– Belinda, Springfield, VA

Kelsi and Belinda have been coming to see Dr. Lu since she was a baby. “We brought her for her first appointment and it was just a natural fit,” says Belinda.

During their last appointment, Kelsi had a chip in one of her teeth that needed to be fixed. “There was no pain and Kelsi didn’t have any anxiety about it at all. It’s great to be able to have her taken care of without any stress!”

Since Dr. Lu has been a part of their daughter’s life, Belinda shares that Kelsi has loved coming to the dentist and taking care of her teeth. “Dr. Lu is excellent with the kids and her staff is wonderful. We really appreciate the experience we’ve been having here!”
