About Us

What Sets Compass Dental Arts Apart?

At Compass Dental Arts, guiding our patients to establish and maintain optimal dental health is our passion. Dr. David Ka Lai, Dr. Monica Wu, and the rest of our team provide personalized, friendly, and comfortable care and create an atmosphere where patients feel secure, heard, and respected.

Why Choose Our Team?

We understand that a variety of factors affect the way our patients feel about their dental services, which is why we work hard to ensure our people, atmosphere, and technologies are exceptional.

Our people: Rather than dictating specific treatments, Dr. Lai and Dr. Wu review options with the patient, transparently discuss the pros and cons of each, and empower the individual to make informed decisions about care. Additionally, each member of our customer service and clinical staff is highly trained, responsive, and attentive. Everyone has been chosen because of their skills, as well as their passion for providing a warm and safe dental experience that exceeds patients’ expectations. Our doctors and team embrace continual learning to stay current on the latest high-tech, conservative dental technologies, and methodologies. Just as strongly, we emphasize patient education, tailored to the individual’s clinical and personal needs. We offer useful, practical advice and guidance to support patients as they make positive nutritional, lifestyle, and home dental hygiene changes.

  • Our atmosphere: We have designed our San Jose dental offices to be welcoming, relaxing spaces, where patients are assured they are in caring hands. From inviting reception areas to well-cushioned and supportive treatment chairs, we want patients to feel at ease. We understand that some anxious patients feel more relaxed in the presence of a furry friend, which is why we welcome patients to bring their companion along for appointments. We also have in-house emotional support dogs and happily make them available at a patient’s request.
  • Our technologies: Our doctors and staff are all trained on the newest technologies to ensure the highest quality dental care possible. We utilize digital x-rays, digital patient chart systems and communication—including two-way texting, as well as laser dentistry, video conferencing for teledentistry, and intraoral camera monitoring to streamline treatment and produce effective results.
  • Eco-Friendly: We care about being green which is why we implement the following practices - digital radiography, computerized charts, email & text reminders, electronic insurance filing, in-office recycling, paper goodie bags, water conservation toilets and energy-efficient lighting.
