Verified Patient Reviews
Wonderful staff who really puts your comfort first. Dr. Chang was amazing in explaining things and taking the time to properly examine me. I am happy to have found this gem of a dentist!
Came in for a Cleaning and Filling. Super professional and super thorough. Very high tech compared to other places i've been.
Excellent as always. Staff are friendly and welcoming. I mean I’m willing to pay out of network for this dentist!
This was definitely the best dentist visit I have ever experienced. I hadn’t been to the dentist in years and needed a thorough check up and cleaning, and everybody in the office was so friendly. Dr. Chang was kind and explained everything so that I could easily understand what my issues are and what my options are. And the office itself is really beautiful. I will definitely be back.
An Outstanding practice! the doctor and staff was so amazing! No wait time at all, i had a cleaning and an exam done. Let me tell you, this the best cleaning i have ever had!The doctor Chang answered all my questions and came up with a plan right away. Overall, great practice, will recommend everyone!
Came in for an overdue cleaning. No wait on a Friday afternoon. Dr Kim was very thorough and explained what she was doing and the next steps for treatment very clearly.
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 missed in 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.
Absolutely the best dentist I have ever had, amazing staff, kind, friendly, thorough, and pain free.
My first ever cavity filling! I was a little nervous but it all went great, it was painless, quick and efficient. Plus the staff is very kind and professional. A+
She was very professional. Almost no wait time at all. Explained everything and made sure I understood. Offered options and everyone was very nice
Best dentist among I have visited. Knowledgeable, considerate, and professional! Arranged a very detailed plan for me. I live from her office now but I will definitely come back again!
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 of oversight 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.
The best tooth doctor ever. Very professional, patient, nice. The environment is very clean and quite, they even have a PC for playing music or movie for you while doing the examination/cleaning. The equipments and tools she used are very advanced. After examination, she explained to me in very detail for each bad tooth, and then gave me suggestions and asked for my decision. very nice experience!
Love her professional attitude.
I got shell shocked when she told me the prices of a root canal. My previous dentist was is one quarter of the price. I think I'm going back to my old dentist
The entire staff is amazing, informative and they care so much about your comfort. Best regular cleaning I've ever had. Choose upbeat tunes on the Pandora (yes you can choose your own music) to brighten up your hygienists' day.
Good but quite expensive
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. Doctor Chang 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.
Very professional and took the time to explain any problems or issues in detail. Always made sure I was comfortable. The technology used there was great and convenient. The receptionist was very pleasant as well as the dental assistant. Although this is only after 1 visit, I think I may have found my new dentist!
Very thorough, nurses and doctor were nice.
Very tentative and personable. Great follow up after treatments.
Very professional, nice and caring. Definitely coming back
she seems to push patient to take more filling
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 dental care, 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 by evidence 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!
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 switched because none of my friends have higher treatment bill than me.
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, the staff 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.
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 I really 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!
Everyone at this office was amazingly friendly! Dr. Chang herself had great bedside manner and took the time to explain my findings and show me photos that they took of my teeth. Looking forward to seeing her again :)
Dr. Nina, Susan and Jenny were very professional. They explained me everything and clarified all my concerns. I highly recommend Dr. Chang!
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 and why. 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.
Doctor and staffs are very nice. They explained me very clearly about my concerns. Also they have Japanese translater. That worked me.
Dr Nina blows any other dental experience out of the water! Technical, professional, educational, comfort, personal, and luxury. She is hands down the best! I would recommend her with no reservation!
Dr. Nina is the best dentist in every aspect.
great, I loved it, more fun than a barrel of monkeys
Awesome doctor and very friendly staff/office. There was a patient with an emergency, so I had to wait 30 min. or so, but was given a Starbucks gift card for my troubles. Legit.
Really sweet. Helped me figure out my options with my insurance and which treatments i should do next year so i'd have to pay less.
Always a nice experience. I highly recommend dr Chang.
Had a great experience here and would recommend to anyone looking for a new dentist.
Nice open office, pandora/netflix are a nice addition to each room. No waiting time and very friendly staff. Dr. Chang spends a good amount of time with each patient and is very thorough with her examination. Further treatments are recommended where required but not pushed. Good experience all round
Amazing, everyone is very professional. Dr. Nina is very gentle and thorough.
Dr. Chang is really nice, sweet and professional. She was vary careful when she did cleaning for me. Dr. Chang is very patient. I really trust her suggestions. Her staff in the office, are really friendly too. I would highly recommend this dental office.
Dr. Chang and her crew are fantastic. This was my third visit and every time, everyone is friendly, courteous, and very professional. Takes the anxiety away from dentist appointments!
I'm such a baby about going to the dentist, but she's really good at putting her patients at ease (and she's very gentle--I barely felt a thing). Recommending her to all my friends.
Love Dr Chang, very friendly and professional.
Very professional and expert.
Visit went well , The office was very professional .. Dental Assistant too great care of me and my teeth and so did Dr Nina .. they offered me the option of watching Netflix while waiting to get a cleaning. Upfront about prices .. I had 0 wait time .. very convenient location on Madison..def will be seeing them again
This was my first time visiting Doctor Chang, and I will definitely be back. I was very nervous about my dentist appointment (I've been putting it off for years because I was afraid of the pain and everything else that usually goes along with dentist appointments), but it turns out I was silly to have done so. Dr. Chang is extremely gentle and nice and informative and really cares about her patients. When the appointment was done, she took me through high resolution photos of my teeth, on a tooth-by-tooth basis. I've never had a dentist explain my teeth to me... which is unfortunate, because understanding your teeth is kind of important in taking good care of them. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Chang.
Very friendly and put me at ease! I'm pleased and actually look forward to going back (as much as a person can when it comes to dental appointments)!
It was just perfect and I am happy I found her. Her receptionist was friendly and helpful (+understood my insurance perfectly), her assistant was patient and very considerate (made sure I felt most comfortable during the x-rays), and Dr. Chang was simply fantastic. She gave me the most complete explanation of my dental health ever, made sure I understood what works need to be done and provided me with useful and practical recommendations on how to brush, floss, etc. I have never felt so well informed and so sure about a dentist before.
Really fantastic! Everyone was really friendly, polite, and patient. Dr. Chang explained everything clearly and was genuinely helpful. Sometimes dentist visits can be scary or make you anxious but she tells you everything she's about to do so you know what's coming and it really helps make everything pleasant.
Just had a dental cleaning and Dr. Chang and her staff were fantastic! They were very professional, patient, and always made sure I was comfortable during the cleaning. I was also able to submit my medical information online beforehand and didn't have to wait at all when I came in for my appointment on a Saturday. One of my best dentist experiences!
Dr. Chang and her staff are not only professional but treat you with the utmost respect and kindness. The exam was comprehensive yet gentle and they were extremely informative. Wonderful experience and I highly recommend!
Nina Chang runs a very professional office! The classical music playing is very relaxing and her medical team are so kind and polite! Although the gum numbing medication used during cleaning was a surprise to me (my tongue became numbed too, and i'm not quite fond of that) the high tech cameras they use to show you before and after cleaning are fantastic! I saw a MAJOR difference and now my teeth are pearly white! They were even able to identify a microscopic cavity and had it taken care of in a flash. I'd highly recommend Nina Chang to anyone looking for a professional, timely and kind dental service. Thank you!
I truly feel so lucky to have found Dr. Chang! I have dental phobia and I always avoid seeing a dentist, until I found Dr. Chang. Dr. Chang is very patient, considerate and friendly. Her staff is also very attentive and knowledgeable. I am coming back for for gum treatment and braces! Thank you doctor!
Just came back from my appointment with Dr. Chang and I had a wonderful experience. Her staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. I haven't been to the dentist in over 5 years and my teeth/gums were in sub-par shape. Dr. Chang was friendly, patient, and did a terrific job with the cleaning (didn't feel a thing!) and the examination. I also really liked that she had music playing as it eased my tension. Very highly recommend.
Very professional. I will return for my next check up
I came in after booking an apt at 2am the night before because I thought something was seriously wrong with my implant. Thankfully it was only the cover but she took care of it and was very careful, she was constantly checking to make sure I was okay. Already set up a follow-up apt! Thank you!!!
I haven't seen a dentist since I was a kid out of bad experiences back then, and being allergic to pain. But I had to see one now because of some unbearable tooth pain. Dr. Chang has such a very pleasant manner about her, and she was always attentive to my concerns. She explained what she was going to do before doing it, whether it was the cleaning or the root canal procedure itself. I was pleasantly surprise at how painless it was. As long as I can go to her, I don't think I'll fear going to the dentist again.
So nice, caring, helpful, and meticulous. The staff was just attentive , and she was meticulous in her cleaning. The perfect dentist
