As most of us are, I hate going to the Dentist but Dr. Xiao was great about explaining my condition and making me feel 100% relaxed and comfortable the entire time. Thanks to her gentle approach I did experience any discomfort or pain through two fillings and a deep cleaning. Great experience!

I have been seeing Dr. Xiao for the last 2 or 3 years. She personally cleans my teeth, her exam is thorough and the tools she uses are the latest and most sophisticated. Even when I have had more than a cleaning, it hasn't hurt to have her work on my mouth. She is fast and efficient but also friendly and personable as is all of her staff. I try and schedule my California visits from Arizona to coincided with my need to see her. I highly recommend her.

I always recommend Dr Xiao to my friends. She's definitely the best dentist I've ever had. She's attentive and proactive. She recognizes problems before they become worse. She's friendly. Her approach is gentle and her procedure explanations are clear. I'm usually very anxious with dental work, but her approach helps me stay calm. She's been my dentist since she arrived in Livermore in 2009. My husband also has her as a dentist and agrees that she's great.

I have a high degree of anxiety about dental visits, had some very bad experiences with dentists in the past. My son & husband recommended Dr. Xiao. Dr. Xiao was very understanding at the initial consult and gave my a prescription to relive my anxiety before the appointment to replace some broken fillings. She was very careful to check my comfort level during the entire procedure. I would recommend her very highly.

My appointment was for a filling and also a crown, Dr Xiao and her assistant Alex were excellent throughout. Every step was explained clearly, and I never felt the slightest bit of anxiety - which for me is amazing....usually a Dentist visit is quite traumatic! In part, this was helped by her gorgeous little dog who sat on my lap for most of the procedure....he's a lovely companion and I'm sure, helped to calm me. Outstanding customer service, thank you!

I found Dr. Xiao on Yelp after checking with my insurance company on which dentists took my insurance. I was apprehensive about finding a new dentist when I moved to this area about 3 months ago. Dr. Xiao is amazing. I liked her from the moment I met her. She is competent, efficient, and has a very warm personality. The office is modern, large, and clean and the staff is professional and friendly. The best part of it all is the little dog, Nadar(?). He slept on my lap the entire I was in treatment, which was almost 2 hours. Patting him relieved some of the anxiety one experiences at the dentist. And just now I received a follow up call from Dr. Xiao to check on how I am doing. Who does that?

I recently transferred to Dr. Xiao's office after relocating to the Livermore area and have been very impressed with her and her staff. As one example, my previous dentist was never able to numb my lower teeth completely for fillings and blamed it on my clenching habit. However, Dr. Xiao employed different techniques that kept me pain free during the process. I also don't think I've ever received so much personal attention from any of my previous dentists. Bottom line: I highly recommend Dr. Xiao.

Read countless reviews until I decided to try Dr . Xiao . Hands down the best experience I've ever had at the dentist !! From the minute you walk through the door you are warmly greeted and offered water or coffee. I sat down for no longer than it took me to put my purse down and grab a magazine and I was already called to go in . She cleans your teeth herself and is very gentle and most importantly very thorough . She even puts chapstick on your lips when they get dry as she's working in your mouth !! I had a few fillings and felt no pain as she numbed the area .. Wow!! Truely exceptional and I can't forget her warm and kind staff . So glad I found Dr . Xiao I will never go anywhere else :-)
