In his unique practice, Dr. Liu does not limit his practice to only "functional" pediatric dentistry but also includes "cosmetic" pediatric dentistry. His office provides state-of-the-art techniques, materials, and equipment, such as digital x-rays, laser treatments, a completely paperless system, and a child-friendly environment. Furthermore, Dr. Liu's staff is a specially trained team working together to meet all of your child's dental needs.

In addition to his devotion to his patients, Dr. Liu finds time to pursue his love of music which includes playing the violin. He also enjoys playing golf. Dr. Liu is especially enthusiastic about airplanes, evidenced by his new office design with a playful yet professional airplane motif that children are sure to love. Dr. Liu warmly welcomes you to come and experience his commitment to caring for your children in his office.

Dr. Brian Liu's Associations


Dr. Liu has invested in technological advancements in his practice, one of which is digital radiography.

By using digital X-ray equipment, patients are exposed to far less radiation than traditional X-rays. Also, they provide immediate views of the jaw & teeth and are recordable on computers so the information can be easily shared with other specialists.
