Verified Patient Reviews
It was the most informative dentist visit I have ever had. Learned a lot about how the mouth works!
She's super kind and careful. Thanks!
The staff members are all very skillful and professional. Of course, Dr Chen is just a wonderful doctor!
Dr Chen is very knowledgeable and treats me well. She helped me install the crown that fell off (previously done by another dentist), and it works really well. She went the extra mile to explain the problem the way I brush my teeth. She also pointed out that I grinds my teeth. I have never heard these suggestions from my previous dentist.
Great experience overall, answered every question I could think with detailed explanations, staff was great before and after visit, couldn't have been any easier.
Dr. Chen is awesome! She's really patient with my daughter. I'm very glad that we switched our daughter to her care.
My visit was very informative; Dr. Chen loves talking about all things dentistry, and is happy to answer questions.
Very friendly and professional. Even provided sunglasses to deal with overhead light.
I really liked meeting Dr. Chen. She was very honest and not pushy about treatments that were unneeded. The visit was very smooth and timely and I was in and out within an hour even with x-rays and everything.
Great dentist -- highly recommended. Super nice and easy to work with.
Dr. Chen was conservative with the treatment plan and gave excellent tips on preventative care.
We love Dr. Chen!
She put me at ease. the office was run very professionally. i especially liked that they set up the appointments for the specialists for me. left to my own devices, I would have put it off for as long as possible.
Dr Chen is unbelievably thorough in her work, from exams to procedures. What I personally find really helpful, is that she is explaining what she is doing and why-- I want to know, and she shares. She is fantastic, been following her from practice to practice, and still seeing her, even though I moved much further away from her practice. I trust her judgement, her work, and guidance!
I had a deep cleaning of my teeth here. Doctor Chen is really professional. She and her staff are very nice.
Love Dr. Chen and her staff. Lovely people who are great at what they do!
She's super sweet and a foodie. Very competent and very attentive to my issues and my problem during my visit. Found her through a coworker recommendation and would recommend Dr. H Ting Heng to everyone else.
Dr Chen is amazing. She's very gentle, caring, and professional. She knows how to calm a patient and meet their needs. I like that she always take the time to explain her recommendations or treatments.
She was very accommodating. During my teeth cleaning, she gave me a lot of info on dental care, what caused cavities and such. She was gentle, professional and funny. She was willing to spend as much time with me as needed.
Dr. Chen is awesome, as are her staff!
It was my first dental consultation after a long time. Highly satisfied. Very knowledgable,patient and gentle.
Dr. Chen is the best dentist I have ever had! She is pleasant, caring, and professional. She takes time to make sure that you are comfortable situated before she begins the exam. And she thoroughly explains her diagnosis and all the procedures as she performs them. And finally, she takes time to inform you about things you can do to take better care of your oral hygiene. Dr. Chen is a very competent dentist with excellent bedside manner. Her office is equipped with high-tech imagery systems and is clean and well-organized. Her staff is also efficiently, attentive, and very competent. I highly recommend Dr. Chen.
very thorough first visit. took longer than expected but I prefer that over being rushed out with incomplete checkup
Most positive dental experience I've ever had, hands down.
She is very friendly and explained everything very clearly! Office is clean and new.
It was fantastic. I was nervous since I haven't been to a dentist in 5+ years, but was assured everything will be ok.
Very nice experience! Everything is perfect!
Very patient, nice, detailed doctor. Highly recommend.
Very talented and caring dentist. Spends time to tell you whats going on and your options. Won't do un-needed work just to male a dollar. Very trust worthy and great work!
I have not written a review in what seems like an eternity. My visit to Dr. Chen and her trusty counterpart, Sandra had inspired me to do so, just 30 minutes after the end of my appointment. If you're pulling your hair out, stressing about finding a trustworthy, professional, courteous and extremely knowledgeable dentist that you can count on for years to come, look no further! Did I mention Dr. Chen and Sandra are super friendly? I don't go to the dentist often, but when I do, it will now be to this office. In a nutshell: 1. X-rays: Now done with a "softer" digital sensor, and not those archaic razor-sharp films. 2. Cleaning: Extremely thorough; my teeth look and feel great. 3. The View: For a dentist office, the view is simply amazing, with windows to the outside world. The office is clean and extremely welcoming. I felt at ease as soon as I entered. 4. The Hand-off: I received dental care package that will come in handy while traveling. Why on earth are you still reading this review? Call them! Cheers!
Best dentist ever, and I've seen a lot of dentists. She's always completely on time, and super friendly, and (if you go on the right day) does all of the cleaning herself too.
