  • As a dental specialist I seek to associate with other dental professionals that follow my philosophy of providing individualized care to every patient. I know that when working with Dr. Chen he will always provide the right care for patients regardless of the simplicity or complexity of their situation. Dr. Chen knows that patients are more than just teeth and uses his experience and expertise to better people’s lives as well as their smile. His attention to detail from treatment planning to carrying out that plan is superb. It is nice to be able to work with someone who’s goals and ideology match my own in truly CARING for patients.

    - Dr. Jeremy R. Jannuzzi (Maxillofacial surgeon)
  • "I went to see Dr. Chen after suffering from extreme complications related to my all on five upper/lower dentures. I was at my wits end after suffering from severe complications with my prosthesis continuously breaking and not being able to chew or eat many solid foods over the last 4.5 years. He was sensitive to my needs and delivered new permanent prosthesis. I can now eat, chew and I have a beautiful smile! I have reclaimed my life because of his impeccable attention to detail! He's my hero!"

What Is a Prosthodontist?

Dr. Chen is a prosthodontist, a specialist who went through three years of extra training after dental school. As a prosthodontist, Dr. Chen specializes in anything that needs to be replaced in the mouth. From routine treatment such as dental crowns and bridges, to full mouth rehabilitation involving dental implants.
