I highly recommend Blessed Smiles and the entire team there! I have a lot of anxiety around going to the dentist that has completely disappeared because of the caring and experienced staff. I have had extensive work done and they are reasonably priced and communicated clearly throughout the whole process.

Her office carries family-like environment, making me very comfortable and welcome. Dr. Chyn treats me with all the respect and care. But most of I visit her because I have confidence in her competence as a dentist. She put a crownon one of my teeth, which some told me that they could not put the crown but I had to do an implant. But she assured me that she could put the crown and it works wonderfully. This case made me sure of her competence and honesty. Simply put, she is the best to me.

I have been to Dr. Kim for several root canals and crowns, cleaning, fillings, etc. and wouldn't go to anyone else. She and her entire staff are entirely patient-centered, caring, and highly competent. I don't have any anxiety about having treatment and procedures at this dental office.

It has been the most pleasant dentist office visit. Ms. Missy's smile and warmness made me feel welcomed. Her detailed explanation about X-ray was thorough and informative. Dr. Kim's explanation was clear and professional. Her confidentmanner and knowledge was quite assuring and made me feel that I can trust and work with her. I feel very fortunate to come to Dr. Kim's office today. I am looking forward to receiving necessary treatments from her and her team.

Dr Chyn Kim is an absolutely delightful person and a highly skilled dentist. Get past the tiny office, in an old building in various stages of repair. (At least there is easy parking.) Dr. Chyn Kim is an excellent dentist, usingstate of the art technology along with an easy, friendly manner and a great support team.

I am horrified by dentists. Mainly, I always felt like I was lectured for this, that or the other, even though I have relatively few cavities... Dr. Chyn was AMAZING. Very polite and thorough; took time to explain treatment and whatshe recommended. I needed a couple small fillings, and Dr. Chyn made sure I was comfortable the whole time and finished quickly. The fillings feel great it is hard to believe I had dental work done today! The technician I had the week before for a cleaning was great as well; she wasn't overly aggressive so there was little to no discomfort (especially when it came to her flossing my teeth, which is pretty amazing). The front desk staff is pretty amazing as well. They are always happy and we're able to explain charges and even were willing to call the HR of my company's insurance to discuss what coverage I have. Blessed Smiles also has an in-house insurance plan of $300/year which gives you discounts of services, so if you don't have dental insurance this makes it easier to pay. It also provides for the subsequent cleaning and x-rays. Overall, I am glad I found this dentist. The one thing is the office is a little small and the building is out-dated, but the equipment is clean, the workspaces are clean as well, so really it's just a small aesthetic hiccup but that doesn't detract from the stellar service. I will be coming back to Blessed Smiles again. One of the best dentists I've seen.

Aileen once again showed her care with her professionalism. She is kind, detailed, customer-oriented, and very reasonable and friendly. I felt that she took care of me with her best knowledge (her techniques, expertise's & experiences) andher heart (her care & kindness). Honestly, I don't like to visit any dental office, but Blessed Smiles makes me feel very comfortable because all the staffs are very friendly. They are very knowledgeable both technically and operationally. They work with you and plan according to your insurance and your financial situation. All are out-front and no surprises! They are doing business with a friendly manner. Keep it up, Blessed Smiles :) ..............

Dr. Chyn Kim and her staff are absolutely the best. I have had a lot of work done on my teeth in the last few months at Blessed Smiles. I have to be honest, I postponed seeing any dentist for toolong out of my deep fear of dentist in general. Dr. Chyn Kim and her staff are gentle in the mouth, they are informative regarding the procedures, and they are incredibly calming and reassuring during the procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Chyn Kim and her staff.

came here for a cleaning and check-up. The hygienist, Missy, is wonderful; she's gentle but thorough, skilled, and quick. She's friendly, knowledgeable about what she does, and attentive to questions and requests. I spoke with Dr. Chyn aftermy cleaning. From our conversation, I could tell she is incredibly knowledgeable but more importantly, she has very high standards for herself, her staff, and her work. She put me at ease with her honesty and professionalism. She was happy to explain the reasoning behind each of her recommendations, she really listened to my concerns, and worked with me to find the right fit for me. I got the sense that she genuinely cared about each of her patients. I'm definitely recommending Blessed Smiles to friends and family. A couple of other things also worth noting - 1. Dr. Chyn has one of the most well-stocked and comfortable waiting rooms I've ever been in! I didn't have to wait at all for my appointment but from the few minutes I spent in the office, I noted the free Wifi, TV (with Netflix), Amazon Echo, kid's toys, Keurig, and all kinds of assorted snacks and drinks! I'm actually looking forward to waiting before my next visit to her office! 2. The front desk staff are friendly, polite, and efficient! I had to call a couple of times before my appointment because I was running late and then because my GPS died before I found the office. But her front desk was very helpful and happy to help.

Best experience at the dentist I've ever had. Staff are polite and welcoming. The office is cozy, warm, and very clean. I was seen almost right away. First had my teeth cleaned. It was thorough and there was no discomfort. Thedental assistant was friendly and knowledgeable. I was then seen by Dr Aileen Chyn. She's a wonderful dentist. She explained what dental work I needed and answered all my questions. She is highly intelligent and personable. They had a cancellation so I asked if I could stay to have the additional work done and they allowed me. I have the feeling she put extra care into getting all the work done perfectly. I couldn't be more pleased with my experience!

This is my second time to see Dr. Kim. I find her to be kind, unrushed, and professional. I feel like I am being heard and taken care of well, but I do not feel like she is trying to sellme anything or do unnecessary work. I will continue to use her and recommend her.

Blessed Smiles provided me with the best dental experience I have ever experienced. I had routine checkups, cleaning, and 3 implants. Dr. Chyn is a true professional; she truly cares about each patient's health. She is so kind with all patients,when you are in the office as much as I have been its hard to not observe her with other patients. It is clear that her goal is her patients' health and not financial gain. I am also impressed with Dr. Chyn's staff; everyone is very considerate and makes every effort to work with you on treatment, scheduling, and payments. I wish more doctors were as professional and caring as Dr. Chyn.

Dr. Chyn was incredibly professional, down-to-earth, and kind. I loved that she addressed my reason for scheduling an appointment without pushing other services. Her office is small and simple, with a very non-chain/corporate feel. Sheis the first dentist I have used since moving to the area, and I plan to continue using her.
