Probably my favorite dentist. Not the kind of guy to recommend you a bunch of different unnecessary procedures and will give it to you straight.

The visit I had with Dr. Chen was excellent. He gets to the point of what I need to get done. He also provides detail information, recommendations about my teeth (history, current, and future), before and after the dental work. Thisgives me an idea of what to expect on the short and long term of my teeth and assured me that the work I need will be successful.

The most personable, kind, knowledgeable dentist I've ever known with an incredibly kind and helpful team at his office. He took the time and explained everything. His staff helped me figure out whether my insurance would cover this cleaning.I would recommend him to anyone. **Sidenote I asked if I could get a copy of my X-rays so I can put it at my night stand to remind myself to floss, bc those pockets are getting pretty big!! They were ready before i walked out.

Dr. Chen was a breath of fresh air - I approached my first appointment with lingering questions because my previous dentist wasn't very attentive, and he answered them before I even asked. He was also very thorough.

Let me start by saying Dr. Chen was wonderful!!! But.... Waited for a long time. Office and equipment were not as clean as I would like them to be for a dentist office. The Xray machine that you use standing uphad a serious LAYER of DUST! I was truly horrified, as the dust was right next to where you are placing your open mouth, not to mention each patient that uses the machine is staring directly at the dust -- very gross and totally unsanitary. The dental assistant who was doing the xrays in the chair was very rough moving the little piece around my mouth, which is already uncomfortable and I believe the dental assistant should try to be extra careful when navigating a sharp piece of plastic around your mouth. She also hit into the chair I was sitting in several time, causing it to shake while the uncomfortable plastic was in my mouth -- again, just BE CAREFUL, as this was VERY PAINFUL! She didn't even apologize, she just said "I know it's uncomfortable"..... Besides all of that, Dr. Chen was lovely, educated, informative, and very helpful. I will definitely see him again, but will be mindful of everything else.

I hadn't been to the dentist in 6 years and decided it was time to finally go back for my 6-monthly check up. I was a little nervous going to the dentist, but Tony was brilliant. He was very friendly andput my nerves at ease. The process seemed very thorough, and everything was explained to me so I knew what was going on. I would definitely recommend!

Dr Chen and all the folks at the office are the best. You're not sitting around waiting hours. He's thorough and gentle. He explains what he's doing. I live in the Bronx; I pay a $17.00 toll to see him 2xa year. He's great. Susan the hygienist is also the best.

Dr. Chen as always was great! I've been going to him for over 10 years. I don't really have many problems with my teeth however last week I was feeling some discomfort. I called the office and set up an appointmentfor today. My only complaint was that I waited a while to be seen. When I asked how much longer it would be until I saw Dr. Chen I was told a few more minutes and the reason I waited that long was because they squeezed my appointment in. I wasn't told that when I initially made the appointment. Minor miscommunication.

The office management was very quick and organized, and Dr. Chen was so friendly and able to address all my questions in addition to providing his own recommendations. Highly efficient all around. One thing: it was a new experience for methat mostly all of the doors were open during cleanings and whatnot. Even my X-rays were not 100% private. I believe they'll close the door for your room if requested, I did not ask as I wasn't uncomfortable with it, but if you are really sensitive to privacy you may want to take this into consideration.

- Arrive 5 minutes early and had an appointment scheduled for right when they opened. Still ended up waiting 50 minutes before being seen, which was super frustrating. + Dr. Chen was really nice and very interested in hearing any questionsI had and addressing them. - With that said, Dr. Chen also did my cleaning and he definitely missed spots. I have tartar built up between my teeth and when I came home and looked there were some areas that hadn't been cleaned as well. Overall, I was disappointed and don't think I'll return here.
