Doctor David Lai
David Lai, DDS was born in Hong Kong but raised on the east coast in Fairfax, Virginia. He attended the University of Virginia with a dual major in sculpting and biology. During Dr. Lai's last two years at the University of Virginia, his sculpting teacher and mentor William Bennett asked: "why not pursue dentistry?" It was indeed the perfect combination of the art and science; while granting him the opportunity to serve his community. Dr. Lai enrolled at Virginia Commonwealth University's School of Dentistry in 2008. Following his training at Virginia Commonwealth University, he chose to expand his dental skills and knowledge in Rochester, New York at the Eastman Institute for Oral Health. During his residency, he learned to excel in thorough and accurate diagnoses, perform surgical arts including removal of wisdom teeth, along with placement and restoration of implants.
What defines Dr. Lai's work and ethos on dentistry is a quote from a professor at his white coat ceremony, Dr. Lutz stated, "Good dentistry comes from the hands, but great dentistry comes from the heart." Dr. Lai believes that the pinnacle of excellent dentistry is to listen and do what's best for the patient. Dr. Lai loves living in Northern California due to the abundance of activities available. During his free time, you can find Dr. Lai enjoying city events, board games, bike rides and trying new foods. Ask Dr. Lai for recommendations on games, trails and restaurants!
