And at that moment, we share a common goal of expecting the greatest dental care from that visit. And great dental care means personalized, comfortable, pain-free dental care. I feel successful when patients leave, not only with healthier teeth, but with a smile because the only thing they felt was the highest level of respect, compassion, and care from me and my team. And that is our mission in each and every visit at Love Your Smile” as stated by Dr. Lau.

Dentistry, also known as Dental and Oral Medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity. Dentists diagnose and treat dental issues and help patients develop better oral hygiene regimens. They clean teeth, correct bite issues, perform surgeries and extractions, and perform other duties to ensure that the teeth and mouth are healthy.
