Patient reviews for Dr. Yen-Ching Chen
Dr. Yen-Ching Chen is professional, helpful, and personable. He doesn't talk too much, makes sure the patient understands what he's doing, and always makes sure the patient isn't in pain which is a huge plus in comparison to other doctors I've seen in the past.
Very talkative, but sweet and kind. Cleaning was painless. Conveniently located so will definitely return.
He was very nice, gentle, sweet, and effective. Definitely would recommend! The office was nice and updated as well!
I went in for a follow up deep cleaning appointment, and although I was little nervous when seeing the numbing needle, Dr.Yen-Ching Chen made sure I understood exactly what he was doing and routinely checked in to see how I was feeling to make sure I wasn't in pain. Dr.Chen is extremely knowledgeable and patient while describing the procedures he does and is very accommodating for that person's pain tolerance. Overall very pleased with both of my visits at Dr.Chen's office.
Excellent two visits! I spent quite a bit of time looking through all of the Dentists on ZocDoc and although he didn’t have as many reviews as the others, he fit my criteria in terms of years as a practicing dentist, schooling, and general online presence. I think he really cares about his work. He took his time explaining to me what needed to be done and how we should tackle all of it. I never felt pressured or uncomfortable with any of his recommendations because he made sure to continually ask my opinion/expectations throughout the entire experience. Very pain free experience. The extraction went smoothly and I highly recommend him! Will continue to go to him for my dental needs.
Doctor Chen is really great and pays attention to small details. He also gives me good advice on what works best for my teeth and insurance plan.
A dentist that actually cares about your teeth
Very nice, prompt, and super quick cleaning. Easy recommend!
He makes sure patient understands whats wrong with him and how he is going to treat him. Very detail oriented.
Dr. Chen is knowledgeable and helpful.
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 with clear 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.
Very professional and gentle. Highly recommended.
Usually I hate going to the dentist but this was a totally painless and comfortable experience. For sure recommend!
Dr. Chen was very thorough during the visit and took the time to explain any irregularities he noticed. Very professional, would definitely refer!
Exceptional service, expertise and professionalism, Cannot recommend him highly enough.
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.
Really good dentist - professional, knowledgable and friendly. I can warmly recommend him
Dr. Chen is a thorough professional. He explains things really well and is very friendly. Great experience!
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 previously hated 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.
Knowledgeable, courteous, thorough, and has the extra experience with Periodontics.
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 in for 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.
Great visit, will be a repeat patient!
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 brush my 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!
Dr. Yen-Ching Chen is really great. This is my 3rd visit with him and every time it has been very positive. He really prioritizes communication and educating the patient on what is going on with their body. This is essential for the patient to be able to take their assessments and suggestions to heart! He gives you the context you need. He's also very friendly and accommodating. All-around great.
Very good. I do have some trouble understanding his explanations because English is not his first language.
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 amazing. He is very good to those with sensitive teeth, as long as you let him know before hand. I've had many cavities worked on by Dr. Chen and I have a lot of confidence in his work. I feel very comfortable in his hands and I would recommend him for anybody.
Very competent and nice person, taking his time to explain everything
Was very insightful and made me relaxed. He went the extra mile for me even though he didn't have to. Great staff as well. Really liked the office.
Great overall experience. Very nice guy and excellent periodontist. Lovely clean office, wonderful admin. Stress free. Had me look carefully at my teeth and clearly explained issues. I'll certainly be back.
Had a chipped tooth that he fixed. Looks like new!
He is very nice. I liked that he taught me about things that I should be working on. He is very knowledgeable and I enjoyed my visit very much.
He is a good dentist
Dr. Chen is so nice, patiently and carefully explained everything and gave me really useful suggestions on my treatment.
Great! Best dentist visit I've ever had. Dr. Chen is a very nice man and I'm looking forward to my next visit rather than dreading a dental exam as I have done in the past!
doctor is very friendly and caring by giving good advices for my current dental condition
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 attention to 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 been to 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 and to 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 also open on Saturdays and some holidays, which is super convenient. Overall, would recommend him.
