I’m so thankful for Dr. Chen. Especially since my last dentist did a lousy job of a root canal, despite after see an awful review for Dr. Chen out of over 100 positive reviews. I still made an appointment and I’mso glad I did. She was so informative, warm, and made me very comfortable each step of the way for a perfect crown. She’s so detailed oriented that every edge of my crown must be perfect for my liking. She took her time and I truly appreciated every bit of it. Thank you Dr. Chen. Truly outstanding and professional. You can tell it’s not just a job, it’s her passion.

Dr. Chen is wonderful. Take it from someone who avoided the dentist for years. She made the entire process calm and casual, while maintaining professionalism and approachability. I appreciate how she also explains steps as she is doing themduring a procedure, so you aren't left wondering what is happening. Her communication is great, her staff is also very supportive.

Dr Chen was thoughtful and considerate in every possible way during my initial cleaning. She spent extra time to make sure my teeth were left in good shape. Her team created and shared a breakdown of the work I'd need toget done in future visits while also clearly indicating what my insurance would cover. Everyone was more than happy to answer my many questions. Can't wait to continue on my teeth journey!

For a first time patient with Dr. Chen, I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. Normally, when you show up for an appointment, you are asked to wait. Often, much longer than your scheduled time. My wait was less than5 minutes and that included reviewing my paperwork. I felt everyone was cordial and professional and Dr. Chen was clear and straightforward when explaining the procedure and expectations.

I love Dr. Chen and her team. I’ve now been going to Midtown Dental Arts for about 5 years and have seen Dr. Chen for 3 yrs or so. Dr. Chen is extremely patient, gentle, and has great bed-side manner. Sheis very thorough in her explanations, makes recommendations but is not pushy, and really cares about her patients in and outside of the office (she always remembers my name and random conversations we have during my visits). I used to dread going to the dentist but now not so much. My visits are always pleasant and my dental heath has never been better! I trust and recommend Dr. Chen wholeheartedly. Thank you Dr. Chen and all the staff for making it a seamless experience every time.

I love Dr. Christie. Been coming here for years after she took over the practice from the former Dr Chen. She is so kind and always takes time to explain what she’s doing and any questions that you have. Here youare never rushed and are a person, a patient, that’s truly cared about and looked after. Always recommend to friends and anyone needing a not just a good, but a great dentist. I do not live or even work in the area, and continue to come here for all these reasons.

Let’s start with time. I got here 10 mins to my time, and was seen 20 mins after. By the time my paper work was done I spent 1.5hrs for my first visit. Let’s preface this by saying I need comprehensivework done, because I skipped plenty of years due to a bad experience. Being at the precipice of losing a tooth, I've opted to hunt down a kind dentist. I've combed Yelp, vitals, google, Zocdoc, Aetna etc... finally found Dr.Chen via Zocdoc and took a chance. She's calm, and explains what she's done or why/what she's doing, and works to keep you as comfortable as possible. What I really loved is that she broke down the major work that needs to get done in blocks, by price out of pocket from insurance AND in the order of importance. I have insurance so I can't imagine out of pocket cost! This isn't including cosmetic portion which means implants, and major bone scanning so keep that in mind if you have a tooth that you have to say bye bye. Here's something to know, and shouldn't be a big deal... it's an open concept office which means you can leave or come in while someone else is getting work and peek in. The chair is positioned with your back away from the door, and the X-ray screen is up against the wall. So when a doctor is trying to show you a photo of a teeth or xrays you don't have to move much while in the chair. What killed me when I walked in was the DRILLING I could hear fairly easily, but after walking back and noting the open door policy I was a bit at ease. Lol. Get your teeth checked!

Possibly the best dentist experience of my life! Everyone was very polite, and the visit didn't take too long. To boot, Dr. Chen made a point to explain what she was doing and why she was doing it. It was superhelpful to know what every tool was doing and make the cleaning go quicker!

Dr. Chen is fantastic! She is gentle, explains everything so that you understand what is going on with your body (mouth) and is patient when you're nervous. She is friendly and kind, and all around great! She filled a cavity inmy wisdom tooth, while most dentists would simply insist on pulling the tooth because it's a wisdom tooth.

Let me start by saying how cute Dr. Chen’s puppy is. If you ask nicely they’re all about showing Penelope’s photos to their patients. Aside from that, professionally and knowledgeably, Dr. Chen really knows what she’s doing. I don’t like dentistoffices or even having to go see the dentist, but I’ve had dentists I’ve been going to for many years before, and honestly Dr. Chen is the only one who made me feel comfortable and always answers all my questions confidently. She doesn’t rush me, and she pays attention to my concerns. She goes above and beyond for her patients from my experience. She even pointed out some issues my prior dentist left on me that she fixed up. I had wished I went to her first more than anything. Highly recommend this office. It is a very quiet, friendly, and down to earth atmosphere. Plus if you’re a Mandarin or Taiwanese speaker, she is your go-to dentist. The best of Midtown hands down. Unfortunately, 5 stars is the highest I can rate.

My second appointment here & I’m such a fan! She does an incredible job of explaining details and making you feel comfortable about each part of the process. Most importantly, she is transparent about pricing and what *actually* needs to getdone vs what can be monitored. I’ve had terrible experiences in the past where dentists overstate the severity of a problem just to get more money - not at all the case here!
