The best way to gauge if a dental practice will fit all your needs is by paying attention to reviews and testimonials. Learning what patients have to say about us is a great way to see how we're doing in real time.
Please take a moment to read through some comments left by our wonderful patients, then give us a call to learn more about our practice!
Dr. Au is the sweetest and most patient dentist!! I'm in the dental field so I'm very particular about my teeth and went on recommendation! I wanted a Prosthodontist (someone who goes to school for an extra few years to learn about implants and crowns) and am so grateful I found this office. Marilyn in the front knows me by name and is always the person I talk to on the phone- love the consistency!!! They are very accommodating and also love the parking lot because otherwise it can be a hassle to find a spot in this area. The first times I came they were out of network with my insurance (Marilyn helped me figure out submitting), with my new insurance they're in network. Been here for about two years so far :)
** shelia and Karen are also super sweet and nice to chat with even when getting a deep clean!

Over the decades I have been treated by a number of dentists, endodontists and periodontists both here and abroad. Some good others not so. A couple of years ago I needed several implants. Because of the high cost, I explored the international options in Hungary and Thailand and Costa Rica. Local dental implant practices seemed expensive and overbooked until I stumbled upon Dr. Amy Au of Berkeley Prosthodontics through google.
With angst and trepidation I went to see her and discovered the absolute best dentist right here in my own backyard in Berkeley. I have had 3 successful implants so far and have found Dr. Amy to be extremely competent, professional and devoted to her patients. She has made room in her schedule to see me immediately when I broke one tooth and another time when I needed an urgent extraction. And she has taken the time to do things right. She has a wonderful bedside manner and a positive outlook which has created a welcoming office atmosphere and responsive staff. She has even phoned me after a few of the more complicated procedures to make sure all is OK.
She practices conservative medicine: using pre-surgery antibiotics to prevent infection; and allowing ample time between extraction/bone graft and implant placement and crown to allow for full healing and bone strength. Many implant practitioners advertise single day treatments. Think slow cooking vs. fast food. Her exacting prosthetic skills have led me to comment that she is a miracle worker.
Her office even has free and easy parking access. On top of all that, her charges are reasonable and she is meticulous in describing costs and options beforehand. I almost never give reviews, only for the very good and the very bad. This one is very good.
In short, I am so pleased to have found Dr. Amy and will continue to use her practice for all of my dental needs, not just implants. So if you are as nervous about implants as I was, give her a try. You will be glad you did.
Clean office in a historic building. When I arrived, I was greeted with a smile by Marilyn at the front desk. The assistant brought me back and made sure I was comfortable during the X-ray process. During my exam, Dr. Au was informative and educated me on my dental health and needs. Overall, an excellent experience and I will be going back for my check up and cleanings in the future.

I just wanted to share my experience with Dr. Amy Au. As a healthcare professional myself, I am very particular who I see and trust. She extracted two molars and placed in two implants. Everything looks and most importantly feels great. I Would highly recommend Dr. Au to my family and friends. She is extremely knowledgeable, competent, gentle and meticulous.

Dr. Amy Au was very patient and thorough. Even though I have anxiety about dental work, the procedure went really well and I had zero pain after the filling! The cleaning with Suzanne was also a very positive experience.

I recently had some dental procedures by Dr. Au. Specifically, an implant and 2 crown replacements. I have suffered from dentist fears my entire life, probably from a bad childhood dentist. From start to finish Dr. Au was professional and caring. I never had any discomfort and am here to reassure you she is a great dentist! And the results were beyond my expectations. Thank you, Dr. Amy Au!

I have had lifelong complicated dental issues. I am very picky about finding a trusted and competent dentist. Dr. Au is everything I want in a dentist. Competent, patient, caring, great diagnostically, and a perfectionist. She makes sure that the result is what she and I want. I trust her and am very pleased with her work and with the entire team.
