Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

David S. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I are prodigals who returned to Dr. Chen’s practice and office with glee! The only reason we left was because of our HMO and boy were we sorry. Sometimes you have to tuck your tail and admit you made a mistake. Bonnie and Dr. Chen made me feel like I’d never left with their warmth, caring and professionalism I’d come to appreciate from this place in the past. You won’t find a better or less painful dental experience, mark my words. You will feel a difference just walking into the door where you’ll truly feel like “family.” Now I am at ease once again and Dr. Chen fixed what another office had botched in my mouth. Bonnie (who has earned a bottle of wine), and your staff are friendly, professional, caring and are assets to this office. My husband will be glad to be back when he visits you in February. Cannot thank you all enough for being YOU! Susan Schulman

The staff was super nice and very accommodating. The high tech office was very clean – a very nice atmosphere, The dentist was friendly and explained the problem with my teeth as well as showed me the problem areas. He offered several options with pros and cons so I felt very well informed to make a decision. I highly recommend this dental office.

A great dentist, who really cares and does excellent work. The office staff is really great, too. I had a really bad experience with another dentist and Dr. Chen graciously fixed the problem. When there are many dentists to choose from, why not choose the best!!

Christopher R. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


From my last dentist this has been a upgrade. Very Friendly staff and fast service. No one pressures you to anything. Everyone from the time you enter to the time you leave are very friendly. I need some work on my mouth and got shown what needs to be done and how long and even how much. Everything is up front. Non of that hide stuff and add thing to you. Bonnie helped me out showing me everything pricing different types of crowns and even what the difference of from my benefit so I know everything. I highly recommend this place.

Brea delta dental staff are all excellent. They take there time to care for your needs. I have visited the Brea delta dental office on two separate occasions, both times I was well greeted. The doctors working on my teeth made sure I was aware of each step that would take place And made sure I was comfortable at all time. I appreciate all your care given. Thank you

Jordan C. from Temecula, CA (Source: Yelp)


I would like to thank the Brea Family Dental Center for a amazing experience! I called them to help me with a very unfortunate situation with damaging my three front teeth in an accident. First they fit me in to their very busy schedule which was greatly appreciated due to the way my appearance was. Then from the time I went into the office and left every single person there including the office staff of which Bonnie Works was amazing to the dental assistants and dentist made me feel comfortable in a very uncomfortable situation. There prices were very reasonable and they even offered me financing to help. I would highly recommend Brea Family Dental to anyone who needs dental work.

Fred R. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Wow, I was lucky to find this office. It’s furnished nicely with all the modern conveniences. I was able to make appointments with ease as they were happy to accommodate my schedule. I’m a little uneasy at any dentist but despite a deep cleaning and some serious dental work, I was always comfortable. Nothing was rushed. The people are professional, courteous and eager to please. Kudos go to Nancy, the lead assistant; Tonia is the Treatment and Financial Coordinator; Bonnie is the Operational Manager; and, of course, Dr. Chen, who carefully explains what he is doing and why he is doing it – all with no pain. If you’re looking for a dental office for the whole family or just for yourself, the Brea Family Dental Center is the place to go.

I rarely write reviews- but I feel this office deserves one. They go out of their way to make you comfortable. I spoke with Tonia Barnett, she took time and answered all my questions regarding my Insurance and explained what I would be expecting during my appointment. Very friendly- It’s been awhile since I’ve been to the dentist so I was expecting the worst. Turns out, I just needed a few fillings and a cleaning. I took the day off work and wanted everything done today. They accommodated me and worked me on to Dr. Le’s schedule. Awesome Dentist by the way and his assistant Carmen fabulous! Very clean office with great costumer service. I live one and half hours away and I’ll be coming back when I’m in town.

Love this dental care.!!! I have been to so many I stop going for years begin so disappointed with dental service. I found them by friend and Yelp reviews. Let me just say yelp review them 5 stars, but I would give them 10stars if it let me. Finally a dental center that cares are friendly and just a lively environment to be in. I am finally getting my braces and full dental care hear and never changing. If you don’t like your dental place I highly recommend you try them you won’t regarded. love this place

Rick I. from Diamond Bar, CA (Source: Yelp)


Ok….. so I’ve been in fear of dentists ever since I was a child. After visiting Brea Family Dental Center for several treatments, I now have pearly white teeth and no longer in fear of having work done in mouth. The staff and doctors all treated me like family. The dental office was super clean and welcoming. They offer lots of goodies like beverages, charging stations, and reading materials. My treatment consisted of a root canal, deep cleaning, and other miscellaneous work. My worst fear was the pain I was about to endure. Ironically, I didn’t feel any pain or discomfort. The detailed step by step explanation, music, tv, and my favorite gas….. I was just fine. The staff at Brea Family Dental Center was absolutely amazing. Always smiling and cheerful. Knowing the fact that I was frightened of the procedures, they treated me gently and helped me feel calm. I normally never write reviews or recommendations on yelp except places that I truly believe to be providing the best work. Thank you very much to the staff and doctors at Brea Family Dental Center.

On short notice, I was able to get an appointment with this office without worrying about having insurance coverage. This was great as I was in need of immediate care and had a flexible schedule. Once I arrived, I was warmly greeted by staff from the front desk to the patient room as I went through my situation with the nurses and hygienist. You’ll notice how advanced the technology used by this office is and how quickly you can receive a diagnosis. Don’t be surprised by the lack of customer service that does not match their investment in nice equipment.There’s also huge attention made to keeping everything sanitary and presentable. I’m someone who likes a clean office. I also like to know what’s going on and appreciated the thorough work of Nicole, the hygienist, as she explained my mouth condition. There were even instant x-rays to show exactly what was going on which made going over treatment options with Dr. Chen easier to understand.

From the minute I walked in till the time I walked out, I felt the sense of professionalism, knowledge of Dr Lee and genuine concern and care for their patients. This is our family Dentistry. I highly recommend this clinic if you ever need a great dentist.

Celeste C. from Placentia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just recently had the most amazing experience at this office. From the moment I walked in, I was greeted with a very very comfortable waiting room filled with refreshments, relevant magazines and even a charging station. The overall aesthetic of the office really separates this business from all others. However what really makes Brea Family Dental special, is the level of commitment they exhibit towards their patients in the realms of care and comfort. I was seen by Nicole, the hygienist, who was sweet, friendly and incredibly quick! She informed me of any issues I had, explained them really well. Now I know I have to floss A LOT more lol. Overall an amazing place, would recommend to anyone. Love the staff and their commitment to patient care.

Lee H. from Coronado, San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very thankful for this great dentist’s office! Very kind and caring people work there, very clean and welcoming environment, and very knowledgeable, skilled and empathetic dentists and assistants. From reception to the cleaning to the dental work – wonderful experience all-around. I would recommend this office to anyone in the area. Finding a great dentist can be very difficult and even stressful – look no further! Visit Brea Family Dental, you won’t be disappointed.

Heather P. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have a fear of Dentists, always have (Bad experience when I was younger). I did my research and the Brea Family Dental Center did not disappoint. They were KIND, ATTENTIVE, and understanding of my hesitations. This was honestly this was the best dental experience I have ever had. They made me comfortable and were just a pleasure. I was a new patient, my name was on a sign welcoming me when I arrived. The staff was friendly, the billing conversation was non-complicated. Dr. Lee – WOW, just WOW. I am actually looking forward to going back!

Joaquin Garcia (Source: Facebook)


From beginning to end it was good customer service. They told me everything I needed to know in detail and answered a lot of my questions before I even thought of asking them. There were no long waits and they got to me right away. I can say treatment and care was of top quality. They will not rush you and they will take their time with you. Overall, I enjoyed my experience the two times I was there. Will be coming back

Rose Valle D. from West Covina, CA (Source: Yelp)


Returned to get a root canal today and Dr Chong was amazing. Excellent job and thorough with keeping me informed of what he was doing and expecting. Then, Dr Chen stepped in after the root canal to clean up the rest of the tooth, he able to save my tooth. Was able to fill another tooth in the same section. No pain at all from both these docs. H was also amazing! Nancy and Mary were equally awesome and kept me calm. Constantly asked how I was doing and feeling. Very friendly ladies and thorough. Michelle very informative and also made me feel good about the procedures and looking after what was good for me as far as financially. Thank you all! Great job!

I had back to back pregnancies and with that I was over due for some dental work and needed to get 3 crowns ( in a row), some replaced and some new in addition to a cavity filled. I had signed up to do all of the work at once with a 3 hour appointment. Doctor Lee was fast, efficient and gentle as possible. He was constantly asking if I was okay and comfortable. Within a few hours after I left he called me to see how I was doing. Going to the dentist is never fun, however if you have to go, Doctor Lee and his staff are fantastic!

This is the best dentist office around town. I had the best overall experience from beginning to end. The entire office went out of their way to make you feel at home, took the time to address your questions/concerns and treated you like part of the family. You will not regret coming here. This place is awesome.

Kim G. from Brea, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this dental office. It feels like home, every time I walk in they remember me. It is gorgeous and clean in here as well. The front desk is truly friendly, and welcoming. I can’t believe they text me for my birthday- they are all genuine sweet hearts including the dentists Kalvan Chen ! No games or bs here they give good pricing and accept insurance. Everything is covered, they have options also. Sometimes they ask me if I want to purchase Invisalign or something, and I just tell them flat out I don’t want it can’t afford it right now, so they don’t pressure me. I like that they give me options, and honest answers. They keep it super to the point and real here. The one time I needed to replace a porcelain filing the doctor was soooo quick, and painless. But I must admit I love coming to the dentist and don’t mind dental work I’m used to it. Even when they dig for my cleaning I don’t mind it, but if your pain tolerance is somewhat low just feel comfortable in knowing they constantly ask if you’re okay and check in with you. Which is nice even for someone with a high tolerance, it shows that they have the right empathetic employees in place. This visit I had a new hygienist, they had notified me about two weeks before my appointment to let me know that their regular Alana had found a job closer to home. I loved Alana , but I went trusting they would have as great of a new hygienist in her place, Kristen is awesome! I’m happy that I went and it was such a breeze. They take the time to explain how to clean properly, and the effects of good health care. More impressively they hire the best dental hygienist who aren’t fresh out of school they have experience, and listen to your every need or question. Overall; I strongly suggest checking out this office if you’re searching for a high end state of the art dental office, that also has employees who seem like they genuinely love their job and are happy to be there! Can’t wait for my next cleaning

Lisa K. from Brea, CA (Source: Yelp)


I did take a break and went to a different dentist when I was uninsured and one when I had a dental HMO and that was a mistake. I ended up coming back to Dr. Chen and Dr. Lo to have that work fixed and get a proper cleaning. After having learned an expensive lesson, it’s better to keep going to the same good dentist even if you have to pay cash for a bit (hey CareCredit is handy) it ends up saving you money in the long run. My crowns have lasted forever from here, and they always give me an honest evaluation of if my fillings will need to be a crown or not in the future so I can plan ahead. They also consult on TMJ Disorder which is handy and hard to find. So come here you won’t regret it. Plus free coffee and water and charging stations and HDTV while you get worked on. Plus everyone is fun to talk to.

I’ve only been a patient for a little while, but I already love this place! The facility looks great and the staff is absolutely wonderful. They are so kind and they do a wonderful job at explaining procedures. They genuinely care for the well being of their patients. 100% recommend!

Dr. CHEN AND I reached an agreement to proceed slowly in developing a plan of reclaiming my mouth by rebuilding a new upper partial that will give me a decent smile and functional chewing capability, while we evaluate the teeth to be pulled for implants that will provide a solid foundation for a complete upper denture that will be locked in place !! I am exceedingly happy with the discussion and decision, and it looks like I am finally going to have a good mouth again and one that I will be able to have a decent smile along with a fully functional mouth for chewing my food !! Also, I think I will be able to kiss my new Companion and potential Wife the way I want to as well as having her completely satisfied with kissing me !! Thank you once again for the work to be done, I am excited !!!

My 91year old mother went in to Brea Family Dental for a cleaning. The hygienist, Stephanie, was kind and gentle. Also taking into account her hard of hearing. Stephanie did a very good job. Would go again

Martha T. from La Habra, CA (Source: Yelp)


I wish there were more than 5 stars. Dr Chen is amazing! Not only is he an excellent dentist but he’s an amazing human being! One of those people that you rarely come across. He helped me with my major dental problems like no one else could! Thank you Dr Chen!! Thank you also to Bonnie, who is very understanding and patient!! Huge thanks and major kudos for every one at Brea Family Dental! Great dentist and awesome atmosphere and service.

Chris K. from Sherman Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came in to Brea Family Dental to get my crown and filling redone. Upon entering I was greeted with smiles by the front staff and the cleanest lobby! They have complimentary water bottles and stations to charge your phone. Dr. Le and Dr. Chen made sure I was taken care of. I’m fearful of going to the dentist, but they made sure I was I comfortable and that I wasn’t in any pain or discomfort. I will definitely be recommending my friends to come here. Thank you!

Alexandra C. from Brea, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Brea Family Dental since I was a little girl and now my children are coming here along with myself still and now my husband! I am always so impressed with the entire office staff and doctors and hygienists. Everyone is so incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. Every question I ask I receive an answer with no feeling of “How could I not know this already” as I have encountered before at wether it’s a work place environment or a different doctors office. This will always and forever be our dentists office!! Thank you so much Brea Family Dental for all your hard work and making everyone who comes in feel like family!

Adam H. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very friendly staff ! They get you in and out quickly. Usually my dentist experience have taken so long in the waiting room I fall a sleep as well as when you finally get int the chair to be put in pain and wait for ever. This dentists the opposite they take great care of you and make it a great experience. My first time not feeling the pain the dentist knows what they are doing and make sure your comfortable.

Ariel Castaneda  (Source: Google)


I was looking online to find a new dentist and I saw that Brea Family Dental Center had many great reviews, so I thought I would give them a try. I’m so happy I did! The staff is incredibly kind and they do a great job at explaining the process of any treatment being done. You can tell that they care about the well being of their patients. I would 100% recommend coming here.

Tessa Waggoner (Source: Google)


I had a really good experience here. The reviews are legit. They really do try to go above and beyond in regards to customer service. Dr.Chen runs a great office with a fantastic staff. Each and every person who accommodated me was courteous, kind, and helpful. They seem well educated and they function well. I will definitely go back and I highly recommend. This is the best dental office I have been to. They make sure not to hurt you too. There is no reason to hesitate coming here. If I say to many good things it will sound fake but they do very well here. Through my family’s residence in California we loved this dentist office. It’s a safe bet and they genuinely care about your well being. Thanks guys!

Winona Z. from Temple City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Brea Family Dental Center is by far the best dentistry office I’ve ever been to. I have always been afraid of dentists and tooth pain because of some terrible, terrible experiences that I have had in the past, so going in I was very nervous. But the staff were friendly and comforting! During my visits, they would always check on me periodically to make sure I was feeling no pain or discomfort. I highly recommend going here for people who are scared of tooth pain or anyone in general because the staff is amazing at what they do! Shout out to Nancy and Mary for being so awesome and making these visits fun rather than scary!!!

Stacy J. from Orange County, CA (Source: Yelp)


The staff at Brea Family Dental is amazing. I have been going to Dr. Chen for at least 10 years and everyone is friendly and always smiling. The office is clean and the decor is calming which carries over to the dental chair. I am always relaxed and can watch my favorite TV show while having a procedure done. When in the chair, Dr. Chen always explains what he is doing so I know exactly what is going on. Then, during the procedure he asks if I’m ok. He is very reassuring and gentle. I have recommended many people to him and they have also been happy with Brea Family Dental. I appreciate Dr. Chen’s honesty and trust his work. The staff must also appreciate him because I have never seen anyone have a bad day. I will continue to go to Brea Family Dental for many years to come.

Martha F. Theobald (Source: Facebook)


Very professional they explain everything they do in detail. Almost painless shots. Had fractured tooth removed everything went great. Great Dentists Dr Gropos was excellent. Dr Chen great as always. Everyone in office very good helpful relaxing.

Melisa Stewart (Source: Google)


Very warm and welcoming environment. The first person we were greeted by, Monica was very polite and charming. She showed us around the practice and told us about each of the dentists/ specialists and what they specialize in. Hygienists Kristen and Nancy were also very kind and patient with my four years old son. They knew how to get him to cooperate and be as calm as possible. I would recommend anyone to go here. Also, they have great options for persons without dental insurance but need a checkup or some dental procedure done.

Leslie W. from Brea, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to the Brea Family Dental Center for a few years, it is always a relief to find a medical office that you trust! I don’t think I have ever waited for more than a few minutes at an appointment (I work in a doctor’s office and understand when this happens), but they are always on time. The office is super clean, from the waiting room to the restroom to the exam room, which is important to me. More importantly, the staff is so welcoming and nice- any questions you have, they are there to help! I would recommend this office to everyone!


After Dr. Chen graduated from high school in Hawaii, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue his undergraduate and graduate studies at University of Southern California. He graduated with his doctorate degree in 1993 from the U.S.C. School of Dentistry. Dr. Chen chose to pursue his career as a dentist because he loved the delicate work required by the profession and the idea of making patients' teeth healthier and prettier. He enjoys practicing dentistry and has been in private practice for the past 19 years. He maintains and updates all the current techniques and materials by participating in study clubs and attending many major dental conferences.
