Kirsten is a top level professional, and one of the best dentists I've ever had. Her consultation is always with the client's best intentions in mind. My teeth have never looked better and it's all thanks to her.

My visit with Dr. Lui was great! Both her and the staff there were all very friendly and I felt looked after. She is clear, concise, and very gentle. My last appointment was a filling and it was very well done.I had to go and get my filling redone two times at my last dentist. I'm not nervous or worried when I go to the dentist anymore. Thank you, Dr. Lui!

Honestly one of the best experiences I've had in a doctor's office (and I work in healthcare!). Everyone is extremely friendly and they really get to know you as a patient. They take the time to explain everything to you andeven warn you when something may be uncomfortable. Will definitely be recommending this office!

Dr Lui is wonderful. I'm very nervous having dental work done. She listened when I explained this. I can honestly say she made me feel more at ease than I expected to. Jessica S helped during my work and she wasvery accommodating also. I had a cleaning previously with Robin and she's very good. Needless to say I'm very happy that NK Family Dental is where I go. I plan to see them regularly for a long time. I would definitely recommend them and have.

I am absolutely terrified of the dentist and know I need lots of work done. I have been to two prior to Kirsten and after my appointment knew it was her that I wanted to continue my care with. I wasput at ease by the whole staff. I wasn't overwhelmed with all the work that I knew was going to be done, it was explained very easily for me. The best part was I didn't have to go to another dentist for my extraction, she did everything! Also, I was totally comfortable and taken care of with such a gentle hand that still got the job done!!! The tooth fairy does exist!!!!

I have always hated the dentist, but appointments with Dr. Lui and Dr. Tran are like visiting with friends you haven't seen in awhile. They really have their patients best interests at heart and work with you to find an affordableplan for your dental work. The rest of the staff is extremely professional and kind and make you feel comfortable as soon as you walk in. It's also very rare to find a dentist that actually cleans your teeth and walks you through everything they are doing inside your mouth. All in all, Dr. Lui is a wonderful dentist and I highly recommend visiting her or Dr. Tran.

I went in for a cleaning. Doctor Lui had good bedside manner and was very friendly (along with the receptionist and hygienist) but I felt like the cleaning was very rushed and not thorough. Most of the time was spent makingsmall talk and the actual cleaning itself only lasted maybe 10 minutes...if that. I felt like they could've taken a little more time cleaning my teeth and not doing such a hasty job.

Dr Kristen Lui is an amazing doctor with ability to explain complex procedural details in simple terms. To add to that, the entire procedure was a great experience, perfectly done, with little to no post procedure pain. Dr Lui is anexcellent dentist and the entire practice, including the assistants, technicians and receptionists make it a personal mission to create a very welcome and comfortable environment for their patients. Very happy to have found them. They have pretty much 5 star reviews when I found them and now I know why!
