What Patients Have To Say
"Dr. Li is the best dentist Ive ever had, and Ive been going to him since 1986. I trust him for the gentle, quality care he provides. Best of all, I never experience pain, no matter what procedure is required."
Margaret Wong, 84 yrs. Old - San Mateo, CA
"I have been Dr. Lis patient for many years. I cant imagine any other dentist with a gentler touch or who is more sensitive to a patients concerns. Dr. Li thoroughly explains treatment options, works with you if you have budget constraints, and always accommodates emergency situations. His staff, Julie and Betty, are very professional, welcoming and knowledgeable. I have referred two friends to Dr. Li in the past few months, one of whom has a phobia about seeing dentists. She is now a regular patient of Dr. Li, and so is my other friend."
Meicha San Francisco, CA
"Dr. Li has been my dentist since the 1980s. He has a gentle touch when it comes to dentistry. There were times when I didn't even feel the 'shot', and I still can't figure out how he does that. My entire family sees Dr. Li for their dental work. I would say that we're lucky to be in good hands when it comes to seeing a dentist!"

Dr. Norberto Li
Dr. Li has been practicing dentistry for the last 31 years and is very experienced in every aspect of dentistry. He graduated from the UCSF School of Dentistry in 1979, worked as the staff dentist at San Francisco General Hospital Dental Clinic from 1979-1982, and has maintained a general dentistry practice at 450 Sutter Street, San Francisco, since 1982.

Married for over 26 years, Dr. Li and his wife Shelley have a son and a daughter. In his spare time, Dr. Li is an avid cyclist and also enjoys photography, fishing, skiing, reading and singing.
Our office manager, Betty, returned to the work force in 2007 after raising her three children. Bettys considerable skill set includes fluency in Cantonese and Mandarin. Her many duties range from administrative paperwork (insurance and accounting) to coordinating patient appointments and generally keeping the office running smoothly. While these responsibilities make her an invaluable team member, she shines most impressively with her ability to make patients feel welcome and appreciated. Betty likes to work out at a gym in her spare time. Her other interests include collecting recipes and watching the food channel for cooking inspiration.
Julie is our chairside assistant. She is highly skilled and experienced, having joined our office in 1988. Like her team members, Julie has expertise in languages other than English, including Vietnamese, Cantonese and Mandarin. Julie displays great efficiency and dedication in her work and, after 22 years, she can practically read the doctors mind. Outside of the office, Julie exercises regularly throughout the week. Her favorite pastimes include swimming, tai chi and yoga.
