A word from our Doctor. (more on Liu in the about Dr. Alan Liu section)

Patient satisfaction is our number one goal. Throughout the years we have had great success with making our patients happy, If for any reason you are not treated with the most respect by any staff member or if your experience here was not the best experience you’ve had at a dental office, I like to hear about it. I will personally handle all concerns. All patients are treated like our family. Please feel free to contact me at my personal email at alan@alanliudds.com
