I was born and raised a Huskies, Mariners, and Seahawks fan across the water in Seattle. Growing up in the Northwest I grew fond of the great outdoors and enjoy camping, hiking, snowboarding, basketball, ping-pong, photography and raising my two dogs, Wookiee and Kongsoon. I received my doctorate from New York University College of Dentistry and my bachelor's degree in biology from UC Berkeley. My love for dentistry led me to participate in United Way's Community Resource Exchange dental mobile van for the homeless population, Smiling Faces Going Places (a dental van providing dentistry to underprivileged children), Oral cancer walk fundraisers raising awareness and doing screenings for oral cancer, and providing services to the community in various King County Public Health Dental Clinics around the region. Most recently I had the opportunity to treat the needs and desires of my patients in Palm Desert, CA doing significant smile makeovers and smile reconstructions. I also love gadgets and dental science is advancing all the time which allows me to employ the newest technology and techniques to provide the most up-to-date care for my patients. Currently, I am also advising on a University of Washington research team for a new dental technology. I am versed in all phases of dentistry including certifications in tissue laser dentistry (by the World Laser Institute), oral surgery, Invisalign and implants. I have also been awarded as a Fellow by the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. More importantly, I believe in giving ethical and honest treatment to all of my patients.
Verified Patient Reviews
Bellevue Wellness Dental is the best. The staff is friendly and professional. Dr. Chen is super friendly and honest. With my former dentist, I use to feel like every time I went to his office he and his staff were having a bad day, they were always so rude and rough. At Bellevue Wellness you are seen and treated with respect. Dr. Chen and his staff are super gentle and take pride in their work and are genuine and sweet. I actually like going to the dentist now. :)
I do not like going to the dentist, but when I walk into Bellevue Wellness Dental I never have a negative feeling. The staff is friendly and amazing, I couldn't recommend Dr Chen enough. Before I started seeing him I dreaded having my teeth taken care of. But as of today, after having Orthodontics done, some cosmetic work, and whiting, not to mention the cleanings and fillings.. this is the best experience I've ever had. And I am so happy with my smile.
Best dentist in the Northwest! AAAAA++++++
My long-term dentist hadn't kept up with the field. Dr. Chen did a through examination and determined that I could have implants! He seated the front ones this week, and I am exceedingly happy. You owe it to yourself to check out Dr. Chen!
Very appreciative of Dr. Chen seeing me on such short notice after I broke a tooth at lunch. Everyone in the office was very helpful and I'm looking forward to continuing to go there.
I love this dentist and his staff!!! He is a wonderful family dentist and does great work in orthodontia as well!
Very well treated vey satisfied will let friends know Nasir
Great staff and Doctor
I highly recommend Dr. Chen and his staff. The care and customer sevice I received in my first and second visits, both major work in bone graft and post/abutment was second to none.
Really patient doctor who cares for his patients and makes the whole dental experience an enjoyable one. I've had plenty of dentist in my life and this one by far is one of the best.
Dr. Chen and his staff are always friendly, and take the time to explain dental work, procedures and billing. Dr. Chen also follows up with his patients when they've had a more complicated procedure - like gum surgery, to make sure the patient is healing properly and not having unusual discomfort or pain. We were very happy with the results from the surgery. They have a wonderful practice, and I would highly recommend his office!
If you are looking for a great, professional and caring dentist with an amazing staff, go see Dr. Chen. I've had many appointments in this office for myself or my son and have had a great experience every time. My 5-year old LOVES going there. A great place to take your little one too!
Dr. Chen is the BEST! I had two cavities filled and his bedside manner was great-- I could barely feel it AND I got to watch a movie while it was being done. BONUS!
I've been a patient with many dentists in the past due to attrition, moving from east coast to west, etc. Of all the dentists I've had over the years, Dr. Stanford Chen ranks among the very best. When deciding to change from my current Seattle dentist to one on the Eastside, it was hard to give up a good dentist relationship and go with an "unknown younger dentist". At the time Dr. Chen had only been in practice for approximately 5 years. A good decision! Dr. Chen is professional, gentle, detail-oriented, and uses the most current equipment. He knows what he's doing and gives his all to his patients.
Always cheerful, friendly. Shots and procedure least painful
Dr Chen is fast, genuine, thorough, and very nice. I definitely would recommend him.
Very good bedside manner and overall a great experience!
Very satisfied and adequate explanation on procedure
He was very quick in and out after my cleaning. I felt like he was trying to upsell me by telling me all the things I needed to have done when I regularly brush and floss!
Dr. Chen is an exceptional dentist and a cool guy.
I've been coming here for years, and I've always had a great experience with Dr. Chen and his staff. Friendly, efficient, and professional, they are good at what they do and keep you relaxed and at ease while they clean your teeth.
This was my first visit to this doctor. He was professional, designed a plan for my dental treatment as well as try and help me identify some issues I was having. I was so impressed by the doctor and his prices and special offer that I not only paid for what I needed done I also bought a Sonicare toothbrush. Thank you Dr. Chen and wonderful staff!@^_^@
I wish I found him a long time ago. He truly cares about his patients and their comfort. He is a perfectionist with a great "bedside" manner!!
The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable! I have already been recommending them to family and coworkers
I had a big problem after the root canal treatment.
Chen and staff are wonderful. I'm a horrible scardy cat when it comes to the dentist. They are the best at making sure you are comfortable and with as little discomfort as possible. Abundance of patients!
i feel very comfortable during the process. and it was much faster and better than i expected.
Very diligent, performed the cleaning himself. Everything was state of the art.
Dr Chen is very nice and experienced,although i have very serious gag effect,i feel very comfortable and relaxed without any pain during the whole process for deep cleaning and cavity fillings. i am very satisfied with this visit.
I wouldn't usually say this, but I actually enjoyed my visit to the dentist! The receptionist was friendly, my dental hygienist was thorough and helpful, and Dr. Chen himself was intelligent and approachable. I highly recommend this dental clinic.
He is very caring and professional
Everyone was so nice! I was quickly seen by Dr. Chen and he explained the procedures nicely. The only bad thing....I have to have a tooth pulled next week, but a 6-9 months from then, I'll have a new and improved tooth!
Everyone I interacted with during my cleaning/check up was very friendly and made the experience as enjoyable as it could be. I would highly recommend Dr. Chen to anyone. In fact, I've already recommended him to two of my coworkers!
The staff are all friendly, helpful and good at what they do. It really feels like a second home.
Pleasant experience (^_^)
overall very professional in his work and very understanding. He sees the needs of his patients wanting them to get the best care with a happy smile.
Would absolutely recommend him and his entire office/staff.
Dr. Chen was very professional. Even though I am poor and on medicaid, he treated me with dignity. He referred me to a specialist who would make a payment plan to fix a fractured tooth. He is great, and so is the staff. The receptionist gave me good advice on how to obtain more dental insurance when i asked.
Dr. Chen and his staff always take great care of me!
Best dentist I've ever seen. Highly recommend. Great team to have working on your mouth. :)
It was all well, but not as well as the first visit at the office a year ago (last time Dr. Chen was a little more careful with the cleaning).
The entire staff have a professional 'can do' attitude. From the moment one walks in the front door, one is treated with appreciation and courtesy. Professionally Dr. Chen and his staff are at the top of their profession. Highly recommend!!!
The Doctor is personable and has light hands.
Dr. Chen and his staff were exceptionally professional, courteous, and on time as always. Dr. Chen's cosmetic artistry is exquisitely painstaking and yet completely pain free. I highly recommend Dr. Chen and his excellent staff!
Very personable office staff, hygienist, and dentist. Very thorough cleaning and a great explanation of each step. I will definitely be coming back.
All of the office staff was very friendly. The office was really nice and clean and I felt very comfortable. They even had free wi-fi and there is even a Kerig coffee machine and coffee in the waiting area. Not that you'd want to drink coffee before your dentist appt. but I thought it was nice there was the option. They were very thorough and thoughtful and explained everything up front and they addressed every issue with my teeth and my jaw that I had questions about before I even asked. Very pleased to have found a nice dentist.
He is great.
He really cares, and listens.
I thought Dr. Chen was great. Very friendly & informative. I was impressed with how much was completed for an appointment that was initially for emergency dental work. I think the dental hygienist/assistant forgot about me, at one point I was sitting in the chair with gauze in my mouth for a good 30-40 mins.
Overall, the quality of service was excellent with minimal discomfort. The staffs there were super friendly and helpful. I am very pleased with Dr. Chen's service and care. By the way, the receptionist was great as well. I confidently recommend Dr. Stanford Chen's practice.
I felt heard and valued by Dr Chen. He was gentle on my mouth while still effectively cleaning it. The front desk person and the dental assistant were helpful and kind. Dr Chen's practice is comprehensive, providing the latest technologies in dentistry, cosmetic concerns, and orthodontics. Well done!
Great office staff as well as Dr. Chen.
He is awesome!!
He's great with the patients, and still focused on the exam.
Dr. Chen and his staff are friendly, professional and honest. They tell you your case like it really is and don't try to talk you into extra services. You also get a goodie bag after you leave. :)
The doctor was nice but my appointment was at 6 and I didn't actually get my teeth cleaned until 6:55, good thing they have personal TVs with Hulu+
Great dentist; great office! The entire staff is wonderful!
My appointment was confirmed on ZocDoc but when I arrived, the office had my appmt for an hour later - miscommunication in the scheduling system they have. They did their best to get me in sooner but still an hour. They may want to call to confirm appmts so this does not happen again.
Quick analysis of my problem & clearly explained about the surgery process and answered all my queries on it.
Dr. Chen is a great dentist! Very gentle and extreamly friendly! I used to hate going to the dentist, but I actually like it now because of him.
It went really well! He is friendly and professional.
