Dr. Chang and her team were extremely patient, kind, and courteous. They took time to explain the details of my procedure and the pros/cons of my options. The facility was very clean and modern. They called me later in the eveningto check on me, as well as sent a text the next day to also check in. Would highly recommend!

Dr. Nina was very thorough, she spent a lot of time examining things that many other dentists miss or often bypass in favor of getting to the next patient. She was able the catch the issues that my other dentists missedin the past and suggested preventative methods to improve the health of my teeth in the long run. You really feel like she cares about your genuine well being instead of just being someone to make money off of.

Well, it is super pricy. I changed to other dentist now and my bill cut 3/4. The front desk charges you a lot not sure why. I was a patient for Dr. Chang for about 2 years, and finally I switchedbecause none of my friends have higher treatment bill than me.

Dr. Chang is my new favorite. The office has a lot of fancy equipment and they even offer to play Netflix if you show up early and have to wait. NETFLIX!!!! She is very thorough and she exposed a lot ofoversight my former dentist missed, which shocked me. Dr. Chang takes before and after photos to makes sure you understand what was done and how it is beneficial. She cares and I like that.

Dr Chang is really good and professional. I don't know if the front desk billed me the right amount since it is higher than what I got from Metlife's bill of statement. I will just shot an email and figure it out.

I was completely impressed with the whole staff. When I arrived I didn't have the correct dental cards and the receptionist went out of her way, to find out what kind of insurance I had and what level of coverage. DoctorChang and her assistants were every patient with me...With me having a extreme fear of a dentist. I left the office thinking I made myself believe it was going to be worst then what it really was.

I had a very good experience here. Dr. Chang was very thorough with my examination and showed me pictures of the problem areas of my teeth, which I found helpful. She filled my cavities without causing much pain :) Additionally, thestaff did a great job explaining what my bill might be, how much my insurance would cover, and how much I should expect to pay out of pocket - something most dentists/doctors don't do and that I really appreciate about Dental Serenity.

Possibly the best dental cleaning experience I've ever had in my life. Ms. Chang and her entire staff was extremely considerate and funny. Everyone explained everything so well, I felt so confident in making informed decisions about my dentalcare, which is rare because sometimes one can get caught up in the medical jargon.

I was very impressed with Dr. Nina Chang and her staff. Her examination of my teeth was incredibly thorough and painless. She examined and took pictures of every tooth, with x-rays to boot. Her diagnoses were detailed, specific and backed byevidence and we were able to map out a treatment plan. Her office provided full visibility into how much my insurance would cover, in advance of scheduling my treatments, which I appreciated. Dr. Chang's office is very tech savvy and filing of new patient forms were seamless, quick and electronic. Patients can fill them out via email days before the actual appointment. When I arrived there was no wait time. I was extremely pleased with the friendliness and knowledge of her staff. Her bedside manner is great and both she and her assistant explained each process carefully and inquired about my well-being through out. I will certainly be back and recommend Dr Chang to others!

Honestly the only time I have been remotely well informed from a dental checkup. I'm used to references to the numbers of the teeth, sorry us lay-people don't stay up memorizing that, and being harassed to floss. I was told Ireally need to floss, but I was shown some awesome (read: gross) before and after pics of my own teeth which inspired me to floss too! She also explained a few things with my bite with photos, not x-rays, and the future possible problems and solutions. Highly, highly recommended. Also, her exam chair is a normal dentist shaped-massage chair--that's what I'm talking about while taking a long lunch break during work!

It was a pleasurable experience I must admit. As pleasurable as the dentist can be. I went in for a cleaning and the dental hygienist Susan was a sweet young lady and very thorough in explaining what she was doing andwhy. Very friendly staff, and I would recommend Dr. Chang to anyone. Dr. Chang came and spent time with me in the beginning, and at the end to talk with me about my teeth. She was very informative and pleasant. They were very hands on in showing me my teach on a TV screen and answering any questions.
