I have a mouth full of crowns, mostly from previous dentists. Dr Vu’s temporaries look and fieel like the finished product There is a srellar difference in Dr Vu’s flawkess work. She is an artist. It’s hard to know sheis doing sonething when she cleans and scales your teeth. Who knew such gentle, butterfly-loke, noninvasive movements get the job done equally as well as the usual method. Can’t recommend her highly enough. Really!

Dr. Vu is a lifesaver! I saw her for a second opinion after getting shady advice from a previous dentist. She saved me from having to get a totally unnecessary surgery-- sparing me so much pain and expense. Her bedside manneris lovely and warm, and her receptionist was nice and helpful, too. I'll definitely be back.

I had my first appointment with Dr. Vu yesterday and will absolutely be returning to her practice for my regular dental care. She was not in a rush and seemed happy to answer questions/concerns I had. I also really appreciated thatshe explained potential solutions to any problems without trying to sell lots of extra procedures or services right off the bat (something I've experienced time and time again at other medical providers)

As a patient that visits 2-3 times a year for the past two years, I can vouch that Dr Vu and staff are consistently friendly and professional. She is careful with her check ups and has a uniquely personal touch toher service that I have not experienced anywhere. Some little details that I notice and appreciate: mouth wash for pre and post checkup rinse, iPad on chair to play music or watch Netflix, puts lip balm on you before performing any work to prevent chapped lips, and most recently SMS text appointment confirmation and reminder. I have had many dentists, but she is by far my favorite.

I had dental surgery and a cosmetic implant in preparation for a crown. Dr. Vu's practice is very warm and professional. She spends a large amount of time pleasantly answering questions and explaining all procedures. Dr. Andrew Sorowitz isthe oral surgeon and he clearly enjoys his work and enthusiastically explains and answers all questions regarding his work. He is a talented clinician with a very pleasant chairside manner. This practice is the closest you'll get to boutique cosmetic services at a very reasonable price. I highly recommend this practice as a health care provider myself.

This is the second time I've been to Dr. Vu. The wait is short and all the staff are friendly. She really takes her time with me and makes sure I'm comfortable. I'll be getting veneers and was nervous about howthey would look. She had a mold created to show me what they would look like! I'm very excited to move forward!

This wasn't my first visit with Dr. Vu, and it definitely won't be my last. She's got an extremely gentle touch and an unmatched eye for aesthetics. At this visit I just got a cleaning, but, in the past, Dr. Vuhas done some restorative work on me - a porcelain crown that blends perfectly with the natural teeth around it. I recommend Dr. Vu to all of my friends and family in the city.

I've been going here for routine dental care for a little over a year now. Always a great experience. Always happy to see everyone. Dr.Vu is simply amazing. I've never looked forward to my dental appointments before. Really can't say enoughgood things. If you live or work in the area you need to make this your permanent dentist. Office is warm and cozy and Dr.Vu and Marion make me feel like I've been going there for years. Couldn't be happier!

Dr Vu was very friendly and thorough. She was gentle during my teeth cleaning so I felt no pain. My gums did not bleed. The only issue was that the front desk assistant was not in for the first 5 minutesso I could not get into the office. While you wait in the dentist chair you can browse netflixs on the iPad. Too bad I could not continue to watch while she was doing the teeth cleaning.

I'm interning here for the summer and really needed to see a dentist. I was so nervous to go because I've never gone or let alone had to find a dentist on my own without my parents. They made me feelso comfortable and it was a great experience. Dr. Vu is awesome and I can't wait to have her be my dentist when I move to the city after college!
