Dr. Yu is the most perfect dentist I have ever encountered. Her work is tedious and very long lasting as in permanent. She is worth every moment and dollar spent on her services and then some. She cares about her patients and Show morehas a very unique way of making her patients feel comfortable. She is humorous and very professional. I can't imagine going to anyone else. My family and friends really enjoy the services as well. She has skills that surpass most in her field and takes her work very serious. I thoroughly enjoy and appreciate her and her staff. The Best Dentist Office in the Bay Area!!!!!

Dr. Yu and her staff are super prompt and thorough. My usual provider was unable to provide me with an appointment for another three weeks but Dr. Yu scheduled me for the following day on her day off and provided me prompt treatmeShow morent. She’s very thorough and communicates very well. They are very transparent with out of pocket costs as well. Now I understand why they are so highly rated.
