Lillian Yu, DDS

Dr. Lilly was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences at the University of California, Davis. She went on to attend the University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco where she received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. Following dental school, Dr. Lilly served as an active-duty general dentist and Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy for several years. She traveled throughout the country—starting her military training in Newport, Rhode Island, and then was stationed in both North Chicago and Whidbey Island. She provided dental care to recruits, sailors, and veteran families. While in the Navy, she also had the unique opportunity to work in a pediatric-centered office and mobile dental clinic in Seattle, where she ultimately discovered her passion for pediatric dentistry! 

Dr. Lilly is excited to return to northern California to provide the highest quality care to the children in her community and treat them as if they were her own family. The Navy has taught her that teamwork and building a sense of camaraderie can have a tremendous impact early on. She strongly believes in creating a positive environment and utilizing a team approach to dental health by educating her patients on oral conditions and integrating early prevention techniques.  

Outside of the practice, Dr. Lilly enjoys running, hiking, and exploring the outdoors with her husband, Thomas. They recently added a new member to their family: a mini Australian Shepherd named Coco!
