Meet Dr. Liu

Kenneth Liu, DMD, MS

Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology


I remember that when I was a young boy, a woman walked up to my family at a restaurant to talk to us. She was a patient of my father, who is a prosthodontist. She was beaming, with a beautiful smile, and she said, "I used to hate smiling because of my teeth, but your dad fixed them. Thanks to him, now I can't stop smiling!" That particular memory resonated with me. It was amazing to me to realize that dentistry blends both medicine and artistry, a combination so powerful that it can impact a person's confidence and sense of self. As I grew older, I realized that I also wanted to pursue dentistry, and I quickly developed a passion for periodontics.
