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

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


Dr. Liu is a caring and friendly dentist who is capable of performing many procedures. I’ve had him as my dentist since moving to LA over half a decade ago, and he has provided me wonderful service from general cleanings to my wisdom teeth surgery. When I had my wisdom teeth pulled, he clearly outlined the nature of my teeth and how he would go about the procedure. (E.g. 2 impacted teeth will require him to remove those piece by piece instead of one swift pull.) Dr. Liu finished my procedure in a bit over an hour, and then he gave me post-op care instructions. According to a friend who has shadowed Dr. Liu before, he was a board-certified oral surgeon before moving to the US and earning a certificate to practice general dentistry. Definitely overqualified to be a general dentist, but all the better for his patients like me! (Apparently other dentists sometimes refer their patients to Dr. Liu for ops because he’s so qualified (?)) I’ve had no dental problems Dr. Liu can’t fix! I highly recommend him.

Been a patient at Dr. Liu’s for over 8 years now since moving to southern California. Before I didn’t get much dental work which resulted in poor teeth health. Over the years, Dr. Liu has put in diligent work to save and bring my teeth back to decent condition. He even enlisted a specialist, a periodontist, for some work. Dr. Liu attends to my dental care and the well-being of healthy teeth. He advocates and encourages me to be attentive to dental hygiene and maintenance.

Like many of the other posters here, I have also been going to Dr. Liu for over a decade. That speaks a lot to how great his practice is. He is honest and caring, and I have had the highest quality of dental care possible. I would recommend Dr. Liu to anyone seeking a family dentist.

Dr. Liu is everything you want in a dentist.  He really knows his stuff.  He is careful, honest, on-time, and has very reasonable fees.  His office is efficient and well run with the latest equipment.  We’ve also used and liked Dr. Meng, the orthodontist who works out of his office.  Most of his patients are chinese (we are not).  I think you’ll be very happy with Dr. Liu.  We have been, for almost 10 years.

Todd L. from Chico, CA (Source: Yelp)


Well I’ve had three more crowns since my first review and all of them were done at Dr. Liu’s. They were all more or less hassle-free and fit perfect. I should point out that I do not have dental insurance and still the prices were very reasonable. Recently, Dr, Liu handed me off to another dentist in the office  and she did an excellent job too. Now that I think of it, it does seem odd that I’ve had three crowns in such a short period of time…. He did tell me to floss more, and I do. I’m glad  I have Dr. Liu to save what remaining teeth I have. Yay!

Dr. Liu is by far the best dentist I have ever seen! I had a rotten molar with a nasty infection. I saw a dentist who even though I was in a lot of pain, gave me ibuprofen and a referral to another dentist and a quote for the work she would do. I left in more pain than I came in with.  Then someone referred me to Dr. Liu. Not only did he diagnose it right then, he proceeded to do the work that needed to be done. I have a very restrictive dental insurance, so mindful of that, he did what needed to be done for them too. On top of that, he made an action plan to help me before my work trip coming up less than 2 weeks after that initial appointment, so that I wouldn’t be in pain while on it. They have squeezed in several appointments for me so that I can get as much done as possible. He and Dr. Lee have made me realize going to the dentist doesn’t have to be a traumatizing, negative experience like it has been my whole life. Thank you to all of them in this office!!! Go to them if you can!!!!

David W. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Liu has been my dentist for 20 years. All my routine exams and cleanings have done thoroughly.  He never pushed un-needed work.  He let me know when I really did have to replace a filling and explained  why.  During the treatment, he took the time necessary to correctly assess my situation and did a crown.  He explained every detail of what she’s doing before, during and after the procedure.   I highly recommend Dr. Liu as trustworthy dentist in Los Angeles area.

Xiaolei L. from South Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Liu has a kind, friendly, patient personality. He is also a capable and trustworthy dentist from my point of view even though I may not be in a perfect position to judge his professionalism. He also has a good connection with UCLA dental school, which provides convenience once certain exam involves the cutting edge equipments there. Dr. Liu is bilingual, speaking perfect English and Chinese, which certainly helps when it is necessary to explain to patients with variety of culture backgrounds. Dr. Liu has been the dentist for me and my family for more than 10 years, doing regular teeth cleaning, as well as other more complicated procedures. The processes have been always smooth and satisfactory. Dr. Liu is also willing to consider the patients financial concerns and help the patients in every way that we can think of. I’ve recommended him to many of my friends and colleagues. If possible, I’d like to recommend him to more people who need reliable, trustworthy dental services.

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


Dr. Liu has been the dentist for my family in the last 10+ years. He is a great person and skillful doctor. He is very experienced in taking care of many different kinds of teeth. Because he also teaches at UCLA, he knows the new technologies in the dental area. All his staff are very helpful and friendly, and speak both English and Chinese. He has several offices, the one I go most often is at Wilshire Blvd and Federal Ave, close to UCLA. His office opens on Saturdays, so my children can see dentist without missing school. For every appointment, I always receive a reminder phone call two days before, so I have never forgotten an appointment. I had two implants done in his office in the past four years for the two teeth I lost since I was a child. I was so hesitant to do the implant procedure, because the idea of put a screw into my jaw just scared the hell of out me. However, the procedure was actually no pain at all, although it took several visits to the dental office due to the nature of the surgery. Most important of all, both of the implanted new teeth work perfectly so far. It is really worth the time and the money. My family goes to his office for teeth cleaning and regular check every six months. Dr. Liu is also an expert for young children’s teeth care. Both of my children started to see him since about two years old, they are teenagers now and both have white and strong teeth I recommended Dr. Liu to many of my coworkers and friends. So far everyone has a pleasant experience with his service.

Well, I’m sold. I was a longtime client of Dr. Peter Lu in the same office before he retired (and had Judy cleaning my teeth regularly back since the 90s when she was with Dr. Glucksman). Both are gone now. But after three visits, I’ll be sticking with Dr. Liu and with Betty cleaning my teeth as long as I reside in the city. Dr. Liu has the same delicate touch when it came to fillings, along with a similar gregarious personality and recommendations that were recommended but never forced. The one big advantage over Dr. Lu is that similar work done on my teeth has been easier on my wallet so far, and I’m extremely appreciative of that. For any prior clients of Dr. Lu who were wary, I recommend continuing with Dr. Liu as your dentist.

Joe Q. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love Dr Liu’s place. The staff members are super friendly and extremely considerate. The doctors are gentle, skillful and informative. They always explain things in details, including pro and cons of treatment plans, and the cost. There is never worry over rip-off of any kind. Actually I believe they offer the best price vs quality on the Westside. I’ve been having regular cleaning, 2 root canals and 1 implant done so far, and the work has been very nice and neat. Can’t recommend them more!

Sam T. from Thousand Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Liu’s office always provides amazing service; our family was introduced to the office a few years ago and we haven’t looked back since! The staff is amiable and efficient. Dr. Liu himself is extremely knowledgeable and honest, and constantly goes out of his way to help his patients. We would like to thank Dr. Liu and his staff for the years of good service, and we will undoubtedly continue to visit him for years to come.

I feel so lucky to have found Dr. Liu’s office in Agoura and have been meaning to write a review for a while. I first found this office when I had a huge cavity in my wisdom tooth. I wasn’t happy with my previous dentist and I let the cavity go too long before taking care of it. It was extremely painful, keeping me up at night. I found Dr. Liu through my insurance’s directory of contracted providers. When I mentioned I was in pain, his office found an appointment time for me right away. When I met with him, I was really panicked about the tooth and the pain I was in. Dr. Lieu was incredibly patient and caring. He gave me options to save the tooth or extract it and talked about the considerations for both. Since it was my last remaining wisdom tooth and didn’t oppose another tooth, I decided to have it extracted. When I had my other wisdom teeth pulled out, years ago, with a different provider, it was a little traumatic and took a while to heal. I went in to Dr. Liu with that in mind. The experience was the complete opposite. He extracted the tooth in 5 minutes, expertly and painlessly. Literally, painlessly. When I saw the tooth on the table afterward, the roots were enormous, and the cavity looked like it took up 1/3 of the surface area of the tooth.  Considering the length of the roots and the fragility of the tooth, I was extra impressed with how he expertly took it out in one piece. I’ve since been back for other visits, cleanings, x rays and to have an old  filling fixed. Every time, I was so pleased with the service and felt like I was in really expert hands. The office is no frills, but the patience, attention to detail and sensitivity I experience each time are exactly what I was always hoping to find in a dentist. I have recommended Dr. Liu to family members and friends, confident that they will be well taken care of.

I’ve been going to Dr Liu’s dental office for over five years, and I am glad to say that I have found a most reliable and experienced dental office for me and my entire family.  Dr Liu has over thirty years of experience and is a professor at the UCLA school of dentistry. I trust him entirely with my oral health. He is willing to take his patients financial needs in consideration and comes up with treatment plans that accommodate our insurance. I highly highly recommend Dr Liu.

Bin L. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Liu has been my dentist fro the past 18 years. Now my whole family is seeing him, including my 5 year old daughter. Dr. Liu has 2 locations, one in Agoura hills, the other near UCLA. Dr. Liu is very knowledgeable and keeps up with the new development/technologies in his field. Every time I come in, I am impressed by the new equipments he adds to his clinics (I come in every 6 months). Specifically, Dr. Liu is very good with children. My daughter always behaves at her best in Dr. Liu’s office!

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


I have been seeing Dr.Liu since I came to LA 5 or 6 years. I’ve had teeth problems bothered me long time and now they are gone. I never liked any dental place as My memory about them were painful. But I really like Dr. Liu’s clinic and recommended to my friends and family. They are honest, professional and friendly. Highly recommended!!

Yu H. from Porter Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family have been visiting Dr. Liu’s dental clinic over 17 years, and have 2 routine visits a year. Dr. Liu’s exceptional skills and caring are the reason why we never change our dentist.  He not only takes care of our teeth, he also communicates with my kids. My two teenage kids love to talk him and become mutual friend. Always greeted with a great, ‘genuine’ smile. Staff is always on time, and if you are early and they are finished with previous patient, they bring you right in, no needless waiting around. Extremely clean facilities. They have a unique blend of being highly professional, along with kindness and consideration. Even after a simple cleaning, Dr. Liu, no matter how busy he is, will come to check if you have any questions or concerns. If you should call with a question or need, they don’t say we will check and get back to you, it’s an immediate response. We can’t wait for next visit. Thank you Dr. Liu!

Lauren Y. from Porter Ranch, Porter Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was very anxious about extracting my wisdom teeth, but Dr. Liu and his team made me feel well taken care of. Also, they take Medi-Cal/Denti-Cal! He played his operation room playlist and made sure I understood every step of the process (since I was conscious during the operation with local anesthesia). When I panicked during the operation, they took their time to take breaks and have me regroup. He answered all my questions and concerns even after the surgery. Overall, highly recommended dental practice. They truly care about their patients!

Kathaliya I. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


My lower left wisdom tooth was impacted, and I needed to find a dentist office that takes my insurance. I found this place a bit far from where I stay but I didn’t mind since everyone is so great. Everyone in the office is super kind, patient and super accommodating. When I had gone in for my wisdom tooth extraction I was scared out of my mind, especially at the fact I would be awake while they do all of that inside my mouth. But Dr. Liu was super kind and understanding, while answering all my questions. Next thing you know he was finished in under 30 minutes! He was very accessible afterwards, if I had any questions regarding the healing process. Overall after having pretty bad dentist experiences, this office is the best one! I will be coming here for a long time! Thank you Dr. Liu and everyone! 🙂

Justin T. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Liu for my dental needs for over 12 years now. Even though I moved to both OC and Riverside, I still make the trip out to Dr. Liu because he and his staff do such an awesome job. Dr. Liu always takes time to make sure everything is taken care of with my teeth and gums. He also explains everything clearly and answers any and every question I might have. He did my wisdom teeth extractions (two were impacted) and did such an amazing job that my mouth didn’t even hurt the next day!

Trent G. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Liu is a phenomenal dentist. Going to dental appointments is not always everyone’s favorite activities, but Dr. Liu and his staff make the experience as painless as possible. He and his team are quick and efficient, and always do great work. Some dentists may try to oversell you procedures, but Dr. Liu always goes to great lengths to explain what he is doing and the options available. He has been my dentist for the last 15 years — a real testament to his skill and professionalism.

Tiffany S. from Berkeley, CA (Source: Yelp)


The best dentist I’ve ever had! He’s so thorough and tells me all the things wrong with my teeth. I always leave his office feeling better about the state of my teeth health. He gives good advice about how to better manage whatever problems you have with your teeth and is very up to date with current practices in dentistry. I’m a hypochondriac so I appreciate his thoroughness. HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM FOR A CLEANING OR ANY DENTISTRY NEEDS YOU HAVE!!!!!
