Dr. T. Lau has been my dentist of choice for over ten years. Early on I realized that I no longer dreaded to have dental work done. Dr. Lau never acts hurried and is gentle, especially when numbing my mouth. Iam comfortable getting procedures done which would have been stressful for me before. I am happy to recommend him and his work.

Dr. Lau and his entire staff are very professional and extremely caring. It was my first time here and it was by far the best experience I have ever had. My situation ended up being more complicated and took longer thaninitially anticipated. I never felt rushed. They were just focused on making sure they did the best they could and that I was comfortable. Overall it's simply a higher level of care.

Honestly the root canal took almost 4 hours to finish. I got there a half an hour before my appointment and they took me in within the first few minutes. But then he didn't finish my root canal until 12:40. Way longer than I expected.

As always, Dr. Lau has a wonderful demeanor, and really cares about my dental health. By explaining what is going on in my mouth, he paints a picture of the problem, and makes treatment/prevention so much easier. It's wonderful that adentist can really focus on the problems, and not just on repeat business. The candy bowl in the waiting room doesn't serve candy, because that would be unethical, even though it would be good for business. This is the embodiment of attention to detail!
