Our Reviews

See Why Cerritos Is Smiling

I highly recommend this office! The staff is very welcoming and nice! The RDH Bailey was very informative and often checked if I was doing okay during the cleaning. Dr. Wu was very patient, taking his time to explain different treatment options with me and also helped adjust my mouth guard! Will definitely return again.

Roy C.

I have been going to Cerritos Plaza Dentistry for over a decade and that's because of the amazing team from the dentists to the wonderful ladies at the front desk. My favorite hygienist Angie is the reason why I look forward to my 2x a year appointments. She makes the dental visit a pleasant experience and instantly makes everyone feels like family, while helping you keep your teeth clean and healthy. Highly recommend!!

Christina C.

Amazing staff and services! They offer discounted dental plans. I feel very confident and reassured and ready to move forward with my dental health.

Chris K.

My family has been coming to this dental office for as long as I can remember and I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. Dr. Kress and Angie are the best--gentle, thorough, and always warm and friendly.

Hannah B.

I've been going to this dental office since 1995.... Dr. Wu has taken over the practice and he is great!!  Out of dental school for 6-7 years and is up on all the new techniques.... He's very personable and fun to talk with.  The office staff has always been outstanding and will accommodate whatever problem you may have.... It's an enjoyable dental office and they play great music.... A shout out to Angie, my dental hygienist!!

Bev S.

When you find a dental care team that is professional, knowledgeable and caring guard them with your life... and then you're forced to move away. We are so bummed but taking the time to post this review. Dr. Wu and his team at Cerritos Plaza Dentistry are just the best. Every visit we felt well cared for and everyone there is just so nice (Thanks Karen for the latest assist!). We highly recommend Cerritos Plaza Dentistry and will continue to do so.

Joe S.

Great office personal and the best, caring dentist you can ever get. Due to insurance I stopped going to him but I'm glad I can go back to see him. My daughter and grandson  also see doctor. As always this is the best dentist office. It's always a nice experience.

Ilva B.

Great dentistry, been coming here for over 15 years. I've moved away but still make time to come back for cleanings.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Make an Appointment?

Scheduling an appointment at Cerritos Plaza Dentistry is a straightforward process. Simply call our practice at (562) 924-8663 during our working hours or send us a message and our friendly staff will assist you in finding an appointment time. We understand that our patients lead busy lives, and we strive to offer flexible appointment times to accommodate your schedule. We look forward to helping you maintain your oral health in a comfortable and caring environment.

How Often Should I Visit the Dentist?

Visiting the dentist regularly is key to keeping your smile healthy and bright. While everyone's dental needs are different, a good rule of thumb is to see your dentist for a check-up and cleaning every six months. These regular visits are really important for keeping your teeth and gums in top shape and catching any problems early on when they're easier to treat.

Here at Cerritos Plaza Dentistry, Dr. Jared Wu and our team understand that each person's mouth is unique. That's why we take the time to get to know you and your dental history. We'll make sure to recommend a schedule for visits that's just right for you, based on your specific oral health needs. Whether it's sticking to the standard six-month visits or coming in a bit more often, we're here to make sure your preventive dental care is tailored just for you. Remember, taking care of your teeth is a big part of taking care of your overall health, and we're here to help every step of the way.

How Can I Fix My Smile?

A beautiful smile can significantly boost your confidence and is an essential aspect of your overall health. We are dedicated to helping you achieve the smile you've always wanted. Our approach to enhancing your smile is tailored to meet your individual needs and goals.

Here are some options we offer:

Teeth Whitening: Brighten your smile with our professional teeth whitening services. This procedure is ideal for removing stains and discoloration, giving you a noticeably whiter smile.

Veneers: Veneers are thin, custom-made shells designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. They are an excellent option for correcting chipped, stained, or misaligned teeth.

Dental Implants: If you're missing one or more teeth, dental implants can be a permanent solution. They provide a strong foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.

Invisalign: For those with misaligned teeth or bite issues, Invisalign in Cerritos can gradually shift your teeth into the desired position.

Are Dental X-Rays Safe?

Dental X-rays are a common and safe procedure used to diagnose and monitor various oral health conditions. They allow dentists to see detailed images of your teeth, gums, and jawbone, helping to detect issues that may not be visible during a regular dental examination.

Dr. Jared Wu and our team of dental professionals understand the concerns that come with any medical procedure. That's why we only recommend dental X-rays when they are absolutely necessary for diagnosing, treating, or monitoring your oral health conditions. Before conducting an X-ray, our team will review your dental and medical history, evaluate your current oral health, and discuss the potential benefits and risks involved in the procedure. This thorough approach helps in making informed decisions tailored to your specific dental health needs.
