Herrick Lai is the best dentist I've had. He is attentive, and had done all of his own exams cleanings, unlike other offices I've been to where they have a hygienist do the work for them and see you only fora few minutes. He examines your tongue, glands, and is very thorough with his cleanings. Highly recommended!

Exceptional job with teeth cleaning and explaining what he was going to be doing through the exam. Lastly, DrLai was gentle and tried his best to minimize any discomfort. Highly recommend him to anyone
