Dr Chen is so great! I came to him in September 2019 to inquire about doing an Invisalign treatment. He was extremely thorough in explaining the process and I felt comfortable going through the process with him. Its been 7 months and my teeth look and feel incredible – I’ve even included before and after pictures. I plan on doing a cleaning as soon as I can!

I normally never leave reviews unless I feel very strongly about something, but Jackson Ave Dental is probably the best dental office in the area. Dr. Chen is an awesome dentist, he is extremely detailed and caught a cavity that my previous dentist had overlooked. During my appointment, Dr. Chen took the time to thoroughly explain everything he planned to do for the visit, and patiently addressed all my questions. I’m glad to have found a local dentist that I actually like, and will definitely be coming here in the future for all my dental needs.

Strongly recommend, particularly if you have concerns regarding the pandemic. It’s a new practice, so everything is pristine. They were only seeing one person at a time on the day I was there, so there’s fewer concerns regarding interaction with others. And they seem to be diligent about their Covid protocols.

This place is great! I came here last week for a long overdue cleaning and had an awesome experience. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Office was very clean and modern. Cleaning didn’t hurt, she was gentle and took her time. They were even able to put my crown back on which fell off a few months prior. Most places would try to get you to buy a new one but she took the time to adjust mine and reattach it. Saved me a ton of $& bc those suckers aren’t cheap! Def give this place a shot if you’re looking for a new dentist! So glad I found them!

I always have 10/10 experience whenever i visit this dental clinic ❤️ So clean and very pleasant atmosphere . I dont really like dental appointment but this clinic , specifically all the staff and all the dentist are so professional and they make my experience so pleasant and pain free! ❤️ I’ve been with them for 2 years now and i really recommend this Dental clinic who are scary cat like me! ☺️❤️

I highly recommend Jackson Ave Dental. The space is very clean, there is no wait time, the hours fit the schedule and the dentists who work here are great. I like to take good care of my teeth so having a great dentist is important to me. My dentist is Linh Nguyen and she performs routine check-ups and cleaning thoroughly with care. It’s too bad my teeth are in good shape and I don’t need to come often because she is super friendly and nice to talk! Book your next appointment here.

Shaima C. from Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


Doctor Chen is a great dentist, caring , gentle and very informative. I came here after having a really bad experience, and doctor Chen literally reassured me that my teeth were perfectly fine. I’m not a big fan on dental X-rays, but he was so careful with where he placed the sensor, so he was able to get the X-rays quickly and efficiently without me gagging. The cleaning went smoothly as well, he really does have a gentle touch and you can tell with the way he handles your teeth and the tools. Honestly, great dentist, he really does care about his patients and wants the best for them.

I went to Dr Chen for a second opinion on a tooth infection. Another dental office had recommended that i remove one of my teeth. He was able to go over the options available and recommended me to an endodontist. Dr chen was very knowledgable and was able to answer any question that i had. The staff is friendly and his office is very modern and up to date. Highly recommended and this will definitely be my primary dental office going forward.

Highly recommend Dr. Chen – had a consultation today and knew within the first few minutes Jackson Ave would be my dentist office. The office is clean, smells great and there was no waiting time! During my consult, he explained his recommendations and answered all my questions. Above all, he was truthful and made me feel informed. If you are in the market for a new dental office, check them out!

G. J. from Long Island City, NY (Source: Yelp)


Very happy to have these guys in our neighborhood. The office is very welcoming, clean, and new/high-tech. Everyone was very friendly, helpful, and efficient. They did great work – skilled and attentive – and had me in and out in no time. Unlike some other places I’ve been they weren’t trying to upsell me on anything and seemed like they were just looking out for my health and happiness, which was very much appreciated.

Matt S. from Long Island City, NY (Source: Yelp)


State-of-the-art equipment with an amazing staff! I had Dr. Lee and she was great. Very personable, knowledgeable and most importantly made my dreaded dentist visit fly by with no pain or agony. My wife Dr. Chen was great (as many reviews confirm as well) and it is even better to know the other dentists in there are equally amazing. This is useful to know when all these positive reviews make it harder for us to book an appointment 🙂

I had several procedures done, by Dr. Chen and Dr. Lee. I’m very happy with my results, and very happy with my experiences. Each step was explained to me, along with any questions I had were answered thoroughly. Their bedside manners really stood out to me, and have helped ease my anxiety surrounding the dreaded feeling of going to the dentist. This office has the most kind, compassionate, and professional doctors, that I’ve ever had the pleasure to being a patient of. Finding them was such a blessing!

Jenna M. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I don’t think I’ve ever felt compelled to write a review about a dentist before, but this place is great! It’s very clean and Dr. Chen is lovely. He’s friendly but doesn’t try to make small talk when  he has his hands in your mouth (why do so many dentists do that??), he’s thorough but gentle, so he doesn’t stab at your gums (I left the dentist without being in pain! Hallelujah), and he’s nonjudgmental (Unlike every other BRUSH YOUR TEETH 5 TIMES A DAY OR YOU WILL DIE dentist I’ve been to before). Thanks Dr. Chen!

Jessica M. from Long Island City, Queens, NY (Source: Yelp)


I recently moved to LIC and was looking for a reliable dentist in the area. After reading some horror stories from other local dentists, I found Dr Chen. The minute I walked in I could tell they take very good care of the office. It was already sparkling white, yet they were still actively cleaning up! 🙂 Dr Chen was very kind, smart, and listened to my concerns. This was the most gentle dental experience I have ever had! Normally, X-rays are a nightmare and I dread the pain of a cleaning. No pain here! You get to really enjoy sitting in the apricot chair instead of holding on for dear life. Dr Chen went above and beyond for my first visit and I’ve already scheduled another. I would highly recommend this office and Dr Chen to anyone!

Elisandra O. from Oviedo, FL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Chen was very pleasant and I was the only patient being seen. It felt good not having to wait 1-2hrs to be seen by the dentist like in my previous dentist office. He explained everything he was doing. Very thorough I will definitely be returning to see Dr.Chen. The office was very modern and very clean.

Yoshijiro A. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Chen was very kind and skilled. I very much appreciated the cleanliness of the office as well as the modern equipment. Everything about the visit felt like an upgrade from previous visits to a dentist. Dr. Chen was timely and generous with his time. My wife and I (and our son coming soon) will be regulars.

Dan P. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Finished my third appointment here and have had nothing but great experiences. Dr. Chen is excellent at what he does. I had novocaine for all three procedures and barely even felt a thing during the injections, it was kind of surreal! Super handy LIC location with easy scheduling, text reminders, and friendly staff– everything you could ask for in a modern dental office.

All the dentists/staff at Jackson Ave Dental are honestly AMAZING. In addition to being so great at their jobs, they are also incredibly kind, understanding, and patient. They genuinely care about patients and making sure you’re comfortable which, unfortunately, is rare. The office is always clean, they send text reminders, and they are flexible with scheduling. Finding them during this pandemic has been such a blessing!

Ashley G. from Long Island City, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr Chen is the BEST dentist I’ve ever had. His cleanings are top notch. He also removed one of my (not impacted) wisdom teeth a couple weeks back. I was in and out of the office in just 25 mins and had NO pain when the anesthesia wore off – which I thought was impossible from all the horror stories I got from friends. He’s truly a miracle worker, I can’t recommend this office enough!

The absolute best dental care that I’ve ever had!! Wonderful staff, clean and cheerful office space. Loved the calming music. I have a lot of anxiety about dental procedures and everyone who helped me went above and beyond to make sure I was doing okay throughout my cleaning and filling. Couldn’t recommend more!

Vanessa W. from Orlando, FL (Source: Yelp)


Great and efficient dental office! I’ve been going to this office since it first showed up in LIC (~2? years ago) and am excited to see it growing. Originally had 2 dental chairs and it looks like they have another one up and running. Both dentists, Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Chen, are really nice and attentive to my needs. I was able to get in and out of the office on time. The assistants are great as well! Love Michelle and Sabine!!!! They were patient with me during X-ray since I have a gag reflex. Front desk was nice too, they respond quickly (you can text them!) when I said I’d be running a few minutes late. Overall, had a great experience and totally recommend if you’re looking for a dentist in LIC!

First visit to the dentist in a while… I found Dr. Chen after searching dentists accepting new patients with fairly immediate availability, and I chose his practice because his statement mentions being a Queens native and serving the community, and that he received his DDS in NYC at Columbia. Dr. Chen wasn’t fazed by my time away from the dental chair, and was professional, cool, and gentle in his dialogue, examination, and cleaning. I’m happy to have found him, and look forward to the next visit!

Since the pandemic, I had been looking for a local dentist and I’m really glad I found 1311 Jackson Ave Dental. The office is extremely clean and inviting and everyone who works there is so friendly and welcoming. Dr. Chen walked me through my year of Invisalign and I recently saw Dr. Nguyen for a cleaning and filling. They are both top-notch. This location is perfect and convenient!

On Saturday, while taking my wife out for her birthday, I suffered an extremely annoying break in a tooth near the rear of my mouth at dinner. Monday morning Jackson Ave dental saw me and with great care and expedience provided me with a filling in less than 30 minutes and politely sent me on my way. I highly recommend Jackson Ave Dental. They’re great. -Don Guillory MFA.

John S. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


All in all, I had an excellent experience with Dr. Chen at Jackson Ave Dental. Dr. Chen guided me through my first (and hopefully last!) root canal and crown fitting procedure. Dr. Chen and his staff are professional, kind, and readily answered any questions and concerns I had throughout the whole process. Also, the office is immaculately clean, which definitely helped put my mind at ease; especially during a pandemic! Visiting the dentist for dental work is never something I have looked forward to, but Dr Chen and his staff made the entire process as pleasant as possible. I highly recommend Dr Chen and Jackson Ave Dental for anyone living in the Astoria/ LIC area.

Jessie H. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I dislike going to the dentist but decided to check this out as I haven’t had my teeth cleaned in awhile. The office is really clean and brightly lit!!! Dr. Chen took his time in explaining each step and making sure I didn’t have any questions. He does a really thorough job cleaning your teeth!! My teeth felt really clean and new. He showed me the pics he took of my teeth and explained what I was looking at. I felt like I could ask questions freely. You could tell he was really knowledgable- and friendly. I def recommend coming to this dentist office!! It’s near court square or vernon blvd – off the 7. I didn’t have to wait at all – most dentist offices have a long waiting time but I was seen on time!

My partner was in the search for a dentist for a long time, especially in such a competitive market. He arrived to see Dr Chen and shared that his experience was nothing but amazing. Dr Chen was extremely kind and patient through his services, he was also always very honest and caring about the work he was providing. He always ensured that you were comfortable in his chair and that no pain was felt. The office in itself is also very clean and modern, they do such an amazing job to ensure that you feel comfortable and happy with the job provided. This office is surely recommended and I’m sure Dr Chen will also make you feel at home.

After reading all of the positive reviews online I booked an appointment for my husband and I with Judy and Cathy Lee. From the moment I walked in it was a 10/10 dental experience. Most welcoming dentist I have ever been too! Front desk staff were helpful and welcoming, Cathy was kind, patient, caring, listened to my dental concerns and talked me through every step of the way. Felt safe with the covid protocols in place. I immediately scheduled my 6 month check-up! Highly recommend 1311 Jackson ave dental!

If I could give more stars on this review, I absolutely would. After a lifelong fear of the dentist, they made me feel so comfortable and welcome. Even though I was there for the first time, I was treated like I had been coming for years. I felt so taken care of and appreciated as a patient. I ended up needing to have a wisdom tooth extracted the day of my visit and although that’s not the most fun thing in the world, Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Chen made the experience the best that it could be. Besides the exceptional care, prices are extremely reasonable too. It felt great not to have to sacrifice good treatment for a more affordable price. I will absolutely be coming back to Jackson Ave Dental for all of my dental needs. I cannot speak highly enough of them!

Jeffrey Y. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Went to Dr. Chen’s office for a routine cleaning and X-ray. The office is brand new, so all the equipment inside was very new. The chairs were comfortable and nice. Dr. Chen is very good and super passionate about dentistry. I told him I was interested in getting Invisalign, so showed me on his computer the entire process via animations which was pretty cool. He also told me his place is currently charging only $2999 for Invisalign which is a lot cheaper than other dental practices. Overall, great experience. He does a very thorough job in the cleaning and he takes it serious.

Victoria J. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I never thought I would feel compelled to leave a review for a dentist, but here I am. David and the receptionist were pleasant as could be and I was in and out as a new patient in under 45 minutes. I had budgeted much more time than that and was thrilled to be on my way. David had a light hand, and did not rush through the cleaning. I’ll be back in 6 months!

I had been long overdue for a dental exam, Dr.Chen was very understanding and accommodating. Check in process was seamless and I was seen right away! The office was very pleasant, and I was confident in all Covid safety protocols being followed. My procedure is broken up into 2 visits, so I will update my review based on the end result. Otherwise, so far so good!

I have been coming to Dr. Chen for general dentistry for close to a year and have been very satisfied with my experience with this dental office. Overall, the staff is very friendly and the office is clean with precautionary measures in place to keep me comfortable/safe during my visit. Recently, I had some crown work done by Dr. Cathy Lee. She was very personable and meticulous in her craft. When I came back to get the temporary crown replaced with permanent, it was a perfect color match and fit, needing only minor adjustments to match my bite. I feel very confident in recommending her without hesitation. I will definitely ask for Dr. Lee on my next visit.

William C. from Oyster Bay, NY (Source: Yelp)


Stopped by Dr. Chen’s office and I was amazed at how nice and clean it was. Everything was new and organized. The office atmosphere is really relaxing. They even had a Nespresso machine in the waiting area! Dr. Chen is very professional and gives you the time and day you deserve as a patient. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.


Hi I'm Dr. Chen and despite my looks, I've accumulated just about ten years in my profession already. After college I worked as a dental assistant for a few years before going off to dental school. I received my DDS from Columbia University College of Dental Medicine and while there I learned an incredibly valuable lesson. There is absolutely nothing that you can't do as long as you pursue it with pure intentions. I'm looking to establish myself in Long Island City for a plethora of reasons but some of the major ones being... I'm a Queens native and always will be. I believe that we should always take care of our own and I consider everyone in Queens to be a part of my community and my family. Benedict Anderson had a big influence on that one! So why not come check us out? Our vision is to build a place where our patients and staff can't possibly imagine being anywhere else.
