A seasoned dentist with over 44 years of experience in the field, Dr. Santiago-Liu works with patients at her private practice – The Family Dentistry – in Toronto, Ontario in Canada.

The Family Dentistry has a dedicated team of professionals who have served their patients since the early 1980s. ​They have enjoyed the smiles they bring to all who walk through their doors. Using the latest proven techniques and highest quality equipment, they ensure that their patients’ experience is pleasant and free from discomfort. ​They offer a full range of services to help improve or maintain dental health.

With a broad educational background, Dr. Santiago-Liu received her Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry degree from the University of the Philippines. Upon graduation, she practiced for three years in Manila, in a private practice. She migrated to Canada to join her family and worked at the radiology department of the Toronto General Hospital and as a dental technician at the Kapsi Dental Laboratories in Toronto, before establishing The Family Dentistry. 

An expert in her field, the doctor passed the National Dental Examining Board of Canada in September, 1977. She also successfully completed the United States of America’s National Board Examination in March, 1977.

Continuously advancing her efforts, she is an active member of the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario, the Ontario Dental Association, the Canadian Dental Association, the Phi Sigma Biological Honor Society, and the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society.
