Verified Patient Reviews
I would highly recommend Dr Xiaos office to my friends and family. Dr Xiao is exceptionally patient and kind . This was the best dental experience I’ve had in my entire life.
Dr. Xiao is great with young children. She was able to put my five year old at ease so that he would cooperate. She has given all of my family members and myself careful and thorough exams.
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!
Dr. Xiao is caring and professional. She does an excellent job.
Excellent staff and over all experience! :)
Simply put - the best experience I have had - period.
Dr. Xiao was very knowledgeable and friendly and had an amazing staff. I will definitely be going back to see her.
awesome Dentist would recommend to anyone
Dr Xiao is the best dentist I have ever been to. I recommend her to all my friends.
Excellent as usual and fun!
Always a pleasure to go to my appointment. I also appreciate the reminder calls. I drive all the way from the Peninsula for my appointments and it is always worth it.
dr Wanlan Xiao explained my problem and gave a cry clear and thorough advise on what to do next.. She was reassuring!!
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.
Excellent Dentist. I travel all the way from accross the bay because she is so good.
Best Dental Office in the Livermore Area. Great Doctor, wonderful staff and NO PAIN.
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.
If you are looking for a new dentist .. Look no further Dr.Xiao is the best that l have ever been too !!!
She was very thorough, friendly and I enjoyed talking with her.
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.
Without question my best experience with a new dentist.
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?
She is a great dentist. Very gentle, professional and does great work.
Very personalized and profesional service.She does excellent work with minimal or no pain.
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.
My teeth are so well taken care of! I highly recommend to anyone looking for a great dentist.
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 :-)
Not that I will ever love going to the dentist, but I do like going to see her and Vader and ALL of the staff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dr Xiao is an excellent dentist. She is very thorough with my dental cleanings. I also recommend Dr. Xiao for Invisalign braces. That was an excellent experience during my entire time of the Invisalign treatment.
Oooh, Dr Xiao and trusty staff make novacaine and drilling fun!
I always look forward to my dental visits. Dr. Xiao is the best, I love the fact that Vader their service dog is there. I recommend this office to anyone who has fear of the dentist. No worries here they will put your mind at easy.
Doctor Xiao is very professional Dentist and wonderful human being . I am lucky to have Doctor Wanlan Xiao as my Dentist.
Awesome ! I had a payment due which kinda threw me off my financial situation and she let me pay for my next pay chk which was next Thursday .. How cool is that ???
Dr. Xiao is very friendly, relaxed and does excellent work. She has state of the art equipment. She demonstrates tremendous expertise. I highly recommend her.
Wonderful. The office is amazing... she is very informative and uses some great tech. Very painless and sensitive to any issues you may have.
Dr. Xiao was highly competent and seems committed to helping me manage my condition. I came away feeling like I was in good hands.
One of the best experiences at a dentist's office I've ever had!
Dr. Xiao is a wonderful dentist. Both my sons and I really like going to see her - she and her staff are professional, friendly and warm. We already feel like part of the family!
Dr. Xiao was great. Very thorough and explained everything. I feel she not only looked at what was "wrong" with my teeth/mouth but also discussed preventative measures I can take to remain healthy.
She is great! Very professional.
Dedicated to give you personal care. Knows your case real well. Suggests topics of improvement and follows up. Best dentist I ever had in my life.
Prompt, informative, and compassionate. I highly recommend Dr. Xiao to anyone looking for a warm and friendly Dentist.
The entire staff was wonderful! I am new to the area and was referred by a co-worker, so happy I took the recommendation!
Definitely the best dental office I have ever been to. She is very welcoming and personable. It was the first time I didn't feel rushed in a dentists office. Highly recommended.
My first time visit at Dr. Xiao's office and it was wonderful! She is very knowledgeable and enjoyable to talk to!
