Testimonials from Doctors and Patients
  • I have been an oral & maxillofacial surgeon in the Denver/Southeast Metro area since 1998. I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. John Chen on many mutual patients over the last several years; providing oral surgery services from tooth removal to placement of dental implants.Dr. Chen is personable and well liked by his patients. His advanced prosthodontic training and skills are reflected by good patient preparation throughout the implant therapy and the ultimate visible completion of his restorative phase results in very happy and satisfied patients. His skill and expertise is evident.It is a pleasure working with Dr. Chen and his patients.

  • I have enjoyed working with Dr. Chen on dental rehabilitations for several years. Aside from being a compassionate and warm-hearted individual, he also takes pride in the dental care that he provides. Dr. Chen focuses on details that create natural and esthetic teeth and smiles that are ART and not just dentistry.

  • 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!"

Services & Procedures

We are happy to provide the latest in dental technology to make your visit to the dentist as comfortable as possible. And as much value as we place on high-tech dentistry, we know how important the basics are as well. Regular check-ups and cleanings are still a top priority when it comes to keeping our patients’ mouths healthy.

At Uptown Comprehensive Dentistry and Prosthodontics, our goal is to provide patients with excellent dental care in an environment that is warm and welcoming. We offer these services to ensure the good oral health of all our patients.

In addition to the fantastic training Dr. Chen received during dental school, he went on to receive another three years to become a prosthodontics specialist. As a prosthodontist, he has the expertise to replace severely damaged or missing teeth with natural-looking and functional restorations.

General and Preventive Services

When it comes to dentistry, nothing is better for your oral health than routine dental care. We recommend that you and your family come in twice each year for dental examinations and routine cleanings. Regular check-ups will also ensure that your gums stay healthy and free of disease.

We also recommend full x-rays at least once each year, using our state-of-the art digital radiography. Digital x-rays are not only quicker, but they use less radiation than traditional x-rays.

We also have an intraoral camera and panoramic x-rays to give us access to the nooks and crannies where even an x-ray cannot see.

Cosmetic Dentistry

If you are not happy with your smile, you are certainly not alone. But with cosmetic dentistry, there are a number of ways for you to get the smile you have always wanted.

Procedures such as porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and bonding mean you do not have to hide your smile from the world.

Restorative Dentistry

If you have missing teeth or teeth that are damaged, you are probably self-conscious about them. But there is more to missing or damaged teeth than just esthetics! Your overall health can be impacted, particularly if you have trouble chewing properly and cannot eat the healthy foods you enjoy.

If you have teeth that are cracked or chipped, we can discuss options such as dental crowns and dental bonding to fix your teeth from an esthetic standpoint and prevent further damage. We offer E4D same-day dental crowns so you can receive your permanent restoration in just one visit!

If you have missing teeth, we encourage you to consider dentures, dental bridges, or dental implants since these can provide you with an effective solution to give you back the form and function of your smile.
