I like the way that the doctor spent time answering my questions and explaining everything very well, telling me about the problems my teeth are having and what my options are with clear goal.

Catherine Chiu is the best dentist I ever had. She is professional beyond expectations: Experienced, organized, confident, and consistently perfect in what she does. I've been her patient for around 7 years now, and will stay with her for therest of my life. I also brought my husband to her, who is notoriously picky with doctors, and who is as fascinated with her as I am.

Visited Dr. Chiu for fillings. After the anesthetic wore down after the treatment, I developed terrible headache, nausea, discomfort and burning sensation on that side of my face. I waited a week and called her office to ask frontdesk ppl tolet her know. They did not get back to me... ((

This was my first visit with Dr. Chui. She was friendly and welcoming. She asked about special concerns, and listened carefully to me. Dr. Chui was extremely thorough. She explained exactly what she was doing, and was careful to make mecomfortable. Dr. Chui spent a very long time on this first visit so she could get to know me and my dental health as a new patient. I highly recommend her.

I haven't been to the dentist in many years so I was really nervous for my appointment, but Dr. Chui and everyone in her office were excellent and really made me feel more comfortable. She is very professional, but easy totalk to. She let me know what she was going to do before she did it and was very thorough in her exam. And at the end she took the time to go over everything with me. I really appreciated it and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for good a good dentist.

Good. Asked the patient for their treatment preferences rather than just proceeding forward and assuming, shows consideration. Kind and knowledgeable dentist. Unfortunately, she's fully booked, so getting a follow-up appointment is difficult. Can be couple months wait. :(

Dr. Chiu and her associates are the best. I've been coming here since I was a baby. I have tried other dentists due to insurance changes and what not and she's been number one !!

Dr. Chiu was very friendly and knowledgeable. She and her staff were kind and provided good feedback about the overall health oh my mouth. We looked at my x-rays together and talked about ways to keep my teeth in good health.I felt comfortable and enjoyed my time getting my teeth checked and cleaned.

Very professional practice with state-of-the-art treatments. Dr Chiu reviewed my medical history first and initiated my teeth cleaning although her hygienist and she work closely together to make it a wonderful experience. I was very relaxedduring my cleaning which was totally void of that annoying scraping instead it was a very relaxing sonic cleaning. They use computerized technology so you leave with a clear assessment of your gums, the health of bones and roots and any issues on her watch list. I was interested in teeth whitening and she explained all the options to me. There were children in the waiting room and they came in for a check up so it seems like it would be a good place for families as well. I would recommend her practice to anybody.
