    I had an amazing experience with Dr. Lai and associates. Dr. Lai is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to, and this can be said for the rest of the staff as well. This was by far the best dentist experience I've ever had.

    I arrived very late at the dentist (30 mins to be exact) and the reception Debra was very kind and patient. She still explained everything to be and took me in. Dr. Lai didn’t rush the examination and still took his time to go over everything in detail. He took time to explain what wa going on with my teeth and any suggestions to avoid wear. Even the cleaning was very thorough. Amazing customer service.

    The staff worked with me to make me comfortable regarding quotes and insurance coverage confirmation and listened to my concerns regarding treatment. Dr. Lai was very hospitable and clear regarding the planned treatment and performed my corrections efficiently. The hygienist is also very thorough and did a great job.
