I've never been to a doctor of any sorts who seems to care as much about his patients as Dr. Yen-Ching Chen. He spent so much time with me, explaining everything that was going on with my gums, providing me withclear expectations of what I needed to do moving forward to take care of myself and ensuring that I had all of my questions answered. It really seems like Dr. Yen-Ching Chen truly cares about his patients above all else and is committed to making sure everyone leaves his office with total clarity. Couldn't recommend more.

Dr. Chen is wonderful. He's kind, gentle and professional. His recommendations are honest and fair. Since, I started getting regular cleanings with him two years ago my teeth and gums are in noticeably better shape. His office is spotless, pleasant and convinently located. I recommend him highly.

I really like Dr. Chen and his assistant. He is a top notch doctor and I am amazed that I get to go to him and he does the cleanings himself. He is gentle and did a great job. I previouslyhated the dentist but he puts me right at ease. I have been for several appointments and leave feeling calm and taken care of. I noticed an improvement in my gum health right away after getting a deep cleaning, which he recommended. Also his knowledge of insurance is good and fair. I have great benefits and he made smart suggestions about how to use them wisely but was clear about what he thought I needed to do and why and what might be a beneficial extra.

Dr. Chen is great. This is my fourth visit. Before I started seeing him I was afraid of the dentist and had not been in 6 years. He is very gentle and kind and now I look forward to going infor regular cleanings. After two appointments, including a deep cleaning, my gums were noticeably more healthy and less red and inflamed. He is always honest and helps me understand my insurance and use my benifits wisely.

Dr. Yen-Ching Chen is impressive. This is my 1st visit. He has an expertise in gum and teeth implant, and patiently explained to his patients on what is going on with their teeth. He also taught me on how to brushmy teeth very well which I never experienced such dedication. He is doing his job because he loves his job and speaks to the heart because I feel really well taken care of. He's also very communicative, generous, friendly and accommodating. I will definitely will return to him. Absolutely I have confidence and recommend him!

I had a great appointment here, Dr. Chen is great at dentist-ing, clearly very knowledgable about gums - which was particularly useful for me - and all-around very friendly. I'll most definitely be returning to his office to keep my teeth in ship-shape.

Dr. Chen is the first dentist I've ever been to who actually does his own cleanings. It's a small office and you can tell he cares a lot about his practice. He is a periodontal specialist so he paid special attentionto my gum health in addition to doing a regular cleaning/exam/x-rays. The woman who works at the front is also very friendly and helpful. I'm going to make Dr. Chen my regular dentist.

Dr. Chen had a knowledgeable clam to him. I felt very welcomed at his office by the wonderful front staff person. He was friendly and made me feel like he enjoyed being with me at my dental appointment. I have beento many offices where staff were rude and the dentist treated me like just a job to be done and not a person. He spent more time with me making sure I understood what was wrong, the risks, and how much insurance would cover than I would of ever expected. It was great when he would illustrate on paper what one of my back molars looked like and warned me of future risk to that tooth. I walked out having full comprehension of my dental questions and awareness of my future risks on specific teeth. He also didn't pressure or rush me into a procedure and left it completely up to me how to go forth with my treatment. He is simply wonderful and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend. I wish I found him sooner.

Their office was really nice and conveniently located. Also he takes patients on holiday and weekends which is always a plus! Also, the receptionist Lily called to me let me know that the patient before was taking a little longer andto come in 15 minutes later so that I wouldn't have to wait, which was really considerate of her! She and Dr. Chen were really awesome about answer my questions as well. Definitely recommend him!

Really nice guy. Explained things thoroughly. I had a bit of trouble understanding him at times, due to his accent, but not a big deal for me...might be for others. Would give 4.5 stars if I could. His office is alsoopen on Saturdays and some holidays, which is super convenient. Overall, would recommend him.
