Dr. Liu is super nice, professional and has great customer service! She has done an amazing job cleaning and filings on my teeth and was very gentle. My husband and I love coming back to her! Her staff are also friendly! I’m glad I found her!

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


Dr Liu is an awesome doctor. She has been our family doctor from the last 8 years . I have referred to my other friends . She has perfect soft hands as I didn’t even feel a bit while she was doing deep cleaning of my teeth. Latest she did do whitening of my teeth . I could see a big difference in the appearence of my teeth from before. I would recommend her to everyone

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


Dr Liu is definitely one of a kind. We had history with other doctors trying to provide unnecessary services due to us (family of 3) having a well covered insurance. Dr Liu, however, is honest and straight to the point on what’s wrong. Highly recommended!

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


Dr. Liu is one of the best dentists that I have used. She is professional, honest and have a full house of friendly staff. Our family of four has been to her practice for years through a referral of a friend, and even my 3 years old loves to go to her office. Highly recommend.

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


Extremely happy with dr Liu and her amazing staff. My family and I are returning customers for our yearly checkups, Dr Liu is honest and will tell you exactly what’s going on. I appreciate this specially after trying other dentist offices where they wanted to overcharge me. Her staff is amazing! We love Reina! she is the sweetest and helped me in the past when I needed a last minute appointment. She will try her best to accommodate you and will work with your time. The office is always clean and they have a small parking option in the back available. COVID update: Since covid started I visited her office once and I felt they were responsible with the steps taken. When you arrive you wait in your car until they come for you to avoid being next to another patient. They also take your temperature before letting you in. Everyone is using a mask at all time, and they provide hand sanitizers and a restroom so you can clean your hands before going to her office

Tanya K. from Agoura Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Went to Dr Liu for cleaning twice. Very quick and efficient. It was quite painless and she allowed me to listen to podcasts through my headphones during the procedure so it would be easier to zone out. So good! The office looks like it could use sprucing up but the quality of care is, I think, much better than the interior decor would suggest

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


Dr. Yiwen Liu has been my dentist throughout the course of almost three years. I can not begin to explain how Dr.Yiwen actually changed my life for the better. Even though the wait seemed almost endless, I am greatly satisfied with Dr.Yiwen’s ortho expertise. She ensures that everything is running smoothly and would much rather do everything step by step rather than rushing the process to make certain that you are content with how your smile looks. Her assistant Reina is more than helpful and will work with YOUR time. She is a caring person who gets to know you personally and sees you as a friend rather than just a random patient. I am so excited to say that I am finally getting my braces removed and I am now able to smoke without feeling insecure about it

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


Dr. Liu is the best dentist I have ever had. She is attentive and accommodating and she genuinely cares about her patients. Highly recommended!

Jeremiah V. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I cannot put into words how awesome Dr. Liu is! Excellence and professionalism drips all the way down to her staff. Very accommodating and very responsive even through texts! I had an issue with my insurance since I was between jobs and still found a way to work things out. Now that I live in the area I’ll def be being my family here too

Rosa L. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I hate going to the dentist…I believe I had a traumatizing experience as a little girl. Dr. Liu has helped me put my fears aside. I can finally trust again. She is so gentle and takes her time with the work. She’s not like other dentists that start working in you literally the moment they finished sticking the needle with anesthesia in your mouth. She’s very reasonable as far as prices go. I no longer have dental insurance and find her prices to be. Did I mention Dr. Liu’s staff is the friendliest staff in town?

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


Had been a patient of Dr. Liu for more than 2 years, and finally gotten to write a review for how great she is. Very professional yet compassionate, which is hard to come by. Warm, gentle demeanor with genuine concern for your health and finances. I have since recommended a friend to her and he has great experience with Dr. Liu as well

Cara M. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Liu + her staff were very nice and helpful. When I went in for my first time with her office after looking at all the reviews, I had high expectations, and they delivered! They answered all my questions and Dr. Liu was very gentle when it came to my sensitive gums. It was also great getting to know her, she was very warm and sweet. Excited to have found an awesome new dentist in this area! Will definitely recommend

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


I never really liked dentists, but Dr Liu and her staff are the best I’ve encountered.She is really gentle and always make me feel comfortable. She’s the only dentist I trust

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


My friend recommended Dr. Liu to me, and she has been my dentist for a year. She is very patient and professional, and she never sells anything to me. The staff here are also very friendly and warm. I really enjoy the experience here

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


I was referred to Dr. Liu by an amazing friend. I was concerned about a small hole on my bottom right teeth. Since I’m going to UCLA for a root canal treatment. I was scared it was another cavity turning into another root canal. I need it to seek another opinion besides from my general dentist that I no longer trust. I called and left a message yesterday (10/17/18) Dr.Liu called back today and was able to squeeze me even knowing that she had scheduled appointments. When I came in, the receptionist was very kind and gave me papers to fill out and happier knowing they do take my insurance. Plus, the waiting wasn’t long. When I was called in, Dr. Liu was very kind and welcoming. She asked various questions and goes into details for my reason for my visit. Also, she answered all my questions, my concerns and left with an ultimate solution!  Definitely coming back for my upcoming appointment and have decided to change general dentist! Thankful to Dr. Liu and her staffs!

Gayle A. from Culver City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Liu and her staff are always personable and friendly when I go in for my biannual appointments …and I’ve been going to them for about six years now. Can’t believe it’s been that long! I’ve had dentists before that feel like they’re scamming for services or work. And I’ve never once felt that way here. Dr Liu takes the time to speak with you not only about oral hygiene but also about your life – and that’s the kind of trust I like to build when someone’s poking around with a sharp object in your mouth!

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


I was one of those people who absolutely dreaded going to the dentist, until I found Dr. Liu. Due to my old aversion, I had not gone to a dentist for several years. Then my employer added dental benefits, and a couple of friends swore by Dr. Liu, so I gave her a try. I’m glad I did because she has reversed my fear of dentists and convinced me that regularly visiting a good dentist is essential. She also fixed a lot of dental issues I had as a result of avoiding dentists. Things I appreciate about Dr. Liu: (1) Dr. Liu is meticulous. (A lot of the other things on this list probably results from this.) The first time I had my teeth cleaned, I was surprised by how carefully she went over each tooth, unlike some dentists I had in the past who rushed through. She might take slightly longer, but you can be sure that she did not skimp to save time. I’ve also had fillings and night/bite guards and crowns done by her, and with each of these things, she took her time, made sure the bite is comfortable, and spent ample time to make sure it’s done perfectly. She is very thorough. (2) Dr. Liu is very nice and gentle. She’s friendly and puts me at ease, which helps this nervous patient to relax. She is also gentle. Again, I’m comparing to dentists I’ve had before, but Dr. Liu does not just yank on your face of shove her hands in your mouth. She’s very gentle and makes sure the patient is as comfortable as possible — a very important quality when she is literally up in your grill!! (3) The office is squeaky clean, from the reception area to the various rooms. None of the equipment ever look dusty or rusty. Tools are kept in sealed and sterile plastic packaging until they are opened for use on my teeth. Even the restroom is always clean. (4) Dr. Liu and Reina the receptionist are friendly, thoughtful, and very accommodating. I get reminders in the mail for cleanings, and email reminders for upcoming appointments. When I’ve had to cancel last minute, they never give me a hard time. (I was originally referred by a friend who went to Dr. Liu on an emergency basis after slipping in the tub and chipping two front teeth. Dr. Liu fixed her up that very morning, and the repaired teeth looked so good that I didn’t even know they had been chipped until my friend told me.) I hope this helps folks who are looking for a good dentist on the Westside or are skiddish about seeing a dentist in general. I even referred my sister, who also now sings Dr. Liu’s praise. I like Dr. Liu so much that even though I recently lost dental coverage, I still go to her and pay out of pocket. I don’t know if there are cheaper dentists out there, but I’d rather pay a bit more for someone I trust.Finally, I rarely write reviews, but felt especially compelled to provide a detailed review after reading some of the bizarre and negative reviews that have been posted here. Dr. Liu is the only dentist that I have ever encountered at this office, I’ve never had or witnessed any hostile interactions between the staff and any of the patients, and the office has always been tidy and clean in the past 2-3 years that I’ve been going there

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


Dr. Liu is great.  Another dentist in Glendale told me I needed to have 6 old fillings re-done, to the tune of $1200 (I had no ins. at the time).  First visit to Dr. Liu, she didn’t see anything wrong with my teeth; second visit (6 mos. later) she noticed one old molar filling coming out, plus decay on another molar, so just this week I had those two fillings done.  It was the LEAST painful filling experience I’ve ever had, and I’ve had a lot of fillings.  I was in and out in an hour, with no wait, and the Novocain wore off within an hour to 90 minutes after.  $50 for two fillings (I have DELTA DENTAL ins. which is under $200/yr) is a good deal in my book.  SHE ALSO FILED/ROUNDED ONE OF MY FRONT TEETH I HAD ROUGHED UP YEARS AGO, ABSOLUTELY FREE.  Great experience.  Highly recommended. This is a small operation with I believe Dr. Liu being the only dentist in the office, and the building exterior is nothing to snap a picture of.  BUT she has all the necessary tools inside to get everything done that you need to keep your mouth clean and healthy, and she won’t scam you, and it won’t cost you nearly as much as most other slimy dentists just looking to increase their bottom line

Danielle R. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Liu and staff are absolutely amazing. My previous dentist left me terrified and unwilling to see another dentist for 8 years until I was recommended to Dr. Liu because I needed a crown on a cracked tooth. She makes you feel completely comfortable and stays with you THE WHOLE TIME (unlike most dentists who double book)…even if it’s just for a cleaning.  Her and her staff make you feel welcome and are very knowledgeable. I would recommend to anyone!

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


Dr yiwen liu is excellent caring  and very patient highly recommend it for the whole family especially the children because they give  them trust my experience is very friendly establishment I have 2 children  1 is 5 and 8 they have been going to her office since they are 6 months old. and prices are very affordable if you do not have health insurance. personally all the staff is friendly and bilingual professional. Sometimes if you come before your appt time and they are available they will see you right away!

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


Doctor Liu is very informative and great dentist! After going to varies dentist through-out my adulthood. And, in general a fear if the practice. She has helped get my mouth back in order. Highly recommend her if your looking for a dentist

Frank L. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)


A great female dentist. Very kind, gentle, and she did quality dental treatment for me and my family.  Her office is located in the west of Los Angeles County area. She specialize in several categories. I was very happy that she is very knowledge on all of the Veneer Crown, Filling, Bleaching, and all the details of my treatment. Oh and all of her staff treats me and my family like a five star hotel customer. They really pampered us it really makes us feel like we are their family.  For all of you that fear of the dentist.   God Bless

K. B. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


HIGHLY RECOMMEND! This is a no-frills dental office that provides quality care. Dr. Liu is great… She did all my treatments and was very gentle and diligent. I was seeing a different dentist before that recommended me all sorts of unnecessary treatment that ended up costing me more $$$ and more dental pain. If you want a trustworthy dentist who can get the job done, Dr. Liu is the one for you. Shoutout to her team for being so kind, efficient, and responsive! Sadly I don’t live in the area anymore so I stopped seeing her

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


Love Dr. Liu and her staffs. They understand my special circumstances and set up an appointment right away. I had been suffering from pain on lower teeth and I suspect I’m having a cavity. I couldn’t make an appointment on my other dentist due to schedule conflicts so i ended up going to see Dr. Liu. I mentioned I had pain and might have a cavity and they set up an appointment next day! The dental office seems old and not a fancy looking office, but their service is good and professional. As for parking, there are 3-4 parking spots behind the office

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


I’ve been going to Dr. Liu for a super long time and I can’t believe it didn’t occur to me to write a Yelp review sooner. I generally associate Yelp with food, but I’m glad I can use it to support my dentist! Dr. Liu is friendly, personable, professional, and all around fantastic. She and her staff take the time to make sure all is well with my dental health and are thorough in the procedures being done during the appointments, Both Dr. Liu and Reina have clearly explained my insurance coverage and benefits as questions have come up over the years. I was just in this last week and in catching up with both Reina prior to my appointment and with Dr. Liu at the start of my visit, I was reminded of how nice it is to have that kind of easy rapport and familiarity that’s been built up over the last 10+ years as a result of being a patient of theirs. A friend of mine referred me to Dr. Liu about 12 years ago. Since then, I’ve referred my friends too (who have then referred their friends) to Dr. Liu’s office because of the high quality of care and overall fabulousness of the office/staff. I was living in West LA when I first started going to see Dr. Liu, and even after I moved to Altadena and Alhambra, I still drove all the way back just to see Dr. Liu for my dental appointments. Finding a great dentist is worth the LA traffic!

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


Five-star dentist! Dr. Liu and her staff are knowledgeable and friendly.  I’ve been a patient for almost five years and I can count on a timely and thorough check-up.  I visit two times a year and she never disappoints

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


This review is long overdue. I have been going to Dr. Liu’s office for over 5 years now, and cannot be happier with the service I receive there. I originally came to find Dr. Liu because my previous dentist stopped accepting my insurance. I’ve never been a fan of going to the dentist, but I immediately felt at ease with Dr. Liu. She’s friendly and warm, yet professional all at once. After my first examination and cleaning, I felt enough trust in her to schedule a wisdom tooth extraction for the same month. For everything I have needed so far, she has been fantastic. All the staff I’ve encountered have also been friendly and helpful. Reina at the front counter has been working there since I started going to the office, which I always take as a plus. The only negative I can think of is that they are always playing Food Network in the lobby and examination rooms, so I am super hungry after my visit. Joking aside, I completely recommend coming here. I like her so much that when the office didn’t accept my dental insurance any longer, I switched insurance to keep her as my dentist!

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


I been going to Dr. Liu for 9 years now. She is a great doctor. She makes the visit comfortable and takes her time with each patient. I take my kids with her too because she makes sure they are comfortable and not traumatic like in other places. Her staff is very friendly and helpful. They always answer all your questions. Reina is the best! She always works with appointments and making it work for you. Dr. Liu cares about her patients. This place is the best!

Walter C. from Tempe, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to Dr. Liu back in 2009 by one of my health care doctors. She has been super accommodating with my schedule as last minute changes with work caused me to reschedule on numerous occasions.  Her staff is very friendly and she is great with cleaning my teeth and suggesting what I should do to maintain better dental health.  In addition, she is super gentle while doing an outstanding job. Her office is extremely clean and there is a small parking lot in the back along with plenty of street parking.  I highly recommend her to anyone seeking an honest, friendly and accommodating dentist.  She accepts most, if not all, PPO dental insurance plans. I haven’t had great luck with finding a quality dentist until now.  I’ve been through several dentists over the last 10 years and she is by far the best!

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


I had recently chipped off a big chunk from one of my molars and was desperately trying to find a dentist for a quick filling. My regular dentist and others I tried reaching out to were booked for weeks, even for an emergency! I was almost about to call it quits until I called Dr. Liu office. I described my situation to the front desk. She said they were booked as well but put me on hold and asked Dr. Liu if there was anything she could do. Dr. Liu confirmed that they were booked for the next 2 weeks but that she can at least have me come in to check on the tooth for a couple of minutes the following afternoon. I ecstatically agreed. When I arrived, the front desk was very nice and professional and was expecting me. She had me fill out the standard forms and I was in the dental chair within 5 minutes! Dr. Liu came in and inspected my tooth and gave me some advice on what and what not to do until I had my tooth filled. After looking her calendar over again and seeing that there was no immediate slots for me unless she had a cancellation, she left the room for a couple of minutes. When she came back, she asked if I had time for her to work on my tooth right now. Although I was on my lunch break, I said yes! Dr. Liu gave me local anesthetic (I didn’t even feel the needles) and gave the right amount to where I wasn’t overly numb but just where it needed to be. She put in a filling and was done in about 45 min. When she finished, I thanked her so much but she said, “Don’t thank me, thank the girls.” Apparently, they closed at 5pm and they all stayed an extra half hour or so to take care of me. Dr. Liu and her staff were top notch. I plan to return for my regular cleanings and checkups…assuming they’re not booked and have time for me. ; 

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


Dr Liu is very kind Doctor and has gentlest hands on earth. I did my regular checking and cleaning here. A year ago my tooth filling ended up a tooth canal, it was done by another doctor. And Dr Liu fixed my problem without any pain and stress.  And my teeth did not change color either. Alleluja!! All my family go Dr Liu as regular patients now. Highly recommend her. She loves your teeth more as you do. An care your feeling. Bless her!

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


Dr. Liu is the best! Here is why! She cares about her patients ! We even changed our medical plan  to be able to come see her! Inspections are very detailed – she never rushes – and the office staff is great – Reina is super alert to what is going on (and so is the Dr. Liu). There is no disconnect – you can talk to your doctor without being rushed! She explains things – and that helps getting better with teeth over time! I learned the habit of using a water pick  – and have been improving ever since, thanks to Dr. Liu! It’s a local, honest dental practice , that is not out for the upsale! A real doctor who cares about patients and dentistry! Thank you!!

Alex H. from San Pablo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve since referred a good friend to Dr. Liu and he not only loved the experience, but pointed out something really important! She’s very gentle and it makes a WORLD of difference. I only noticed that she does a very thorough job (which she’s does), but she’s also gentle. Kind of excited to go to the dentist this Thursday! Oh and if you don’t floss, you should start or you’re going to get and earful while you’re sitting helplessly in the dentist chair! Ha! I’m kidding Dr. Liu you’re awesome!

Bo Z. from Columbia, MO (Source: Yelp)


So happy to have found Dr. Liu! I am the type of person who have really weak teeth so everywhere I go the first thing I do is to research and find a good dentist. I have seen dentists in Missouri, Oregon and California. I have seen dentists at Kaiser, dental schools and various private practices. And I can say my experience with Dr. Liu is by far the best! She is so meticulous when it comes to cleaning and I did not experience an discomfort during the process and my teeth never felt so clean before. She just performed bonding to my teeth today to fix some unevenness in my teeth. And the way she approaches bonding is so different from all other dentists I have experienced before. She tried very hard to maintain my natural teeth and only roughened it enough to prep for the bonding process. And most importantly she shaped it so well that I can’t tell work has been done to it. Now my entire family sees Dr. Liu!

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


Had my teeth cleaned and examined here several times now. Great and detailed service, fair price, sweet and accommodating staff. Visit them! They’re a great office and Dr. Liu is a total sweetheart!
