About

After graduation, Patricia took on a general practice residency program at the University of British Columbia in 2006. When she finished the program, Dr. Liu stayed in Vancouver for two more years to learn all the ins and outs of working in a private practise, but also to enjoy the wide mountain ranges and ocean of British Columbia. She moved back to Toronto in 2008 to join the Cityview Dental Team where she has worked since. In her spare time she enjoys tennis, skiing, cooking, interior design and dogs.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I have worked for 11 years as a general practitioner, and have experience in a range of treatments. Our dental office is affiliated with other offices in the downtown core. Within these offices, we have access to specialists that provide our patients with comprehensive and optimal dental care.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

I perform many treatments for my patients, however my top three are basic restorations (fillings), extractions and Invisalign (clear braces). I've been practicing these techniques for 10 years and have been a Preferred Provider with Invisalign for the last 3 years.

What are you proud of in your practice?

I am very proud of my team! We work extremely well together and are each experts in various areas within the practice. This expertise provides patients with a positive and seamless experience when they visit our office.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy every aspect of general dentistry! I am very passionate about treating each patient specific to their needs and strive to ensure that patients are educated on their oral health. My favorite procedure, however, would be anterior restorations - you can see an instant improvement and it's amazing to see someone's confidence improve when they feel good about their smile.

    Dr Liu was very nice and professional! She explained everything in detail and patiently answered all my questions. She also offered different options and solutions for my teeth problems and didnt pressure me for anything I wasnt comfortable. I really enjoyed my experience.

    Great experience! Dr. Liu was very thorough and knowledgeable and answered all my questions. The massaging chair during dental cleaning is a great add on and was a first experience for me. City view will be my go to dental clinic in the city place area.

    Dr. Liu and everyone in her office are incredibly friendly! I like how Dr. Liu really took the time to explain everything to me thoroughly. I had a previous bad experience with my last dentist which affected my bite and was causing me pain, so Dr. Liu was able to fix this for me. Would highly recommend her!

    Everyone who I interacted with was very friendly and welcoming and Dr. Liu was very efficient, thorough and very knowledgeable. I was greeted by her assistant Christine who really put me at ease and told me what to expect and made the xray process very quick and smooth. Then Dr Liu came in to look at the xrays and examine my teeth and she very quickly pointed out what was going well and what wasn't and explained her thought process in an easy to understand way. I felt like she was really recommending treatment that was appropriate for my needs (not just some generic stuff to get me to come back). I am indeed going back and recommending her to my friends.

    I used to spend a whole morning or afternoon for just a cleaning appointment - because my dentist is in Mississauga. Now I just walk across the street for my dental appointments! Love the location, but more importantly, the folks at CityView are super friendly and professional. I’d recommend CityView to everyone, especially if you live in the CityPlace neighbourhood.

    I had a cleaning with one hygienist, extras taken by another and then Dr. lu came in for a consult. It was the most detailed consult I’ve ever had from a dentist and she really explained what we’re nevessary procedures vs nice to haves - which is rare as I feel dentists often try to gouge you! The office also let me put my credit card on file until I could call in with my insurance details which I thought was very nice.

    Reviewed on March 27th, 2018  •  Verified patient
    I booked a morning appointment for a new patient exam and cleaning. Dr. Liu was welcoming and easy to talk to. She walked me through the entire exam after the initial X-rays and measurements. I liked that I could see everything she was referring to on the TV screen in front of the seat (flips back to the news during the appointment). Dr. Liu also discussed non-urgent options if I ever wanted to proceed with them (ie. teeth straightening or wisdom teeth removal) so at least I knew what to expect. I appreciated the attention to detail and also the great service from Christine and Karen. If you’re nervous at the dentist, they’ll put you at ease.

    When I arrived I was greeted by a warm reception, coffee and tea. The insurance process was quick and painless. In past, I’ve been used to X-rays being a cumbersome process but they were done in the chair my entire exam would be in. Finally, when the doctor came in, she walked me through detailed reports of my teeth (for a half hour!), showing me how to truly keep them healthy.

    Fantastic treatment and very knowledgeable staff. Thoroughly enjoyed working with Dr. Liu and having her exam my teeth. Took the time to share what work was completed that day and what my dental health looked like. Excited to go back to the dentist! There was a double booking on my appointment and I was unable to see a hygienist. They were quick to book for another time and were helpful otherwise.
