and the dentalVibe makes in sections less painful the first time. Makes fillings better to cope, feel happy when everyone is nice. Good place for dental care.

★★★★★

I’ve been going to Mid-Valley Dental for years and I have not been disappointed once. The doctors and staff are amazing, they are friendly, and genuinely care about you as a patient. The facility is clean, modern, and cozy. I had a cavity filled last week and Dr. Terry used some tool while numbing me that I couldn’t even feel the shots. SCORE! They seem to have all the newest technology in dental tools. I love the text messages reminding me of my appt. Always helpful for this forgetful new mommy. Between cleanings, teeth whitening, bonding, etc. I have never had a bad experience at Mid-Valley Dental and would recommend this office to anybody.

★★★★★

Drs. Terence and Casey Lau are excellent and truly care about their patients. My family has been with Mid Valley since 2007, and they have been nothing but professionals at what the do. We have been under the care of other dentists and I honestly can say that they are at a whole different level in how they treat and explain to the patient the various options and providing professionals guidance, and their workmanship is excellent. I must admit that I expect the best from my dentist and they have achieved that and more. This bother partnership is a winner!

★★★★★

I was referred to Dr. Lau by a friend of mine after I made the mistake of going to a Dentist that offered a Groupon. Needless to say the “Groupon” Dentist said I needed over 10K worth of Dental work! So I contacted Mid Valley Dental Care and was impressed by the friendly office staff. Once I arrived at the office I found the entire staff to be friendly and professional! I had an exam, xrays and a “real” cleaning, not like that ‘Groupon” cleaning that left my teeth dirty and my clothes soaked. The exam was thorough and at the end of it, all I needed was my 6 year old Night Guard replaced! If you are looking for a caring, professional and HONEST Dental Practice, look no further call Mid Valley Dental Care.

Dr.Terry has changed my life. I smile big everywhere I go.People always say you have such a Beautiful smile. The Crew in the office are attentative and caring. Love me some Mid Valley Dental !!

★★★★★

I went for my 2nd appt, this time for 2 fillings, being scared of dentist, Dr Lau made my feel very comfortable and explained everything to me and made sure I didn’t feel a thing! He also talked to me about other procedures and future visits. No pressure , not trying to sell me up , actually saved me a lot of time and cash , Go see him!

Bailey H. from Thousand Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Mid Valley Dental Care is amazing!!!!! First of all the negative reviews I noticed had to do with insurance and billing issues. I’m in the insurance world and majority of the time it’s not the practices fault. The insurance companies can cause many issues. Let’s be honest insurance companies never make things easy. I can’t say more than enough about the dentist here. I have seen both Dr. Casey and Dr. Terry Lau. I’ve never had a dentist educate and explain like they do. The hygienist are filled with helpful information. Go ahead a test them. I did! They are high quality and very educated. You can tell the Dr’s bring in high qualified hygienist. I also noticed complaints about pricing. I had all front 6 of my teeth done; all crowns. They are beautiful and I get compliments constantly. It’s been 7 years since I got them done! It’s high quality work! Trust me I’ve done cheap dental work before and and it’s like anything else you get what you pay for.

Robert D. from Northridge, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I’ve been going to Mid-Valley Dental Care for about 4 years and they’re GREAT!! We all know dentistry is expensive, but like everything else you get what you pay for. The experience I’ve had with Dr T. Lau and his staff has been nothing but fantastic. Dr T. Lau, the hygienists and the assistants have great chair side manners and the office staff has great counter top manners. They’ve always been nothing but upfront with what they’re doing and charging. Plus, isn’t it your responsibility to ask what they’re going to do and charge. So I’m not quite sure what the other reviewers are talking about. We all know people just like to complain about their own ignorances. Dr Lau rocks!!! I just had 2 crowns replaced and a root canal and it feels like I never went to the dentist. My implant last year was the same. The guy is a phenomenal dentist and the prices aren’t any different than most dental offices. Unless you’re accustomed to going to Joe’s Donuts and Dental. Where you get a free implant with every dozen donuts….

Cristina Z. from Northridge, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I’m very happy that we came to Mid-Valley Dental Care in Northridge. I took my mom as she was having pain and after seeing the Hygienist and Dr. Terrance Lau, it was explained what mom would need. Patty was absolutely wonderful and Habla Español! She was able to really explain to my mom even what she has gone thru in her past and just made my mom feel better. My mom does not have insurance, but that did not stop us from coming and checking them out. What we did pay for, $89 for first time visit which included a cleaning and basic X-rays, so worth it. We now know the next steps and looking forward to the next steps. Thank You Mid-Valley Dental Care. You will enjoy your visit and the staff on-board.

Carolina B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I made an appointment for a check up for my son and I. I have a fear of the dentist and this was going to be my sons first time seeing a dentist. With that in mind the staff went the extra mile to make this a smooth and easy experience. Dr. Terrence, Dr. Casey, and the entire staff are amazing! I always expect good customer service anywhere I go, but this place went beyond my expectations. I am recommending this place to everyone I know. When you make an appointment you will get a reminder 2 days before via text, email, and phone call. I personally like being reminded of my appointments, simply because I’m pretty sure I’d forget my head if wasn’t attached to my body. Wait time if you have an appointment is about 10-15 min.

Lisa G. from Westlake Village, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I have been a patient of Dr. Terrance Lau for over 20years, as well as my entire family. He is tremendously meticulous at his craft. His work is nothing short of brilliant. The office is clean and inviting for the whole family. The staff is competent, and effective with a smile. Mid Valley uses state of the art equipment and Dr. Lau is constantly perfecting the art of cosmetic Dentisrty. He is the most trustworthy, caring dentist, hands down. He calls evenings and weekends to check up on you after a procedure. He reconstructed my husband’s ENTIRE mouth 20 years ago, and to this day, he’s complimented on his beautiful smile. I highly recommend Mid Valley and I will never go anywhere else. My own bright beautiful smile is all because of Mid Valley Dental!

Kelli W. from Stevenson Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Terry Lau is by Far the absolute best dentist I have ever been too. He is an Expert in Restorative Dentistry, amount other things. I am seeing him for a FULL MOUTH RESTORATION. Due to illness, medication, and age my teeth required a little bit of everything. This included root canals, veneers and implants. Dr Lau is light years ahead of his colleagues in this area. His equipment is STATE OF THE ART–CT scans,advanced X-rays, Digital pictures of each tooth, all to creat the most perfect teeth to compliment your face. No “horse teeth”, off colored veneers, he and his team are so exacting, your new smile will be beautiful! Another amazing thing is his procedures are virtual PAIN free. His “numbing injections” using something called “dentavibe”–no more painful injections! Amazing for squeamish patients like me! His staff is not only very kind and efficient, but his dental assistants have extensive training creating a PERFECT TEAM to accomplish their miracles. I have NEVER been in a more professional and advanced dental office in my life! They offer nitrous gas & even full anesthesia if required. This office does EVERYTHING to make going to the dentist a great experience–and leave with a perfect smile!

★★★★★

I’ve known this crew for 14 years and I’ve never known them to be anything but professional, efficient, knowledgeable and most important, extremely caring. Everybody is so friendly and helpful. I ask a lot of unusual questions and Dr. Terry always takes the time to explain everything to my edification. He I s quite simply the Best dentist I’ve ever had! And as a 68-year-old woman who has lived in a lot of places , I’ve been to a lot of dentists.

Hello Mid Valley family, so I’ve been going here for a few years now and my dentist is Dr Terry Lau, have you ever been to the dentist where it’s just not a family, dirty, long wait times and just don’t get your teeth super clean? Well Mid Valley Dental is the best place that’s ever happen to me, they all are super friendly and knowledgeable about everything. Dr Lau by far is so gentle but yet he gets the job done and will walk you through everything he is doing. I would honestly hands down recommend this spot with him. He is not only my dentist but my friend and now my family will be joining the family. I’m proud of this spot clean fast and very much a perfect spot if your in the valley! I don’t know about you but when I find a good health care provider I recommend them to everyone! Definitely should get 10 stars!! Also the front staff are polite and funny. Thanks Dr Lau…! Your the best.!

I have had a wonderful experience over at Mid-valley dental. From the second I walked in I was greeted by friendly smiles. The whole team is knowledgeable and extremely attentive. I wish I had found them sooner.

Debbie B. (Source: Zocdoc)

★★★★★

Dr. Lau is a brilliant dentist-he is sweet and kind and is totally educated on all the latest dental procedures. His work is done efficiently and I have had 4 implants done by him. No problems whatsoever! He is very smart and has a team of dedicated professionals working with him. I highly recommend Dr. Lau-my whole family goes to him and we are very happy with his work.

★★★★★

I’ve been going to Dr. Lau for over a year for my dental issues. I have many, and he has always been so careful and thorough when it comes to working on my teeth without making me feel badly about them. I’ve always felt taken care of during every visit, and he takes the time to explain more about the procedures needed, what’s possible, what’s recommended, etc. It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to trust dentists after my previous experiences with unnecessary or botched work, but Dr. Lau is the only dentist who has been able to help me manage my tooth pain effectively for the long term. He is professional and courteous, but also pleasant to talk to. Like most dental work, it is expensive without insurance, but billing has been flexible and patient. The results are worth it, though. There is a discount membership available through Aetna that Midvalley accepts as long as you designate Dr. Lau as your dentist (call ahead of time of course). The facility is always clean and smells nice, technicians and assistants are considerate and comforting, and the staff members are always pleasant and patient. I can’t recommend them enough!

Mid-Valley Dental Care Rocks! Both the doctors are caring and want to make sure that your smile as well as your overall health is outstanding. Our whole family has been patients for years and we’ve never had the experience of anything less than perfectly clean, warm and friendly staff and an painless experience. I never hesitate to refer my family and friends. I would encourage anyone to give them a try, you won’t be disappointed. Drs Lau are experienced and trained in just about all dental specialties to take care of whatever you need – from cleanings to orthodontics. Feel free to message me if you have any particular questions about this practice.

I am a 55 year young women, who has been afraid of dentists all my life. From the consultation, they made me feel like a family, who cares about your well being and comfort. The nurses are very pleasant and friendly. The doctor is such a gentle person, with incredible bedside manner. I am not a number to them, I am a person with needs, that they are willing to go to any extend to fill it. I am recommending them to everyone I know and giving them 5 + stars.

Bernie Seidler (Source: Google)

★★★★★

I have had an extensive amount of work done by Dr. Terry Lau. He has always taken very good care of me and it’s rare that I need to take any medication after I leave the office. The staff is kind and knowledgeable. His expertise and continuing education to keep up to date with the latest technology and procedures makes a visit to his office as painless as realisticly possible. I can’t think of a better place to have all my dental needs taken care of.

★★★★★

My family has been under the care of the Drs. Lau for decades. They are the best dentists we’ve ever been to! I can’t imagine getting better care anywhere else. My wife has had implants with bone repair, my daughters have had braces and Invisalign and I have had delicate dental and gum work that has reversed developing problems. I am impressed with their state-of-the-art procedures, their effort to avoid discomfort, their clear and patient explanation of procedures, and their genuine care for their patients. The front office is cheerful and efficient. They are clear about billing arrangements. I recommend Mid-Valley Dental Care without reservation….I regularly recommend them to everyone I know!

Dr. Casey Lau was recommended to me from a co-worker when I was looking to have implants done. He has been extremely informative in explaining the process of having an implant from beginning to end. Dr. Lau made me feel very comfortable as I started the process, and I felt there was the highest quality of knowledge , computer information , staff and dental work done for me to know I was receiving the very best around! I can’t recommend Dr. Lau and his office enough, they are simply the best!

Allison A. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Once again, I could not help but say that I have now given Dr. Terry Lau the title of “Tooth Angel”. Having been in severe pain, the office was kind enough to get me in right away. To have my first root canal was really scary, but Dr. Lau was kind, gentle, and very thorough in his work. Ever grateful for his expertise and the sweetest staff imaginable.
Thank you so much!

Lost my front tooth and had started with a local practice, but my general dentist suggested I get a second opinion.  I had heard how good Dr.Terry Lau was, and even though he was a two hour drive away, I went for the second opinion.  I am so glad I switched. Whereas my 1st dentist shot an injection straight into the roof of my mouth, (OWWW) MidValley used something different that didn’t hurt for the numbing.  Dr Lau did the tissue and bone graft  I needed, and the implant.  The tooth and gumline look great,  a perfect match.  Very pleased with the results.

★★★★★

Dr. Terence and Dr. Casey are great! Very friendly office and very understanding to your financial situation. I appreciated the time that Dr. Casey took to explain the procedures that I needed to be done so that I understood them. Dental procedures have always been foreign to me, so I really appreciate that he took the time to make me feel comfortable about my treatment plan. I am very happy returning for treatment here!

Dr Terence Lau is a wonderful dentist who is very educated & smart ! He is a kind person also who honestly only wants the best for his patients & has helped me tremendously over 10 years. He has a wonderful staff that supports him , offers a great in- house family dental plan plus also has care credit available to use. He also has very skilled assistants & dental teeth cleaning techs who are amazing & have helped me maintain my teeth. I have 4 implants I have gotten with Dr Lau which are great & never give me any problems. I see Daisy every 3 months who cleans my teeth & she is very educated & skilled at her job . I highly recommend going to Dr Lau & also Dr Casey , his brother who is his partner- they are both the best dentist around!!

Everyone is friendly from the office staff to the doctors. They truly care about you and your well being. They also take the time to personalize your experience to make sure you receive the correct care. My fear of needles dissipates when I’m in the chair and they walk me through every step of the care being administered.

★★★★★

Been coming here for the last several years now. A friend from work recommended this place to me when I was looking for a dentist. These guys are awesome and have been nothing but great to me. Very courteous and professional AND I don’t feel ripped off when I go. I have been to a few dentist where they charged me a lot after insurance and I left feeling ripped off, but not these guys. I have gotten the same cleanings done here that I have got at other offices, but paid less. Definitely will recommend them if you are looking for a dentist!

Dr Terrance Lau is the best dentist I’ve ever had. He’s very knowledgeable and such a pleasure to deal with. Nothing but great service and good vibes from Dr. Lau and his staff! Thank you Dr. Lau for taking care of me! Can’t wait to see you and your staff again soon!!
